La Guérinière, the ideal holiday destination!
Dreaming of a little corner of paradise to spend your holiday in the Vendée? The charming village of La Guérinière will tick all your boxes. Right in the centre of the island of Noirmoutier, it reveals a remarkable diversity of landscapes: beaches of soft fine sand, a forest overlooking the ocean, an oyster harbour gently lulled by the rhythm of the waves... Can’t you just see yourself there?
And it’s in the heart of this unspoilt environment that we’re waiting for you and for a stay that will take you far away from the everyday. Bike rides, lazing with your toes in the covered swimming pool, sunbathing on the terrace of your cottage... A camping holiday with Sandaya is all that and so much more! Fancy adding a touch of the exotic to your stay? Book one of our quirky accommodation options to truly cut yourself off from the daily routine. One thing is certain; you won’t forget your camping stay on the island of Noirmoutier in a hurry!
Visit La Guérinière with the family
La Guérinière has the particularity of being at the narrowest point of the island of Noirmoutier: so the ocean is always close at hand! From the La Cantine beach to that of Les Sables d’Or, the sand is gently shelving and the currents are weak; which makes it the perfect place to enjoy a great afternoon’s bathing with the family!
And for a journey to the other side of the world without leaving the Vendée, take the kids off to visit the butterflies of the Île aux Papillons, just north of La Guérinière. In this tropical glasshouse, the only one of its kind, some 1,000 butterflies from all corners of the world live in perfect freedom: an amazing spectacle that’s not to be missed!
Visit La Guérinière as a couple
If you’re off to share a romantic holiday on Noirmoutier, we have the perfect programme for your trip to La Guérinière!
After breakfast on your terrace, hire a bike directly from the campsite and set off for the centre of the island. You then have two choices: to the east, discover the oyster harbour at Le Bonhomme, the largest on the island. Giving directly onto the Bourgneuf Bay, its picturesque fishermen’s huts beckon you to enjoy a tasting looking out over the ocean! To the west, prepare for a total change of scene with the delightful woodland at Les Éloux. Rising to a high point of 23m, it offers a series of beautiful views over the sparkling beaches. So, how about a picnic made for two?
