Book your spot for a campsite holiday near La Roche sur Yon

You’ve decided to set off to conquer the Vendée with a Sandaya camping holiday? Excellent idea. You’re certain to find a campsite rental that is exactly what you’re looking for, from a camping pitch under the stars to a comfortable fully-equipped cottage to sleep 2, 4 or even 6 people. Right next to the ocean beaches, your campsite on the Atlantic coast is the perfect gateway to explore some of the most fabulous Vendée landscapes along the road leading to La Roche-sur-Yon. Created by Napoleon in 1804, this little city is ideally placed between Nantes and La Rochelle. The administrative centre for the Vendée department, the town offers the perfect balance of attractive urban development and glorious nature, with superb walks through its streets and along the footpaths by the river. On foot or by bike, don’t miss this chance to take the family to visit some of its emblematic sites, including the National Stud with its vast park in the very heart of the town, its Italian-style theatre, the many basilicas and traditional markets selling fresh produce. Plus, of course, the famous Place Napoleon where the children will be surprised to discover the fabulous mechanical animals that come to life as they look on in wide-eyed amazement! And when you return to the campsite, the day is far from over: a dip in the covered and heated swimming pool, a game of volleyball on the multisports ground or the special entertainment on the campsite stage. Over to you to put together your own personal programme for the evening!

Seaside campsite

With direct access to the ocean beaches your campsite in the Vendée invites you to spend a holiday right at the water’s edge! After a day spent visiting La Roche-sur-Yon and its surrounding area, enjoy lazing on the soft fine sand of the beaches or a refreshing moment bathing in the ocean waves. The cradle for sailing and board sports, the Atlantic coast is the perfect place to learn to kitesurf, windsurf or simply to get out on the water and explore by canoe-kayak. You prefer freshwater rather than the salty tang of the sea? Your campsite with water park offers a fabulous opportunity to take a dive into the heated waters of its covered or open-air swimming pools, take a trip back to your childhood as you shoot down the waterslides or relax with a spot of balneotherapy in the whirlpool baths!

Explore the Yon valley

What makes La Roche-sur-Yon so very special? Its exceptional situation in the heart of a wonderful natural setting with its lush green bocage, a patchwork of small copses, fields, hedges and refreshing streams. Flowing through La Roche-sur-Yon from north to south, the river that gave the town its name meanders gently through the green valley that surrounds the town. Ending its journey in the Piquet gorge, not far from your Sandaya campsite in the Vendée, the Yon and its banks offer visitors some forty hectares of fabulous nature. So head off with the family to explore along the cycle tracks and footpaths that wend their way through the area. Take a break to visit the Chaos du Piquet, a natural site with the remains of a former spinning mill, a wonderful opportunity to appreciate all the unspoilt beauty of the Yon Valley. Settle down on its banks, in the heart of the lower Vendée countryside, to enjoy a delicious picnic in the tranquillity of your peaceful surroundings before heading back towards the campsite.
