Talmont-Saint-Hilaire, the ideal holiday destination
In the Vendée, holidays are for enjoying all year round: on the terrace of a restaurant with delicious local flavour, along the coast with its undulating sand dunes or out and about exploring the pine forests that back onto the Atlantic Ocean. During your summer stay, take a deep breath of sea air here in the Vendée and enjoy the refreshing wellness therapy offered by its salty tang!
Between Les Sables-d’Olonne and the Marais Poitevin, Talmont-Saint-Hilaire makes the ideal setting to get away from it all and recharge the batteries! Here within your campsite in the Vendée, holidays mean that fabulous combination of activities for all and a very special natural setting. And whilst you’ll love the advantage of being right next to the beach, you’ll also have all the joys of the vast water park for bathing in the open air or in the covered swimming pools. After a wonderful dinner in the campsite restaurant, it’s time to return to your tent or campervan as the day gently comes to an end. Fancy maximum comfort and space? Discover our fully-equipped mobile homes for a truly carefree stay!
Visit Talmont-Saint-Hilaire with the family
Beaches, watersports, free entertainment, aquarium, maze... your family stay in Talmont-Saint-Hilaire looks set to be filled with adventure! After a picnic as you dangle your toes in the ocean waves, it’s time to head for the Château de Talmont to play princesses and knights in armour. The former residence of Richard the Lionheart is today a fabulous centre for fêtes and entertainment for all the family!
In summer, you’ll be able to join in the great medieval festival organised each year and watch the knights as they give battle, have a go at calligraphy and take aim with a crossbow. The most courageous amongst you can even brave the dramatic escape game organised in the castle’s underground passages!
Visit Talmont-Saint-Hilaire as a couple
You’ve chosen the Vendée for your next romantic getaway together? You certainly won’t be disappointed! Between sunbathing by the campsite swimming pools, windsurfing lessons for two and those long walks arm-in-arm along the ocean shore, you’re heading for a holiday with a wealth of surprises to discover.
But if there’s one spot that should be top of the list of places to explore during your holiday in Talmont-Saint-Hilaire, it’s the Payré estuary! An officially listed “Grand Ensemble Naturel”, the Havre du Payré, as the Vendée folk call it, is nothing if not exceptional. With its glorious natural landscapes nestling between golden dunes and lush forest, come and explore on foot, by bike or even in a canoe!
