Le Pin Parasol

from £19.65 to £64.40 Per unit

Overview

A truly excellent family-owned site, built and run to highest standards.

In a superb location, away from coastal hassle, with a great indoor pool and 5 waterslides. The relaxed atmosphere is perfect for couples, young families, walkers, cyclists, anglers and canoeists alike. Modern facilities are surrounded by unspoilt farmland and the site enjoys a lovely rural location adjacent to a large lake, ideal for a variety of leisure activities.

Very popular with members, rather like a Club site abroad, and in many members’ opinion the best site in the Vendée. Early booking is recommended for high season to avoid disappointment.

Owned and run by the Martineau and Garandeau family, English spoken.

This review is for Le Pin Parasol

We are a family of 5 with the youngest child being just 3 years of age and this site suited us perfectly. The children are very well catered for with lots of activities to do.The pool complex is outstanding, both safe for the youngest but exciting waterslides for the older ones. The amenities are well kept and the pitch sizes are very good. The only criticism we have was the bar service in the evening, the poor staff were very overworked with long queues and not enough staff to cope with the capacity for peak periods. No local bars or restaurants if you like to eat out. We tried the beach at St Gilles and it was stunning with lots of surfers for the kids to watch. Would definitely recommend the site as we are considering booking again for 2 weeks next Aug.

Best site we've ever stayed at as a family with young children (under 12).

This review is for Le Pin Parasol

Best site we've ever stayed at as a family with young children (under 12). The pitches are generous and the facilities are spotless. The table tennis is a focal point for the older kids in the evening. Daily special entertainment great including trampolines. Also handy for the coast and great for middle-aged dad cycling! Recommend a trip to Apremont.

This review is for Le Pin Parasol

We have 2 children aged 7 and 5 and have just come back from spending 2 weeks at Pin Parasol, which was superb. The facilities were immaculate and cleaned 4 times a day as was the pool area, fitness room and bar/cafe. The grounds were also very neat and tidy. The kids club was great, the staff were professional and very friendly.. All reception staff, bar staff and pool attendants we also extremely helpful and polite. The lakes is accessible from the campsite and is about a 10minute walk through the woods, were there is a lovely restaurant and views. Well recommended, in fact we're booking again for next year.
