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.

Lovely site. Very clean and well kept. This was our 3rd visit to the site with our teenagers.

This review is for Le Pin Parasol 'Sensations'

Lovely site. Very clean and well kept. This was our 3rd visit to the site with our teenagers. They have extended the site to include 'Nature & Sens' which we were able to visit and really enjoyed the pool areas. Also visited Le Grande Defi & the Auberge by the lake (about 15 mins walk). Both excellent. Look forward to returning.

This review is for Le Pin Parasol 'Sensations'

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 'Sensations'

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.
