A 5-star campsite in La Tranche sur Mer
Les Blancs Chênes is a 5-star campsite operated by the Vagues Océanes Group. It lies South of the Vendée region, in the community of seaside resort La Tranche sur Mer and near the road to la Roche sur Yon. With its huge water park and its luxury rentals, this establishment is one of the most popular destinations on the Côte de Lumière...
A campsite in the heart of the Marais Poitevin
The campsite les Blancs Chênes lies in the middle of wet fields around which some of the thousands of channels of the Marais Poitevin have been developed. The situation of this 5-star campsite in La Tranche sur Mer, without any immediate vis-a-vis, might suggest that you can come here to rest, in the peace and quiet of this establishment at not even 2 kilometres from the nearest fine sandy beach.
Without being inaccurate, we should nevertheless nuance this statement. The club atmosphere that evokes this exceptional establishment guarantees to residents who come to stay here an active holiday, with many fun events and activities for young and old, and this, six days a week in season, both during the day and in the evenings.
Apart from the traditional lawned and green pitches to accommodate campers and their tents or caravans, this establishment in the Vendée also proposes many comfortable chalets and mobile homes, and these are mostly last generation and fully equipped rentals.
The shops and services on les Blancs Chênes include a restaurant, a bar, a small supermarket, a takeaway service and an internet access you have to pay for.
At two steps from the sea
Many campers use the shuttle bus from the campsite to reach the beaches of the coast of La Tranche sur Mer in a few minutes, but others prefer going to the water park of les Blancs Chênes to swim or indulge in idleness. It must be said that with its five heated pools extending over more than 600 m², this park is one of the largest water parks in the Vendée.
Around the outdoor pools and the indoor pool, there's a fun water zone for toddlers of almost 100 m², several water slides as well as a whirlpool and a sauna.
Like the sauna, the campsite's wellness centre is the perfect place to relax and to indulge yourself. A wide range of body and facial treatments are proposed, as well as beauty care and a hair cut, as the campsite has its own hair salon.
Other equipments and leisure facilities include a games room, an outdoor playground, a mini-golf, a multi sports ground, a fitness room, tennis courts, table tennis tables and a jeu-de-boules court.
For an unforgettable holiday in the Vendée
Les Blancs Chênes enjoys a great geographical location, near the road linking the seaside resort of La Tranche sur Mer to the big city of La Roche sur Yon, and in the heart of a quiet and pleasant natural environment, without any neighbours.
While a shuttle bus connects the campsite to the beaches of La Tranche sur Mer in July and August, guests can also discover many other sights in the Vendée, but also those of the neighbouring coastal Department, the Charente Maritime.
Thus, the port of La Rochelle is less than an hour's drive from the campsite, and it doesn't take much more to reach île de Re, two of the most popular and busiest sites on the Charente Coast.
Another important site is the Marais Poitevin, running over almost hundred thousand acres between the South of the Vendée and the North of the Poitou Charente. The Green Venice, nickname given to this Regional Nature Park certified 'Grand Site de France', can be visited by boat or canoe.
Finally, guests staying on les Blancs Chênes have the opportunity to go to Cairn, the prehistoric centre of Saint Hilaire la Forêt, at 16 kilometres, the aquarium of Talmont Saint Hilaire, at 37 kilometres, or Puy du Fou, at 95 kilometres from La Tranche sur Mer.
