A 4-star campsite in La Tranche sur Mer
Les Blancs Chênes is a 4-star campsite, a member of the Vagues Océanes group. It lies in the south of the Vendée region, in the seaside town of La Tranche sur Mer and by the road to La Roche sur Yon. With its huge water park and its luxury rentals, this establishment is one of the most sought-after destinations on the Côte de Lumière...
A campsite at the heart of the Marais Poitevin
The campsite Les Blancs Chênes lies slap bang in the middle of the wet fields around which some of the thousands of channels of the Marais Poitevin marshlands have been developed. The situation of this 4-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 this exceptional establishment evokes guarantees residents who come to stay here an active holiday to say the least, with a variety of entertainment and fun activities for young and old alike, as much during the day as in the evening.
This Vendée establishment has a multitude of holiday rentals, chalets and mobile homes with all mod cons, modern and fully equipped. These include the following ranges: Premium, Archipel (specially designed for groups and large families), and Rio Top Presta, with its mobile homes with two bathrooms and two or three bedrooms. There is also the Petit Mousse range, suitable for young parents (with three bedrooms including one specially equipped for a baby).
The shops and services on Les Blancs Chênes include a restaurant, a bar, a small supermarket, a takeaway service and internet access you have to pay for. A Wi-Fi area located by the bar enables free Internet access for 30 minutes per day!
Just a stone’s throw from the seaside
Many campers use the shuttle bus from the campsite to reach the beaches on the La Tranche sur Mer coast in a few minutes, but others prefer going to the Les Blancs Chênes water park to swim or indulge in idleness. It should be said that with its five heated pools extending over more than 800 m², this park is one of the largest water parks in the Vendée.
Recently modernised, this water park has an outdoor lagoon with swimming river and hydrotherapy benches, indoor pool, water play area for the very young with a surface area approaching 100 m² and several water slides.
Amongst the other leisure equipment and facilities note the outdoor playground, inflatable play area. mini-golf course, multi-sport ground, ping-pong tables and pétanque court.
For an unforgettable holiday in the Vendée
Les Blancs Chênes enjoys a highly delightful geographical location, situated near the road linking the La Tranche sur Mer seaside resort to the large town of La Roche sur Yon, without any neighbours, and in the heart of immensely peaceful and pleasant natural surroundings.
A shuttle bus connects the campsite to the beaches of La Tranche sur Mer in July and August in a just few minutes. However, during their holiday, guests can also discover many other tourist attractions in the Vendée, but also those of the neighbouring coastal department, 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.
