La Forêt, a high-end modern resort in Saint Jean de Monts

Near the Le Pont d’Yeu beach, between Saint Jean de Monts and Notre Dame de Monts, in the Vendée, the environmentally friendly resort La Forêt is located. This high-end establishment, rated 4 star, has been vastly transformed in recent years. Now, it offers holidaymakers leading facilities, entirely within a fully integrated environmentally friendly approach.

An environmentally friendly outdoor establishment

Holding the Clef Verte label since 2011 (Green Key - the leading international sustainable tourism label), La Forêt is an outdoor establishment, located in the Vendée, on the Côte de Lumière (Vendée coast). It has fully integrated the sustainable tourism development principles within its business strategy. An eco-friendly campsite on a human scale, it occupies grounds adjoining the Pays de Monts national forest. Holidaymakers can go through it in barely 500 metres. They may take a footpath with pines and wild flowers running alongside, to reach the Le Pont d’Yeu beach. This expanse of sand stretches over several kilometres, between the seaside resorts of Saint Jean de Monts and Notre Dame de Monts.

The direct beach access is a powerful argument in favour of this establishment. All the more so with the size of this beach, enabling everyone to have their own privacy, children being free to fly kites or even build majestic sandcastles here. You can also do other more nautical and sports-based activities, such as kitesufing or even bodyboarding. A riding centre, located not far from the campsite and the beach also gives you the chance for horse riding on the sand.

From the start of the 2023 season, holidaymakers will be able to find a leading Premium area on this establishment. It has been custom-designed by one of the leading camping and caravanning sector architects. Taking the name “Les villas du Bois Marin”, this new area groups together in a wooded and lush setting, timber villas with spacious outdoor terraces, having a garden furniture set and Jacuzzi. With vast openings onto the outdoors, these villas have wide panoramic windows, enabling you to let the light in.

More than just a campsite in Saint Jean de Monts, a living garden in the Vendée

Within this Premium area, above all luxury depends upon species harmony and the integration of the accommodation with nature. A further influential factor is also the size of given habitats, such as the private gardens (patios). Luxury is also highlighted by the unique character of the villas (specially made for the La Forêt campsite), and the reduction of the campsite’s total number of pitches to 41. This offers holidaymakers far more indoor and outdoor accommodation space.

A genuine living garden, La Forêt stretches over almost a hectare, where more than around 50 different tree species have been planted. This establishment is peaceful, family-orientated and environmentally friendly. It is monitored 24 hours a day, for increased security and tranquillity. On-site, you can stock up on fresh milk, bread and sweetbreads and buns in the morning. Confectionery, ice creams, cool drinks, vins de pays (regional wines using permitted grape varieties and meeting quality and standards requirements) and a takeaway snack service are also available during the day. If you need them, all required shops are located within a one kilometre radius of the campsite.

Moreover, the Resort La Forêt campsite has a swimming area, comprised of a swimming pool and paddling pool. Both pools are heated to 28°C. There is also a Zen nature area, with a jacuzzi and wellness area, where a qualified masseuse will lavish treatments upon you, every week during the high season. There is also a children’s play area, table tennis tables, games room and billiard table on-site.

A perfect starting point to discover the treasures of the Vendée

A stay on the La Forêt campsite in Saint Jean de Monts is a perfect opportunity to discover the Vendée and its multitude of treasures. A cycle track is located at the campsite entrance. Known as “Velodyssée”, it runs along the Vendée coast for its entirety, and is linked to numerous other cycle routes across the area. In total, you can pedal over nearly 1,000 kilometres of tracks within the department entirely safely! To make the most of these, La Forêt has an on-site bicycle hire service!

A seaside resort of leading importance in the Vendée, Saint Jean de Monts accommodates numerous summer events. These include Kids Folies (exhibitions, shows and workshops) and Atlantique Zen (a range of Zen themed activities, conferences, workshops, Zen breaks). The Planet Beach spa and other attractions and festivals (including the La Déferlante arts and music festival) are also here. On its squares, a multitude of water sports activities are on offer: sand yachting, windsurfing, kitesurfing, surfing etc. It is also a Mecca for thalassotherapy in the Vendée.

Lastly, during your stay on the Saint Jean de Monts campsite, you can go to the Puy du Fou adventure park. Here you thus discover the shows on the most famous historical theme park in the Vendée. Equally, you could visit the Ile de Noirmoutier peninsula island, the Ile d’Yeu island or even the seaside resorts of Les Sables d’Olonne, La Tranche sur Mer and Saint Gilles Croix de Vie. In the south of the department, the Marais Poitevin Natural Regional Park is also a must-see.
