Les Genets, a 5-star campsite in the Vendée
In Saint Jean de Monts lies one of the most beautiful campsites of Vendée. Ranked 5 stars and member of the Sun Marina chain, Les Genets offers ideal conditions for a successful holiday on the Côte de Lumière...
A campsite at 800 metres from the sea
Situated 800 metres from the beach of Saint Jean de Monts, les Genets extends over 7 hectares in a pleasantly flowered and carefully maintained pine forest. The town centre of this famous seaside resort of the Vendée lies 6 kilometres from here. This exceptional campsite features 388 pitches and some of these are today covered by mobile homes. Ideally positioned on the Côte de Lumière, the first shops are found at 700 metres and the centre of the seaside resort of Saint Hilaire de Riez is even closer than the centre of Saint Jean de Monts. The mobile homes are called cottages and chalets, depending on the surface area and the comfort level.
All of the rentals have a terrace, covered or not, according your wishes at the time of booking. The name of Côte de Lumière has not been chosen by chance, so it is recommended to choose a shaded accommodation, if you don't want to suffer from too much sun exposure. All mobile homes are however equipped with garden furniture and sun loungers.
Among the many shops and services of the establishment, we mention the bar/ restaurant permitting also to take away an important choice of dishes back to your rental or your pitch. There's also a grocery store as well as a WiFi network covering the entire property.
Like the Wild Wild West...
On camping Les Genets the Wild West is not only present in the Saloon, the area of the kids club, but also in its water park. The decoration of the water park, where you can swim and practice fun and sports water activities, seems to come straight out of a Western movie. It features an outdoor heated pool, an artificial river, a balneo pool with hydro massaging benches, an indoor heated pool with a whirlpool and four water slides. Finally, a 100 m² water playground is reserved for children.
Besides an outdoor playground, a multi sports ground, a jeu-de-boules court, table tennis, and tennis courts, this 5-star campsite in the Vendée offers a lot of other sports and fun facilities. A video games and billiards room advantageously completes these facilities to entertain young and old.
Note also that during the day and in the evenings, an entertainment team organizes many activities to divert the campers. From jeu-de-boules tournaments to dancing, there's something for all tastes and for all ages!
Saint Jean de Monts, important beach resort of the Vendée Coast
The situation of campsite Les Genets is idyllic for those who wish to spend a holiday by the sea in the Vendée. Located South of Saint Jean de Monts, one of the most important beach resorts of the Department, this establishment is only 800 metres from a huge fine sandy beach. It just takes a few minutes for the residents to get there on foot or by bike.
Saint Jean de Monts, just like many other resorts on the Vendée Coast, boasts a strong argument to attract tourists. It is a part of the Côte de Lumière and as such enjoys a micro climate, particular for the coastline of this Department. This micro-climate guarantees one of the highest sunshine rates on the Atlantic Coast, barely lower than the regions in the South of France!
The sun and the beach are the best arguments to attract tourists to camping Les Genets, but they can also take advantage of their stay to discover the other tourist treasures of the Vendée, like the island of Noirmoutier, only a few kilometres away from the campsite, or the famous city of les Sables d'Olonne, which hosts every four years the sailors of the Vendée Globe, a single-handed yacht race around the world.
A stay on camping Les Genets is also the opportunity to visit the Puy du Fou, the largest theme park in Western France, which shows the history of the Vendée and of France, attracting every year more than 1.5 million visitors...
