Les Genets, a 5-star campsite in the Vendée
In Saint Jean de Monts lies one of the most beautiful campsites of Vendée. Rated 5 star and a member of the Sun Marina group, Les Genets offers tourists the ideal conditions for a successful stay on the Côte de Lumière…
A campsite 800 metres from the sea
Situated only 800 metres from the beach of Saint Jean de Monts, the famous seaside resort of the Vendée coast, the town centre of which is 6 kilometres from here, Les Genets extends over 7 hectares of a pleasantly flowered and carefully maintained pine forest. This exceptional campsite features 385 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.
Ultra-modern, the timber Cabadiennes provide out-of-the-ordinary accommodation which is comfortable, peaceful and warm. These have been laid out to form a private island, where holidaymakers can make the most of shared facilities including barbecues and picnic tables. The Far West Lodges enable you to combine the delights of camping and the countryside with the charm and comfort of a holiday rental. They have a surface area of 23 m². These can accommodate between 4 to 5 people, having 2 bedrooms and a large terrace of 11 m².
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.
An entirely new aquatic area for 2019!
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.
In 2019, the aquatic area of Les Genets has expanded with a completely new indoor 1,500 m² area housing pools and 2 water slides, both of 9 metres in height, the entirety enjoying a decor which is exceedingly surprising.
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, a leading beach resort of the Vendée Coast
The situation of the Les Genets campsite 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...
