A château setting and superb French cuisine

This small, tranquil parc doesn’t just have a friendly atmosphere; it’s friendly to the environment too and has won a host of awards for its green behaviour.

On parc at Château La Forêt you’ll enjoy modern facilities alongside an authentic French atmosphere, with the lovely old village of Saint-Julien-des-Landes nearby. Spend the afternoon relaxing on your shaded pitch, try a spot of tennis or have a go windsurfing or dinghy sailing on the lake nearby. The parc is home to an incredible treetop adventure course, which is guaranteed to keep the kids occupied for hours. Occasional evening entertainment is provided by the animation team throughout July and August, and there is a French restaurant and takeaway on parc too.

Absolutely loved the park. Real French feeling, not very commercial and the kids had so much freedom. The little town was beautiful. Didnt eat in the reataurant as we had bbq every night. Bar and entertainment was great. Didnt want to come home
Only downside was the weather, we did have a lot of rain. Would definitley go back and have already recommended it to others.

We really love this park - this was our second visit. It's not too big so you can let the kids roam free. The staff in the park (eurocamp and the rest) are all very warm and welcome. There's two pools (one covered) and they added a second waterslide which is a lot of fun. The courtyard is really nice for coffee or drinks, and the kids are close by in the gaming room or on the bouncy castle. There's a takeaway on site.

We stayed in a safari tent which we love. There's only 4, in a quiet corner of the park. They are spacious, clean and very comfortable. We prefer the tent over the mobile homes. The toilet block close-by is clean and quiet.

There's a great airel/zipline park beside the camp ground (le grand defi) which is absolutely brilliant (they do paintballing, pony rides too).

The only hesitation I have with the park is that the restaurant has a very limited menu. We love it here.

Friendly and laid back. Very relaxing. Not the parc for a hectic night life. Staff very friendly and helpful. This was our fourth time staying there and we go back again.

We had a great holiday here. We were looking for a place where our children (13 & 10) would be happy in the pool and we could just sit, read and relax. The Eurocamp staff, Jim, Bod and Dee were all lovely -
a credit to Eurocamp. We saw them regularly out and about and they made us feel very welcome. The owner of the campsite was also very friendly, very proud of his campsite - as he should be. The campsite is tidy and peaceful. The bouncy castles for the children were very well used as was the games room. The entertainment was great too, for both children and adults. If you like the outdoors, you must look into Le Grand Defi, it's part of the campsite and it's a brilliant treetop and zip wire adventure - highly recommended. The bar staff speak really good English but they enjoy letting you try your French too. And Dee, who is Dutch, speaks brilliant English! There were children of all ages when we visited but for my boys, it was just right. There is a beautiful beach nearby at Bretignolles sur Mer and L'Eclerc and Carrefour supermarkets & fuel 30 mins away in La Roche sur Yon. Also a local bakers and shop just a few mins walk from the campsite. Basically, a great peaceful holiday where the kids can have fun in the pool, play football and explore the grounds - there's also a trampoline, minigolf, some animals you can feed, a playpark and lots of music and karaoke. Meanwhile, parents can relax, enjoy the sun and soak up the beautiful environment. We will definitely return.

Third time back to this site and it was as good as the previous visits. The only reason it didn't get a higher rating was because the outdoor pool was not open until July.
