Chateau la Foret
Château la Forêt is a 4-star campsite set in the grounds of an incredible 18th century chateau in the heart of the Vendee. It’s been a family home for 200 years and, three decades ago, it became a family business too – a holiday destination with a rare dose of historic French grandeur.
The courtyard buildings that once housed the stables, farmhouse, barn and kennels have been converted – with their original charm intact – to host a restaurant and pizzeria, a bar, takeaway, mini-market, games room and wellness centre.
If you would like to do more than just relax, there’s an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a fishing lake and a tennis court. And if you’re feeling adventurous, the grounds also host Le Grand Defi forest adventure park, with zip wire and assault courses, paintballing and pony trekking.
