Chateau la Foret


Chateau La Foret is a 4-star campsite set in the grounds of an incredible 18th century chateau in the heart of the Vendee, France. It’s been a family home for over 200 years and, three decades ago, it became a family business too – a holiday destination with a rare dose of historic French grandeur.


Where is Chateau La Foret located?

The 4-star campsite of Chateau La Foret is situated on the west coast of France in the Vendee region. Located in the pretty village of Saint Julien des Landes, Chateau La Foret is perfectly located for exploring all that the Vendee has to offer.


Why did you choose Chateau La Foret as the home of Votre Vacances?

We chose the 4-star campsite, Chateau La Foret for a number of reasons. As soon as we entered the village of Saint Julien des Landes, and turned in to the drive of Chateau La Foret we fell under its spell.

We love that the restaurant, bar and children’s play areas are all centrally located in the original stables and courtyard of the campsite – in French, known as the Coeur – or heart!


What facilities does Chateau La Foret have?

Chateau La Foret has a wealth of facilities suitable for every member of the family. The indoor swimming pool has slides, baby pool and large sunbathing area, whilst the outdoor pool is a tranquil area for adults.

Chateau La Foret is also home to the award winning Le Grand Defi outdoor adventure centre with zip wires that cross the fishing lakes, pony treks through the forest, paintballing, laser-tag and much more.

A holiday at Chateau La Foret is all about being outside enjoying nature, whether that’s out running through the woodland trails, feeding the animals at the farm, or simply sunbathing by the pool.


Is Chateau La Foret only suitable for young children, or will my teenage children enjoy a family holiday here too?

Chateau La Foret is perfect for children of all ages – from babies through to teenagers. The campsite has daily children’s clubs with English-speaking reps as well as indoor games room and soft-play area. The park is perfect for little children, whilst the mini-golf, trampolines, football fields, tennis courts and table-tennis areas are ideal for older children and teenagers.

Le Grand Defi has zip wire trails suitable for children from the age of 2, whilst teenagers (and adults) will enjoy the challenging and gravity defying hire wire trails.
