Camping Pitches at Noirmoutier campsite
Noirmoutier campsite has three types of pitches:
Comfort Pitch - this is among the pine trees and sand dunes. Includes electricity. Beachfront Pitch - with views of the ocean and next to the Sableaux beach. Comfort Beachfront Pitch - As the Beachfront Pitch but with Electricity.
All pitches are 80 m2 and are for up to six people.
Hire a luxury tent
If taking your tent or caravan all that way doesn't appeal, then another option is to hire a tent. They have a number of classic safari-style tents to hire.
Being right next to the beach, there are a number of activities near the campsite, such as canoeing and sailing. You can hire bikes to explore the area too. If you are not a fan of pedalling, they have electric bikes too. There are children activities and a kids club (high season) at the campsite, as well as yoga on the beach, to help you relax into your holiday. In the evening, you can enjoy the entertainment, or simply relax by your tent taking in the ocean air.
GOWTK Club Member Anna takes her kids to the French Coast for a stay at Noirmoutier.
I stayed at Camping Noirmoutier, France with my children (5 and 7) and some of our extended family.
The island was an excellent holiday resort with plenty to do
Noirmoutier is a semi-island off the west coast of France. The island was an excellent holiday resort with plenty to do. We stayed there for just over a week, although we could easily have entertained ourselves for two weeks.
The campsite itself is located on the beach and some of the pitches have gorgeous seaside views. Our pitch was however very shaded as we were pitched further back in the trees. So if your after a sunny spot with a view, I highly recommend you request the seaside pitches. Also, when we went which was August 2015 (peak season), it was a very cramped campsite with little room.
That being said the beach was a lovely sand beach, with a local fisherman coming every day to check his nets, there were rocks for crabbing, gorgeous sand for castle building, seaweed for making face pictures and shells for collecting (oh yes and lovely shallow, calm sea for the kids to swim in).
The campsite also had a restaurant or two (we thoroughly enjoyed the pizzas and Belgian waffles), a shop, boules pitches and an excellent play park. The park also had activities for the children almost every day including crafts, baking, outdoor movie and horse riding. Most of these were free, but some like the horse riding needed buying but even that was reasonably priced. The campsite hired out bikes and kayaks and there was plenty to do offsite too.
The toilet and shower facilities may take some people a bit of getting used to as they were unisex, but it didn't bother us and was regularly cleaned. There was one traditional hole in the ground... I mean traditional French toilet, but then they had plenty of toilets we Brits are more accustomed too.
we had a brilliant time there and I would recommend it
All in all, I'd say this campsite is a great spot for a family location, although it would be better if the pitches were more spacious. But we had a brilliant time there and I would recommend it.Photo Credits: Anna
