I've been to that area, and past that site, although not on to it. It's much like the many others there - fairly large and flat, and close to the beach, with a big pool . I bet you'll have a wicked time in season - certainly you will if you like the party life! The Vendee is the mattress of Europe.

Hire a Rosalie when you get there - they're so much fun!   

Best wishes


Studley

I worked in st jean a few yrs ago and my mate worked on Acapulco,so spent some time there.It's a nice site,close to the beach and within walkin distance of the oxford (many nite spent dancin on tables) and pintpot(great kareoke), the local courier hangouts!
The site its self isnt overly big,the bar is smallish and you'll prob get invovled in the entertainment(quiz nitghts,bingo etc).Nice pool area,although someone nearly drowned when i was there,but im sure that was a one off!!

You'll have a wicked time !

Yeah Plank/Hank! (AKA Matthew!) He's class!! A really nice guy! He's a big cheery welsh boy, got on great with him last yr. I told him yday that I spoke to someone on here that was goin to Acapulco and he got all excited! He's very relaxed and has this is his 6th season or something now so he knows what he's doin. You'll get on great with him! Everyone does! Tell him Kim says hi!!

Heres a copy/paste of what I said to someone before
Oxford is best place to be on June 25th.

Mels Bar does the 5 shot challege... beat the fastest and the slowest (*ahem*you'd have to try- thats my record!).
New Jacks is a great small place to go for the end of day drink.
Pint Pot is great and have random happy hours and cocos is *the*[only] night club near the campsites (but pricy for drinks!)

LE PROSPER CLUB in st jean is good (i'm sure its a gay bar tho...)
Mels bar (LE MELANIE) was also good for watching footie and the free taxi home!

DISCOTHEQUE ET PUB in SAINT-HILAIRE-DE-RIEZ is the best! Do Not Miss!!

and avoid using ambulences....

The rum bar in St jeans is heaven and the cocktails are worth it!
Look out for the free cinema on the beach & music in the square nights.

GoKarting is great fun!
PIZZERIA LE COLISEUM is a great cheap but nice place for a meal.
Grand Parc Peu De Feu must not be missed! Its a long way but worth it!

Jean-Luc runs the (basicaly) only taxi service- do not p*** him off! and if poss speak french!

Beachs are great!!



And say hi to Simon in the Tavern in St Gilles for me!

jean luc bared me from his cab, and threatened me with the fire extinguisher, all i did was get in his boot with me drink as there was no room in his motor and about 50 couriers in line waiting to go home, he kinda has the monopoly on courier taxis in the vendee

but he did once drive to genets to give someone back their mobile which they left in there... he'll always pull over to let you get money and hes rarely late... and if you're nice he wont over charge!
