Having spent several wonderful holidays at the 4* Camping Amiaux I (Editor) and my family can vouch for the fact that this is one of the best campsites we have ever stayed in.

The Côte de Lumière, or Coast of Light, is the perfect place for anyone looking to relax at the beach and soak up some sun! Camping les Amiaux is ideally situated between the beach and the forest, with lots to do both on-site and in the nearby area.

There are plenty of activities to suit everyone, including water sports, cycling and archery. Not to mention the heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools. The outdoor pool has four fantastic water slides for the kids to enjoy. With a nearby theme park Puy du Fou and safari park Planète Sauvage, there are plenty of opportunities for great family days out.

Camping les Amiaux is situated in an extensive park of 16 hectares, just 700 metres from a beach of fine sand and on the edge of woods. What more ideal setting could there be for a camping holiday? The entertainment team there know how to keep your whole family happy: they organise disco nights, karaoke evenings and shows. Children are, of course, not left out: there’s a mini-club just for them.

But the best thing of all at Camping Les Amiaux is the swimming: there’s a covered pool with jacuzzi and an outdoors pool with five exciting slides. Sun worshippers are at the right campsite here, too: there’s plenty of loungers around the pool.

The versatile restaurant at Camping Les Amiaux has something to suit every palate: you can order pizza or frites, or of course indulge in the justly famed traditional French cuisine. Takeaways are also available.

A must-visit destination during your trip at Camping Amiaux is Ile d’Yeu where you can take in the sights of the Great Lighthouse and Old Castle. You can go horse riding, sand yachting and even skydiving during your visit!
