Hiking and cycling





Visits near the campsite, for the entire family and all likings !

The beaches of the Vendée, the vineyards of Brem, the state forest of Olonne sur Mer, the salt marshed filled with unspoiled fauna… they can all be discoverd by bike or on foot.

By bike

From the national forest to the Vendée coast road, between maritime pines and fine sand, La Vélodyssée invites itself on the cycle paths in the heart of the Fiefs Vendéens. 

We have the chance at Le Chaponnet to follow the Vélodyssée. Take the south exit and access the cycle paths directly: on the way north (turn right at the intersection) to reach the beach of Les Dunes, follow the wild coast of Brétignolles and drive to Saint Gilles Croix de Vie with its markets and its port and the departure of the magnificent Vendée coast road.

Head south: pass through the charming village of La Gachère, access to the Granges beach or cross the Olonne forest on the secure track before arriving in the Olonne marshes and finally Les Sables d’Olonne. For the most courageous, the Velodyssey follows the coast to Anglet in the Basque Country!

The map of the Vendée cycle paths  is available at the reception desk, as well as the map of the canton’s cycle paths (350km of paths).

The ‘Vendée Vélo’ mobile app offers 70 tracks of the cycling network in the Vendée, with detailed maps, useful information and tourist sites nearby.
