A beautifully maintained campsite at which we stayed 14 nights in May 2012. My son & his wife also stayed 7 nights in June 2012. We all agreed we would go back. The owner and staff could not do enough for their visitors. We met others who visit regularly.

The owners of this site are very friendly,helpful and speak fluent english. While it is a small site it is well maintained with the pool very special as well as the large portions of food on offer. Beaches, walks, bike rides, touring areas by car or campervan etc fantastic. We love the area and enjoy spending time there.

This is a lovely campsite very well run by the site owners. There was just one place on arrival. The reception closed when we arrived during lunchtime but the owner came out to us and guided us to the only remaining pitch and told us to come back later to register. The pitch was spacious and level. Electricity and water at pitch. Toilets and showers are very well maintained. There is great cycling and walking routes nearby and a beautiful beach. The WiFi was not free but very reasonable. I would highly recommend this campsite.

There was a very warm welcome for us even though we turned up during lunch time. We were given a choice of pitches, and although it’s a bit tight for larger vehicles, once set up, we really happy with the location and facilities on site. The toilet and shower facilities are first class, very clean and plenty of hot water. There are plenty of walks and cycle paths nearby and the beach and town are a short walk away. There is a small shop selling basics (the bread is excellent and better and cheaper than the boulangerie in town) and there also do takeaways. RVW

Stayed on this wonderful family run site for a week en route back to the UK .
I had stayed at La Foret 20 years ago when my children were very young and I wanted to spend some time there again, it turned out to be an excellent choice. Fabulous, helpful staff, great moules/ frites fresh bread every morning and a pizza van once a week outside the site :-)
The swimming pool was immaculately kept being a perfect temperature at all times,
It was a short walk to an unspoilt beach through the pine forest, plenty of cycle rides and within close proximity to Notre Dame de Monts.

This has to be one of the best ACSI sites we have stayed in - we felt completely at home within an hour of arriving. The owners have to be the most friendly and helpful that we have come across and the site reflects the hard work that they and their staff put in. The facilities are kept extremely clean and the whole campsite feels well run. There is plentiful hot water for showers, basins and washing up. Wifi is sensibly priced and perfectly good. The take away food was very good. Notre Dame is about a kilometre away and the main beach a little less however there is also a sandy beach a short walk through the forest. The campsite is well suited to those with bikes with a very good cycle track just over the road from the entrance and an extensive network of cycle routes. This is a site we will certainly visit again.

What a gem, small but perfectly suited to our taste. The small team at la foret are brilliant. The campsite is well maintained and toilet and shower facilities are first class. Cycle route opposite the entrance and a path through the wood takes you to the beach, we loved our stay and wouldn’t hesitate in returning. Thanks

Site is on beautiful coast, slept on beach, only sea could be heard, perfect. Cycle paths to your hearts content, on beach, through forest, on prom. Family run, owners could not be more helpful and welcoming. Would definitely come here again. Weather was glorious.
