Camping California campsite is located in Saint-Jean-de-Monts in the Vendee region of France on the Cote de Lumiere.

Camping California

Camping California lies in the heart of 4 hectares of pine forest a short distance from the stunning Vendee coastline and offers visitors a family friendly and relaxing environment.

The campsite is located between St-Jean-De-Monts and Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie which is great for those who wish to get out and explore a little bit more about the region. There really are so many places to visit and things to see that you’ll be completely spoilt for choice.

One of the great things about Camping California is its exceptional swimming pool complex. Popular with families of all ages and abilities, the pool complex boasts impressive indoor and outdoor heated pools, a children’s pool and some water slides for fun.

Although the nearest beach to Camping California is around 4km away, when you get there you’ll be surprised by the sheer size and quality of the beach available. Stretching out for miles in either direction this wonderful sandy beach is large enough that you’ll easily be able to find your own bit of personal space where you can sunbathe, play on the sand, swim in the sea and build sandcastles.

The nearby town of St-Jean-de-Monts offers visitors everything you could possibly need whilst on holiday. There are a variety of shops, bars, restaurants and cafes to ensure that you can sit back and relax during the day or sample some of the fantastic French cuisine during the evening.
