25/07/2012 Campsite Domaine de Beaulieu was a huge disappointment and really quite shabby and very tired. God forbid you are not wearing 70's style speedos since for some unexplianed reason nromal swimming trunks are banned. It is fine for them to impose there pathetic rules but at the same time the lifegaurds were regularly late to take up their positions.Would have been liveable had the weather been better but when the sun is not shinning it really is a very depressing place to be. We left after 4 days although we had paid for 14. Simply had to get out and find something more decent.

14/11/2011 This campsite is easily the poorest in the area. . It is dated, boring and thoroughly uninspiring. There is very little effort to spruce it up it is all too obvious when you drive in. Luckily there are a host of campsites in this region of the vendee so you will have loads of choice besides this anonymous little dive. The staff particularly Mr grumpy who manages the place for the chatodel chain they are fixated with being unhelpful, awkward and unfriendly.. "direct camping" deserve a mention they offer fantastic value but they really should do an appraisal of their involvement with this campsite!. The bar is awful, the snack bar is terrible, the tennis court is full of cracks and is far too expensive 16 euro for 2 hours! the swimming pool is open too late and closes far too early 7.30pm. So when you arrive back from your day out you can't go for a swim... brilliant!! Just avoid domaine de beaulieu it is tenth rate especially compared to the other excellent campsites nearby.

24/10/2011 Domaine de beaulieu is a French equivalent to a campsite from "father ted". the reviews expressed are fairly accurate. It is no where near as good as the other campsites in the area. It is unkempt, boring, substandard. Definitely a stretch to describe it as 4 star .. no way... the campsite is only saved because of its location it is near the pretty town of st gilles which has a great beach and many lovely cycle paths in the area.. my advice is if you are planning to hang around a campsite a lot during your holiday give Domaine de beauleiu a skip. I have stayed in loads in the vendee and this is the worst by some distance.

06/02/2012 We have visited this site 3 times in the last 7 years. First we stayed with Direct camping.This was a static and it was clean ,tidy and the kids really enjoyed it.
Two years later we returned with our own caravan and had a pitch.
The size of the pitch was perfect.
We were there last year as well and we had another great holiday.In fact the family we met 2 years ago we met last year and now we are all planning to go again. I agree the campsite could do with an update but we have found it friendly , clean and tidy. Now that are children are getting older they interact with all the other nationalities that are there which is great. Our son played football / table tennis and mini golf with the site organizing it. Perfect for a nice break for us.We have booked the site with vacances soliel with the last 5 years in the vendee and i feel this is one of the better sites .

12/09/2011 Read the reviews on here before we went and was really worried about the holiday. However, on the first day we arrived my worries were no more.
Booking in was fine and they showed us to our pitch. They leant us a extension cable free of charge as ours was not long enough for the electric hook up. The pitch was quite large to accomodate our large trailer tent.
Our son made friends straight away. He had lots of fun at the arranged tournaments eg football, mini golf.
The toilets and showers were fine and kept clean.
We did not get bored at all. We found the staff nice and friendly especially the English lady on reception. Just like to thank all at the campsite for a lovely holiday and we hope to return next year.
This was our 3rd year camping in the region and compared with the company which we previously used this one is so much better.

09/01/2012 Surprised at some of the negative comments on here. Yes it is quiet, and yes it does not have the most modern of facilities, take-away and restaurant are not great, and the bar is on the smallish side.

BUT, it is friendly, it is clean, it is great for the kids - not too big for them too get lost. We all had bikes and a fantastic beach is 15 minutes ride away on a cycle path. The town is 25 mins on a cycle path.
Kids loved it - we will definitely return.

I know that the more expensive campsites offer more but we were not looking for a Butlins style entertainment site. I know that the weather towards the end of our stay and after we left was pretty dismal, but couldn't blame that on the site.

05/12/2011 Domaine de beauleiu . Is the worst 4star campsite in the area. We were unfortunate to end up here as we were told that there is not much of a muchness in the french campsites. Well that is simply not true. This campsite is terrible. it is dreary, it has no life, boring, substandard facilities I could go on and on. The swimming pool opens way to late 10am and closes at 7pm so no very early swims or late ones.
The guy that manages the place is so rude a real jobs worth, who seems to take great delight thwarting folks fun. I am laughing thinking of him now.. a kind of french basil fawlty.. The bar is like a time machine that brings you back to the 70's. The snack bar is dreadful no choice and bad food .
There is a plethora of campsites sites particularly in st john de monts
that put this (2 star, for that is all Domaine de beaulieu is, It is definitely not 4 star as advertised ) Any of them are better than domaine de beaulieu. Don't get caught out staying here. good luck.

03/09/2011 I wish I had of read the bad reviews they are spot on. This campsite is dreary, dated, boring and is the worst by far of the campsites, and we have stayed in a lot in France. the guy in charge is a total grump other staff are unhelpful. these are the stereotypical French who give the french a bad name ... Avoid this place like the plague there are a million better choices than this place nearby

03/07/2011 stayed in this campsite in June 2011. It is the incredibly boring. The owners are completely apathetic, indifferent and unfriendly.. well they were to us anyway.. The pool is open to late and it shuts too early. The snack bar is a joke, and the bar is awful. the toilet block is dated, and not very clean. The grounds are scrubby and unkempt. How this campsite got 4 stars is a mystery. There are loads and loads of better options than this dreadful place. Domaine de Beaulieu is a big disappointment
