Hi, I'm looking for recommendations for next summer. We have our own tent and do a western crossing on the ferry. I'm looking for a medium sized site with a pool and a restaurant/ takeaway and a little play park for dc's who will be 1.7 & 4.4 by then. I quite like sites without too many Brits, wink in either Brittany or vendee - any suggestions?
Thank you- that seems like a lot of requirements when I see it written down!

Les deux fountaines

We stayed at Les Druides at Carnac this summer - best campsite I've ever stayed at. It meets most of your requirements - has lovely pool, indoor play room, outdoor playgrounds (several), and not too many Brits when we were there. Our two children made friends with a Dutch couple (of grandparent age!). Site was really friendly, and not too big.
Bread and pastries available from reception to order, but it doesn't have a takeaway - but there is a good restaurant just off the site, which we had takeaway frites from - you have to take your own bowl to collect them in. They were awesome!
Beautiful, safe, sandy beaches with rockpooling close by.
We will be going back.

les deux fontaines is lovely...nice walk through fields to the beach, but there are lots of brits.

carnac area is great and weather slightly better than northern brittany...been to this area about 4 times, though to a house and bigger sites that have brits

northern vendee we didn't like, though la garangeiore brilliant site, again has brits....they get everywhere, a bit like ants!!

We went to a flower camping campsite and it was most definitely few brits and very clean/ lovely.

We stayed at Du Letty this year near Benodet..was lovely. A large site but had loads of facilities and right on the beach..fab!

Camping les Dunes at Bretignolles was great for us. They have an indoor and outdoor pool, with slides in the indoor pool as well. Quite small and mainly French/Dutch. We stayed in a static home with Matthews Holidays who have a few vans there but our kids made friends with some in their own caravans and tents. It is right on the dunes so literally 2 minutes to the beach.
