Just came across this funky site - Camping Indigo. Thinking of taking our own tent for a break in summer hols.

Has anybody been to Camping Indigo or to Le Noirmoitier?

all opinions welcome

I have borrowed 'Cool Camping France' from the libray (to drool over on these unpredictable June evenings)and the Indigo campsites got rave reviews.

Hold on...I'll have look...just checked the book and the one they really like is the one at Noirmoutier; " Fantastic pine-shaded site right on a quiet beach. You can't get a better located seaside site than this".

Looks fantastic. (Bugger, have just paid for our camping in the Vendee but this looks better).

Can I come with you please grin

Thank you. Cool Camping France - I have the English one but didn't realise there was Frence one out - mental note to dash to the bookshop in the morning!!

Sounds good anyway - might do a week there and then a week further down on the Vendee. If you are a good cook you are welcome to come with us!! I always promise myself a holiday from cooking but it never seems to happen - unless standard barbeque of course - husband does that!!

oldlady40, the book is great and well worth getting (or borrowing) it's got some fantastic sites in the Vendee (and elsewhere).

Will just complete my Cordon Bleu 'Camping Cookery' course and be with you....wink

I visited the island of Noirmoutier back in the '70s on my french exchange trip - it is a nice island and I have very fond memories of the waffles with cream that we bought at a hut on the beach.

We went back a couple of years ago and found some delicious and wickedly tempting cakes in the town centre patisseries, as well as some other lovely shops.

There's also a water park that seems to be widely advertised in that area and down to the Vendee - we didn't go, so can't tell you much more.

I can't help on the camping issue either, but had to answer because of my childhood memories. I hope you have a lovely time there.

I bought the book this morning and have booked the campsite - can't wait. thanks for all posts/information. We really just want a family holiday - not brits abroad type of place - where we can cycle - so this seems to fit the bill. thanks again
