French Holiday Breaks


Please add a comment to our guestbook

  1. We had a wonderful time with our two young daughters at Les Amiaux. We booked E18 for two weeks following our wedding and couldn't have asked for a better holiday. It was our first time taking our daughters abroad and they loved every minuet. The accommodation was spacious and clean and had all that we required in terms of facilities. There was a great outside space (a real sun trap) with a gas bbq which we used extensively. E18 is located at the end of a cul de sac so perfect for young children the plot feels very private. The campsite is excellent with its own bar/restaurant, shop, cycle shop, tennis courts plus the pools. There is a great splash park for little ones with an outside pool next to it. A short walk away there is a larger indoor pool which also has a baby pool and an outside pool with 4 slides- great fun! Our host Sharon was waiting for us on arrival and all communication prior to arrival was clear and concise. Sharon was always available to answer any queries during our stay. We enjoyed our first family holiday to France so much we have already booked again for next year. There can't be any better endorsement than that! Thanks Sharon, we look forward to seeing you next year. Pete, Rachel, Eira & Elin.

  2. Had a fabulous time. The mobile home was lovely and clean on arrival and catered quite nicely for our family of 6. It was right outside a large green area with a sandpit and was completely safe for my 1&3 year old to play outside. We only stayed a few days. My children wished we had stayed longer, they had such a great time.
    Thank you so much for accommodating us at such short notice.
    Wendi & Family

  3. We had a wonderful time at Les Amiaux this year, yet again! It was our 5th year in a row, and we have watched our children grow up so much during that time. To them, this place is known as "France", and I am so pleased we found this site and such gracious hosts in Sharon and Kris. Not sure what our plans are for next year yet, but it's a safe bet that if we do return it will be to Les Amiaux with Sharon to look after us. With love and best wishes, from the Kings x

  4. Many thanks for a troublefree stay at 2 of your mobile homes on site at Les Amiaux. Both homes are well equipped, clean and ideal for a family to enjoy a superb holiday in the Vendee sunshine.

    Les Amiaux is a fabulous site and very child friendly and safe, the pool with the slides was our 2's favourite and our 15 year old son who said the holiday would be " boring " actually enjoyed himself ( and with no Xbox)!!

    You do a fantastic job Sharon and I am already recommending friends and family to look at this website.

    We will definitely be back and hopefully in E18 which is a fantastic pitch for all you sun worshippers!!

  5. Hi Sharon,
    We were really sorry to hear the sad news about Kris. You did an outstanding job on your own and managed and coped so well. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning next summer for our third year in a row with you.

    wishing you all the very best,

    Andy, Adriaun and Elise.

  7. Excellent Hoilday
    Just arrived back from a 10 day stay at Les Amiaux, the accommodation was clean, spacious and homley and suited all our family needs.
    The two swimming pools (1x indoor & 1x outdoor) as well as a seperate waterslide area were fantastic for our 3x boys something for all our different age ranges and
    with the clean and kid freindly beach just a short stroll from the site through a wooded park, was ideally place to explore the local area.
    There is a lot to do and see in the St Jean-de-Mont area and beyond and this site is wonderfully situated.
    Sharon & Kris made the Les Amiaux a very freindly and relaxing enjoyable hoilday for our family.
    15-26 August 2016

  8. We stayed for our 4th year, for a weeks holiday in August. Yet another fantastic holiday with great weather. Lovely mobile home and lovely to see Kris and Sharon again. There really is everything you need on the park and I have no complaints whatsoever. Cannot imagine going anywhere else in France! Thanks again. x

  9. We had a wonderful week in Les Amiaux at the beginning of August and have rebooked for next year. The campsite is great for famlies, there are swimming pools to cater for all ages, the site is safe for children to cycle around on their own and very clean. We stayed in M55 which was a lovely caravan on a very spacious plot. Sharon and Kris were very helpful and any issues were rectified immediately. The beach is only a cycle ride away (which we did with a 5 year old) and well worth a visit. Looking forward to next year!

  10. We had a good week in August. The children enjoyed the pools, slides, table tennis and tennis. Food was good in the restuarant and enjoyed time in the bar. The cycle tracks where very good and hired bikes from Chris and Sharon which the children particulalry enjoyed. You could walk to the great sandy beach or we sometimes took the car to beach nearer the town as boys liked playing cricket and didn't want to carry the wickets!
    Great having a gas BBQ for tea when finished in the pool. Everything you need in the home was provided. If you decide to go into town in the evening book a taxi in advance as we couldn't get one home and its a long walk!
    A good week away with everytihng you needed provided.

  11. We had a lovely two weeks at Les Amiaux, filled with pool, moules and boules. Great, private homes, a well-run site with a decent bar and restaurant, nice beach nearby and a great cycle-track to the nearby towns. The pools and slides kept the children entertained and we all had a good barbeque on our site so we could host each other from time to time rather than always eating out. Thanks so much to Kris and Sharon who were always there with friendly advice and help if needed. Highly recommended.

  12. Just back from 2 great weeks at Les Amiaux. Our first time on this type of holiday and we weren't disappointed. The campsite was great - very safe and clean with very spacious pitches. Our daughter had a ball going around on her bicycle. Swimming pools were great and fantastic slides which were a real highlight. Our hosts Kris and Sharon could not have been more helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend French holiday breaks. Will definitely be back.

  13. We had 2 wonderful weeks at Les Amiaux. The caravan were spotlessly clean on arrival and we had a very warm welcome from Kris and Sharon. Anytime we asked for anything like gas or an emergency cork screw as ours broke mid opening the wine! they were always quick to help us. This was our 2nd visit to the campsite as our 2 kids aged 10 and 12 love the outdoor pool with slides and the freedom to ride their bikes around the site as it is so safe. The beach is only across the road which is great too. We went on our bikes to Notre Dame de Monts but you can park right next to the beach. The bistro on the beach serves lovely food but you need to go between 12-2 as the do stop serving till the evening. There are 2 big supermarkets and Lidl so no need to bring anything from home. I would also recommend La Suite Bistro in San Jean de Monts by the evening market place very nice book and not badly priced but go early as it gets very busy!! We'll be back again as we loved the site and we loved the caravans I can't recommend enough for a relaxing family holiday. Thank you Kris and Sharon

  14. We have returned from another wonderful holiday at Les Amiaux (3rd year) and are rebooking for next year. We stayed, as two families, in the mobile homes which are in a lovely secluded spot together, with plenty of space.
    Our teenage childre met so many friends, that they didn't want to leave! The weather was amazing. This park is ideal as is friendly, welcoming and perfect for families.
    As always, Kris and Sharon were so helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them. It is nice to know they are there if you need anything.
    See you next year!

  15. Just returned from another two weeks at Les Amiaux. We had a wonderful time again (our 3rd year on the trot), and after going through the usual debate of "we really should try somewhere else next year", we realised - why? The site and the local area has everything you could wish for with a family, so we promptly booked again for 2016!

    Kris and Sharon were great hosts as always, with the whole experience from booking through to departure easy and well-managed.

    See you next year!

  16. Just back from a very enjoyable 12 days at Les Amiaux. Campsite facilities very good. It was very safe for children & quiet at night. Loved the mobile we rented from Kris & Sharon. It was clean, very well equipped & had a lovely barbeque area. Kris & Sharon were most helpful with any queries we had & we hope to return in the future.

  17. We have had a fantastic time in this marvellous campsite. It is an ideal place for a family due to its facilities and proximity to Saint Jean De Monts which is a gorgeous seaside resort with its sandy beaches and first class restaurants and shops.
    I cannot speak highly enough of our wonderful hosts, Sharon and Kris who must be the most approachable and helpful people in this business, we cannot wait to get back next summer!

  19. We had such a good time last year that we returned this year for another two week stay at Les Amiaux, with Sharon and Kris as our hosts. The site itself is easily the best in the area - very spacious, with excellent facilities. Further up the road the sites are quite close together, with cramped pitches, but Les Amiaux feels like a wooded/field area first, with caravans and tents added, rather than the other way around.

    The town and surrounding area are superb, with plenty to do for all ages, and as the kids get older we will be able to explore further - I doubt we'd ever get tired of it. It is a manageable drive from Cherbourg/Le Havre, and although the weather was a bit iffy this year (blame the Americans for sending us Bertha!), we had enough sun to look like we'd been away, and felt like we'd had a proper holiday.

    As with last year, we looked at other companies (Vacansoleil etc), but the prices are far higher, and as we said, "we wouldn't get Sharon and Kris" - because it is vital not to underestimate how important having help on hand is. We had free bike loan, a vet appointment booked for us, 2 gas bottles changed within 15 minutes of reporting them, and a lot of advice that made a big difference to our stay. They really do know how to look after their guests!

    Within a few days of getting back we had arranged the same two weeks for next year, and if you can get in, we advise you to book up quickly!

    Thanks again, see you next year!

  20. We visited Les Amiaux for two weeks for the first time last year. Sharon and Kris were our hosts. They are extremely helpful, approachable and friendly. We enjoyed it so much there that we returned again this year from 10th until 24th August 2014. The site is situated in a beautiful part of the Vandee. Both times, our homes were perfectly clean and tidy. The site is great for children and adults and feels very safe with security staff visable at night.
    We will definately return and when we do, will be contacting Sharon / Kris as they are so trustworthy and honest. Everyone is so friendly, including the staff in the bar and the on site shop. We would highly recommend.

    (Posted on 2014-09-03 08:59:00 by Paul Nash)
  21. We stayed on the site for two weeks and had a great time. Sahron and Kris are a very lovely couple that made us feel very welcomed. The site itself it's a great place for a family holiday. Clean and safe. We would definitely recommend it :)

    (Posted on 2014-09-01 21:10:00 by Anna Stoltman)
  22. Just back from a wonderful two weeks at Les Amiaux, our second time there. Our caravan was excellent, very clean, with all we needed including a couple of bikes and gas BBQ! Perfect. Sharon and Kris were perfect hosts, on hand at all times. Highly recommended.

    (Posted on 2014-08-30 09:01:00 by Derek & Jacqui Walker)
  23. Only on a short 3 night break with the Grandchildren.
    The park is lovely and safe, friendly and clean.
    Sharon + Kris told us all we needed to know, about the park and local area.
    The homes were spotless and in great condition.
    Thoroughly recommend, and the Grandkids already want to go back.

  24. Met Sharon and Kris in 2013 while staying in a private caravan they managed. This year we stayed in one of their own caravans. Been to St Jeans for many years now on various sites but the caravan and plot we had this year was by far the best. We were well looked after and look forward to booking foe next year.

  25. We are back from a second wonderful holiday, courtesy of French Holiday Breaks at Les Amiaux. Sharon and Kris could not have done more for us and our friends. They are always there with whatever you may need, going that extra mile, nothing is too much trouble and will go out of their way to help make your stay enjoyable as do all of the staff on site. Fantastic facilities and area, my children (aged 12 and 15) love it! I would highly recommend booking with them, we have and are looking forward to another visit next year!
    Their dog Bertie is a particular favourite of my son, so they get quite a few visits from him and are always warm and welcoming!

    (Posted on 2014-08-21 15:12:00 by Adele Browne)
  26. Have just returned from our second visit to Kris and Sharon at Les Amiaux. We stayed in one of the 'B' area caravans last time around and this time opted for the slightly newer caravans in the 'M' area. Really nice layout ith plenty of room in both of the bedrooms (friends of ours easily managed to fit their cot into the bedroom too...bonus!) all equipment and accessories are first class and Kris and Sharon were excellent hosts!
    Whilst the weather wasn't fab this time around it really didn't matter as the kids quickly make friends on the park and entertain themselves for hours on end leaving us to enjoy our holiday too! Les Amiaux really is a great family park, all staff are extremely helpful and friendly and there is a beautiful and quiet beach within walking distance. Both Notre Dame and St Jean are a few minutes drive away and certainly in summer there is always something entertaining going on in the evenings......if you are unsure which site to choose for your holiday stay here with French holiday Breaks you wont regret it!

    (Posted on 2014-08-21 07:21:00 by Neil Farmery)
  27. Just returned from a fantastic family break at Les Amiaux. Kris and Sharon could not have been more welcoming, or helpful. We stayed in E46, a three-bedroomed caravan. The caravan was quite old, but perfectly practical and functional, and in a very good condition. It was also very clean upon our arrival. The outstanding plot more than made up for the maturity of the van. The plot was spacious, surrounded by a hedge for privacy, and shaded by a mature tree. It was also tucked away in the back corner of the site, with an open, grassed playing area and sand pit to the front of it. The children, (9,7 and 5) enjoyed the freedom of the site, (which felt very safe, and had a positive family feel to it), particularly pottering around on their scooters. The swimming pools and water slides were also a real highlight for the children. The location of the site is good. It is situated far enough away from the hustle and bustle of a resort centre, but is within a five minute drive of excellent beaches, towns, and supermarkets. We wouldn't hesitate to return. Well done French Holiday Breaks!

  28. loveley family site with accommadation of a very high standard. Sharon and Kris were helpful and friendly, with a professional approach offering good advice where and when required.

  29. We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in The Vendee. The campsite (Les Aimaux) was perfect and had a lovely friendly atmosphere. The mobile home was well equipped and very comfortable. Kris and Sharon were excellent hosts and were on hand to answer any queries, not that we had many! The area was beautiful and we had some lovely bike rides on the very safe cycle paths - stopping at various places en route for an ice-cream or two! We would definitely recommend French Holiday Breaks and shall be returning to this little piece of heaven again.

  30. We recently stayed at Camping Les Amiaux(M 54) and we would highly recommend it to any of our friends who are going to the Vendee in the future.Kris and Sharon go out of their way to make their guest feel welcome.The mobile home itself was by far the best equipped we have stayed in and the large gazebo out side offers great privacy and shade.We can't wait to return.

    (Posted on 2014-08-05 09:38:00 by Cormac and Myra Dublin)
  31. It is easy to see why the people I met at Les Amiaux keep coming back. The region has fantastic beaches, reached by a short walk through beautiful pine forests, criss-crossed with trails and superb cycle paths. The caravan was clean and well equipped, with both sun, shade and privacy avialable. Kris and Sharon were excellent hosts, ready to help at any time, and more than happy to share their extensive local knowledge. I look forward to my next visit.

    (Posted on 2014-07-13 11:12:00 by Adrian D.)
  32. We stayed in july 2013 and had a fabulous holiday, Sharon and Kris could not do enough to ensure we had a trouble free stay. The site was a described and all facilites were clean and in working order. I would have no hesitation in recomending French Holiday Breaks to any one wanting a family or couple holiday in a lovely part of France. The nearby beach was first class and there is loads to do locally if you want to venture off site.

    (Posted on 2014-01-23 16:26:00 by Ian, Lynda and Jordan)
  33. Sharon and Kris were the perfect hosts and our stay could not have been any better. Our holiday home was modern, extremely clean and well appointed for the sun throughout the day be it for a morning coffee or for a glass of wine after a day out and about. We had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our stay with much more comfort than I have experienced in other holiday homes, even the kitchen was large enough and well equipped for me to indulge in one of my passions – cooking. Not that there are not plenty of good places to go and eat out too . Everyone on site was welcoming and friendly, the nearby beaches were beautiful and unexpectedly quiet for a sunny September, and there were enchanting places to visit without having to go too far. We loved it so much we extended our stay and would very much love to go back again – very soon. Thank you for a fantastic holiday!

    (Posted on 2013-10-09 15:55:00 by Linda and Robin)
  34. We had a wonderful 2 week holiday! The caravan (B05) was well equiped, comfortable and clean. We couldn't have asked for nicer hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they were always on hand if needed. We plan to return!

    (Posted on 2013-09-08 13:28:00 by Bev & Paul Winstone)
  35. Had a great week at Les Amiaux - Krisand Sharon were very organised and helpful. The mobile home had everything we needed for cooking and entertaining, and the kids loved the pools and slides etc. definitely considering a return trip as we think there is more to explore in the area!

    (Posted on 2013-08-27 22:20:00 by Mark and Sarah Nicholson)
  36. Just returned from 2 fantastic weeks at Les Amiaux. Caravan was very clean and well appointed and Kris and Sharon were always on hand for tapping into a bit of local knowledge!
    The site itself felt very safe and secure which allowed the kids (5&7) a little bit of freedom to roam around on their bikes and make lots of new friends.....which in turn gave us a break too!
    Definitely returning next year!

    (Posted on 2013-08-22 08:20:00 by neil farmery)
  37. What a fab holiday. The site was everything a family could need & more, very clean & nicely secluded pitches. The caravan was lovely, great pitch with good facilities particularly with free wifi/sky for our teenage girls when not out exploring or sunbathing! Fabulous area, the whole Vendee coastline from Noirmoutier to les Sables was utterly breathtaking. Wonderful sights, a huge buzz in the fishing ports/beaches, exceptionally clean everywhere we went but watch the electronic public toilets, we sure had a few laughs in that dept..!! The creperies & cafes were just delightful.

    Would highly recommend the site, the caravan B18 pitch & the Vendee coastline, a perfect holiday!! Thank you Sharon & Kris for sharing it x

  38. We would both like to thank you we had a fantastic holiday, The campsite was beautiful but the accomodation was amazing, way better than anything we have stopped in previous years.We were also impressed with the personal touches that would have come at an additional cost with the big operators. We both look forward to rebooking with you for 2014.

    (Posted on 2013-07-12 10:41:00 by Sue & Steve Gell)
  39. We all enjoyed our time on site.

    We will have no problems recommending you and no problems about holidaying with you in the future

  40. we had a great time,the site we found to be ideal for our needs with two children 12 and 10 every body was happy although we were out and about most of the time.the weather was fantastic, we would definately consider re booking in the future no problem

    (Posted on 2012-11-16 20:03:00 by Carl)
  41. The holiday was probably one of the best we have ever had,the site was really good even though it was still early season. Your caravan was in a good location on the site which we were able to soak up the sun when it came out. Never having been to that part of France before we enjoyed touring around the many lovely villages,and sampling the delights of the bistros and resturants.
    The beach at St.John must be one of europes best and also the cleanest.
    Once again thank you both and we now looking forward to our next visit to Vendee

  42. We had a fabulous time in les Amiaux. Campsite and mobile were first class
    kids loved the pools the only thing we could fault was the weather it rained
    for a couple of days but we wont hold that against you lol...
    Its a beautiful place and we will certainly be recomending the area and
    your mobile to our friends and hope to return next year.

  43. just wanted to say we had a wonderful time on holiday, we enjoyed the campsite and the caravan was in a really good place and had sun all the time. Were definitely thinking of going back next year so when you have prices and available dates for next year could you let me know please

  48. A big thank you for a fantastic holiday. Your caravan was lovely, comfortable and clean. We will definitely return as it was one of the best holidays we have had! The kids absolutely loved the pool area. The park ticked all our boxes and the weather was glorious with temperatures around 30 deg most of the time

  51. The caravan was all that we hoped for and very clean when we arrived, the indoor pool and slides are an excellent addition. We tend to just do our own thing and not stay all the time on site so it was a very suitable base. We will certainly consider coming again.
