By staying at the campsite Les Vagues, you will be a few minutes away from the seaside resort of Saint Gilles Croix de Vie.
In Saint Gilles Croix de Vie, fishing has been an institution for many years. Its port is also known for its blue fish fishing. You have probably already heard of or even tasted the canned sardines of La Perle des Dieux, which are fished in the Vendée.

the fish you catch is for you! Cook it and enjoy it for lunch!
You can book your sea fishing trip with ” L’ami du pêcheur ” or ” Mephisto IV “.
