South Wales Rally 2023 to Vendee

  • Vendee beach 1

The rally starts at Riva Bella, just a short drive from the port of Caen, near Ouistreham. This site is a popular stopover point for members travelling to or from Caen, with extended Reception opening hours to accommodate ferry arrivals and departures.

Following your overnight stay you'll continue your journey south travelling 260 miles to Saint Giles Croix de Vie to the campsite of Domaine de Beaulieu.

This attractive and spacious campsite is perfectly located just 1.5 km from the sandy beaches of Vendee. Take time to visit Saint Gilles Croix-de-Vie, just a 10 minute drive away, where you will find quayside bars and restaurants, pedestrianised streets, lively weekly markets and a thriving marina.

If you get the chance you should take an unforgettable trip to the historical, world class theme park and evening spectacular of le Puy du Fou or cross the famous Passage du Gois and visit the wonderful island of Noirmoutier. Enjoy its nature reserves and salt marshes. Take a walk in the Bois de la Chaize or the Bois des Eloux which is located by the sea or visit the marina of l'Herbaudière.
