The best campsite in Loire-Atlantique
The best campsite in Loire-Atlantique is Vnaya Village La Riviera, a 4 star campsite, with its feet in the Atlantic Ocean, less than one nautical mile from the Grande Plage de Tharon in the seaside area of Saint-Michel-Chef, Tharon-Plage.
Unparalleled marine landscapes are offered to you on more than 1 km of fine sand. The northern part is reserved for nautical activities (sailing, sand yachting, …), the central part for families with supervision in summer and the southern side for the fisheries – emblematic fishermen’s huts full of history with elegant silhouettes. At this level, the beach of Tharon becomes beach of the Source undoubtedly because of the presence of a source of drinking water. Backed by a vast dune area, this urban beach offers a preserved environment. While being close to all amenities, it feels like being on a secluded beach.
