Camping VS holiday home in Saint-Jean-de-Monts: think about conviviality

To choose between camping and holiday home in Saint-Jean-de-Monts , you must first look at user-friendliness . After all, vacations are made to rest, but also to exchange and meet people.


In this case, camping is the personification of conviviality. Common areas, like the swimming pool , playgrounds, and barbecue areas, are perfect for making new friends.


Especially in a family campsite like Les Places Dorées, where every smile is an invitation to share unique moments.


Although more private, a vacation home in Saint-Jean-de-Monts can sometimes be isolating. Opportunities to meet other vacationers are limited to outdoor outings.


Which can be a good thing if you’re going with a large group of friends or the whole family, of course. It all depends on what you want from your vacation !

Choose your accommodation according to the activities

And what about the activities available?


In a campsite , a varied program of activities awaits you. From morning yoga to aquagym , including themed evenings, there is always something to do.


For holiday homes in Saint-Jean-de-Monts, activities often depend on your own initiatives. While this freedom may suit some, others may lack inspiration or resources to liven up their days.

Don’t forget the budget

In financial terms, the campsite offers excellent value for money. With a wide range of accommodation options, from tent sites to luxurious bungalows, there is something for every budget , without compromising on comfort or experience.


Conversely, renting a vacation home can be expensive, especially in high season. Additional costs, like electricity , water , and sometimes even linens, can add up quickly.

Do you want accommodation close to nature?

If you crave nature, camping is probably the best option.


Living at the campsite means falling asleep under the stars and waking up to the singing of birds. For example, at Places Dorées, our commitment to eco-responsible tourism allows you to enjoy the natural beauty of the Vendée while respecting the environment.


Depending on the location, a vacation home may offer some degree of closeness to nature, but the experience is generally not as immersive as that of a camping trip.
