Our good plans with children
Going on vacation with children can prove to be a real headache, especially when your tribe is large, when the youngest still needs 2 naps while your teenager is asking to go out at night!
First, know that you are in a territory conducive to family getaways. You'll avoid the crowds and find plenty of places to relax or let off steam. The sites to visit are close to each other and you will escape long car journeys. No more famous “When are we arriving?! »
Do not panic ! Get inspired by our good plans to disconnect from everyday life and reconnect with your little ones.
We don't really know why, but seeing 2 or 4 legged, furry or feathered companions is always a pleasure during the holidays! Visit the educational farm "The Vegetable Garden of Z'Animals", the mini-farm of Great Challenge or sign up for a pony baptism. Also keep an eye on our cultural agenda : the Tourist Office offers during the summer visits to producers local. Some raise sheep, goats, chickens or even snails. More unusual, try a donkey ride at the donkey farm Câlins Ca-ânes.
It's obvious, after all these weeks on the school benches, your cherubs need to let off steam on vacation! After having trudged over the Bibrou sports course, rolled on the cycle paths secure and frolicking on our hiking routes, they should sleep well tonight, right?
Always not ? So do them row at Lac du Jaunay, swim at aquatic Center and end the day on one of the playgrounds. Still not tired?
Le Great Challenge is THE nature leisure park for family physical activities. It offers a wide range of activities, several of which can be practiced from the age of 2. While the teenagers are having a blast at the Galactic Laser, the youngest is enjoying a pony ride.
Do you have little explorers at home? " Why ?" and how ?" are some of the words you hear often during the day. Bring them to the Pond Trail which presents small aquatic fauna, discover the hedge and its assets at Little Val Gaillard or watch the birds on the observatory walkway from Lac du Jaunay. During school holidays, the Tourist Office offers many nature activities such as the Jaunay'Scapades et Spring Getaways which can also fascinate your knowledge-hungry darlings.
Great "treasure hunt"
Discovery yes, walk not too much? Play the modern treasure hunt card to inspire your kids to move forward. The 8 courses of Geocaching will make you discover the Pays des Achards in a fun way. And in front of the puzzles of our interactive game Adventure Lab in Les Achards (La Mothe-Achard district), little adventurers will forget to complain about having sore legs!
Top "culture and outings"
La Ferie of Santons is THE museum to visit with children. 700 authentic figurines animate 8 miniature villages and tell magical stories.
Children's shows occupy an important place in the cultural season in the Land of Pickles. Scheduled as part of the Hivernales or by the library network, you are bound to find what you are looking for. During the summer months, festivals, fireworks and village fetes invite families out.
It's fun to sleep in another bed! All the campsites in our territory meet the needs of families. Note, however, The sheepfold for its "camping on the farm" atmosphere and its sheepfold where you can pet the sheep at any time of the day.
And if you increase the scenery by choosing a unusual accommodation during your vacation? the Domain of Boere et At the Edge of the Oaks invite you to have sweet dreams in a bubble, a tepee, a tree house, a pyramid, a yurt, a caravan or even a boat!
Let's face it: going to a restaurant with children can turn into a nightmare if the service is too long or if the menu lacks fries! Better to choose a place “kid-friendly” so that the meal is pleasant for all the guests.
You can bet on safe bets guaranteed by pizzerias et Signorizza in Les Achards (La Chapelle district). Rest'O Landes in Saint-Julien-des-Landes offers pizzas, but also traditional French cuisine, a perfect compromise for the whole family! Although the map of the Auberge du Jaunay at La Chapelle-Hermier gives pride of place to pancakes and pancakes, there is also meat, fish and salads. Add to that a panoramic view of the lake, a bucolic setting and everything is there to have a good time with your family!
The "top of the top" to eat with children is the bar / restaurant The Snack at the Chapelle-Hermier. This terrace-guinguette located in the enclosure of the donkey farm Câlins Ca-ânes, the donkeys graze a few steps from the tables while the chef prepares homemade dishes for you.
For all establishments, remember to book to avoid disappointment and cravings!
Do you just want to take a gourmet break?
From April to September, go and taste the ice creams made with the milk of Maraîchines cows at the Grand Bois Farm to Martinet! Also think about “free picking” from our producers; the strawberry plantation Fruits of the Earth in Saint-Georges-de-Pointindoux is productive from the end of May to the end of September, then it will be the turn of the apples, pears and kiwis that you will find here:
- Landes orchards in Les Achards (La Mothe district)
- The Malvergne orchards in Martinet
- The Brunetière orchards in Nieul-le-Dolent.
Your little pickers will be delighted to taste their harvest on one of our picnic areas, often located near bodies of water and playgrounds.
