On vacation in the Vendée ?
Camping Puerta Del Sol is the ideal place to live an experience that combines comfort and conviviality. You can stay in a chalet, in a mobile home, in a tent or opt for glamping. This campsite with aquatic area allows you to book a rental in a simple and secure way. To discover one of the region’s must-see places, venture to the internationally renowned zoo.
A responsible and committed zoo
The Zoo of Les Sables d’Olonne is not an ordinary zoological park. It aims to raise visitors’ awareness of eco-conversation and of everyone’s responsibility to preserve biodiversity. Since 2012, the structure follows an eco-friendly management system which aims to limit its impact on the environment.
Through international collaboration and coordination, the Vendée Zoo supports conservation projects for endangered species such as the gibbon, the maned wolf and the anteater.
What to do during your visit?
This establishment actively works to protect the local fauna and flora and the rarest species. It is home to over 500 exotic animals. You will find 60 different species that are subject to European and international protection measures.
During your visit, you will be able to participate in the bilingual animations and the thematic days proposed by the zoo. Young and old alike will love contributing to the mealtime rituals.
Practical computer science
The Sables Zoo is open daily from February 6 to November 14. You can also visit this space during the Christmas vacations except on December 25 and January 1.
To get to the ecozoo, you can take the TER (regional train) which is 10 minutes away from the train station in Les Sables d’Olonne via the bus line 2 and get off at the “zoo” stop. By car, the journey takes less than an hour from the Puerta Del Sol campsite.
