A luxury 'glamping' holiday in France with a choice of watersports right on your door step sounds like an ideal mix for a family watersports holiday in the big sailing region of the Vendee.

Original Camping and Alain Dominique Perrin attracted many foreign tourists last season on the island of Noirmoutier with their concept of glamorous camping, Glamping with plenty of waterports on tap including: Kitesurfing, Windsurfing, Sailing, Jetsking, Kayaking.

The only sport that you can’t practice on the island is surfing because the waves aren’t big enough. 

Canvas and wooden accommodation facing the Atlantic ocean charms water sports enthusiasts as well as lovers of relaxation, beautiful landscapes and pampering.

The site also boasts a Teens and Children's Clubs with 'quadrilingual' staff that, the owners say, has won over parents and children of all ages.

The advertised price for four people for one week starts at €1,199
