Welcome to the Vendée ! We believe that if you are in the region, it is to try traditional food, right ? We would love to share with you the selection of our favourite places to eat around Saint Jean de Monts.

Pastries, baguettes and more

If you are looking for the closest bakery from the holiday park, we would recommend Monts Pain in Notre Dame des Monts. The bakery is located 3 km away from Les peupliers de la Rive and sells many typical french pastries and specialities of the region such as le flan maraichin, le délice des chouans and more.

Local markets

A nice way to try local food is to buy food at markets.
In Notre Dame de Monts, situated only 3 km from the holiday park, markets are taking place all year long. Every summer, we recommend you try the market at “Place de la Mairie” held on Tuesday mornings to taste local products in a musical atmosphere.
On the other side of the holiday park, 4 km away, in Saint Jean de Monts, there are several markets where you can buy local fruits, vegetables, fish and seafood, and other traditional food. Buying from local producers is a good way to be sure your food comes from the region.
