Option 2 – Your viewing trip starts when you meet up with our customer service team at Nantes airport or at your hotel in Saint Gilles Croix de Vie where you can check-in and make the arrangements to view the park and the local area. You can then view the park on arrival if this is early afternoon or prior, you may then want to take a walk along the beach, explore surrounding towns and villages, take a drive around the local area or visit some of the local attractions. If you would like to take a drive and explore yourself then our team will always be on hand for advice, directions and any other information you may require. If required our team can inform you of the local area, the location of amenities, the way to the sea front, harbour, restaurants and answer any initial questions you may have.

You will now be able to relax for the rest of the day/evening in your hotel. The next day they will show you around the site (For a second time if required) and answer any further questions you may have before you head back to the airport for your return flight home.

We do not employ high pressure sales teams and at no time during the visit will you be under any pressure or obligation to purchase.
