The mobile home was brand new, clean and very functional. Vendee region very beautiful, local people very friendly, highly recomended holiday all together for families with kids. Will do it again.

“I had to mail to to let you know we are back from Clarys Plage since Monday and oh my god did we have an amazing time. From start to finish we couldn't find fault with anything and the staff on site Andrew and John were absolutely fabulous to us. Everything on the site was fab and the pools were amazing as were the playgrounds we had two very happy little boys. The girls in the kids club Cara and Laura were fantastic and Sam just loved going there. Both the kids and ourselves had an amazing time and before we left we booked with Andrew to go back again next year.
The whole experience was amazing and we all really want to thank you for all your help with the booking. We have recommended ye to so many people so hoping it will get ye more business for next year.
Thank you so much Leesa

“Just back from an 8 night holiday on Le Clarys Plage and what a holiday it was!!! We booked with Hello France and stayed in one of their Sauterne mobile homes. We were expecting it to be a holiday more for the kids but boy were we wrong, everyone from the youngest age 2 to the oldest age 56 had what we all described 'the best holiday ever'. We were a large group so I'm sure we had the girls in the office (Jennifer & Lisa) driven mad but they were so friendly and professional everytime we picked up the phone to them. They ensured that we had all the info we needed to hand and gave great advice as they had stayed there themselves, we actually met Lisa onsite on holidays with her family, also a large group booking.
When we arrived onsite we were met by Holly and Danny who had their work cut out trying to check us all in but they did it all in their stride. They ensured that we had everything we needed and popped by on occasion to make sure all was ok - which it always was :)
The mobiles themselves were spotless and very spacious, we are a family of 6 and take up alot of space but with the outside decking area we had plenty room. Bbq with every mobile also so we ate very well most nights :)
The campsite itself was second to none. It had a lovely playground at the front of the site and the pool complex was fantastic with heated pools, a lazy river (also heated), a great aqua area and an indoor pool. The bar and takeaway were always busy with plenty inside and outdoor seating. There is a supermarket right next door where you could pick up the essentials but we went to the Super U in Saint-Jean-de-Monts and it had a fantastic variety. Bike Hire next door practically and beach 5 minutes away. We couldn't ask for anything more.
Hello France ran a kids club every weekday with the smaller kids in the morning and the older kids in the evening, thanks to Conor and Daire for their endless energy in entertaining the kids. On one evening they arranged a treasure hunt which was great fun with the adults trying to outdo each other more so than the kids, sadly we didn't win the yummy cake.
We have been onto the girls in the office and have booked already for 2015 and we cant wait. ”
- The Lyons Group
“Just back from our first holiday in Le Clarys Plage...amazing :-) we have 4 children, oldest is 12 and youngest is 18 months and everyone of them loved it! Thanks to Daire & Conor especially in the Kids Club for great entertainment & fun days! I would highly recommend it, and we can't wait to return next year! Enjoy the rest of the summer :-) O'Sullivan Family, Cork.”
- Regina O'Sullivan
“Just a quick note to let you know that we had a wonderful time in sol a gogo and to thank Jennifer and Hello France for providing such an enjoyable, hassle free holiday. The campsite was excellant and Mark and Kelly were so very helpful - even when it came to flat tyres.....! We will definately be recommending Sol as a destination (and of course Hello France).
- The Clarkes (Meath)
“Just spent 16 nights in sol a gogo with hellofrance ( july 2013 ). Great little camp site, very small and safe. Fantastic pool complex with addictive slides! The beach access is a huge advantage, literally yards from the mobile homes. We've been to france 5 times on 'camping' holidays and this was definitely the most straightforward in terms of planning/booking..everything done in minutes in the hellofrance office in cork city ( thanks Derry! ). We will definitely be returning to sol a gogo in 2014.”
- Murray family, Cork.
“Well what can I say - 4th time travelling to France with Hello France and yet again they have been super.
Just returned from 10 nights on Le Clary's plage and it was the best site so far. Brenda and Jon even came to check were we ok as we hadn't been in touch during our stay - there was no need everything was perfect. Our mobile was a stones throw from the bar/pool/playground/kids club/soccer pitch etc. The site has everything and is so clean, friendly and just perfect.
I'll be hoping to return again to this site. Well done again Hello France. ”
- Buckley Family
“We have just returned home from spending 12 nights at Le Clary's Plage. It was our first time staying on this site. The minute we arrived we were made welcome by the reps Brenda and Jon. They were so helpful throughout our stay. Our Daughters loved the pool& the playground. They had great fun at the kids club. The entertainment in the evenings was suited to both adult and children and was very enjoyable. There is so much to do on this camp site you would not have to leave . However if you like to see other areas there are beautiful towns just a short drive away. Our Family had a fantastic holiday and would highly recommend Hello France. Leesa and Derry were exceptionally helpful from the moment we booked with them. Feeding us with lots of friendly tips and advice. We cant wait to book again for next year.
Willie, Lorraine, Jess and Donna.”
- Willie O Callaghan
“Just home from 2 weeks in Clarys Plage.
Perfect family holiday, kids aged 8 & 6 had a great time @ the kids club & the pool area.
We had a fantastic holiday, thanks to all the Hello France Team on site.
Looking forward to next year.
Tim, Jack, Shirley & Trevor.”
- Kavanagh Family.
“Not many sleeps left to our annual pilgrimage to Clarys the 13 of us in our horseshoe of 4 mobiles can't wait , see ye all shortly Marianne & co. this is our 4th time here in this fab park chat shortly and many thanks to Leesa, Jen & the new member of hello family Sheila and of course Derry we'll see you in June. Bon vacance Martin&Suzy from Cork”
- Martin & Suzy
“Its January its 2013 and time to plan the holidays again and there is no question as to where that might be 'Sol a Gogo' Campsite with Hello France - here we come again!!!! That is the Gallagher and Dunne Families on tour. This is the most popular holiday park with Hello France customers so we must get in there early. While browsing the Hello France Website I feel I really should leave a note for other families browsing and in search of a 'little hamlet'
This Year 2013 will be our 6th year to go back to this Park and it sounds like we have no imagination but on the other hand this place has everything you might have on your checklist when looking for a park. Sol a Gogo is an excellent campsite for families with young children, very safe and as campsites go 'small' and this makes it easy for the kids and adults to make friends. It has direct access to wonderful beaches accessed by a security gate, great cycle routes so you can bring your own bikes or hire them locally, forest adventure parks (The Feeling Forest and quad biking) . The children in our group range from 8 to 18 and still want to go back to Sol a Gogo. The village of Les Mouettes is a short stroll away and St Jean de Monts is a 10 minute drive and has also got great breach activities, restaurants, bars, markets etc. You could also simply jog to the St jean de Monts. A lot of people we met over the years continue to return and last year I think there were about ten families that we knew there again so that says a lot.
Top quality accommodation with Hello France (Irish Company) various size mobile homes all with decking and gas BBQ
Shop and takeaway
Heated outdoor Adult and childrens pool,
Great water slides into a safe separate outdoor part of the pool and a chute into the indoor pool.
Poolside bar where you can sit and have lunch while watching the activities of your not so young children.
Early morning Aerobics in the pool.
Direct access to golden sandy beach - great for an early morning or late evening run, walk or BBQ or picnic.
Evening entertainment in the lively bar with disco's, magic shows, karaoke and live bands, quiz etc
Other activities include, soccer, basketball, treasure hunts, games room.
Above all you can park your car for the duration of your holidays and unless you want to tour the area you really dont need it.
The on-site reps are great, very helpful and will sort out any of your little problems.
(Mark and Kelly we hope you will be there again this year)
The Hello France staff are great to deal with in Cork (Leesa and Jennifer) and from the time you make that first call you are given the best service.
Believe me if you have a young family and want to take your first holiday to France then you should simply book this place. I cannot guarantee the weather but can guarantee you a great park. We cant wait to get back again.
Thank you Hello France
- Patricia Gallagher
“We had a wonderful week with Hello France in Le Clarys Plage. The Mobile was very clean and spacious. It was in a particularly nice location in the Park and we enjoyed the decking and BBQ. The Couriers, Martina and Will, were exceptionally nice and helpful. The weather was a bit changeable, but we have no control over that!! Our Grandaughter met up with her friend from last year, who was also with Hello France, and had a great time.
Thank you for your help in arranging our booking so efficiently. We would have no hesitation in going with Hello France again or recommending it to our friends.”
- Catherine Malone
“Great holiday in Sol a Gogo (June 2012). We (me, wife and 3 kids, 11, 6 & 3) are just back from 2 weeks holiday in France with Hello France. We had a great time in Sol a Gogo where Mark and Kelly looked after us. The cabin had 2 bedrooms, 1 double bed & one with 3 single beds (1 bunk). The cabins were SNUG but had all we needed except for an oven or TV. There was a microwave oven which we used one time for a pizza and it was great. The cabin had a deck and BBQ which were essential. The hot water did go out on us 3 times in the two weeks but Mark & Kelly had it sorted within a few minutes. They were always at the end of the phone. The campsite was very clean with direct access to the beach via a coded gate. There is a bar, take away, tourist information office, great pool area and great playground. Our kids spent hours there. We would recommend Sol a Gogo and Hello France to our friends.”
- Gerard & Audrey Kearney
“Have just returned from 9 days at Le Clarys Plage with friends. What a great place - the pool complex is absolutely fantastic if you have small children, and many thanks to Martina and Will for looking after us so well, you are a real credit to Hello France. We hope to come back next year, so looking forward to seeing 2012 price list ASAP. x”
- The Willes Family
“Just wanted to let you know how grateful we are to Will, Martina and Patrick for ensuring we had a fabulous time at Le Clarys Plage on our 2011 visit to France!
This is our 7th visit to the park, first visit in August, as usual they went out of their way to check that we were happy and Patrick even convinced our daughter to attend the kids club. The first time anyone has ever persuaded her to join one and she is almost eleven!!! She was counting down the hours to 4pm every day! You have a very hard working, friendly staff that really make a difference.
We hope to return next summer, possibly for an even longer stay!
- The Moore Family
“Leesa / Jennifer
Just a quick email to say thank you for making our 2011 holiday a most enjoyable holiday for the fourth year in a row at Le Clarys Plage.
Giving us the option and making all the arrangements to allow us stay the 3rd week was very much appreciated.
Again as every year Will & Martina are a credit to your company in the way they conduct their business and oversee the needs of your clients at Le Clarys Plage.
Patrick as always was superb with the kids during camp, and the same goes for Kara & Conor who assisted Patrick this year. The Hello France camp always seemed to be the busiest everyday, guaranteeing the kids always had great fun and the opportunity to make lots of friends.
Looking forward to next year already
Thank you again

“Just back from Sol A Gogo, had a great time, we have two small kids, so with the Beach (great beach) on your doorstep and a great pool ,which is very safe, it made life much easier.
Good activities in the bar every night for the kids.
Great staff to deal with in Cork (Leesa and Jennifer) and France (Mark and Kelly)
- Jim Dwyer

Thank you so much to Kelly and Mark from Hello France for being so nice to us and treating us like family. We relly enjoyed your company. Thank you also to Jennifer in your Cork office who recommended the site and arranged our package for us. Hello France is lucky to have you Jennifer. We will be back! ”

“Our family really enjoyed our stay in Sol a Gogo. The facilities and beach were wonderful.”
- Bill O'Callaghan
Myself and my family booked a holiday with your company in Sol A Gogo a couple of years
ago, staying for a glorious week in July.
From the moment we enquired with you to book, your friendly and helpful staff were so
welcoming it felt like our holiday had already begun.
When we arrived in Sol A Gogo campsite, again the staff there were very welcoming
and friendly. The spacious mobile home was clean and had everything we needed for a
comfortable break there.
The campsite being quiet was perfect for ourselves and our kids who loved the great pool
area with the fun slides and also laved being so close to the beach.
My wife particularly loved being a short distance along the dunes to the long wide open fine
sandy 8 kms beach linking St. Jean de Monts to St. Gilles, where she could walk in the warm
sunshine in the mornings.
The campsite has a great location near shops and restaurants, but is also quiet, giving the
impression it is away from it all.
We booked only a week and of course wanted to stay the whole summer. Our kids made
good pals while there and were very sad to leave. We'll just have to go back so.
I couldn't recommend Sol A Gogo and Hello France more to anyone wanting a relaxing and
fun holiday perfectly suitable for a family. Thanks again.

Thank you "Hello France" for a wonderful holiday in Port De Plaissance. Our first time to try a campsite holiday and although we were very unlucky with the weather, first two weeks June 2010, we absolutely loved it and we are already planning another holiday with Hello France. The site was perfect for us with two toddlers. Very safe, fab indoor pool which was great for the rainy days and our reps Jackie and Bill were amazing. They couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and although never intrusive, were always there when we needed them with practical help and great advice on where to go and what to do,and always with a smile. This site is perfect, if like us it is your first time as it was so close to ferry, under two hours and a surprisingly straight drive. Loved it and looking forward to booking our next visit. Thanks again ”
- Maeve Kenny
“Just back from Sol a Gogo - what a wonderful holiday we had! Amazing location and it is actually on the beach. The sunsets on the beach every night are fantastic. A lovely friendly site, great atmosphere. Cannot praise this campsite highly enough and also Hello France for recommending it. Julie and Kevin were fantastic - never in your face but always available when needed. Adored the holiday, the location, the beach - everything about it was perfect - including the weather. I want to go back tomorrow!!!!!!”
- Helena Close
Now that I am back to normal I just wanted to write and thank you for the lovely prize:):):)
I had a wonderful holiday and the chalet was so lovely, Will and Martina were such great site hosts and couldn't have been more helpful. The area was lovely and the weather great.
Thank you very much and thanks to Hello France for the prize. I sent a postcard to KCLR the radio station where I won the prize to thank you all and mentioned you and Hello France.

“Derry and Team, Just a short note to say a big thanks for all of your help with our recent group booking. Our party of 21 people returned from Camping Palmyre Loisirs yesterday following a fortnight at the centre. Throughout our stay we were looked after by John the Hello France Rep - He was absolutely excellent, extremely attentive and a pleasure to deal with. We obviously thanked John personally for his tremendous work but wanted to make sure that we passed on our comments to yourselves also. In addition, I also wanted to thank everyone in the Cork office for your help and efficiency. I'm sure things are a little more difficult when you get a booking from a group and we really appreciated the ease with which everything was dealt. Thanks again for everything and we certainly look forward to booking with Hello France again in the future. David Wilson St.Michael's College Ailesbury Road Dublin 4”

“I wanted to e-mail with a big thank you to Hello France on behalf of myself and my family following our return from our first french holiday. From the booking process to our departure from the site I cannot recommend your company highly enough. We chose to stay in the SOL a GOGO site in St Jean de Monts (Aug 17th-29) following a recommendation from your sales representative Vincent. He was a joy to deal with on the phone and extremely helpful with any queries that I had. Upon arrival to the site we where greeted by Jan and Ed. They are a credit to the company and where always available if there where any problems, of which I am glad to say there where none. I have already discussed with the family and the all round thumbs up that the holiday received will ensure that I request next year's brochure in order to book another holiday with Hello France. Once again on behalf of myself and my family Merci Beaucoup Tara Cassidy”

“Teresa Galligan Just back from a 3 week holiday in France. Had a fantastic time in Palmyre Loisirs with our 2 children under 2! felt this site is ideal for teenagers as there is lots of entertainment organized for this age group everynight.Gerry & Marie were very helpful and friendly. The accommodation was 100% with everthing we needed.Spent our last 6 nights in La Caponnet campsite in Brem Sur Mer. The site was much quieter and peaceful which suited our children but might not please the teenagers! Site is more secluded and private with hedges seperating mobiles. Look forward to returning next year to France and will definetly book through hello france because of their competitive prices and standard of accommodation. Teresa”
