Low cost airlines serve the Vendée area and car hire is available at airports. Nantes airport is just an hour from LPO; Rennes and La Rochelle are around two hours away. For an extended holiday, some guests choose to fly to Paris and spend several days sightseeing before their onward journey to Le Pas Opton. Flights to the region are available from regional airports across the UK and Eire.
From Spring half term to 18th September, a minibus service operates to and from Nantes airport every Monday. Places are limited. The timing of the service depends on flight times and may not coordinate with your own plans, so you may have to wait at the airport or at the holiday park for your accommodation to be ready. One-way fares start from £25/adult or £82 for a family of four (2 adults, 2 children). Booked in advance, a taxi between the airport and LPO costs around €120.
