My friend has medical difficulties and some mobility issues and when I spoke to you regarding this, and then passed the information onto her, it gave her confidence and excitement, that a holiday at LPO could be a possibility. When she rang to book, the staff were extremely helpful and again, gave her confidence and put her mind at rest, that this could work as a holiday for her and her two girls.
Her pickup from Nantes airport was extremely helpful and she really appreciated this. When she arrived at LPO, she instantly felt at ease, having met and spoken with the office team regarding her situation. The mobile home they had been allocated was perfect for her needs and she settled in quickly.

At Le Pas Opton, our aim is to make sure that the park and its activities are accessible for all so that everyone feels welcome and included. If there is any kind of disability or issue that may prevent you from fully enjoying your holiday, please let us know and we will do our very best to accommodate you.
Here are some of the ways we can help…
We have two specially-designed accessible mobile homes – Beechwood A and B. Both have ramp access, wide doors, and an accessible toilet/wetroom. The Printemps villa is also accessible for wheelchair users.
Our Luxury Tents are also an option for wheelchair users as the doors are wide and there are no steps. It is also possible to enlarge the size of a bedroom or create one large space. Most mobile homes are accessible for wheelchair users who can get up and walk a few steps, although internal doors are too narrow for wheelchairs.
Reception and main marquee have ramped access and the bar is accessed through automatic sliding doors. Both amenity blocks offer accessible showers and toilets, plus a lowered washing up sink.
New for 2021/22! We now also have a ramp up to the bar terrace, more automatic sliding doors and completely refurbished accessible toilets in the bar.
We can also arrange hire of a wheelchair for your holiday. Please call us for more information.
We are happy to advise you about renting special equipment locally such as a hoist or lifting bed. We can also help organise renting oxygen cylinders and arranging dialysis at a local hospital amongst other things.
Adults with learning disabilities
In early June we normally offer a holiday week intended especially for people with learning disabilities, their families and carers. The programme combines spiritual and leisure activities, as well as providing opportunities to join in with other guests. For 2021, this week has moved to 30 August - 6 September. To find out more about what to expect in future, please see here.
Children with additional needs
Our programme for children and young people from 0 to 18 aims to be as inclusive as possible. Some children may need some additional support to fully access the programme.
We are not able to offer one-to-one care due to the limited number of staff working in each age group, but we will do our best to accommodate your child. We encourage parents to stay with their children until both they and our programme team are confident that the child can be properly supported.
Sensory Mobile Home
We have introduced a dedicated mobile home for children and young people who need a separate sensory environment. The Sensory Mobile Home is situated close to the marquee and will be available to parents, carers and group leaders. It has a small outside terrace, access ramp and wide door. It is equipped with soft play items, bean bags and sensory toys.
Swimming pool access
The pool area can be accessed by wheelchair users. As you can see from the photo above, there is also a hoist to help people with mobility difficulties get into and out of the pool using the chair attachment, or by having their own harness fixed to the hoist’s spreader bar.
