This was our first visit to the island of Ile de Re and we chose to book at Les Varennes as a result of their Internet presentation along with reviews that we had read. Our actual experience was far better than what we had been expecting. The standard of cleanliness was excellent with even our pitch being prepared (removal of excess tree leaf fall etc) prior to our arrival. The staff were always available even beyond the advertised office opening times to offer advice with recommendations where appropriate and were, without exception, always extremely polite, respectful and friendly. We were especially appreciative of the efforts that the family made in ensuring that there were adequate seats for those people wishing to watch the live Euro 2016 football matches - even more so considering the sometimes late finishes. The facilities, including the open air and indoor heated swimming pools, free WiFi, bicycle rental for those not wanting to hunt endlessly for any cheaper deals but get on with their holiday and small although perfectly adequate shop all helped to create a wonderful holiday experience for my wife and I. In short, we are already looking forward to repeating the experience in 2017. Although we weren\'t able to thank all the personnel involved in ensuring our stay was made enjoyable - we are full of appreciation for each and every one of those involved at Les Varennes for the TEAM effort. Thank you.

A really nice campsite offering both pitches for tents, caravans or motor home. Alternatively huts of various sizes and prices are also available to hire. Set approximately 300 meters from a wide sandy beach and centrally located this site is ideally located for those wishing to explore the island. Friendly and helpful staff along with modern amenities including WiFi add to it\'s appeal. The photo shown on this page is outdated with the indoor heated pool and outside pools being new in 2016.

Stayed 8 very enjoyable nights in our touring caravan. We visited the site a few nights before & booked in as it was very busy. This is a fab small friendly site. Great reception team who spoke good English & showed us to our pitch. Pitches can be a bit tight to get onto round the trees but ok with a mover. Pitches mainly had some tree shade with sandy base. The modern sanitaires were mixed but were always clean with a twice daily cleaning session. There was very good free wifi which we were able to use on our pitch. The outdoor pool was lovely as was the new indoor pool. I would imagine at the height of the season the pool area would be very crowded. It was an easy walk or quick cycle to the market which was held daily & the fish market was amazing. Overall a great location & lovely site.

Zeer mooie camping met ruime plaatsen, mooi nieuw binnen- en buitenzwembad, sanitair prima. Personeel vriendelijk en behulpzaam . Een echte aanrader met CCA-tarief.

Leuke camping om het eiland te verkennen. Vanaf de camping zit je snel op de fietsroutes. Wij stonden hier begin juni 2016. Sanitair werd keurig schoongehouden en het zwembad was heerlijk. Plaatsen wel zanderig, wat bij nat weer minder is. WiFi gratis en erg goed, maar is beperkt tot 2 apparaten.

Très agréable camping, bien situé (près de pinèdes et mer et pas très loin du centre) accueil agréable, très propre, calme, mais nous y avons séjourné 10 jours jusqu\'à la fermeture et donc : pas de salle télé, ni bar (alors qu\'on a du mal à la capter et même pas du tout avec les grands arbres : fin septembre les soirées sont longues dans un camping car) et piscine de plus en plus froide.....Eau chaude et sanitaires chauffés jusqu\'au dernier jour. Je pense qu\'on y retournera,
