Second visit to this site and would definitely go again.
Four elements of this review I feel unable to give a valid comment on therefore I have left blank.

This campsite no longer has any catering services. No shop, bread only if pre ordered. Absolute minimum guest services. A very different campsite from the ACSI description and last year. It must be in new ownership who do not want to give the services but still charge the same price. Think carefully before booking!

Extremely helpful staff. Very centrally situated for touring island. Plenty of quiet roads and cycle tracks adjacent. The island is excellent for those who like safe and easy cycling. The village of La Coularde had character and enough shops to cater for holiday needs. Site was 10 minutes walk from lovely beach, close to bus stops for touring island or visiting La Rochelle at reasonable cost. A bonus was an excellent swimming pool with a retractable roof for cooler days. Pitches were good but a bit tight for large outfits, but ok with use of mover.

This site is very formally laid out, with the pitches in long rows. There are tall hedges surrounding each pitch which makes them reasonably private. The site is quite attractive with plenty of trees. There is a pool, although we didn't use it. The toilets and showers are shared (male / female) but are very clean - they seemed to be cleaned at least twice each day. There is a small village quite near to the site, with a small supermarket, a market and a few shops. Cycle lanes lead from the site and it is possible to easily cycle along the coast to St Martin and beyond. The site staff were courteous and spoke English. We enjoyed our stay here in May.

A nice friendly site in a quiet location but ideally placed near the centre of the island so ideal for cycling to anywhere. And the cycling is superb with traffic-free cycle tracks everywhere. I was very impressed that the site had water points ever twenty metres or so, so it was very easy to fill up my campervan every day using a watering can! The staff were helpful and friendly and bread could be ordered each day. There was a very nice swimming pool, ideal for children.
The showers were nice and hot, which is were some sites are not very good and this was the only site in three weeks all over France where the showers had a small shelf for soap and shampoo.

I'm not sure I's like to pay forty Euro a night in high season (Ile de Re seems expensive!) but at the normal ACSI price of sixteen Euro this site was great value.

We enjoyed our stay here. Hired bikes from the campsite for half a day and rode quite a way around the island, beautiful scenery. Facilities were top notch however we were directed to a sloping, rocky pitch with many tree roots protruding. Wasn't very suitable for a tent!

Fantastic site, staff very helpful and friendly even fixed leak in van for me.
The area is great for walking and biking, sea a short walk from site.
great takeaway van on site, free wifi and the pool is great on a hot day.
15 minute walk to nearest town which has a good selection of shops.
Would return again without hesitation.

A great campsite if you like walking or cycling. Flat cycle paths everywhere. Seafood heaven in the villages. You can pick oysters off the beach. No bread available in the quiet season. The village is about a 10 minute cycle ride away, it has a supermarket, nice shops, restaurants and bakery. Heated indoor pool. Nice and quiet in the off season. Reception staff were verry good. Free wifi available near recption/games room. Toilets were very good and clean. Reverse polarity power supplies (take a convertor if needed). Nice size pitches with water and electricity. Would use this site again.
