Initially we loved this campsite but:
Toilets are outdoors, do have toilet paper, don’t have toilet seats. Not 4 Star, in our opinion.
On our first morning, we had one warm shower and one cool shower.
Day two, showers were cold and had to go to reception to try to resolve problem. Problem was eventually resolved, but the inconvenience factor and delay was not unsubstantial.
Added to this, there was a gas delivery, and the tanker was pretty much on top of our pitch, waking us up.
Would love to return, but would regret it, if the showers were freezing, again!
We didn't end up actually staying here, as we took a look around and although the pool was appealing the shower and toilet facilities and the over crowded pitches were unappealing, then to top it off we found the owners to be rude and unwelcoming.
Lovely campsite with good size pitches,very few pitches suitable for Motorhome over 8m .Pitches can be sandy but solid .Very friendly staff.
Waste disposal point for Motorhome very tight we were unable to us it.
There could be more water taps on the site we only found one.
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.
We loved this site. staff really helpful, wonderful beach 20 mins walk, lovely market/village 15 mins walk. great spot to cycle too. pool lovely. We're going again this year !!
Another that became a fave very quickly. Really friendly, in middle of trees, close to beach and lovely little village. Fantastic, tho need to book beforehand as gets very very busy.
This site is well working, have a good location, and is a good base to enjoy the island. Bring or hire bikes is an excellent way to get around. Some mobile kitchens visit the camp in high season, but the island have other better options for eating out. Camping prices are high.
