Great campsite. This is our third visit to the site in September. Staff have always been very helpful. Very quiet at night. Close to a 6km sandy beach. One of our favourite pass times is to walk along the beach (about an hour) to the next town for lunch ... then walk back. A great way to relax.

10 night stay with our caravan in September 2019. Good location, nice pools and modern and clean facilities. But limited showers and washbasins available. Site was full but reception is closed at times and bar closed.

Hele mooie camping op Il de Ré, met grote plekken, en centraal gelegen voor mooie fietstochten over het eiland. Ook leuk om over de brug te fietsen naar La Rochelle.
Mooi zwembad en goed sanitair dat ook goed schoon is. Personeel is vriendelijk en geeft veel info.

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!

Joli camping bien situé. Possible d’aller à pied au village et proche des pistes cyclables. Camping calme. Attention au emplacements sous les pins, la sève de pins est très collantes, mais se nettoie bien avec de la térébenthine. La piscine est très bien entretenue, comme tout le reste. Belle plage à proximité et magnifique coucher de soleil.

Echter Tipp. Auf dem Platz stimmt alles. Großzügige Stellplätze. Hallenbad beheizt. Kleiner Shop. Nettes Personal. Strandnähe 300 m suchen einen Waldweg. Und mit dem Rad tolle Touren möglich. Super

Mooie camping. Wel is reserveren noodzakelijk. Fijne ontvangst. Grote plekken, wel zanderig. Sanitair goed mrt warm water. Goed zwembad. Eiland perfect om aantal dagen te fietsen. Camping zeker een aanrader.

Camping très agréable et personnel hyper gentil. Cela a fait un peu oublier le temps maussade fin mai et, surtout, l\'impression d\'être le pigeon à plumer, non pas par le camping, mais par les commerces de l\'île, notamment au marché. Le poisson y est hyper cher et le comble, il n\'est pas toujours frais, comme dans certains villages gaulois!
