This was the most expensive site we visited this trip which was hard to justify (outside of ACSI discount). The site has some good and some poor pitches, we did eventually choose a good one but only after rejecting the proposed inappropriate pitch - why not let us walk and choos first like everyone else does? The site is superbly located at the top of \'Re\' with so much to see by bike - especially the beaches, villages, markets and sunsets from beneath the lighthouse. Quiet site with a nice feel but not good value compared to so many superb campsites we\'ve visited this trip

Nette camping met kleine staanplaatsen maar mooie omgeving en dicht bij de vuurtoren die je mag beklimmen (ruim 175 treden). Dan heb je een schitterend uitzicht en je kunt er heel mooie fietstochten maken. Zeker de moeite waard dat eiland geen zwembad maar de zee

Fijne rustige camping aan zee. Bij de camping zelf kan niet gezwommen worden maar circa 500 meter verderop is zandstrand en zwemgelegenheid. De camping wordt zeer goed onderhouden, het sanitair is modern en schoon. Vriendelijk personeel. Wifi is gratis maar alleen beschikbaar bij de receptie en de speelzaal. Geen restaurant op de camping maar er zijn genoeg restaurantjes op loopafstand (bij de vuurtoren van Ile de Ré).

leuke camping aan einde van het eiland bij de vuurtoren sanitair is pas vernieuwd en zeer mooi de plaatsen zijn wat aan de kleine kant je kunt van de camping zo naar het strand en je kunt er prachtig fietsen op het eiland met de zoutmeren

fidèle à ce camping depuis très longtemps en basse saison car très familial et accueillant. Super endroit pour se reposer et profiter de la nature sans prendre la voiture.

A lovely peaceful site with very new and spotlessly clean toilet facilities. Such kind and friendly staff who take pride in their site and go out of their way to be helpful. Pitches are a good size but very sandy so a groundsheet is useful. We hired bikes from the site and had great fun touring the local area. Easy walking/cycling to local restaurants and lovely beaches. The Ile de Re is well worth a visit and we would definitely recommend this campsite.

Très joli vrai camping privilégiant des emplacements spacieux ombragés ou ensoleillés; Des sanitaires très confortables et toujours très propres. Quelques mobilhomes mais pas trop . Très calme et dans un cadre resté très sauvage. Bravo! Continuez comme ça
