Alan Rogers Review
This campsite can be found at the western end of the Ile de Ré, very close to the imposing Phare des Baleines and just 100 m. from a sandy beach. Pitches are of average size, and most are equipped with 10A electricity. A good selection of mobile homes is available to rent. Leisure facilities here include an attractive pool with a wide sunbathing terrace and a multisport terrain. The bar/restaurant is the focal point for the site, and a range of activities and entertainment take place there throughout the high season, including a daily children’s club.
The Ile de Ré is a cyclists’ paradise with miles of marked tracks, several of which pass close to the site. The nearby village of Ars-en-Ré has been judged one of France’s most beautiful villages and is a delightful place for an evening stroll. The new Phare des Baleines is 57 m. high and has replaced Vauban’s earlier structure. There is a stunning panoramic view of the Charentais coastline from the top.

From La Rochelle cross the toll bridge to the Ile de Ré. Continue on D735 to Ars-en-Ré and then to St Clement-des-Baleines and the Phare des Baleines. The site is well signed from here. Large units should take care when turning into site.
