Alan Rogers Review

La Tour des Prises is a friendly, family site surrounded by vineyards, close to the village of La Couarde-sur-Mer on the southern side of the Ile de Ré. There are 140 pitches here (80-110 sq.m), 55 of which are occupied by fully equipped mobile homes and chalets (for rent). The 85 touring pitches are of a good size with electricity (16A) nearby. The site is just 500 m. from a fine sandy beach, the Plage des Prises. Cycling is particularly popular on the island thanks to the quality and extent of its cycle tracks, one of which passes the site.

La Couarde is a pleasant resort with 5 km. of beaches, backed by dunes and a pine forest. To the east, Saint Martin is the island’s capital and is a delightful town, with extensive fortifications dating back to the 17th century. To the north are the salt marshes of Loix, whilst at the western end of the island are the villages of Ars-en-Ré and Saint Clément des Baleines, with the historical Phare des Baleines at the farthest point; from the top of this lighthouse, dating from 1854, the views across the island can be spectacular.


Two unisex toilet blocks provide good facilities and are kept clean and fresh. The second block has been extended and refurbished to a high standard and includes excellent facilities for babies, children and disabled visitors. Laundry. Basic motorcaravan services.
