What to do around this campsite by the sea on the Ile-de-Ré? >

Discover the natural wealth of the Île-de-Ré by bike

Take the time to explore the island that is called Ré La Blanche, because of the color of its small houses that dot its authentic villages. 

The island is best discovered by bike. Flat and with 110 km of bicycle paths, take advantage of this to leave your car at the campsite. This is how you will enjoy the island 100%: the salt marshes, the rich fauna that populates this amazing ecosystem, the preserved forests, the sand dunes. At the bend in the road, you may be lucky enough to discover a field ablaze with poppies or bursting with mustard flowers.

Stroll through the small villages

Don't miss the opportunity to soak up the soul of each village on the island, including

  • Saint-Martin-de-Ré: the most touristic and rich in history. Fortified city by Vauban, let yourself be surprised by its star-shaped enclosure. Observe the ballet of fishing boats in the port and stroll through the small shopping streets;
  • Saint-Clément-des-Baleines, 2 steps from the campsite. A former lobster fishing village, it is characterized by its traditional and quiet charm. The star not far from there: the Phare des Baleines, which dominates the island at 57 meters high. Climb its 257 steps to enjoy its superb panorama over the ocean and the beach of La Conche.
  • Ars-en-Ré: a splendid village flowered by hollyhocks, with its characteristic black and white bell tower. Visible from afar, it serves as a landmark for sailors since the 12th century and watches over the island's largest port.
