Campsite La Tour des Prises ****

General information
Guide price €44.80

Centrally situated in the Ile de Ré island, you will find the friendly camping site La Tour des Prises. Its setting is magnificent: in an old orchard near grapevines and only 600 m from a fine sandy beach. This family camping site attracts a very diverse public, from families with young children and teenagers to young couples and seniors.

The level camping pitches (85-120 m2) have a grass surface and are separated by hedges. The trees provide ample shade. The touring pitches on this well-tended camping site are kept separate from the mobile homes.

Cooling off

The beautiful and heated swimming pool consists of an outdoor pool (160 m2) and a covered swimming pool (270 m2). There is a separate toddler pool for the little ones. The loungers at the swimming pool await you. Prefer the 'largest swimming pool in the vicinity'? After about 600 m along a paved road, you will reach the fine sandy beach Les Prises, on the Atlantic Coast.

Start the day with water aerobics

In summer, entertainment is offered for children. They also enjoy the trampoline and the playground. You can start the day off with water aerobics. You can practice several sports in the area, such as horseback riding, pony rides, beach volleyball and tennis. And the sea is perfect for kitesurfing, jet skiing, stand-up paddle boarding and (catamaran) sailing.

Eating pancakes near the pool

You can order fresh bread daily. The cosy bar with terrace overlooks the swimming pool. In the friendly restaurant you can order pancakes, take-away meals and ice creams. A few times a week the pizza car stops by.

Travelling party: Couple

This site is set within a walled area surrounded by vineyards. The pitches are a good size but can be difficult to access, due to the many large trees. The ground is very sandy. The toilets facilities are unisex. The covered heated pool is a good size with sunloungers. The cycle paths give direct access to the cycle routes of the island. The nearest supermarket is 4 kilometres. The beach is one kilometre and easily accessible on foot. Staff are friendly informative and helpful English. Is spoken credit cards accepted

Travelling party: Couple

We have stayed here many, many times and will return twice in 2019. For us it is the best placed site on the island for access to cycle tracks up and down. Loux and La Couarde are very close and the beautiful beach is very close. It is tight for accessing pitches with larger outfits but rarely impossible with a mover; I wouldn’t recommend for largest motor homes!! Staff are great and do not change year to year. A safe clean site. Love it! Shop doesn’t open until July 1st which might be a frustration for some, although bread can be ordered and delivered to your pitch out of high season!

Travelling party: Couple

Peaceful campsite with direct access onto the many cycle and foot paths from the gate. Lovely covered pool, heated in June and not busy. Fresh bread, if ordered the day before, is delivered direct to your pitch. Pitches are a reasonable size and divided by hedges but access may be tight for larger outfits. Clean shower/toilet blocks which could possibly be overstretched if the site is full.
