Campsite La Grainetière ****

General information

Campsite La Grainetière is located on the popular French island of Île de Ré. Peace and quiet are central at this campsite but there is also room for entertainment. In the summer months, various theme evenings are organised. At 1½ kilometres from the campsite you will find La Flotte, one of the island’s oldest villages. Walk along the harbour, find a seat at an outdoor café or wander over the market. At the campsite, Isabelle, Eric and Fanny and their team will welcome you in a forested environment. The many spacious and demarcated camping pitches can be found amid the pine trees and oak trees and they are all equipped with electricity and water supply and discharge. The campsite offers various amenities to make camping as pleasurable as possible. For example, you can hire a fridge or barbecue.

Swimming at the campsite or in the sea

The campsite has a heated and covered swimming pool with a retractable roof which can be opened when the outdoor temperature permits. The pool has a toddler pool with fun fountains and there is a separate hot tub under the palm trees. La Flotte beach is approximately 1½ kilometres away.

Entertainment, but above all, peace and quiet

At Campsite La Granetière, peace and quiet are central, and that is why entertainment is only provided in the months of July and August. Mussel, paella and pancake evenings are organised and on Sundays there are concerts at the end of the afternoon by the snack bar’s covered patio. Because peace and quiet are important at this campsite, the activities never go on late in the evening.

We arrived on the Thursday before Easter and had no problems booking in. We weren\'t sure howlong we wanted to stay, but that was no problem. They were going to be busy too, as it turned out.
The site is well planned, with reasonable sized pitches, amongst the pine trees, although some pitches are a bit close to their neighbours. The site is conveniently close to the town of La Flotte, which is about 30 mins walk away, or 10 mins by bike - take your lock and chain, as you need to park your bike when you get there. You can get everything you need in La Flotte. It\'s also well sited for cycling round the island.
The site has a bar, which was open in April, and a regular and reasonably-priced takeaway service.
The washroom facilities are very modern. They are all unisex, but have separate wash and shower cubicles. They even have combined wash cabin with sink and shower. The shower block is heated and has music playing.

Another great find, this is a friendly campsite in a convenient location with good facilities and a lovely hot swimming pool. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, and clearly this site is well established. Handy for bike rides and peaceful at all times, it was a a pleasant and enjoyable stay.

We arrived at this site as our first choice on the Isle de Re. We were somewhat dismayed to find the reception closed from 12:30 until 14:00 and no way to contact anyone. The site facilites however (pool, shop etc) looked very clean and pleasant. We booked in and went to look for a pitch. There are loads of statics here and the touring pitches are squeezed in between. The layout was very random and many pitched are obstructed by trees. We could not find a pitch that we liked the look of (there wasn\'t a huge choice) and so we left. The girl on reception never even asked why we didn\'t stay. If you like being under and amongst trees, in a randomly laid out site with other campers on top of you, this is the site for you!

A great site very well situated close to La Flotte and St Martin de Re well served by good cycle tracks. The site had a wonderful swimming pool, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the snack bar provided tasty food at a reasonable price. I would not hesitate to recomend this site!!

Excellent site. Short walk into village. Close to supermarkets. Great pool for young children. Clean toilet facilities. Helpful friendly staff. The nearby villages and beaches were great! Definitely returning there - with or without grand-children!

Wonderful friendly owners, great location within walking distance of La Flotte. Revamped pool area is lovely, snacks and meals available. Great cycling for the whole of the Ile de Re.

Very nice campsite in good location - walking distance to La Flotte and easy cycle ride to other nearby towns. Our pitch was semi shaded. There is a busy road outside the campsite but we didn't find it noisy and you can pick up the cycle paths directly opposite the campsite. Good for families with small children.

There are positives and negatives to this site.
Positive - Great location near the town of La Flotte, only 1,5 km away. Lovely new swimming pool area and dressing rooms. Washing up areas neat and tidy with warm water. Friendly helpful staff. Fantastic location if you want to cycle around the island. Proper toilets as we have in the UK and they were kept clean. A special area to wash and prepare fish and shellfish outside the toilets.
Negatives - No grass on pitches, so looks unattractive and there is always dirt being carried in. Under pine trees that drop sap and huge cones onto your vehicle van. Noisy road right next to site. Mixed toilets for gents and ladies with urinals in plain view!! This is not nice! Even more awful was that the chemical toilet disposal is in one of the toilet cubicles, creating awful smells if someone empties a casette while you are using the loo. The bins are a fair walk away as they are located at the site entrance. Lighting not good on site roadways.

The pitches are marked by small white stones. Unfortunately some campers do not ahdere to the lines, if you have a problem tell the owner and he will sort it out. The campsite is excellent and the pool deserves a mark of 11, it is absolutely suberb. The take-away food is extremely good value. The owners work extremely hard to make sure everything is A1. La Flotte is a pleasant 15 minutes stroll away.
