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.

Sited in woodland this site is a ten minute cycle ride from La Flotte. The pitches are randomly positioned on sandy soil. Water and EHU to each pitch. The bar/restaurant serves drinks and snacks. The shop serves bread all day. The reception staff are friendly helpful and very informative. Wifi is free throughout the site. The covered heated pool and jacuzzi has a sunlounging area adjoining.
Well located site with friendly staff, great facilities and large pitches in a pine wood.
Exellent site second time now,
I’ll de Rae lovely area plenty to do
Quite disappointing. We were a retired couple travelling in a campervan (<6 meters) revisiting La Flotte after 20 years. The site had undoubtedly the best toilets and washing facilities we experienced on our month-long trip as well as excellent wifi signal. However, the pitches were small and very cramped. We moved on after one night.
Superb site. New heated shower block was kept immaculately clean by the staff. The swimming pool was around 30°C and was opened up on the really hot days. Comfortable walk to both La Flotte and St Martin to go to restaurants, and good cycle only tracks throughout the island.
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!
