Campsite Les Varennes can only be reached via the toll bridge across the water. From the bridge, you can already see the beach of Ile de Ré. The island is known for salt extraction, which you can see in towns such as Loix and Ars-en-Ré. The campsite is located close to the picturesque Le-Bois-Plage-en-Ré, where a market with regional products is held every morning.

Camping as luxurious as you want it

The advantage of Campsite Les Varennes is that it isn’t a large campsite, but it is nevertheless fully equipped. There are 56 camping pitches for tents, caravans, and camper vans. The camping pitches are not delimited and have a surface of approximately 95 m2. During low season, you can take an additional car free of charge.

There is also a wide choice of comfortable mobile homes. You can make it as luxurious as you want, for example with 3 bedrooms, a large sitting area, and a covered terrace. You can also choose additional luxury, for example by taking a privilege package for your mobile home, so you can enjoy sun beds and a dishwasher during your camping holiday.

This site is well working, have a good location, and is a good base to enjoy the island. Bring or hire bikes is an excellent way to get around. Some mobile kitchens visit the camp in high season, but the island have other better options for eating out. Camping prices are high.

This campsite is situated in the region of outstanding ecological interest which is great for the environment. However it houses a very dangerous caterpillar which inhabit the pine trees above the pitches. We stayed there and a caterpillar 'purse' dropped onto our skylight which shed poisonous hairs over our entire campervan. We did not realise it until it was too late when our family displayed symptoms of intense infection from these hairs which resulted in a whole body rash similar to shingles. 4 months later we still have the symptoms and the campsite refused to recognise any fault claiming the little signs in the office were enough to warn people of the dangers ...
