The peaceful family campsite Les Varennes on the French island Ile de Ré is a wonderful place no matter your age. The large outside pool provides the necessary cooling on warm summer days and you can easily walk to the beach. You can rent bikes at the front desk to explore the island. Would you like something more comfortable during your camping holiday? Then rent a mobile home on the campsite.
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.

We went there off peak and it’s a perfect location for everything e.g walking,cycling,public transport ,beach or to just relax on the site itself. A wonderful bus service to and from La Rochelle.
Great site, especially in low season with CC Discount. Toilets old but clean, no seats though. No kid sink. Helpful freindly multi language staff. Pool indoor and outdoor with small baby area, no slides. Shady sandy pitch with plenty of room. Market onsite with limited articles but amekt place daily and Carrefour about 15min walk. Beach with less stones than elsewhere.
We loved this site. staff really helpful, wonderful beach 20 mins walk, lovely market/village 15 mins walk. great spot to cycle too. pool lovely. We're going again this year !!
Another that became a fave very quickly. Really friendly, in middle of trees, close to beach and lovely little village. Fantastic, tho need to book beforehand as gets very very busy.
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.
