No night club, no bar, no karaoke? Holiday heaven! If you want glamping and pampering, or English menus in the restaurants, then this unspoilt part of France is not for you. Try the Med instead. This is a small, busy but quiet, family run site, on what was once sand dunes. This means there won't be much grass, so don't... More

Reading the review by Maggie758 I took the criticism almost personally! We have been to La Tour des Prises so many times, and have just booked again; we are saddened to think that anyone should be disappointed by it. We have been camping in France for more than 30years with tent, caravan and now motorhome and stayed at every possible... More

Just returned from a week's stay here. Mobile home looked new and was very clean. Only things missing which we have had when staying in mobile homes on other campsites in France, were a toaster and oven, but you can get by without! Campsite was clean, nicely laid out and pitch size was fine. Pizza takeaway van comes to the... More

Reading some of the reviews I think it all depends on what you are staying in, if its a 6 - 8 berth or larger motorhome then yes the pitches are too small I'd say but if you are in a small T4 with outhouse awning its perfectly adequate so we didn't have a problem, we had pitch R71 just... More

I'm surprised by some of the recent reviews. We stayed in one of the mobile homes which was really well equipped. The campsite is quiet and simple, the pool area lovely - perfectly adequate for the size of site, and the shop well stocked at usual site prices. If you want entertainment, clowns, kids clubs, sky TV, constant internet access... More

We have camped all over Europe, particularly in in France, for over 20 years and this is without doubt the finest campsite we have ever visited. This is an authentic French campsite located in the heart of the Island so has good access to all of the beautiful villages of Ile de Re, and more importantly the bike paths are... More

OK, so this site is not for people who want manicured lawns, acres of camping space, wall-to-wall facilities and entertainment, but it's got all the basics and is in a central location on the island so you can cycle anywhere you like. It's peaceful, has direct access to cycle routes, is a 5 min bike ride from a beautiful beach,... More

The previous review, written by Andy N, is absolutely spot-on! Most of the piches were bare earth, covered with last autumn's leaves which kept blowing-in the tent. The snack-bar facility is a joke - a few tables, outside a poorly-stocked shop, that you can sit down at, to drink from a can just purchased inside! The pizzeria must be the... More

Well - don't know where to start here. Very tired site with small pitches, even smaller roads. Not ideal for anything but tents. The hedges were overgrown & the pitches were scruffy. A pizza van appeared in the evening but other than that the only food & drink available were from the shop. WiFi was poor & only available around... More

Spent a great week camping at this family friendly camp site. Staff are warm, welcoming and great with English. Many beaches within cycling/driving distance. Clean campground, great pool, great showers, shop, free wifi, laundry facilities, games room, bike rental. Perfectly placed on the island to access various sites. Would highly recommend and will camp here again. Spoke to a number... More
