Camping La Brande: aquagym

General

  • Family-friendly park 300 metres from the sea
  • On Île d'Oléron: 30 minutes to Pointe de Gatseau and 45 to Rochefort
  • Heated pool, waterslide, pétanque, bike hire, bar and restaurant

Landlocked life getting you down? Then plonk yourselves down 300 metres from the sea at Camping La Brande and feel the ocean breeze… This family-friendly park is on the Île d'Oléron, so you won't be short of beaches and coastal vistas here. It is also opposite the Moëze-Oléron Nature Reserve, so you'll spot all manner of migrating birds flitting overhead before setting out over the Atlantic.

While the birds may venture far and wide, you're unlikely to need to make any such epic journeys while you're here: oodles of different landscapes can be explored without ever leaving the île, including the sandy Pointe de Gatseau headland in the south and the grassy marshland that covers the centre of the island.

Back at base, Camping La Brande has plenty of alfresco leisure options, including two heated pools, waterslides, miniature golf, a spa area and sports pitches. The site staff can also sort scuba sessions in the surrounding area for guests who dig undersea dives.

There are oyster farms directly opposite the site and there’s a fish wholesaler next door. Le Bistrot Loco, Camping La Brande's restaurant, has both fresh marine produce and non-seafood dishes on its menu. Fresh bread and pastries are also delivered to the site daily.

Good campsite with nice facilities, would stay again.29/09/2021

  • Electric optional gravel and sand pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Pitches were a lovely size and allowed to pick our own (not sure if that was due to the time of year) but also came with a sun canopy which was ideal as we didn’t have an awning. Bike hire was great, hired e bikes so was able to see a lot of the island.
    Views behind the pitch were were on was lovely, big field and horses.
    The facilities were clean and well maintained, loads of cubicles so never felt crowded.
    Pool was great, especially at this time of year when the weather can be unpredictable.
    Staff were lovely.

    Disliked: 

    Location wasn’t ideal, not in walking distance of any bars or restaurants. Even when we travelled further afield on the island most things are closed at this time of year.

    Disliked: 

    I could not believe how rude the reception staff were when we arrived. I have never encountered this before in France and it really affected my view of the site. Luckily other staff were really friendly but first impressions count and I was really disappointed, particularly for a site that markets itself as 5*

    Nice chilled campsite the facilities were good and clean. Really helpful staff in reception, pool was really nice and the restaurant next door was lovely.
    Great cycling tracks all around the island, we didn't have enough time to explore everything, Citadel was nice area.

    Disliked: 

    Animation was a bit too loud for us, avoid staying too close to the bar, we chose the wrong pitch, however we asked to move to the back of the site and this was no problem at all.
    Lots of mosquitos around, not the campsites fault, just be prepared!

From the manager...

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are glad to know that you enjoyed your stay at La Brande. We just would like to add that mosquitos are not present on the campsite all the time. It happens sometimes during the year on the whole island. See you soon.

    Le camping en lui même, le personnel accueillant, souriant et bienveillant. La piscine est certes pas très grande mais largement suffisante, avec son petit coin Balnéo. Notre emplacement était spacieux et propre. Tout comme les WC qui étaient propres du début à la fin de notre séjour et toujours fourni en papier toilettes. Idem pour les douches qui étaient propre. L'emplacement du camping, le service de Navette juste en face qui permet de visiter l'île simplement … tout, tout était top :)

Directions


Local attractions

Thanks to the D26 road bridge, it's simple to drive over to Île d'Oléron. On the journey, you'll likely spot Fort Louvois out in the sea – visit this 17th-century fort by taking the free boat from Bourcefranc-le-Chapus (15 minutes' drive) or by walking over the causeway at low tide. There are also 140 kilometres of flat and well-maintained cycle trails here, so consider leaving the car behind for a day or two and hiring a bike at reception.

Green-fingered guests may well want to check out some of the flora that thrives in these sunny climes: head to La Boirie botanical gardens (15 minutes) or Compostelle gardens on the mainland (40 minutes) to find out more.

Rochefort (45 minutes) is the nearest big town on the mainland. It's a hub of naval history, with highlights including a historic rope factory and a major naval museum. It's also home to several more niche attractions, like the Rochefort-Martrou transporter bridge and an exhibition about what shopping was like in days gone by (Musée des Commerces d'Autrefois).
