Camping La Garenne: Pitches surrounded by trees

General

  • Family-friendly site opposite the beach in Port-des-Barques
  • Within an hour's drive of Oléron island, Royan and La Rochelle
  • Swimming pool, restaurant and summer activities for all ages

What a cracking coastal spot this is – if you’re the sort that seeks out lots of seaside days on hols you’ve found a great base at Camping La Garenne. The jaunt to the nearest beach from this Port-des-Barques site involves simply nipping across the road, and you’ll also be within easy reach of lots more Charente-Maritime faves, including Royan, La Rochelle and the bike-friendly Oléron island.

Pile on top of that coastal hikes, watersports, boat trips, museums, an aquarium and a zoo (and more beaches, bien sûr) and you’ll note that it’s a wise move to plump for as lengthy a stay as poss at this place.

And it’s an equally wise move to factor in a bit of flopping-out time between your days out (all those fun times can get terribly tiring…) Poolside is probably the place to be for that – there are plenty of loungers gathered on the sun terrace for sunbathing between swims, and supervising the small sorts as they splash in the paddling pool.

Pétanque courts and a playground take care of times when you’d rather stay dry, and there’s a whole heap of activities to pick from in summer: crafts, sports and outings cater for kids, teens and grownups through the day, while the evenings are filled with quizzes, movies and showing off your grooviest dad dancing moves at the disco.

Scheduling a bit of time for eats is a fine plan too – settle in for meals at the site’s restaurant, wander up to the village centre in 15 minutes for restaurants and bakeries or sort supplies at the supermarket 10 minutes’ drive away in Soubise.

In need of serious updating of hygiene facilities, trees need pruning03/07/2022

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Location for exploring the Ille de Madame was excellent and the close proximity to the beach

    Disliked: 

    Toilet block was awful, no toilet seats, toilet paper or sinks to wash hands. Most of the lights didn’t work either and there were no windows. Definitely needs the facilities updating.
    Trees not pruned making it difficult to get to and park on your pitch.

Directions


Local attractions

If you’ve brought bikes, take them over to Oléron island – and if you haven’t, hire them on site and take them to Oléron island. There’s a fab network of cycle paths over here, linking villages, beaches and salt marshes, and they’re generally mercifully flat and quiet. It’ll take around 45 minutes to drive there; for an island escape closer to home, wander over to L’Isle Madame in half an hour.

Sealife enthusiasts have much more to see than just beaches around here: La Corderie Royale in Rochefort (25 minutes’ drive) now houses the International Centre of the Sea, and you can board the old boat Hermione for a taste of life at sea.

Should your interests lie more in life beneath the waves, take the 45-minute drive to the aquarium in La Rochelle, where more than 12,000 aquatic animals dwell in the tanks. To see landlubbing creatures instead, set off for a similar length of journey south to Zoo de la Palmyre, set across a splendid 18 hectares of pine forest.
