It's 30 years since Île de Ré was connected to France by bridge, but you’d barely know it: it seems to occupy its own time and space, an Atlantic colony of dunes and pines and white villages, scented by oyster beds and poppy fields… The place might attract fast Parisians and famed film stars, but the pace is slow and it’s such a superb spot for cycling that many don’t bother with their cars: this is a stellar French spot for stellar French hols.
Contemplate the lot, and your itinerary in it, from your sun lounger at Camping les Grenettes. The beach is a couple of minutes’ walk away and if that's too strenuous, you can stretch out by the heated pools on site (while the kids are entertained at the playground and the daily activities in summer).
A shop and bakery are on site for your convenience too, and after a hard day watching clouds scud across the sky, you can then totter a few steps to the restaurant and bar.
Once you’re ready (no rush), hire bikes and pedal round the isle: picnic on the dunes, hunt for crabs and see if you can spot any famous faces doing the same thing…

You’re never far from anywhere on Ile de Ré; main town Saint-Martin is 10 minutes by car. This walled citadel of colourful buildings has forts to explore (part of a UNESCO Heritage site), markets to rummage and plentiful spots for lazy lunching. Get your bearings by ascending the bell tower for views of the whole island and afterwards (or before, depending on laziness) take the wildlife trail around the town.
The beach by the site is popular with families and surfers, but it's worth visiting Sainte-Marie (10 minutes), an ancient and vineyard-fringed village whose beach is quieter and wilder, and a cracking spot for crab hunters and shell seekers. If it’s thrills you’re seeking, try kitesurfing at Rivedoux (also 10 minutes).
An hour away, the Marais Poitevin is a protected marsh area of the Poitou-Charente region, where you can walk, bike or paddle your way around its myriad of creeks to spot waders, otters, eel and herons. The old port of La Rochelle (30 minutes) makes a splendid maritime-themed excursion you can do without getting wet… wander the harbour and say hi to the fish in the aquarium.
For a contrast, Vertigo Parc has zipwires, ropes and treetop thrills for landlubbers.
