Swimming pool

General

  • Family-friendly lle de Ré site two minutes' walk from the beach
  • Two pools, kids' club, restaurant and shop
  • A 10-minute drive to Saint-Martin-de-Ré and 30 minutes to La Rochelle

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...

Please note

The site only allows dogs up to 15kg.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

    Great location - Island is fab for cycling. Toilets were clean.

    Disliked: 

    Booked a large, grassy pitch, but were provided with a small pitch that was covered in rubble and broken tiles. Not ideal for pitching tents.

    Very little

    Disliked: 

    Poorly kept pitches. Booked grass site - we were told when we arrived “none at all on site”. There were no chemical toilet facilities despite saying there were. Pictures on pitch up.com need to be updated!!. Staff pleasant but very little English. We moved after 1 night, to a lovely well kept site, despite the fact we had paid for 3 nights. No WiFi - were told none on island but that wasn’t the case!! Would not recommend Les Grenettes or go back again. Too many better sites on a lovely island.

    The pool area

    Disliked: 

    The dirty soggy ground. Rocks on the camping pitch. Bar closed most of the time. Some sanitary facilities were clean, other not so much.
    The children’s inflatable play eqipment was wet after the rain and was not wiped down during the remainder of our stay rendering it unusable.
    The beach that is mentioned in the location description is also not very nice

    Claire who came to our rescue when our car battery was dead.

    Disliked: 

    Pitch smelt of urine when we arrived and water tap on pitch didn’t work. Sanitary block nearby had one toilet one shower and one hand basin for all users in area. Totally inadequate. Noisy neighbours playing music and drinking late into the early morning hours. No bins to locate anywhere despite following signs. Restaurant and bar that closed at 9pm. All together very disappointing.

    The island

    Disliked: 

    Deep dirty sandy pitches (we couldn’t get our car on one and our pegs wouldn’t stay in the ground, so we had to move) , no soap or toilet roll, cold showers, very limited sun beds round the pool, we had to wait about an hour each day to get one. No washing up facilities. No clean signs that you aren’t aloud to bbq. My parents came in a caravan and there was no waste disposal point! They were told to empty their toilet down one of the public toilets!

    Clean and welcoming site with great facilities. We travelled in our camper van from England so the site was perfect. Lovely pool and fabulous restaurant that we ate in twice. The food was excellent. We hired bikes and cycled around the island, loving every minute.

    Disliked: 

    There weren't any toilet seats and you needed your own toilet roll (maybe just a French thing!)

Directions


Local attractions

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.
