'Camper's corner' shop for any essentials you've forgotten and tourist information in reception. Activities for children throughout school holidays.
ActivitiesCamping on an island? Then it's the beaches you'll be visiting. Montamer and La Salee are the best for swimming when the tide's in and Grenettes is the one for surfers (you can hire boards right by the waterfront). At Sainte-Marie-de-Ré, Notre Dame beach is good for shellfish gathering. Windsurfing, kayaking and catamaran sailing are all popular here too, while, on land, bikes are the best way to get around with a good network of family-friendly cycle trails across the island (bikes are available to hire from the campsite). There are also public tennis courts 1km from Huttopia Chardons Bleus. For something less active, discover the Vauban fortifications – a recognised UNESCO world heritage site – visit the ramparts of Saint-Martin-de-Ré, the ruins of Abbey Châteliers, the Fort de la Prée and the steeple of Ars-en-Ré. A visit to Phare de la Baleine, the main lighthouse that is synonymous with Île de Ré, is also a must.
Food & DrinkThe restaurant on-site serves excellent homemade pizzas, along with a host of other snacks and drinks best enjoyed out on the terrace. It's only open over the May public holidays and through July and August. There's also fresh bread delivery each morning (make sure you order the evening before). A whole range of delicious produce can be found among the island’s market stalls, with markets held every morning at la Flotte, Rivedoux and Sainte-Marie throughout the year. Oysters, sea salt, Pineau, Cognac and the island's delicious potatoes are the most local goods of choice.

From La Rochelle, follow signs for Île de Ré. When you reach the island, take the South road (Sud) signposted at the roundabout just outside Rivedoux, then take the D201 and, after 4km, the D103 towards Clemorinant. The campsite is on your left (clearly signposted) after 650m. The nearest train station is La Rochelle SNCF station 20km away. La Rochelle also has an international airport.
