Camping La Grainetiere, La Flotte, Île de Ré, Poitou-Charentes, Charente-Maritime

Good things:

  • swimming pool complex – outdoors but can be covered when cool, beautifully clean, and safe enough to let little Lola run around in without worry
  • restaurant, bar & shop, and speciality cuisine nights (the mussels were excellent)
  • lovely big pitches under pine trees
  • short bike ride to the lovely port of La Flotte
  • great facilities (washing machines, etc.)

Bad things:

  • everywhere else was a long cycle ride away, and despite some good tracks there were some fast roads to deal with too
  • I can imagine it would be hard to get a pitch during peak season
  • not exactly the real France that we know and love… a bit too much like another country – maybe a dutch version of France?!
  • not much else
