ARS-EN-RE Camp du Soleil

Vendee & Charente

Selected as this is a small, quiet site occupying a unique position midway between the beach and the delightful town of Ars-en-Ré at the far end of the island, classed as "Beau Village de France". It is an ideal spot for those who do not wish to drive, as both beach and town are only 400m away and 100km of cycle tracks criss-cross the island allowing safe access for everybody. Please note that the nearby beach is walking distance but is edged by rocks and is often partially covered with seaweed.
