The advantages of taking a vacation on the Ile de Ré over the Ascension weekend

In 2024, Ascension Thursday is scheduled for May 9, and many people will be taking advantage of the opportunity to take the traditional Ascension Bridge vacation. It’s a chance to take a well-deserved spring break and travel a little after months of cold and rain.

On theIle de Ré, the weather is already fine in May, with mild temperatures and dry conditions. The beaches are not yet crowded, and life goes on quietly. Spending Ascension weekend on the island of Ré lets you unwind and enjoy the sea air, which is of better quality than continental air. A weekend camping holiday on the Ile de Ré has beneficial effects on the body, particularly on the skin and respiratory system, but also on the mind.

In mid-season, it’s possible to take advantage of low camping rates during the Ascension weekend.

Ideal activities and visits on the Ile de Ré during Ascension weekend

Ascension weekend on the Ile de Ré is the perfect time to recharge your batteries. In May, it’s generally not yet warm enough to swim in the ocean. It’s the perfect opportunity to relax by the campsite’s heated pool. It has the advantage of being able to be covered: whatever the weather, we guarantee you’ll be able to swim during your Ascension weekend! And the little ones can enjoy themselves in complete safety in the heated paddling pool.

There’s plenty to do on the beaches of the Ile de Ré, even when the water is still a little chilly: a long walk along the la Conche des Baleines for example, a picnic on the Prises beach just a stone’s throw from the campsite, play in the sand with the kids… But bring your swimsuit anyway, you never know! The Ile de Ré also has beautiful traditional villages like Ars-en-Ré and La Flotte to explore. You can cycle through the island’s hundred or so kilometers of cycle paths, passing through villages, fields and salt marshes. Thanks to the ideal location of the campsite in La-Couarde-Sur-Mer, you’ll never be more than an hour away by bike (20 minutes by car) from discovering the culture and culinary traditions of the Ile de Ré.
