View Full Version : Marennes Plage

Just got back from 2 weeks on the west coast. We stopped one night at the side of the road at Marennes Plage, near the bridge to get to Ile d'Oleron. There is an official Aire but it costs and we're from Yorkshire so free camping is our mantra. There were about 12 vans parked with us and we had fab views across to the island and the other side of the estuary and the sunset was gorgeous. No problems, although, being next to the road, maybe not the best place if you like a lie-in! Picnic benches so no need to get a table out. Also there is a man made 'lake' and beach with showers, so we took our shampoo etc along to save a bit of the liquid gold.Just a really nice place. One of the best bits was that the public loos are cleaned first thing in the morning and actually smelt lovely!

PS sorry I put the photo symbol in but my pics are too big! You'll just have to trust me...
