The region’s popularity with tourists and the ever-growing number of festival-goers can make finding somewhere to stay during this period particularly challenging.
Since 2003, the Film Festival has chosen to tackle this issue by:
- offering students, the unwaged and under-25s accommodation in the form of bungalow-style tents;
- developing a partnership with the La Rochelle Tourist Information Centre.
Accommodation available through the festival
Accommodation in bungalow-style tents at Camping du Soleil
€4 per person per night
Since 2004 the festival has partnered with the CMCAS (staff welfare organisation for those working in the energy sector)
to offer accommodation in the form of bungalow-style tents at Camping du Soleil in Les Minimes. These 4-berth tents come fully equipped and feature two twin bedrooms. The campsite has security guards and is located close to the festival venues (roughly 10 minutes on foot using the shuttle boat service).
