Residence des Amareyeurs, with its shared swimming pool, is in a superb location in the south west of the sunny Ile d'Oleron, close to St Georges d'Oleron and a short drive to the charming Chateau d'Oleron with its ancient citadel and colourful oyster catchers huts which have, for the most part, been transformed into artists studios and craft shops.
Accommodation and facilities
This residence of small, semi-detached villas reflects the architectural heritage of the local, traditional fisherman's cottages with red tiled roofs and either whitewashed or brightly painted clapper-board walls, each with their own small garden area. The... combination of a swimming pool on the spot and the proximity to shops, restaurants and the beach, make it a great location for a family holiday.

The residence is in an excellent location within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of St Georges d'Oleron. A short drive takes you to Le Chateau d'Oleron, a charming little town with a wonderful, daily, covered market selling a mouthwatering array of fresh fish, fruit and vegetables and other local produce. On Sunday mornings, people flock from all corners of the island to the weekly market which takes over the main square and is a colourful, lively event.
It is great fun to stroll around the ancient ramparts which border the fishing port and fascinating to linger awhile and watch the oyster men bring in their precious cargo. Many of the old oyster huts have been transformed into artists workshops and craft stores and are a great place to find an interesting gift to take home.
If you take the car, or a bike, you will find a choice of magnificent sandy beaches. On the inland side, they are often flanked by pine forests and quite sheltered, or there are the wide open stretches of the atlantic coast with mile upon mile of fine sand.
