Additional Location Information

To the south of Ile de Re and facing Rochefort, Ile d'Oleron is the largest of France's Atlantic coastal islands. Accessible by a toll-free road bridge, it enjoys its own, exceptionally sunny micro-climate and a quality of light that has attracted many an artist over the years. The beaches are a delight with a wide range of sporting activities.
There is plenty to do and see in and around St Georges d?Oleron. The village itself has an 11th century church which is worth a visit and on the beach of Sables Vignier is the islands last remaining fish lock. There is an abundance of birdlife and and the ?oyster route? gives an insight into the island?s heritage.
In high season,there are boat trips to nearby Ile d?Aix (where Napoleon was once imprisoned) and to Fort Boyard as well as over the traditional route (used before the bridge was constructed) to La Tremblade.
The beaches are delightful and the island's natural situation gives you a choice of calm, sheltered beaches on the mainland-facing coast and more open stretches of fine sand with waves on the Atlantic side.
The bustling little fishing port of Le Chateau, just close to the bridge, is well worth a visit, especially on Market day and you can while away an hour or so browsing the charming artists' studios and shops which have taken over many of the old oyster-men's huts along the quayside.
A little further afield on the mainland, La Palmyre zoo makes a popular family outing and the old ports of La Rochelle and Rochefort are well worth a visit
