Palmeraie Villa 8 - ile d'Oleron island
La Bree-les-Bains, Poitou-Charentes, France
Additional Location Information
St Georges d'Oleron is the largest municipality on the island (4600 hectares), stretching its full width and with two coastlines on the east and western shores, flanked by 15km of fine sandy beaches (the most reputed being Plaisance, Gautrelle and Sables VIgnier). It has two sailing ports (le Douhet et Boyardville), and the little town of St Georges Cheray, which was originally built around a roman church dating back to the 11th century and the 19th century market hall which form the heart of the resort.
Ile d’Oleron is surrounded by beautiful sandy beaches, with some rocky areas which are ideal for fishing. Footpaths and cycle or horse riding tracks cut through the forest and ancient salt marshes, which are without doubt the most picturesque countryside on the island, to link Saint Georges with the port of Boyardville (8km away).
Within only a few kilometres, you can find bicycle and scooter hire, jet-ski and water-skiing, scuba diving, horseriding, sailing schools, windsurfing, sea-kayaks, micro-lite flights, Cheray tennis club, mini-golf and a night club at Port de Douhet (3.5km away).
There is a thalassotherapy spa and beauty centre at Saint Trojan, a traditional fishing port and fish auction at la Cotiniere. At Saint Pierre d’Oleron, there is a public 9-hole golf course and 6 hole practice course as well as a bird and animal parc. As you may expect on an island, there are many opportunities for all manner of boat trips from sailing and catamarin trips to motor boat or even tall ships outings. There are excursions to Fort Boyard, the nearby, tiny, Ile d’Aix or La Rochelle and visits to the oyster farmers and Pineau producers.
