During your holidays on a campsite in Charente, visit the Oléron Island in the regionCharente-Maritime

The Ile d'Oleron is the largest island of the Atlantic coast. So, during your camping holiday in the Charente, take the chance to explore this 30 km and 6 km wide island. Like its neighbor, the Ile de Ré, Oléron Island has a rugged charm and outdated. It offers forests, landscapes of marshes and beaches of sand at the foot of the dunes, including four municipalities classified blue flag.

The villages of the island are composed of white houses surrounded by mimosas, oleanders and tamarisks while windmills rise sometimes above the countryside. We particularly appreciated the village of St. Pierre, whose church offers a wide panorama of the entire island of Oleron, but also on the island of Ré and the estuary of the Charente. Cotinière is a lovely harbor from where the trawlers leave fishing.

The specialty of the island of Oleron is obviously its oysters but also its salt. By visiting the "The Port of salt" you include the possibility of discovering a secular activity of Marennes-Oléron, the sea salt.

The island of Oléron is particularly valued for its wildlife and particularly for its fauna and flora. The "Marais aux Oiseaux" you can discover and learn about some of the fauna and flora.

The island of Oléron is a paradise for lovers of beaches suitable for swimming or lazing or for lovers of wildlife. While staying at a campsite in the Charente, then cross the bridge leading to the island to discover its charms.
