The Airotel d’Oléron campsite in Château d’Oléron in the Poitou-Charentes region is at the heart of major tourist centre.
Château d’Oléron is the second biggest town on the island in terms of population. This oyster-farming capital has multiple facets and a great wealth of heritage and history to explore. The Château d’Oléron citadel is a site not to be missed on the island. The oyster-farming port is a great place for a relaxing walk. Many former cabins have now been restored and are today used as workshops where artists exhibit their work.
Oyster-farming cabins in Château d'Oléron
Among the villages, Ors is worth a visit for its channel and multi-coloured oyster-farming cabins. In La Chevalerie, as you stroll along the streets, you will see houses in the most surprising architectural styles. La Gaconnière, Petit and Grand Gibou and La Renisière are other villages that well deserve a visit.
Oléron also has beautiful sandy beaches bordered by pine forests. In Chassiron, in the north of the island, you can see limestone cliffs overlooking the Atlantic, while on the west coast, there are sandy beaches with a few rocks – ideal sites to look for shellfish.
On foot or by bike, you can enjoy a wide variety of landscapes on the island: large national forests, marshland areas for bird-watching, and agricultural land where wine grapes and cereals are grown.
Nature-lovers should head for Dolus (15 minutes from the Airotel). The Marais aux Oiseaux (Bird Marshes) attract a large number of visitors. There are also oyster-farming sites and the little port of La Baudissière, where the “sea farmers’” multi-coloured cabins provide the site’s typical charm.
Another town in the region not to be missed is La Rochelle. Only one hour from the campsite, it is a town rich in charm to discover. St Sauveur Church, the Tour de la Chaine, St Louis Cathedral, the Prée fort, the House of Henri II… are all well worth a visit.
