Why stay here ...

Peaceful in low season, this well-presented site is located close to dramatic coastlines and shady pine forests on the Ile d’Oléron. You'll receive a warm welcome from the English-speaking staff and the generously-sized pitches are largely sunny and level.

The site livens up in high season, with organised entertainment taking place in the daytime and evenings, and a pool with water slides and a large terrace available for relaxing. The restaurant serves family-friendly dishes, and there are further restaurants in the nearby seaside town of Saint-George-d’Oléron, just 1 mile away.

The island is a haven for cyclists, with many trails to explore. It also has some lovely beaches where you can relax or try water sports. Boat trips can be taken to explore Fort Boyard, the Ile d’Aix and La Rochelle.

Nice site

I liked this site however the toilets are basic. Difficult site to find as some roads were closed. Access around the island when towing was tight at times. Restaurant was great and reasonable price staff are very friendly and very helpful. The beach was fantastic and not too far away. Great area for biking. I would like to return someday. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Good campsite.

Good campsite, helpful and friendly staff willing to give advice as to where to go, day trips etc. Small shop with very limited basic stock. Good retauarant but the menu is very much reduced in the low season which starts on 1st September. We did not need to use the communal showers as we were in a static caravan but they were clean and tidy. Could do with a small welcome pack as people who fly in are restricted by luggage weight to bring any provisions with them. So a small pack for their first night is most welcome. However we rcommend the site.

Not Peaceful

We stayed on this site in high season (August) last summer and it was not peaceful. The bar was very noisy at night and the pitches so close together that we knew every single detail of the conversations around us. On the plus side our daughter loved the swimming pool and play area. The facilities were good. Unfortunately the mosquitoes were rife and despite being covered in repellent we were badly bitten. The island was not as picturesque as we were hoping for, most of it seemed to have a permanent traffic jam. The main road through the island seemed to be a mixture of industrial estate and takeaways. There were side roads but again these were busy, making them difficult to negotiate in a large vehicle. The cycle tracks around the island were good but you also needed to use the roads to get from one track to another and we found that many drivers were not considerate of small children on the road. The beaches were average and, unless you like cycling all day, there was not much else to do. We felt we had seen everything after a couple of days. We had booked and paid for a 3 week stay, but after 5 days we decided to cut our losses and go back to our previous site in the Dordogne. We are normally very positive about the Caravan Club sites and maybe some of the other wonderful locations and sites we have been to have spoilt us, but we felt that we had been mislead with the description of this particular site and the island. A couple of the neighbours that we spoke to had similar views. If you are wanting to experience 'real' France we would not reccomended this site or location.

Friendly Site

A very welcoming site that also hosts Eurocamp and Homair chalets. Receptionist provided all the information and leaflets we needed and helped us choose the pitch we wanted. Staff in restaurant very friendly - good basic food options (amazingly tasty chips!). Bar/restaurant area lacked a bit of atmosphere. Toilets lacked toilet seats and toilet paper (does the site assume its clientele don't bother with such luxuries at home?). Apart from that though, good site in a very nice location (bring your bicycle!)
