Make a holiday rental property or holiday villa in Ile d’Oleron, France your home away from home

The Ile d’Oleron lies in the Atlantic Ocean, just off the coast of the Poitou-Charentes region of France. The island is the second largest of France, after Corsica, and is a hugely popular destination for holiday makers, with many day-trippers and visitors to Ile d’Oleron holiday villas arriving daily. The island is connected to the mainland via a large road bridge, which makes reaching an Ile d’Oleron holiday villa remarkably easy. The Ile d’Oleron is much greener and more scenic than its neighbour, the Ile de Re, ideal for anyone who has a love of nature and the great outdoors.

Things to do in Ile d’Oleron, France

The beautiful sandy beaches of the Ile d’Oleron mean that holiday rental properties are in high demand during the summer months. Many hours can be spent simply lazing on the beach, soaking up the sun and enjoying the relaxing atmosphere. There are plenty of opportunities to sail and windsurf from a holiday villa on the Ile d’Oleron, and surfing also thrives off the Atlantic swells that crash onto the western shore.

The forested interior of the island is carved by rivers and streams, along which oyster and fishing nets are found. These help with the fantastic reputation that the Ile d’Oleron enjoys for its fish and seafood restaurants. Both the Foret des Saumonards and the larger Forest de St Trojan are ideal for walking and cycling.

The huge bird park, Le Marais aux Oiseaux, also draws a large crowd to Ile d’Oleron holiday villas. The park is a magnificent place, providing a rare breeding ground for many species of endangered birds. There are over 300 bird species that call the park home, with plenty of public walkways to help you see some of the rarer species whilst you walk through the park.

That was soon forgotten after a look round the property. The gite itself if spacious, well stocked and in a wonderful location. With two bar restaurants just across the sand dune it's not totally isolated but it's far enough off the beaten track to be very relaxing.

It is on a main road but did not really bother us as was well insulated and living area is at the back. St Denis is a lovely small town with quite large daily market. Although there are beaches in St Denis we preferred the one at les huites which is 3km away on bike tracks. Thank you carbine.

The lounge was big and spacious - enough room for us to spread out on a evening and the beds lovely and comfy. The house had lots of nice little touches and a great big garden for our boys to run around in. We really liked the fact it took just over 5 minutes to walk into the centre of the town but the villa itself was nice and quiet. We also enjoyed getting fresh bread and croissants from the boulangerie round the corner every morning. We can't wait to come back - it was a fabulous holiday!
