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.

Weather in Ile d’Oleron, France

Ile d’Oleron is the sunniest place on the west coast of France. Blessed with over 2,000 hours of sunshine every year, Ile d’Oleron holiday villas are in high demand during the summer months.

However, the owners arranged for us to stay in a similar property very close by. The alternative property didn't have internet, so we were able to visit the owners home to use their wifi. They were very welcoming and willing to help with anything. We viewed the property and I thought it was larger and better than it looks in the pictures. The owners spoke little English, but we managed fine with our basic French (Google translate is always an option to use in online communication). The location of the property is great, particularly if you have bikes. Cycle paths go in most directions from just by the property. 1 mile to a small town with medium size supermarket, boulangerie and other shops and restaurants. 1.5 miles by bike to the beach, although we preferred the 1 mile walk through the sandy forest paths. Would certainly go back if we wanted to visit that area again. En Francais (j'espère) Nous ne sommes pas restés dans cette propriété en raison d'une fuite d'eau quelques semaines avant notre départ, il fallait trier. Cependant, les propriétaires ont organisé pour nous de rester dans une propriété similaire très proche. La propriété alternative n'avait pas Internet, donc nous avons pu visiter les propriétaires pour utiliser leur wifi. Ils étaient très accueillants et prêts à aider avec n'importe quoi. Nous avons vu la propriété et je pensais qu'elle était plus grande et meilleure que celle des images. Les propriétaires ont parlé peu anglais, mais nous avons bien réussi avec notre français de base (Google translate est toujours une option à utiliser dans la communication en ligne). L'emplacement de la propriété est génial, en particulier si vous avez des vélos. Les chemins de cycle entrent dans la plupart des directions à partir de la propriété. 1.5 km à une petite ville avec un supermarché de taille moyenne, boulangerie et d'autres magasins et restaurants. 2 km en vélo à la plage, même si nous avons préféré la promenade de 1.5 km à travers les chemins de forêt sablonneuse. Nous reviendrons certainement si nous voulions visiter cette région à nouveau
