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.

Places to visit on holiday to Ile d’Oleron, France

The main town on the island, Le Chateau, is a fantastic centre of farming, fishing and boat building, with a huge range of 17th century architecture giving the town a wonderfully timeless atmosphere.

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. Winter conditions can be harsh, with little shelter from the Atlantic, but the many attractions of Ile d’Oleron’s town, villages and forests are still very popular throughout the year.

Excellent location - just what we wanted

5 of 5
We had a fantastic time, Pascal the owner was so friendly and helpful. The accommodation was just what we wanted - lovely large garden for sunbathing and for the dog. Had all the facilities you need. Description was accurate and the location was excellent - a short walk to the beach. There was a shop 100m away selling fresh croissant, bread, milk etc. a restaurant also close by for good food Fantastic sunsets every night and great beach made this holiday even more special. We would love to go back next year. We would recommend this property.

Welcoming and well-equipped

4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Isolella 1 and meeting our hosts, Christophe & Isabelle who could not have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful. The apartment has been thoughtfully designed and is well-equipped - perfect for the two of us. We made good use of the bicycles and enjoyed our visits to the market. The beach opposite was great, never busy and nice and sheltered, great for swimming when the tide was in and fascinating for beachcombing when it was out. We enjoyed eating out at the restaurants at Port Douhet, the market restaurant and L'Odyssey in the village centre. Everyone was friendly and we wouldn't hesitate to go back
