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.

The house was welcoming with lovely decor and was clean, fresh and well equipped. The location was great for cycling as adjacent to a cycle path along a road and only a 15 minute ride to lovely beaches. We were mainly cycling while on the Island amd hired bikes and a trailer for our toddler. The village has a nice bakery, supermarket and couple of restaurants. The park nearby was really useful for letting our child have a run around. Great place to stay and we would recommend it.

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!
