This makes Oléron a lovely place to walk and enjoy nature, whether it be a mushroom picking jaunt in the autumn, or simply a summer stroll through the pine forests and along the beautiful beaches. Since oyster farming is traditionally the islands largest economy, there are various tourist attractions centred around this, like trips out on to the east coast marshes at low tide and, of course oyster detestation restaurants. The famous oyster marshes are recognisable throughout the island and are surrounded by colourful huts, working and artisan, which bring artists and seafood lovers from all over the place.

Eating out: Keeping in this style you will find that the whole island is full of amazing seafood restaurants and bars to help you while away the activities of your day. You can find all types of restaurant on the island; from basic little oyster huts that serve the simplest, most delicious oysters you’ve ever tasted, fresh from the marshes, to Italian, Thai, organic vegetarian Indian to high class gastronomic French cuisine. Wherever you go you will usually find a good menu and plenty of fresh fish! There is a list of recommended local restaurants in the apartment.

Le Chateau- Things to do: There is a lovely planted mini golf course as well as public petang or ‘french boules’ pitches in the town. Also on a Sunday morning in Le Chateau you will find all the delights of the biggest market on the island, bringing people from all the localities all year round. Le Chateau also boasts a lovely newly renovated port and marina, full of restaurants and artisans huts offering everything from langoustines, to hand made home furnishings and beautiful jewellery. Next to the port is the historic Citadel, an original Vauban fortress dating back to the 17th century, but now more commonly used to host jazz festivals, art exhibitions or fireworks displays. There is also a nice beach in the town with a sea water swimming pool during the summer to enable swimming at low tide and safe swimming for the little ones. Although the east coast beaches aren’t quite as typically beautiful as the west coast ones, they are certainly quaint and the sea is always warmer here than the Atlantic coast.

Great location, perfect for a family of 4 with all the amenities you need. A short drive to beaches, easy walk to market, shops and cafes. Outdoor eating area is great and garden was well used. Owners were very friendly and helpful giving us lots of tips about where to visit and things to do. Would recommend this property without hesitation.

The property is ideally situated for the supermarket and the town. The area around the house is a very quiet residential area. There are several nice restaurants in the town. There are some interesting and pretty villages to visit, nice beaches. Our host was helpful and friendly but never intrusive. We had a really lovely relaxing holiday there.

Sarah, Jean Yves and Iyla were the perfect hosts. Weather changeable but were still unable to leave the island to go sightseeing on the mainland, because the island is so lovely, even when its not basking in blazing sunshine. Beaches brilliant,markets wonderful and the pace of life just right.The apartment was great, Nia a really friendly dog and she was great company. have already booked next year. Bob and Celia Rose

We spent a fantastic week in Le Chateau. The apartment was lovely...comfortable, well equipped and an easy walk into the town centre.
Sarah and Jean-Yves were great hosts and made us feel very welcome.
Our girls (13 and 11) enjoyed their surf lesson with Jean Yves and catching the waves on their body boards on the west coast. Le Chateau was beautiful and an excellent base to explore the island. Thank you for a great holiday!

An excellent holiday. The apartment was very comfortable and the garden sunny and private. Just the place if you want a quiet and relaxing break. Sarah and Yves were great, never intrusive, always helpful. We intended to go visiting La Rochelle, Saintes and other sites on the mainland, but the weather was so great, the beaches empty and the sea warm, that we never left the island. Local markets were really good; fantastic seafood and Pineau. I would recommend at least a week there to anyone
