Les Huttes, a campsite bursting with charm on the Île d’Oléron
On the Ile d’Oléron, the campsite village Les Huttes welcomes you for a stay with all mod cons, 300 metres from the seaside and indeed a fine sandy beach. A family campsite par excellence, this organisation rated 4-star is a member of the Capfun chain, and entices you to come and spend amazing holidays in Saint-Denis-d’Oléron!
An ideal location 300 metres from the beach
This luxury campsite in Charente Maritime is located at the very heart of a wooded and green site, with the Lachenaud canal running alongside and located barely 300 metres from the Plage des Huttes (Les Huttes beach), from which it takes its name. The site thus enjoys an optimal geographical location, since it is located a stone's throw from former salt marshes, nowadays a habitat for a nature reserve.
The Plage des Huttes is situated on the north-west of the Île d’Oléron. Facing the Atlantic Ocean, this beach proves the most remote from the mainland. Indeed in the northern part of the island, the coast becomes wild and rocky until you reach the famous Chassiron lighthouse. Swimming is supervised by lifeguards in summer and it is one of the most vibrant surfing and kitesurfing spots in Oléron.
Around the campsite, you can find a sailing and surfing school, as well as a summer ranch for superb horse rides along the seashore, or on the paths which are dotted around the island, both inland and over its salt marshes. The centre of the village Saint-Denis-d’Oléron is 2.4 kilometres from Les Huttes. This is an excursion which can be done on foot in less than half an hour!
Lastly, respectively 13 and 24 kilometres from the campsite, are the communes of Saint-Pierre-d’Oléron, the island's main city, and the town Le Château-d’Oléron. The latter's fortress constructed between the 16th and 17th centuries is one of the major tourist sites in the Charente-Maritime department.
A dream aquatic park for families
By staying at Les Huttes, you will have the opportunity to discover one of the most beautiful campsites in Oléron. This open-air hotel indeed has a multitude of benefits which you will love. There are various types of holiday hire with assured comfort and quality equipment awaiting you, such as the mobile homes within the Top Presta range, which are equipped with air conditioning, a dishwasher and a television.
For an even more out of the ordinary stay, you can also book your glamping holidays in one of the “Ecolodges” of this open-air hotel. These take the form of 20 m² wood cabins, resting on piles and can accommodate 2 to 4 people.
On-site, make the most of a multitude of services. There is a restaurant-snack bar-takeaway service open each season from 23rd April through to 30th September. In addition there is a bar and a hot food outlet, where you are able to buy fresh bread and sweet breads and buns, such as brioches, croissants and pains au chocolat. Once a week, during the season, there is a market at the very heart of the campsite. The latter is packed with fresh regional produce, summer clothes, jewellery, and other similar accessories. There is a launderette as well as a bicycle hire service. A ticket office allows you to book your tickets for sea cruises, between the îles de Charente-Maritime and around Fort Boyard. These indeed complete the full range of services offered by the Les Huttes campsite.
Oléron and its treasures
Various activities and entertainments are, moreover, organised by the campsite's team to entertain holidaymakers. Intended for children and adults, these take place both during the day and in the evening. Moreover, there are two mini-clubs which are open in July and August. The Clapou club accommodates those aged 4 to 12 years for five days a week, whilst the Nobodys club allows teenagers aged 13 to 17 to have fun together three times a week.
Regarding leisure facilities, this 4-star Oléron campsite has a beach volleyball court, a pétanque ground, ping-pong tables, a children's play area, as well as an inflatable game. There is also a magnificent entirely heated aquatic park available, equipped with a delightful outdoor swimming pool with a paddling pool for children, an completely new indoor pool and a water slide which is also totally new - indeed it is a Racer triple slide!
During your stay at Les Huttes, you can therefore take advantage of the pleasures of camping, the beach and the seaside, but also go out to discover the must-see treasures of Oléron and the Charente Maritime. Amongst the latter are the fortress of Château-d’Oléron, which we have already mentioned, a visit to the oyster beds in Marennes, the La Palmyre Zoo (an established pine forest zoo) and the old city of La Rochelle, exploring the town of Rochefort, Fort Boyard or Fort Louvois (the latter two being fortifications) and other local must-sees. These are some of the most popular attractions amongst holidaymakers intrigued to see them.
