Nicknamed "la Lumineuse" due to the micro climate guaranteeing a high rate of sunshine throughout the year, this island takes advantage of this fact to attract tourists on its fine sandy, sometimes wild, beaches. These are occupied by beach clubs, sailing schools or other water sports centres...
But the inland of the island also reserves a few surprises to the curious who venture on the many cycle paths and pedestrian paths that cross Oléron from side to side. There's nothing better than a walking, cycling or horse riding tour to discover all the contours of the island and to admire all its beauty.
Although the reputation of Oléron derives largely from its oysters and its salt marshes, this island in front of the Charente Maritime and connected to the mainland by a bridge, boasts above all an important historical heritage, and the residents of the campsite Les Grosses Pierres will not miss the chance to visit these sites. The Citadel of Château d'Oléron and the adjoining walled city is definitely the best example of this.
