Les Grosses Pierres, the pearl of the island of Oléron
The campsite Les Grosses Pierres in Saint Georges d'Oléron, in the Charente Maritime, is just a stone's throw from the beach of les Bonnes. A member of the Vagues Océanes group, this 5-star establishment is one of the most beautiful outdoor holiday resorts on the Ile d’Oléron island...
A top-of-the-range campsite
Les Grosses Pierres, on the west coast of the island of Oléron, and only 900 metres from a beautiful sandy beach facing the Atlantic, is a high-end campsite, and its resort and leisure facilities live up to its reputation.
This 5-star establishment, laid out in the heart of wooded grounds comprising several hectares, features many camping pitches to accommodate holidaymakers. Although the proximity to the Les Bonnes beach and the dunes running alongside it, explain why some of these plots are covered with sand, the vast majority remain laid to lawn and shaded. Well-equipped, clean and comfortable chalets and mobile homes are located on these.
In the most high-end accommodation range of this outdoor establishment in Saint Georges d'Oléron, there are mobile homes in the “Villa” range, offering holidaymakers many advantages. They have four separate bedrooms and two fully equipped bathrooms. The “Top Presta” range of holiday rentals, spacious and tastefully decorated, are all equipped with a flat-screen TV, dishwasher and air conditioning! These mobile homes are located on plots of 120 m². The "Super Family Top Presta” range is suitable for large families, with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
For an unforgettable holiday
The water park of Les Grosses Pierres campsite is undoubtedly the liveliest place in the grounds. Having a vast heated outdoor swimming pool, heated indoor swimming pool, water slides (including three mega slides: the Space Bowl, Aquatube and Compact Slide) and their landing pool, children’s paddling pool, Jacuzzis, water garden and extensive sunbathing area, there is no doubt that this equipment contributes to making your holiday in Oléron unforgettable!
For those who prefer salt water, seven days a week during the high season a free shuttle bus serves the beach of Les Bonnes, barely 900 metres from the campsite. This shuttle bus also takes guests to La Cotinière and Boyardville and to the different markets of the island.
Although the shuttle offers the possibility to stock up off the campsite, the site nevertheless has its own mini-market, a grocery store for essentials, open in the off-season, and fresh bread service. You can also take advantage of a restaurant, takeaway service and bar, having an area with a giant screen and soundproof entertainment room. It is worth noting that by the bar there is a Wi-Fi area, offering 30 minutes’ free Internet access per day.
Amongst the other campsite facilities, you should be aware there are two multi-sports grounds, a mini-golf course, children’s games room, pétanque court, ping-pong tables, two bouncy castles and play area. There are also many other surprises yet to be discovered on-site!
In Saint Georges d’Oléron
A stay on the Les Grosses Pierres campsite is the opportunity to enjoy the many attractions and advantages of the island of Oléron. Nicknamed the “Lumineuse” (“Illuminated”) due to its micro climate guaranteeing a high amount of sunshine throughout the year, the island takes advantage of this state of affairs to attract tourists on to its fine sandy, sometimes wild, beaches. These are sometimes used by beach clubs, sailing schools or other water sports centres...
However, inland the island also saves a few surprises for the curious who venture on to the many cycle paths and footpaths that cross right through Oléron. 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.
Finally, from the campsite you can easily reach the mainland and the tourist attractions of the Department: La Rochelle, the Zoo de la Palmyre zoo, Fort Boyard fort, the Arsenal de Rochefort (naval base and dockyard) and other attractions...
