Signol, a luxury campsite on the Île d’Oléron
It is no doubt one of the most beautiful campsites in Oléron! The Signol campsite - yes that is its name - is located in Boyardville, a delightful resort which is dependent upon the commune of Saint Georges d’Oléron and whose name self-evidently derives from the famous Fort Boyard…A member of the Oléla group, this 5-star campsite invites you to spend an unforgettable holiday on the Ile d’Oléron island!
Dream holidays in Boyardville!
Open from April to September, the Signol campsite each year accommodates numerous holidaymakers who always enjoy its benefits. Amongst these, is its location which could not be more idyllic, since hardly 150 metres separates it from leading shops and services in Boyardville. This small fishing village has nowadays become an entirely separate seaside resort, which is hardly ten minutes by road from the town centre of Saint Georges d’Oléron. The nearest beach is accessible on foot and is located 800 metres from the campsite From there, the view of Fort Boyard is breathtaking!
The spot where the Signol campsite is located extends over nearly 8 hectares and accommodates 340 pitches. Wooded throughout, it offers a shady, cool spot and tranquillity to holidaymakers who come to stay there. Moreover such holidaymakers can benefit from a large choice of accommodation on-site since there are also mobile homes, chalets and other holiday rentals which are more or less out-of-the-ordinary; for example caravans but also so-called “Ecolodge” tents resting upon stilts.
Although comfort and quality characterise all of these types of accommodation, the new range of Prestige cottages now brings a touch of additional luxury to this campsite on the island of Oléron, all the more so since each cottage is fitted out with a private whirlpool bath…
Besides this accommodation, there is also a new range of traditional pitches intended to accommodate tents, caravans and campers. In 2018, a new heated bathroom installation with private cubicles and themed areas for children was opened.
Wellness and relaxation by the sea
A sheer temple of wellness, leisure and relaxation, the Signol campsite has numerous facilities and services to meet its residents’ needs. Although 150 metres divide the campsite from the shops in Boyardville, there are already other such shops on-site. It is particularly the case with the grocer's shop, which accommodates within its premises a stand selling fresh bread and sweet breads and buns such such as brioches, croissants and pains au chocolat. However also the catering area with its bar, restaurant and snack bar offering pizzas, chips, paninis and many more other dishes, either to eat-in or takeaway to eat at your pitch.
Amongst the other services offered within this 5-star campsite on Oléron, we might mention access to the Wi-Fi network, bicycle hire but also hire of other facilities: a television, a baby kit, a gas barbecue and other similar equipment.

Outside, there is another heated pool, a slide, a flume with three runs, a paddling pool with other water games, as well as a water garden for the very young, to complete the complex.
To stay in shape whilst on holiday, there is nothing better than a little physical exercise. Although a morning jog on the beach opposite Fort Boyard may be what some yearn for, others do not need to leave the campsite for sports activities.
