Getting to know the Island of Oleron in France

Oléron, the island of Light, one of the most beautiful islands of the Atlantic coast

If the Ile d'Oléron is known for its mild climate and its record annual sunshine, it is also known for the wild and protected aspect of its coasts, fauna and flora.

The residents of the Ile d'Oléron are aware of the exceptional nature of their environment and have taken ecological initiatives, such as the Maison Eco-Paysanne at the Grand-Village or the eco-museum at the Port des Salines.

The beaches are clean and the quality of the water is rated between good and excellent along the entire coastline. You can also stroll through the many national forests of the island, including the largest one on Oléron, the forest of Saint-Trojan.
