ST GEORGES D’OLERON Le Suroit

Vendee & Charente

Selected because of its location on the west coast of the Ile d'Oléron, the largest island off the French Atlantic coast. The campsite has direct access to the beach and is protected by fabulous sand dunes. It is an area popular for windsurfing, sea kayaking and kite surfing. The campsite has a pretty entrance and has been owned and run by the same family for the last 50 years, so there is a lovely friendly ambience. It has recently acquired its fourth star. Although one of the best sites on the island, the beach can at times be covered in seaweed when it is less suitable for swimming. The beaches to the south of the island are usually unaffected.
