The Camping les Gros Joncs campsite is in the Charente-Maritime department of western France, in
Saint-Georges-d’Oléron on the Île d’Oléron, sheltered by dunes in the woods of the Atlantic coast.
The small island of Île d’Oléron is linked to the mainland by a bridge. The famous Fort Boyard lies opposite the island, in the middle of the sea. You can enjoy a relaxing holiday in a landscape full of flowers and there is also plenty to do and discover in the area.
There is a beautiful sandy beach close by (400m) from Camping les Gros Joncs and you can surf, sail, canoe, kayak and fish in the area. Back at the campsite there is a brand-new covered swimming pool and an outdoor swimming pool with a toddlers’ pool. In high season, there is also entertainment for children and a kids’-club. For total relaxation, you can enjoy being pampered by one of our beauty specialists. You can enjoy delicious meals in the restaurant and buy fresh bread each morning from the bakery.
In the local area, you can visit a wine growing or oyster farming estate, the fishing channels, Fort Royer in Boyardville or the sailing museum. The authentic harbour towns of Royan and La Rochelle are also worth a visit.
Les Gros Joncs on the Ile d’Oléron makes an ideal base for exploring its unspoilt beaches that stretch out as far as the eye can see. And what would a camping holiday on the Ile d’Oléron be without a visit to the nearby Marennes-Oléron oyster farms? At its southern tip, sample the local culinary delights of the Ile d’Oléron.
The authentic harbour towns of Royan and La Rochelle are also worth a visit but we advise you take the Park & Ride option near the cities.
