We have visited the island of Oleron for 17 years now and camped at Le Sous Bois for 4 years on seven different occasions.
Camping Le Sous Bois is a very unspoilt French site the size of which enables you to experience the French ambiance and natural environment. It is situated with the beach, bakery, restaurant and bar across the road and a gentle 15 minute stroll to many other restaurants around the picturesque port of La Cotiniere. You can also get on your bikes and cycle on the many cycle routes.
The owners of the site Sylvie (her dog Atois) and Jean Francois always take time out to make sure your stay is both enjoyable and relaxing.
It is so lovely to walk around a camp site where everyone is so friendly and say bonjour.
The facilities whilst not being new are well maintained and clean. The pitches are of a good size for both touring caravans and tents with modern 10amp electricity. There is a new multi-sport court, petangue and play area at the rear of the site for the active and young to enjoy.
There is entertainment during the main season in a Marquis which is very French (I love it) but teen ages may not agree. However there is a free bus that will take them to the disco in the nearby towns and returning them in the early hours of the morning.
A free bus that passes the site will take you to the many beautiful beaches and towns on the unspoilt island.
