A very colourful little place to visit where you will find no end of workshops, transforming the little fishermen cabins into interesting local businesses. Cafés and restaurants abound and there are toilets too.

This is a lovely spot for photography with the most picturesque huts being the original dilapidated fishing huts with all of their fishing paraphernalia propped up outside. Some nice places to eat fresh seafood and a couple of lovely interior design shops, although I wouldn't visit here for shopping reasons as over all in that regard it could be greatly improved with more skilled artisans.

We visited in mid June, when most of Oleron was sleepy, but these cabanes were busy with what seemed to be a couple of coach parties. There was more room to walk around after they all disappeared at about 4.30pm.

Most of the artists at the cabanes were actually making their wares at the brightly coloured huts. Produce varied from glass lamp shades to marquetry to abstract paintings.

We spent just under 2 hours here including some photography.

Nice to walk by this cabanas. Maps navigation is a bit wrong but you walk by it anyway. Looks very nice :). Best to combinate this with a visit to chateaux castle. Its walking distance from each other. They have good restaurants in the centre.

The idea is lovely and the brightly coloured shacks look great however do time your visit carefully. Many of the shacks were unoccupied and of those that were in use, many were closed at the time we visited (mid afternoon on a Monday) It seems that more would be open late morning or from 5pm onwards. There is a limited number of places to eat and drink. If you're keen on shellfish then you're well catered for but at a higher price than elsewhere on the island. There are very few alternatives to seafood although we did find an OK spot after a bit of a search. After a very short visit, we left having not discovered the laid back arts vibe that some of the other reviewers describe. All in all, a damp squib.

Unfortunately it was cloudy this day and the colours were desaturated. The houses are spread in the neighbourhood allowing a little walk. Eventually not that a big deal.

Quite unique area for shopping (real local hand-made products), walking, eating, and taking pictures. All "cabanes" are native Oyster production wooden constructions built along the canal.
Plan to spend at least one hour but, I know you will come back.

Visited while on holiday with the other half. Truly beautiful place. The artists have done an amazing job on these little fishing shacks and it makes for a wonderful walk. Lots of little bars, restaurants and shops, also plenty of local produce and craftwork.

I found this on google and it was not listed in any of the tourist guides. What a find!

We had one of the best days on out holiday here. It is a converted fishing village where each shack has been brightly painted and houses an artist or craftsman. From ceramics to sculpture to wooden objects, leather work, fabrics and clothes - an endless variety of high quality handmade items at reasonable prices.

After a stroll around we selected one of the cafes and enjoyed local beer on a lounge in the afternoon sun set on the pavement.

This would appeal to anyone with a bohemian or artistic streak or if you are interested in original quality handmade art or craft.

We walked around the cabins which included meandering through the surrounding wetlands and admired the sculptures set amid the shimmering grasses.
