Ever been to the island of Oléron? If not, we reckon you should: this Poitou-Charentes place is renowned for its long beaches, and we reckon all sorts will have a fine sandy time here.
And less than a kilometre from the nearest beach is Camping Les Grosses Pierres, five kilometres from the island's city centre and in a scenic setting with handsome surrounds.
It has plenty to do on site for guests: a waterpark with seasonal heated outdoor swimming pool, a heated indoor swimming pool, a waterslide, a hot tub and sun chairs; a kids' club and a teen club, and a good pick of different sports entertainment run by the staff. Bike hire is available on site too.
The site also has a bar, restaurant, a snack area, a grocery shop, a wellness centre and a launderette. Free wifi is available at the bar.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Oléron is an utterly fab place to stay on a French hol, and is the second biggest island of Metropolitan France, after Corsica, so you'll find heaps to do whatever way your tastes lie. Hire a bike from the Camping Les Grosses Pierres team to pedal around the 110 or so kilometres of peaceful bike paths; go surfing or horse riding; sample oysters at the seafood restaurants, buy freshly landed fish at the famed village of La Cotiniere...
Within easy reach for day trips are La Rochelle and its aquarium, the Luna Park theme park, the large waterpark at Iléo, and La Palmyre Zoo in Royan, a green pine forest with big cats, apes, and penguins.
You could also visit the island of Aix, take a boat tour around famed Fort Boyard, potter around the seventeenth century fort (and now an oyster museum) of Fort Louvois, or make it your mission to get to Oléron's city and its many castles.
