Welcome to Carole & Virgile Charié
Come and explore this world of sea and oysters.
A rarity in this land of Marennes-Oléron oysters, La Cailletière is set in an area of oak woodland. A great starting point for walks around the island, it is also ideally located for enjoying its vast sandy beaches, exploring its local fish markets and, of course, sampling its famous oysters – the sea in all its glory! And don’t forget a trip to the bustling port of La Cotinière and a visit to the Chassiron lighthouse or the citadel ramparts at the Château d’Oléron.

A boat trip out to the Ile d’Aix (with a chance to see Fort Boyard from the sea) followed by a tour of the island on foot.
Take a cycle tour from the campsite around the north of the island (60km round trip) including a visit to the Chassiron lighthouse.
The medieval town of Brouage (15km) offers a glimpse of the town as it would have been in its heyday, complete with paved streets and wrought ironwork shop signs.
Zoo de la Palmyre | Sheltered beneath an oak wood on the Ile d’Oléron you’ll find La Cailletière, a campsite surrounded by long, sandy beaches and close to the Zoo de la Palmyre. Visit the zoo and discover the hundreds of different animal species it houses and round off your trip with a plate of the delicious oysters for which this region is rightly famed.
The Ile d’Oléron, in the wild waters of the Atlantic Ocean, is the ideal place to learn the art of sea fishing. So why not join Carole and Virgile at La Cailletière for a relaxing holiday with a taste of the sea? Sit in the cool shade of an oak tree and enjoy the peace and quiet of the island as you wait for a bite. And what better than a family bike ride to explore the island and its lovely landscape? Not forgetting to stop off and sample some local oysters, of course!
