Le Château-d'Oléron

Le Château-d'Oléron
The Essential
The ruins of the old citadel can still be seen in the 17C fortified town of Le Château-d'Oléron. The rest of the town is laid out in a geometric plan around a vast square adorned with a pretty Renaissance-style fountain with four cable columns. The town runs right down to the port, where you can admire the fishing boats going to and fro from the oyster beds offshore.
