The north west coast of France is well known for its island holidays like Ile de Ree or Belle Ile, another one less well known in Ireland is Ile d Olerans, which is further south on the route to Bordeaux, south of Nantes and La Rochelle.
Olerans is the second largest island after Corsica belonging to France and has a real island atmosphere, a free bridge connects it to the mainland and differs to Ile de Ree
because it is reasonably priced for hotels and restaurants, although camping may be the best option for Irish families ranging in prices of €3,600 for a family of 4 renting a tent.
