Address Le Grand Large 2 Av. de l'Océan, 17550 Dolus-d'Oléron, France

The modern architecture and its immaculate whiteness allow this hotel establishment not to go unnoticed on the island of Oleron, where it is a must-see.

A 4-star hotel, Le Grand Large is, as its name suggests, positioned facing the ocean and offers a breathtaking view of the waves. With several rooms, an indoor pool and a beautiful terrace with privileged access to the beach, it is set in the middle of a preserved natural area. Inaugurated in 1965, and one of the first luxury hotels on the island, Le Grand Large’s architecture is largely inspired by the work of Le Corbusier. It was completely renovated in 2011.
