The Hotel

Hôtel Le Grand Large: a breathtaking view of the ocean and an unforgettable stay on the island of Oleron.


Located on a natural and wild site, the hotel Le Grand Large is hidden in the middle of the dunes on one of the most beautiful beaches of the Ile d'Oléron. Between forest, dunes and ocean, discover an establishment with a family dimension, where well-being and change of scenery are the key words.

The hotel was built in 1965 by Mr. and Mrs. Moreau, a couple of enthusiasts wishing to embark on a large-scale project: to create an upscale hotel, with "Le Corbusier" architecture, which would fit perfectly into its natural environment, while offering excellent services. A successful venture, as it will endure within the same family for more than 30 years.

From one family to another, Le Grand Large hotel will undergo a refresh in 2011 and will be managed for more than 10 years by the Bougnard family, who fell under the hotel's spell. Much more than just renovations, its new owners have given it an identity, a soul as well as a strong family dimension, all characteristics that have won over the hearts of its dear guests over time.

In its constant search for new nuggets, The Boutique Hotels Collection, displays well-defined selection criteria, establishments on a human scale, located in attractive locations and steeped in history, all of which the hotel in Oleron, which joins the collection in 2022, perfectly meets.

Gastronomic restaurant, rooftop, expanded terraces, carefully chosen decor... Le Grand Large hotel opens a new page in its history with a fifth star to be today more than ever a Luxury hotel, a true confidential and refined address.
