Ile de Ré is a captivating island set off the west coast of France next to the city of La Rochelle. Ile de Ré is a chic location with a background of picturesque harbours, restaurants and long white sandy beaches. Cycle paths cover the island and the narrow streets of the 10 villages make foot or bicycle the best way to get around. The island is 35km long and 5km wide and is joined to the mainland by a spectacular 3km bridge which touches down in La Rochelle with its impressive ports and old town.
Ile de Re shares the privilege with the Cote d'Azur of being one of the sunniest regions of France. Its climate is mild, and the temperature almost never goes below freezing. Its vegetation is surprisingly southern, almost Mediterranean. Pine trees and palms grow there easily, and the glare of the white houses against the deep blue sky irresistibly evokes some Greek village adrift on the Atlantic Ocean.
A flat, fragrant, family friendly holiday spot. it's criss-crossed by an extensive network (160km) of cycle paths which wind through fields full of poppies, pine forests, pretty French villages, past fishing harbours, salt pans and oyster farms. It's also celebrated for its endless sandy beaches backed by powdery dunes. The island feels like the France, or rather the 'seaside' of yesteryear. It is the perfect place for running barefoot along the shore, playing hide and seek in the sand dunes, picking your way through rock pools and picnics on the sand.
Strict building regulations have meant that even new properties have to stick to the low-slung whitewashed-with-green-shutters look. However, the chic shops and waterfront restaurants of the fishing villages give it a very French maritime sophistication.
STE MARIE/LA NOUE:
The cottage is located in La Noue on the outskirts of St Marie de Ré. It is a quiet, tranquil setting. La Noue village square has its own produce market, offering high quality fresh fish and locally farmed oysters, cheese and patisserie. Everything is within walking distance including three restaurants, bakery, bike hire, small morning market and newsagent. There is a Supermarket in Saint Marie.You can relax at the Spa centre L'Atalante or go horseback riding, tennis, sailing, windsurfing, surfing or biking. Numerous biking routes also ideal for jogging.The Saint Marie/La Noue area is suited to those who enjoy walks through the vineyards and village life rather than those who prefer the more urban/commercial attractions of La Flotte or Saint-Martin. Sainte Marie has been awarded Staion Verte a national label awarded to French nature and green tourism.

"A place to fall in love with!"
I knew nothing of Il de Re when I booked our holiday, a friend had recommended the island as "Paradise in one place" so took her word for it. It did not disappoint. We found the gite on the … More
