Ile de Re
One of the most beautiful parts of France, Ile de Re is the ideal place for a family holiday if you like to be active and enjoy cycling, watersports, beach holidays and true French culture. The village of Rivedoux has everything close at hand from beaches and shops to restaurants all within easy walking distance. There is a lovely promenade in Rivedoux to enjoy an evening stroll.
Ile de Ré, off La Rochelle is linked to the mainland by a bridge. It offers an idealized version of French life. Cars are in the minority; most people use the cycle paths that criss-cross the island’s vineyards, pine forests and salt flats. Ile de Ré salt is now predictably fashionable in gastro circles. The ice cream is hand made and the glorious sandy beaches - all open to the public - are well suited to shrimping and picnics.
Just 15km long and a mere 100 metres at its narrowest point, the island of Ré is home to 16 000 people. The residents congregate around ten main large villages, including St Marie de Ré on the island's southern most tip.
On Ré's southern side you will find many expansive beaches and on its northern side many yachting harbours. Though most visitors arrive in the summer, Ré has much to offer throughout the year - the temperatures may drop after September, but the sun is ever present all year round. Ré's close proximity to mainland cities make it an ideal place as a base camp to explore other cities (Bordeaux and Nantes are just two hours away; La Rochelle a mere 30 minutes). The construction of a bridge in 1988 puts everything within close proximity.
The house is in the centre of Rivedoux village. It is a quaint fishing village with plenty of restaurants and shops... The village has its own produce market, offering high quality fresh fish and locally farmed oysters, cheese and patisserie. Everything is within walking distance including restaurants, hotels, newsagents and a selection of other shops.
There is plenty to do for all the family to include a children's club on the Rivedoux beach during summer holidays. There is also a pony club for kids, a tennis club, and a watersport centre on Rivedoux beach providing jet skiing, wind surfing, etc. The excellent sailing school there provides 1 week courses for both adults and kids. A children's park is also closeby. Rivedoux is also home of the kitesurfing on the island , the best beach on the island is about 200 metres from the house. Opposite the house there is a promenade for walks on the balmy summer evenings. Along the promenade you can stop for a glass of wine or a meal at one of the restaurants.
Cycling is the most popular mode of transport. Although a car is not essential it would allow the exploring of surrounding areas. Renting bicycles for all the family is highly recommended. There are 60 miles of cycle lanes on the island of Ile de Re. It is easy to hire bikes for all ages including babies carriers.
The sea and beach is only steps away from the front gate!
