The Poitou-Charentes / Vendee / Charente Maritime region
The department of Charente Maritime is situated on the Atlantic coast of France famous for the beautiful sandy beaches which are also indigenous to Ile de Ré with the tidal flow creating the natural phenomenon of salt marshes. The Office du Tourisme of Charente Maritime states the depatment has the 2nd most hours of sunshine and 2nd highest year round average temperature after the Cote-D'Azur, ideal for cultivating the oyster beds and vineyards.
The organisation of events such as Sites en Scène, Fort Boyard, La Rochelle's Fancofolies, the Festival du Cinéma, the Grand Pavois, the Whitbread Trophy and major international sailing events, the Saintes Académies Musicales and the Montguyon Music Festival all contribute daily to the heritage and vitality of Charente Maritime.
The Ile de Re / La Flotte en Re area
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.
The house in the heart of La Flotte en Ré, It is a quiet, secluded and tranquil setting, the island is home to an incredible variety of plant and bird life. 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 a wide variety of restaurants, and other commerce.
Just 15km long and a mere 100 metres at its narrowest point, the island of Ré is home to 18 000 people. The residents congregate around ten main large villages, including La Flotte en Ré on the island's north coast.
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.

Two families totaling 4 adults and 6 offspring (8-17yrs) rented this house for a week. It has a fantastic location very close to the hub of the town of La Flotte, several doors down from the daily market. The advantage is immediate access to the finest freshest food available, the downside is some early morning noise whilst it is set up each day. The accommodation is good - the rooms are smallish but comfortable and most have their own small bathroom. The outside space for eating, lounging and swimming in the pool is super and very private for such a central location. There is lots of space for bikes which are essential to make best use of the island. There is a pleasant small beach within 5 minutes walk and the evening atmosphere around the harbour is very relaxed and friendly. Satellite TV (especially during the Olympics!) or iPod music player would have been useful for occasional teenage moodiness. Overall a lovely place to stay and judging from prices in the estate agent windows a very valuable property.
