The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
The Ile de Ré, with its several ports, many beaches, and low lying, whitewashed communities, has long been popular as a vacation spot for French families.
With the arrival of a causeway in 1988 linking the island to the mainland, the island's inhabitants have tried to manage growth without harming the island's charm and authenticity. Significant restrictions on new construction, and strict standards, have long existed.
Ile de Re
The smallness (some 20 miles long and at some locations only yards wide), flatness, and variety (beach, forest, and wildlife) of the island makes it ideal for recreational cycling. It is also popular for sailing, and most water sports.
After a day of sightseeing and sport, many like to finish a summer day with an evening outside at one of the local ports' cafés, watching the boats come in.
The numerous sights of the island are best discussed in the island's website: www.iledere.com.

"The most charming getaway imaginable for sun, sea and relaxation ."
I had a great stay with friends here . It is a beautiful spacious and light property with all the charm one would expect of the Ile de Ré . The bedrooms were well considered each with its own personal theme . Everywhere was clean , comfortable and well designed.
The woodburning stove gave warmth and ambiance to evening relaxation after a stroll along the nearby beach which was well within walking distance.
I would fully recommend this holiday let and can't wait to return there myself.
