The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

Off the coast at La Rochelle (Charente-Maritime), the Ile de Ré (pop. 12,000) is a narrow stretch of flat land 30 kilometres long, which almost doubles in size at low tide. Of all the Charentais islands, Ré is undoubtedly the most popular. Attracted by the island's beauty, many artists, writers and painters bought salt-workers’ and fishermen’s houses in the 1960s, and the island became fashionable. The villages have retained all their authentic charm with their white lime-washed, green-shuttered houses and narrow streets full of hollyhocks.

In the north, the Fier d’Ars-en-Ré is a patchwork of mudflats and salt marshes, where every kind of wader and bird of prey is to be found. The flat-bottomed boats, the rakes of the salt-gatherers, the oyster beds and the scent of the moorland give the Ile de Ré a romanticism without equal.

The island is famous for its salt, which is collected by salters towards the western end of the island, its oysters and its potatoes, all of which you can enjoy in the many restaurants scattered throughout the island’s villages.

The waters around the Ile de Ré are loved by all watersports enthusiasts – windsurfers, yachtsmen and all sailors. The Atlantic Ocean is much less dangerous here than in other areas of the mainland coast so bathing is recommended for all.

Hire a bike and see the island at your leisure – it is by far the easiest and healthiest way to travel. Over 60 miles of cycle paths link all the main villages and beaches. The island is exceptionally flat, so hard work is kept to a minimum! You can hire bikes and child seats in all configurations from one of the many rental shops across the island.

Ile de Re

Just 5 minutes by car from St. Martin, the island's lively capital, La Couarde is a small, pretty town with bags of typical Ile de Ré charm: whitewashed houses with green shutters, narrow lanes lined with hollyhocks, gourmet restaurants and family cafés, chi-chi boutiques and a daily outdoor market in the summer. Unwind on the fine, sandy beach or enjoy windsurfing, sailing, horse riding or cycling. The superb aquarium at La Rochelle, the beautiful La Palmyre Zoo (near Royan), Fort Boyard and, further afield, the vineyards of St. Emilion, make good day trip destinations.
