The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

The south western Atlantic French coast boasts immense beaches with fine golden sand, charming seaside resorts and pine forests. It has a recognised microclimate and enjoys more than 2300 hours of sun per year. It is an area where nature and sport are interlinked with everything at hand for an energetic stay be it walking, horseriding, cycling or surfing.

The historic, fortified city of La Rochelle is just 15 minutes form Ile de Re by car and offers a variety of recreational activities, places of interest, quayside restaurants and excellent shopping.

Ile de Re

The Ile de Re is one of the jewels of the Atlantic coast and measures 30 km in length and 5 km at its widest point. The island is composed of ten villages, which each respect the typical architecture of the area with their streets of white washed walls, green shutters and hollyhocks. With over 70 km of coastline, it also offers extensive sandy beaches making it a haven for watersports enthusiasts. The island is also a paradise for cyclists with about 100m of dedicated cycle paths and trails which link the 10 villages together. As the island is generally flat, this is an excellent and pleasurable way to explore the island. Cycle hire (plus the whole variety of attachments to suit all ages of children) is widely available.

All the natural open spaces are preserved - the vineyards, forests, salt marshes, oyster parks, which means the island remains unspoilt and a delight to explore.

La Flotte is a charming port town. The picturesque harbour is surrounded by a delightful range of restaurants, bars and shops. The town is a thriving community which means it is much more than simply a 'tourist town'. There is an excellent food market every day and, in the summer months, a general evening market plus, quite often, musical entertainment. All facilities in the town are within walking distance of the house.

We believe, whatever your situation, you cannot fail to have an enjoyable holiday on the Ile de Re. There really is something for everyone - it is a haven and inspiration for artists, writers, cyclists, walkers, birdwatchers, gourmets, explorers, fishermen and sailors.

"A wonderful place to stay - wish we could stay forever!"

My daughter booked the gite for herself and husband, myself and my husband, on my recommendation, having read previous reviews, especially as we did not know how good the weather would be. (In the event, it was lovely for most of the time.) The house is a delight, comfortable stylish, extremely well-equipped and maintained. The garden is large and private, with a large patio. Beds comfortable, plenty of seating, great barbecue.
Market and shops nearby, plenty of restaurants. We had enough room to entertain six friends from La Rochelle to a barbecue at the weekend, which was great, as we hadn't seen them for several years. We hope to return with our other daughter and her three children, sometime soon. Would recommend to anyone, of any age. Just one thing to note -the sandy beach is on the other side of La Flotte, which is not very far but people with children wanting a sandy beach need to know that there is some walking, cycling or motoring involved to get there. The Ile de Re itself is perfect for anyone who loves nature, the sea, the great outdoors and wonderful food. We stayed from 23 - 30 September.
