Nice typical house in the heart of the village of La Couarde sur Mer, in the middle of Ile de Ré. Nicely flowered garden of 100 square meters with trees, with two entrances. One of to the Main Street between the church and the Carrefour Supermarket ( a 2minutes walk ) and another used for the bicyles. The house has 4 bedrooms including one independent studio in the garden, with toilets, shower and a big room ) The main house has one room with a large bed, toilets, a TV room, one large (45m2) living room with a nice comfortable fire-place, and a 30 m2 kichen separaated from the dining room by a bar. Upstairs are the bathroom ( shower and bath) and two large rooms with four beds. Lots of books, DVD and a large flat screen with 250 channels.

The house is decorated in the spirit of the island and is usually habited by the owners, so it has everything possible for your own usage, such as sheets, towels, kitchen machinery (for laundry and dishes) , a dryer, refrigerator and freezer ).

Internet access give you free telephone calls to 100 countries and 250 channels on tv.

It is a charming house where one family would feel at home and confortable, in the summer as well as in the autumn, springtime or even winter when the beaches are empty of mankind and when you feel alone on earth!

In the winter time logs are at your service in the courtyard next to the garden.

The village of La Couarde has a supermarket, a fruit and daily open market, a butcher, a bakery etc.. the only movie theater on the island, many sporting facilities ( tennis, 9 holes golf in Les Portes, abig swimming pool open all year around in the "capital" of the island, 3 miles away.

Biking all year around is a pleasure on this flat island, from one beach to the other, from one village to the other, around the salt marshes, and you have 5 bicyles for free in the house, plus 2 for children.

From Ile de Ré you can easily cross the bridge and visit the area which has historical spots such as Rochefort, Brouage ( Samuel Champlain was born there), la Rochelle from where thousands and thousands of people emigrated to Canada and the US. In the summer you are 90 min away from the famous Puu du Fou amusement park which was rated last year as the best amusement park in the world ( www.puydufou.com). Bordeaux is just 2 hours from la Couarde..

Airport with Ryan Air is 12 kilometers away. TGV to Paris, Bordeaux, Poitiers if a minutes ride. And buses leave La Rochelle station for La Couarde. Motorway to Paris is a maximum of 5 hours.

The ocean is quite warm between june and the end of september. The weather is nice, never really cold, thanks to a micro-climate and the Gulfstream.
