The Poitou-Charentes 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.

Le Bois

St Martin, La Flotte, Ars et les Portes are particularly pretty. Le Bois is very well placed right in the middle of the island. In the north, the Fier d'Ars-en-Ré is a mix of mudflats and salt marshes, where every kind of birds can be found. The flat-bottomed boats, the rakes of all the salt-gatherers, the oyster beds and the scent of the moorland give the Ile de Ré an unequalled romanticism.

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

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

Hire a bike and see the island at your own pace – it is by far the easiest and healthiest way to travel around. Over 60 miles of cycle paths link all the main villages and beaches together. 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. Details of where and how to rent bikes will be given in the welcome pack which is sent with the contract.
