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.

The island is the refuge of many French show-bizz and political people.

Location description from owner

The Poitou-Charentes region

Vendée and the Charentes are just across the bridge. Cognac, Bordeaux are less than 2 hours by car.

La Couarde-sur-Mer

Ile de Ré is famous for its climate, its wines, its salt, and sand beaches, its villages which are all white with green or grey shutters. A rare architecture unity like Greece, unsual on the Atlantic Coast. With Ryan Air and by car it is just a few hours away from Europe

Wintertime is great too.
