From the owner

The house is on the edge of La Flotte, a small fishing port with numerous restaurants and shops as well as a famous daily medieval food market, tourist information, banks and tennis courts. All of these are within a few minutes walk of the house.

The accommodation includes three double bedrooms and a sofa bed in the Sitting Room. There is a large private garden with off street parking.

The house overlooks the sea, with excellent small boat sailing and windsurfing at high tide. There is a small shingle beach beside the house and a large sandy supervised beach at the other end of the village. There is a modern indoor public swimming pool 5 minutes drive from the house.

La Flotte is within easy reach of the beautiful city of La Rochelle (by car or by bus or ferry from the island), where the tourist attractions include a modern aquarium and maritime and natural history museums.

The Futurescope site at Poitiers (60 mins) with its high tech exhibits contrasts with the tranquillity of the Venise Verte, an area of canals to the North of La Rochelle, where canoes can be hired.

Further details

There is a comprehensive guide to the island in the house which we have written and which includes information about the beaches, restaurants, shopping, sports facilities, tourist attractions, etc.

There is a large collection of DVDs and videos for your use, together with a small library and numerous guide books. There is free internet access.

Further details indoors

The single storey accommodation is generously sized. Single beds throughout but can be pushed together to make doubles. Double sofa bed in Sitting Room.

Everyone who has stayed here has commented favourably on the standard and quality of the accommodation. We maintain it with a no compromise attitude.

Further details outdoors

The large paved Terrrace opens off the Sitting Room and has a table and chairs, sun loungers, deckchairs, etc. It is fitted with a motorised sun-blind.

The beautiful garden has areas of grass for children to play but is well planted, has an automatic watering system and is professionally maintained.

You can drive in and park by the front door which is very useful when unloading small children or shopping.

We do not have a swimming pool because the sea is so close at hand. If you like sailing or windsurfing, this is perfect (small boat slipway 2 minutes from house and park your boat in the garden).
