Location description from owner

The Poitou-Charentes region

The department of Charente Maritime is situated on the west coast of France bordered with beautiful sandy beaches to harbours, salt marshes to coastal defences, oyster beds to vineyards.

The organisation of events such as Sites en Scène, Fort Boyard, La Rochelle's Fancofolies, the Festival du Cinéma, the Grand Pavois, the Whitbread Trophy and major international sailing events, the Saintes Académies Musicales and the Montguyon Music Festival all contribute daily to the heritage and vitality of Charente Maritime.

Sainte Marie de Re

Ile de Ré, off La Rochelle is linked to the mainland by a bridge. It offers an idealized version of French life. Cars are in the minority; most people use the cycle paths that criss-cross the island’s vineyards, pine forests and salt flats. Ile de Ré salt is now predictably fashionable in gastro circles. The ice cream is hand made and the glorious sandy beaches - all open to the public - are well suited to shrimping and picnics.

The house is on the outskirts of St Marie de Ré, in a village called La Noue. It is a quiet, secluded and tranquil setting, home to an incredible variety of plant and bird life. The village has its own produce market, offering high quality fresh fish and locally farmed oysters, cheese and patisserie. Everything is within walking distance including two restaurants, a newsagent and an antique shop.

Just 15km long and a mere 100 metres at its narrowest point, the island of Ré is home to 16 000 people. The residents congregate around ten main large villages, including St Marie de Ré on the island's southern most tip.

On Ré's southern side you will find many expansive beaches and on its northern side many yachting harbours. Though most visitors arrive in the summer, Ré has much to offer throughout the year - the temperatures may drop after September, but the sun is ever present all year round. Ré's close proximity to mainland cities make it an ideal place as a base camp to explore other cities (Bordeaux and Nantes are just two hours away; La Rochelle a mere 30 minutes). The construction of a bridge in 1988 puts everything within close proximity.

“Best holliday ever!”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2012

We had a wonderful week in La Noue and Flocon de Sel. The house was just like this site describes it - clean, well equiped and very kozy. The owners, Isabelle and Ian, are so nice and welcoming and very service-minded. They answer any questions about the area and they were doing everything to make us feel comfortable. Our teenaged boys, and our girls who are a little younger, said they prefer to stay at the island compared to La Rochelle. We found La Noue very peacefull, beautyful and most important of all - very safe and secure. Hireing bikes was a good investment, you get easily around - a comfortable way of exploring the island. We can absolutely recommend this place, and when we return, it will be for at least 2 weeks!!

“Perfect”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2012

We were two friends with our teenage kids and we had a fantastic time in the house. It was a wonderful house and perfect location. Nice bakery and marketplace and close to everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Isabel and Ian were very helpful and nice hosts, and we all enjoyed our stay. We would love to come back, but then we will stay for more than one week.
