Married for more than 3 years, native from the Ré Island, surveyor for more than 20 years. We love bike rides, nature, observing migratory birds in the salt marshes. We like the wonderful beaches surrounding the village and go to the markets buy some local products.
Olivier purchased this house in 2012
Why Olivier chose Ars
We inherited this pretty house on the Ré Island, and we recently renovated it. This house has been in my family for almost 200 years. At the beginning of the XIXth century, it was a stable; which was later changed into a shoemaker's workshop. For more than 40 years, this lovely village house has been used as a holiday rental, and we are happy to propose holidaymakers an unforgettable stay between sea and marshes.
What makes this house unique
We love this pretty distinguished house of stone located at the end of an alley, quiet with its sunny courtyard and not overlooked to spend some delightful moments (rest and grilling). This courtyard has a vine allowing the holidaymakers to harvest the grapes in September. This house is very suitable for a couple with children, who can safely play in the courtyard surrounded by stonewalls; or for a retired couple wishing to enjoy the quiet and the practical and functional side of this house; or for friends wanting to gather around a table and grilling after nautical activities.
