Holiday accommodation in the Ile de Re tend to be low lying whitewashed apartments with coloured shutters and terracotta roofs. The beach is never far from a self catering Ile de Re holiday property or apartment, and the finest on the island are found to the south of the island, where the sand is soft, and there are plenty of idyllic spots to set your towel. The northern beaches are rocky and flat, with very shallow waters perfect for oyster and mussel cultivation.

Ile de Re surfing holidays are great fun. The shallow beaches of Le Bois Plage and La Couarde are battered by huge Atlantic breakers, perfect for surfing.

Waterskiing, wake boarding and kite surfing in the Ile de Re also thrive, and there are some exceptional places to go sailing, take a lesson or hire a yacht and discover your own spot of paradise on the Ile de Re.

There has always been a strong connection between the Ile de Re and horses, and that continues to this day. There are a range of excellent stables on the island, as well as a maze of magnificent bridle paths taking riders to some of the most spectacular viewpoints on the island. Walking holidays from Ile de Re holiday homes are also very enjoyable.

After a long day on the beaches or in the hills, there are three spa centres in which to get pampered. Regardless of the location of your Ile de Re apartment, a spa centre will not be far away, specialising in thalassotherapy, the use of the maritime environment for the benefits of your health.
