Make a holiday rental in Ile de Re your home away from home

The Ile de Re is a glorious island of nature, culture and safe beaches just off the Charente-Maritime coast in western France. The population increases hugely during the summer months as families flock to the island for the magnificent climate and safe beaches and calming ambiance. Just 30km across, any Ile de Re holiday rental is a perfect base from which to investigate the sandy beaches, salt marshes and vineyards which have made the island famous as a holiday retreat in the sun.

Things to do from your holiday rental in Ile de Re

The natural beauty of the Ile de Re has been protected by strict planning controls keeping all Ile de Re holiday rentals and buildings under two stories high. 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. Ile de Re is home to a number of surf schools providing lessons for children who have never tried the sport before to refresher courses for those with a few waves under their belt. 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. Whether you are feeling under the weather or not, an afternoon in a thalassotherapy centre from your Ile de Re apartment couldn’t be more relaxing!

                                              A lovely, clean house. Has everything you need, even loads of games and toys for the children. the outside courtyard is a wonderful sun trap. The area is quiet and a short walk from a long sandy beach. Brilliant holiday on Ile de Re and this house was a great base to return to each day.

                                              We enjoyed a gloriously peaceful stay at this lovely house in Ars. As there was only two of us and a large dog we had plenty of space. The internal courtyard is very pretty and perfect for catching the late September sun, as is the upstairs terrace in the early evening. The island has beautiful beaches and we cycled a lot with the dog in an enormous carrier on the front. The house is 2 minutes from the centre and 5 minutes from the Port where we were able to buy the freshest fish and produce. It was most relaxing and we would definitely revisit Ars.

                                              Wonderful house, fantastic location

                                              5 of 5
                                              My husband, my son (7) and I have just returned from a fantastic holiday in La Flotte. This house was perfect for us. Very short walk to the port, passing the boulangerie, cheese shop, Carrefour, crepe shop and amazing 12 century market en route amongst other shops. The house is very clean. The beds are super comfortable and the house is equipped with everything that you need to live as though you were at home. The dining room is extremely bright due to the various sets of French doors over looking the sunny courtyard, as is the sitting room. The courtyard has an exit to the side alley which is really helpful when bringing the bicycles in. The owners (who we met) were extremely helpful, giving us many suggestions for activities for our little boy in and around the port. E mails were answered very quickly and communications were very easy as the owners speak excellent English. I would not hesitate to recommend this house to small or large families as it is very spacious and light filled thanks to the central atrium/dining room which is open to the roof. We have already booked for 2016.
