Se réchauffer devant un bon feu de cheminée après une longue promenade sur la côte sauvage tout en regardant les bateaux sortir du petit port de Saint Martin, que demander de mieux ! Peut être les délicieuses huitres du port de la Flotte ou les glaces et gauffres de la Martinière ? Merci à notre hôte très accueillante pour ses bons conseils. On recommande !

                                                                                                    4 of 5

It is well-equipped with everything needed for a holiday, it is comfortable and light, and during our stay in September it was very quiet, though in high season it may be noisier as it is very close to shops, cafes etc. It is clean and well looked after, and the owner is extremely helpful and responsive, and the price is fair in a situation that is usually very expensive. It is a very good place to stay on the Ile de Re, and extremely convenient for restaurants, the harbour, the market etc. Highly recommended.

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    A fabulous place to stay as a relaxing retreat, we were 2 families and had a wonderful stay. Large luxury Villa with very well thought out sitting and eating areas inside and out. Very well equipt kitchen for the home chef! Gardens fully enclosed keeping little ones safe. The pool is heated as described at a steady 29 degrees making swimming a very pleasant experience. Again the pool is kiddy friendly as it can be closed off with locking patio doors. More than adequate wifi speeds and great it tech available. Fully equipped laundry equipment - washer, dryer. No hidden costs / charges. Please be awear that there is not much here for more independent teenagers or for those looking for a strolling, wine drinking, cafe culture. The only criticism I would have is there is no air con or fans available and the bikes needed puncture repairs before we could use them and really would benefit from some maintenance. These are very minor issues and I would have no problems recommending this venue to friends and family, and we will be looking to book to stay here again. Many thanks to Nicholas for his superb communication and for helping make this a stress free vacation.
