About Olivier

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 Ile de Re

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.

A very Enjoyable weeks holiday

  • 4 of 5

Although you enter the property at the end of a small alley, it offers very private and secluded accommodation including a courtyard with all day sunshine and no overlooking. Best suited for a couple or small family, and can be a bit dark in poor weather, a lighting upgrade would help considerably.

Everything you need is provided, all was very clean, and the greeting and assistance we received all made it a great week in what is a delightful village on a delightful island.

Not for winter staying.

  • 1 of 5

This property is not for winter stay. There is a moldy smell that comes after long time of no heating. Bath and toilet (that seams to be non-isolated) has no heating and is is cold specially at night. We had leased it for 9 days, but had to leave after 5 days. We could not contact anybody at the time we left and got contact 3 days later. The owner did not answer my e-mails and had not done it yet

charmant séjour

  • 5 of 5

Maison très confortable et idéalement située. La grande cour intérieure, bien isolée du voisinage, est très agréable pour les repas ensoleillés au printemps (même si elle est un peu loin de la cuisine).

Maison très bien équipée, bien distribuée (chambres à l'écart), bien décorée.

Location de vélos à coté, supermarché accessible à pied. La voiture n'est pas nécessaire. A ce propos, il est important de savoir que les bus (en tout cas les jours de grands départs) sont pris d’assaut à l'arrivée à la gare de La Rochelle (et pas de réservation possible), et en retard au retour (nous avons raté notre TGV malgré notre marge de quarante minutes sur l'horaire indiqué). Prenez vos précautions!
