-> One studio F2 for 2/4 persons (2 adults and 1 to 2 children) with living room, kitchenette, shower room / basin, separate toilet. This last rental is recommended for people under 1.85 meters taking into account the beds and the size of the toilet.

Très petit et fatigué- very small and tired!!

  • 2 of 5

A very small space and in need of some care; photos not quite a fair representation.

The room was very small and pokey with the bathroom taking up the corner of it and not lending much privacy given the proximity to the bedroom and weight of the door - on the positive side, it had a good shower. The room had a thin wall between it and the next bedroom - the outside space was shared with four other rooms and the communal kitchen was outside. The crockery and cutlery was not nice, it didn't feel clean. You would struggle to cook a meal, we didn't bother trying although had chosen it because it had a kitchen. Location is ideal for walking around the village and for hiring bikes and exploring some of the beaches and towns such as St Martain.

In summary - location was great but the room was far too expensive for the quality and size. Disappointing.

Tiny rooms and shared kitchen and garden

  • 2 of 5

Ars en Ré is beautiful, so do go! We rented bikes right away to escape of the tiny room.

The garden and kitchen is shared by the other tenants. Our neighbors had 14 month old twins.

It looks like the whole place is for you, but just 1/3 is. You pay peanuts, you get monkies.

Owner's Response: Bonjour Monsieur, Nous vous remercions pour séjour et avis. Pour nos lecteurs, voici les réponses à vos commentaires : Fermeture de la porte de la chambre "Dune", il s'agissait de la chambre "Galets" : en effet un petit défaut d'usure, il faut bien appliquer la porte en bas et en haut lors de la fermeture. Circulation de vélos dans la cuisine : comme écrit dans le règlement des lieux, les vélos se stationnent dans la première cours en amont de la cuisine, merci de respecter ces consignes pour le bien être de vos voisins. fonctionnement 1 fois sur 2 de la plaque a induction : si la plaque est propre et sèche, il n'y a aucun problème avec la plaque à induction.
