Beautiful house and garden in a great location!
We spent a lovely week here with our three children. The house was well-equipped and nicely decorated. The pool was great and used everyday! Just a short walk to La Noue market and boulangerie and a short bike ride to the beach. A great holiday home - we recommend without hesitation! Thank you to Isabelle and Ian for being very kind and helpful hosts.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Isabelle and I are so happy you had a lovely holiday. We hope to see you and your family again on Ile de Re, a delightful island for a holiday destination. Merci encore.....
Wonderful - absolutely ideal
Beautiful garden, excellent pool and set up for enjoying dining & relaxing outside. Great welcome, couldn’t have been more welcoming. Definitely recommend it.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Ian and I are delighted you and your family enjoyed your holiday on Île de Ré. We hope to see you again for your family summer holiday. Merci encore Isabelle
Perfect gite with stunning garden and pool
We love Flocon de Sel and highly recommend it. We have stayed twice before in August 2015 and August 2016, rebooking for a third time to visit in summer 2017 (and we never usually stay in the same place twice)!
The gite is well equipped, clean and spacious enough for our family of five and a grandparent or two, with airy rooms leading onto the extremely well-maintained outdoor terrace and gardens, which are beautifully designed. The pool is an excellent size, surrounded by more thoughtful planting with plenty of sunloungers and chairs. Entry to the gite is through a secure gate, so children can play safely and freely. Isabelle and Ian are very warm and welcoming, going above and beyond to ensure we have a wonderful holiday.
Flocon de Sel is close to one of the best bakeries on the island and 5 minutes on a bike to a supermarket. It is located in La Noue with easy access to the cycle path network - we like to bike along to Gros Jonc beach near Bois-Plage, or across the island to La Flotte, St Martin and beyond.
The long, sandy beaches remain uncrowded even in summer and the various towns dotted around the island are a delight to wander around with lively markets, beautifully stocked shops, delicious culinary treats and pretty houses.
absolutely fantastic place to stay!!
Have spent two years going to this place and wow accommodation is great and the owners are on site to help with any queries as to taxi restaurants etc. Very private and even if you don't drive there is the bus bus stop within 5 minute walk. Great for cycling and bicycles are for rent down the road!! The village has several restaurants and shops including a great market for local produce and clothes etc. Would definitely recommend this place and they speak perfect English and French what more could you ask.
Thank you for your kind review, Ian and I are very proud of the quality of accommodation Flocon de Sel, provides our clients. Ile de Ré is truly a lovely destination for a holiday, quiet beaches with lovely quaint villages connected by cycle paths.
Merci pour votre gentille appréciation
Ian and Isabelle
Perfect house on a beautiful island
We loved Flocon de Sel. The property was spacious, tastefully decorated, beautifully maintained, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. It made a great home from home for us. The swimming pool was large, clean and heated to 28 degrees. The outside space was just lovely – with beautifully maintained gardens and terraces with plenty of sun-loungers. There is a large gas BBQ and family dining table.
The property was in a perfect location for us to be able to enjoy a week without driving our car as everywhere on this lovely island is accessible by bike and there are miles upon miles of cycle paths. Everything we could possibly need was only a short walk or cycle away.
Sainte-Marie-de-Ré is a small village, on the southern coast of the Île de Ré. The is a daily food market, cheese shop, a great bakery and a handful of restaurants within a 5 minute walk of the property.
We will certainly return.
Une bonne semaine .
Nous avons passé une bonne semaine avec le beau temps .
La maison est vaste , confortable et propre .
Les fréquentes baignades dans la grande piscine à 25°
ont été fort appréciées .
Le jardin bien entretenu autour de la piscine est très plaisant . Le bord de mer à proximité complète le tout .
Pour se nourrir , il y a 2 restaurants sur la place du village ainsi que le marché oû on trouve des fruits et légumes des producteurs locaux .
Les propriétaires sont accueillants et serviables .
Cet endroit est au calme et c'est pourquoi nous y reviendrons l'été prochain .
