NEW to rental: beautiful family home in La Couarde, sleeps 8, near to the beach

Bedrooms 4
Space 1,291 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Stylish and well-equipped. 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. Sunny garden. Close to beach

Imagine a house a 5 minute walk away from a long sandy beach, yet only a 10 minute walk from a traditional French market and beautiful village - even closer on a bicycle. Then imagine that house on a quiet, residential road, opposite a private allotment and vineyard and you might have some idea of why we fell in love with our house as soon as we saw it!

Tamarins sleeps 8 people comfortably. Inside the main house is a kingsize double room with en-suite shower and toilet. One twin bedroom and a third bedroom with bunk-beds share the main house shower room with separate toilet. A further double bedroom and en-suite shower room and toilet are found in the self contained stone annex in the walled garden - perfect for relatives, or those wanting a bit of peace, or private space.

A beautiful light filled, high ceilinged living and dining area open out onto the south facing, sun-filled garden: a highlight of the house. Filled with rose, honesuckle, iris' and clematis

New to rental for summer 2017, we have filled the house with everything needed for a perfect French holiday: hammock, charcoal and electric BBQ, wi-fi, English tv, dvd player, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. Linen and towels can be provided by our local agent for £18 per person. Please let us know when booking if you would like linen.

We loved our stay in la couarde. Rebecca's house was amazing. So close to the village but far enough away for complete privacy. The house was fitted to a high standard. We will definitely be back

Lovely summer holiday on Ile-de-Re

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautiful - stylishly decorated and spotless. Great for our little family, and nice to have the option of the self contained annex (which gave grandma a bit of her own space). A very short walk to the beach and into the pretty little town centre. A great base for exploring the island, everything within easy distance. We did take a car but you could certainly spend the whole holiday on foot and bicycle.

The cottage was very well equipped. Fantastic to have the electric BBQ as well as the usual mod cons in the kitchen. The coffee machine is a Dolce Gusto, so make sure to buy those pods and not rival brands! Nice patio area with seating and the garden, although small, is very private and sheltered. There is no bath (just showers) which made cleaning a toddler a bit harder, so bear in mind if you have little ones.

Would recommend if you're looking for somewhere quiet and close to the beach. We had a really fantastic holiday.

Très bon séjour

Emplacement idéal, entre la plage et les commerces, dans un quartier très calme.

Maison pratique, surtout avec des enfants (rien de dangereux ou de précieux à casser).

Propriétaire flexible et réactif.
