British Francophile who has spent many happy summers on Ile de Re - a little bubble of perfection! Currently living in Sydney, Australia.

Felicity Stinton purchased this house in 2004

We love having the cottage in such a pretty village, La Flotte with the choice of wonderful shops and restaurants plus beach (without the crowds of St. Martin). Perfectly located for exploring both the island itself and for getting over the bridge to also explore the mainland.

We love the older part of the village with the flowers in the alleys. Being able to walk down to the beach and the port. Enjoying the sun-trap at the back of the house. Having a spacious sitting room to relax in once the day is over.

A LOVELY HOUSE IN A QUIET LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
It was our first visit to Il de Re. My wife and I stayed with our daughter and her two children aged ten and thirteen. The house provided everything that we needed and is very comfortable and well maintained . There is a good supply of DVDs and games that the children enjoyed. The weather was great so we ate all our meals outside on the lovely patio and made use of the barbeque. The house is ideally situated and we hired bikes from a shop just three minutes away. La Flotte is a superb place to relax and has a terrific market every day, excellent restaurants and one of the best boulangeries in France! We wish that we had booked for two weeks at least!!

LA FLOTTE, ILE DE RE

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - well maintained and clean property in ideal location for walking into town and visiting surrounding villages. Both cottage and courtyard garden very peaceful.

Enjoyed cycling round the island and eating in the nearby restaurants, particularly 'Chai nous comme chai vous'.

Would certainly recommend the property.

IDYLIC RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a wonderful holiday at the cottage. It is very well located, only a few minutes’ walk from the harbour with its shops and restaurants. Positioned well away from any main roads it is very quiet.
The cottage is light and airy and the sitting room and bedrooms are all spacious. The kitchen is well equipped and it was useful having a broadband connection along with the usual TV/ DVD etc.
We felt immediately at home and only ate out on a handful of occasions, preferring to buy the wonderful seafood from the local market and eat in. Being there late in the season we didn't get to use the garden much but it was charming nonetheless and very secluded.
La Flotte is a really nice town, along with the fantastic market there is a good range of shops and plenty of restaurants around the harbour,
As with the other reviewers, we hired bikes and spent most of our time cycling around the island visiting the many picturesque villages and beaches.

A memorable holiday, we are sure to return!

LA FLOTTE SUCCESS

  • 4 of 5
Lovely house, well positioned a few minutes from the picturesque quay with its shops, bars and restaurants. Our party of 6 enjoyed the spacious accommodation, tastefully furnished and painted white throughout inside. Very welcoming! We ate very well at the numerous restaurants, hired bicycles, barbequed and walked for miles. Even the weather was kind. We would return.

The house is situated in La Flotte on the island of Ile de Re. Ile de Re is off the Atlantic coast of France just south of the Loire. The island is reached by crossing the bridge from La Rochelle. Once you are on the island, the house is about 5 - 10 minutes drive along the northern coast of the island. Preferred mode of transport for many islanders is by bicycle although if you wish to explore the wider region around La Rochelle then hiring a car may be useful. That said, there is a lot to do on the island so we rarely bother to roam far.

La Rochelle is the nearest airport however Rochefort is also a short (40 mins) drive away. La Rochelle is also well connected to the extensive Peage system not to mention the efficient French railways.
