Overview

La Flotte House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom village house sleep 6, 5 mins beach, restaurants, market, bakers

A charming traditional house in la Flotte recently converted and refurbished to provide comfortable accommodation on 2 floors. The house is newly furnished and decorated and is on a very quiet village street about five minutes' walk from the market, bakery, the beach and the harbour and most of the restaurants. The house sleeps 6 and has one shower room upstairs with separate WC.

Ground floor: one very large sitting room / dining room with a kitchen in one corner, and with sliding glass doors which form a movable glass wall opening onto the little courtyard. There is garden furniture outside for al fresco dining. There is a sofa and armchairs beside the fireplace in the sitting room, a dining table with 6 chairs, and another sitting area opening onto the courtyard.

1st floor: 2 twin bedrooms, one double, shower room and separate toilet.

TV / DVD, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, oven, hob, refrigerator etc

Parking outside house

50% deposit required as confirmation of booking, remaining 50% payable 6 weeks in advance of date holiday begins. Additional £400 deposit cheque held to cover possible damage during rental of house, only cashed if needed. Guests must provide copy of own insurance to cover any more significant damage to property. Bed linen and towels available at additional charge of £20 per person per week. Key collection before 1900 on arrival day.

Our house is warm and welcoming in winter as well summer months, and Re is attractive in different ways throughout the year. Autumn in La Flotte can be warm enough for the beach, or frosty, but it is often sunny. Spring comes early, with frequent blue skies and mild sunshine. The winter can be windy and bracing, exhilarating by the sea but sheltered on forest paths or in the villages. La Flotte is delightfully quiet out of season, but most of the restaurants open on different nights, so there is usually a choice and always a warm welcome.

Charming Village

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in La Flotte in July 2009 and had a wonderful time. It is a charming village which is ideal for families with young children as it has a small selection of beaches, some lovely ice cream shops and a carousel at the end of the pier which was definitely the highlight for my two daughters (3 and 1.) There is a good selection of bars, café’s and restaurants and the vast majority were very accommodating to children. There are plenty of opportunities for walking and cycling around the island and although we had initially thought of hiring a car we decided against it as there really was no need. We went into La Rochelle a couple of times and found the bus that leaves from the centre of the village ideal.
The accommodation was very good with the main plus being its location. It was a short stroll form the centre of La Flotte which was ideal as it meant that we could easily walk into the middle, or to the beach, but it was also quiet at night time.
The house was clean and tastefully decorated. When we arrived there was some supplies left for us and the kitchen was well equipped. We had a party of 4 adults and 2 children and we all felt that the house was spacious enough for us all. The garden outside was very small but the decking ran straight from the living room outside so when the sliding doors were open my 1 year old could easily crawl out. The garden was completely enclosed so that it was very safe for my daughters to play.
The only downside was that the stairs were very steep and curved round so that even my 3 year old needed help up and down. Perhaps a stair gate would be helpful for ever adventurous toddlers?
The owners were very helpful and accommodating by letting us stay an extra night to accommodate flights, this was greatly appreciated.
I would recommend this property to friends and family and we fully intend to return in the future.

Owner's Response: We always want guests to enjoy our holiday home and are delighted when we hear that they do!
We try to provide all the basics to make life easier for a wide range of ages. We will think about adding a stair gate to baby equipment which we already provide in a convenient cupboard, which includes a high chair, booster seat, travel cot, children's table-wear, and a small selection of toys and books.

Don't rent this house

Don't rent this house

Unless you want to be disappointed - the furniture was terrible and uncomfortable - it photographs well, but the quality is very poor. The living room contains two small sofas with very thin cushions and very small chairs and two coffees tables with plastic tops. The terrace is furnished with extremely cheap furniture, which fell apart on day one and the owner at the end of the stay decided to charge us for it rather than admit there had been a lot of wear and tear already. The kitchen is not for cooks as there are very poor quality pots and pans - those guests who rent houses in France and want to take advantage of the markets and fish mongers will be disappointed in what the house offers for cooks. The owner has an odd habit of storing boxes of old crockery that seems to have come from a second hand sale. We've rented many houses in this price bracket and it was disappointing from the standards of furnishing. The beds were equally poor and combined with a plastic protective covering meant one was slipping into bed at night. We are very tidy people and the end of our stay we cleaned the house, left the linens and towels for washing and were told by the owner that we left the house so messy that her cleaners took eight hours to clean the property. The owner then charged us for this from the security deposit. When asked for photographs of the mess she didn't provide anything - so if any of you dare rent this property take photographs on leaving so that her dishonesty doesn't ruin your holiday. I should point out that I complained through this website and the owner didn't even have the courtesy to respond to the official complaint so I decided to write one for this site. One could say it is sour grapes but the friends who stayed with me know we left the house in an extremely tidy state. By the way, the house attracts mosquitoes too!

We love La Flotte it's our favourite town on the il De Re and this our second visit. The location of this property cannot be beaten, giving you a short walk to the port, restaurants and market. The property is very roomy and comfortable, with great facilities, including the bikes which were a real plus and made for a great day out

A WONDERFUL WEEK IN A PRETTY VILLAGE HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
The house is in a fantastic location - just a few minutes stroll from the marina, shops and restaurants. It is very well appointed, comfortable and stylish.
We didn't need to hire a car as the buses are good for both seeing the island and visiting La Rochelle. There are also lots of cycle paths on the island.
There are plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose from around the harbour - it's so pretty and relaxing you don't want to move!
The owners could not have been more helpful - there was a good selection of information in the house about what to do and where to go and the pre-arrival instructions were clear and easy to follow.
We would thoroughly recommend both La Flotte and this village house to our friends and we hope to return soon ourselves.

A gorgeous house in the heart of the village

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely comfortable house right in the heart of the village. It provided everything you would like on holiday. Peace and quiet and yet two rows away from the harbour. The kitchen is fairly well equipped , but if a lot of cooking is planned a casserole dish and a couple of larger saucepans would be nice.
It has a wonderful homely feel and I could have stayed forever. Am planning our return as I write this!
La flotte itself is a smashing village. It has everything.There are some tennis courts about a 2 min walk at the end of the road which are lovely. The beach is safe and clean and plenty of sand when the tide is out. The harbour is just picture postcard pretty and there are lots of lovely chafes and trestaurants to while away some time.
A toute a l' heure!!!

La Flotte is a very pretty village about 10 minutes drive from the toll bridge which connects the Ile de Re to La Rochelle on the French mainland. With year-round flights from several UK airports to La Rochelle, Re is good for holidays out of season as well as in summer, and the weather can be sunny and warm from April to October. The focus of the village is its little harbour, promenade, and sandy beach. The island can be explored on foot, by bike (on a network of dedicated cycle paths) by car or by bus; it offers a wide choice of beaches for swimming, sailing, and surfing. Each of Re's 10 villages has a different character, and the landscape also varies between farmland, vineyards, forests and salt marshes. Although the Re is a popular French holiday destination, development has been strictly controlled and the island's traditional character has been well preserved.
