SUPERB SEASIDE LOCATION ON ILE DE RE, HOLIDAY VILLAGE WITH POOL

La Flotte House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom house for 6 in holiday village, heated pool, near beaches

Les Hauts de Cocraud, built in 1996, with its heated swimming pool, is in a marvelous location just 100 metres from the sea and its characteristic oyster beds, and just 1km from a sandy beach and the picturesque little harbor of La Flotte, reputedly one of the most beautiful villages in France. This is a simple holiday village, comprising 92 terraced, whitewashed houses, built in the island's traditional architectural style, each with its own enclosed courtyard. Children are well provided for with an outdoor heated swimming pool and a large grassed play area with climbing frame and table tennis. The village is completely pedestrianized, creating a safe and peaceful environment which is particularly appreciated by young families. A great base from which to visit lovely Ile de Re.

La Flotte: La Flotte presents an interesting contrast, between the beautiful residences aligned along the quays and the labyrinth of the small houses in the interior lanes, where you will also find the wonderful, medieval market hall, tempting you with the most mouthwatering array of local produce.

Formerly a fishing village,La Flotte, was formed around the castle of Mauléons, close to the current church. Little by little, it grew around its developing port in the 18th century under Louis XV. The trade and the exchanges were very prosperous there, as the beautiful houses on the avenue Felix Faure will testify.

The church Sainte Catherine’s bell-tower reminds us that before trains, trading ships made stopovers here: Norwegians, Dutchmen, Spaniards and even Americans came to buy the famous Ile de Re salt, brandy, vinegar... The characteristic pier goes back to 1840; it extends its superb circular arm of over 200 metres long, with a 9 metre high lighthouse at its end, visible from 15km away.

Spa treatments: While in Les Hauts de Cocraud you can take advantage of the SPA centre “Relais Thalasso Ile de Ré”. The top quality of sea water, the wonderfully pure air and atmosphere saturated with iodine, the mild climate from January to December and the high number of sunshine hours are the reasons why Thalassotherapy has naturally developed in the island. Thalassotherapy refers to the simultaneous use – with the objective of preventing or curing, and under doctor’s supervision – of sea environment to enhance overall health: seawater, seaweed, marine muds, sands and any other substance extracted from the sea.

Ideal for relieving, relaxing, revitalizing, slimming down, toning up, reshaping… a Thalassotherapy cure always has beneficial effects and you will return home fully rested and refreshed! Here the most prestigious, high-performing and innovative centres have found the most favored conditions to provide well-being and relaxation.

More Details

Details for Suite 6 pers Hauts de Cocraud 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6

The duplex house for 4 to 6 people is 50 m², is centrally heated and is simply furnished with all the essentials. On the ground floor, is a living room with a trundle sofa-bed for 2 people, a dining table and chairs, a TV and a fire-place. There is a kitchenette equipped with hot plates, fridge, mini oven or micro wave, dishwasher, crockery and cutlery for 6 people. Just a word of advice: the kitchen equipment is very French so you will have a coffee making machine and espresso cups but no kettle (although this can be requested from reception) and we recommend you bring your own mug unless you are happy to do it like the locals and drink your morning tea from a bowl! On the first floor there is 1 bedroom with 2 single beds, 1 bedroom with bunk beds and 1 bathroom with a bath and shower hose. The toilet is separate and is on the ground floor. Every house has a private courtyard with garden furniture, a great place to relax over a coffee or an evening aperitif as the sun goes down.

  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • pets considered
Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a fabulous time on the island of Ile de Re. The Hauts de Cocraud accommodation was ideal for our needs: well equipped, clean and, importantly, secure for our young children. The staff were entirely welcoming and helpful. And the facilities ideal for those days of relaxation away from those energy sapping cycle paths!!! Many thanks. We shall return.

Good location about half mile from centre of La Flotte and close to cycle path network.
Appartments were a bit tired - would have been good 20 years ago - could do with general upgrade. Cooking facilities limited.
Not much opportunity to meet other holidaymakers.
Pool excellent, staff very friendly and helpful.
On site restaurant good value.

Accommodation was basic but clean. No double beds. Pool is lovely, no life gaurd. On site restaurant very reasonable with good food. All staff in resort were very friendly and helpful.
2 minute cycle to the beautiful village centre of La Flotte. About 2km from the nearest supermarket. Hire bikes on the first day and forget about the car!
I would recommend it and would return.

Les Hauts de Cocraud is ideally situated alongside a water sports centre and within an easy walk of a sandy beach and the charming harbor and shops of picturesque La Flotte en Ré, reputedly one of the most beautiful villages in France. The watersports centre provides sailing and sand-yachting courses for all levels or, if you prefer, you can simply hire equipment for catamaran sailing, dinghy sailing, windsurfing or sea kayaking. Les Hauts de Cocraud is a great base from which to enjoy the island's lovely beaches and charming seaside towns, with the delightful and cosmopolitan St Martin en Re just a few kilometres away. Ile de Re hardly rises above sea level so cycling is an excellent and extremely popular way to explore.

La Rochelle airport is only 10 kilometres away so it is quite possible to spend a holiday here without a car.

Other Activities: thalassotherapy.
