Villa Isabelle, our Ile de Re accommodation, is situated in a quiet area of La Flotte en Re, reputedly one of the most beautiful villages in France, on the north side of the island.

The village of La Flotte has beautiful houses lining the pretty port, quaysides and harbour. Both here and in the village centre are many pedestrian streets. Stroll around the narrow streets of the centre!

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.

Do not miss the daily indoor markets of the old market hall. Then sit back outside a café and watch the world go by!

Do not miss either the medieval market and then visit the Maison du Platin dedicated to the various agricultural and maritime activities of the island.

Formerly a small village of fishermen, the village of la Flotte en Re was formed around the castle of Mauleons, 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 the trains, the 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 15 kms away.

Here is some information on the market, shops and restaurants in la Flotte en Re:

Our 6 person villa Isabelle is an excellent choice for your Ile de Re holidays.

Situated less than 10km from La Rochelle on the west coast of France, Ile de Re is connected to the mainland by an elegant 3km toll bridge.

With a coastline stretching some 70km, Ile de Re is made up of ten villages, where the traditional architecture of the region prevails. The little low houses, whitewashed walls, blue or green shutters and a riot of colourful hollyhocks typify this charming island.

The weather in Ile de Re is very reliable, usually warm and sunny; the island boasts a sunshine record more or less equal to the Côte d'Azur on the Mediterranean.

To truly appreciate this enchanting island, you need to relax, move down a gear, and leave your car parked up. La Couarde, Le Bois plage, St Martin, La Flotte, Ste Marie, Saint Clement des Baleines, Ars en Re, Rivedoux...all can be visited on your bike for example. A network of over 100km of flat cycle tracks means that all the family can discover the villages, beaches, forests and salt marshes at a leisurely pace and for the most part, well away from the roads. From your Ile de Re villa, little fishing and yachting harbours, village markets, eco-museums and bird sanctuaries are all easily accessible by bike. For your Ile de Re bike rentals, there are numerous cycle hire shops with all manner of two and three wheeled inventions to transport even the very young, and no hill is over 19m above sea level.

Villa Isabelle, our Ile de Re accommodation, is located on the North side of the island, at la Flotte en Re, a lovely small port town with a lively daily food market. Every facility you need is in walking distance including a charming beach and a fine selection of restaurants.
