Our first time to Ile de Re and a short flight from Manchester to La Rochelle airport. Small and friendly airport which we passed through in under 15 minutes! Silvie organised a private taxi which was waiting for us on our arrival, a short transfer and we were at our house within 20 minutes. Excellent location we had the beach 50 metres away, bus stop 5 minute walk, shops and market 10 minute walk and we only needed a taxi once for the whole week. Buses were regular and inexpensive however they can be late, busy and a little unreliable. Fun Bike hire was a ten minute walk away and we hired bikes for the whole family for three days, they were really friendly, English speaking and couldn't be more helpful. We cycled to La Flotte and St Martin where there are beautiful shops and restaurants. We had a special family dinner at Hotel de Torois in St Martin which we can highly recommend if the budget will stretch. Our house was perfect and very thoughtfully designed with complimentary wine and biscuits on arrival. A great holiday, we will brush up on our French next time as this island is popular with the Parisians and you need to have a good grasp of French if you want to get the most out of your stay. Merci Silvie and we hope your father gets better soon. Breda, Guy and family x
Both the villa and Ile De Re are fabulous. The accommodation is very spacious, well equipped and maintained to a very high standard. Excellent swimming pool with comfortable loungers in a lovely garden. Plenty of interesting little spaces ideal for hide and seek. We made ample use of the excellent barbecue with plenty of high quslty fresh produce on the doorstep. Altogether perfect for a three generation holiday with the pool table providing for fierce competition throughout the week!
And all this just a step away from the big sandy beach. Walk past the refreshment kiosk and right under the underpass to arrive in super Rivedoux Plage with the daily market, boulangerie, charcuterie, bars, restaurant, supermarket and cycle hire.
Try the Creperie in Rivedoux Plage or for more choice and an excellent sunset cross over to the North side with a couple of excellent restaurants looking out to sea.
We were glad not to have a hire car. The island is designed for cycling and walking; or to venture further try the hop on hop off 1€ bus service.
A visit to La Flotte is a must for great harbourside restaurants, ice cream and holiday shopping. And even more of the same at St Martin where an obligatory climb up the ancient clock tower gives great views across Ile De Re as far as the magnificent Bridge to the main land. We loved the superb Marine restaurant here.
Next stop along is Le Boue which appears to be the most popular beach with a very good children's playground.
All in all a beautiful holiday island. There are no amusement arcades and little evidence of lively night life but everybody is friendly, helpful and appear determined to make everybody's holiday as enjoyable as possible.
Thanks to Sylvie and Emily for your kind hospitality at Villa Rhea.
Great house in a perfect location. 30 meters to the beach
We stayed in this house for a week during August 2018 and had a great holiday. We have visited the island several times and this is the best property we have found. Excellent all round.
Excellent accommodation and very helpful owner. We had a marvellous time and would love to go back! Everything was close at hand, and both the beach and the garden/swimming pool were great for the children.
Je vous remercie. Au plaisir de vous revoir. En plus vous avez pu bénéficier d'un très beau temps.
Exceptional villa in great location
Our first visit to Il De Re.The villa was exceptional ,every thing you needed was available and the quality first class. We will definitely make a return visit.
Beautiful and immaculate
A wonderful place to stay with a lovely pool. The villa is located conveniently just next to the beach too. My husband and I and our 1.5 year old daughter enjoyed ourselves and the property’s modern secure facilities
