About the property

La Maison aux Volets Verts

Relax and enjoy the perfect blend of tranquility and holiday experience in your newly refurbished vacation home or studio on the Ile de Ré. With a short walk to the beach or to the city center of Le Bois-Plage-en-Ré there are many ways to enjoy your day.

You can relax in a bright and spacious house with a garden. There is an outside shower (by the main house) that you can use for cooling off after sunbathing or swimming and you can prepare regional delicacies on the brick BBQ. The little house next door also has its own BBQ area and garden. Your vehicles are protected inside a gated area.

The beach is very quiet and located behind the dunes at the end of the road between two public sections of beach and is less frequented since it can only be reached by the residents.

Freshly baked croissants and baguettes for breakfast are just a few minutes away with a short walk to the city center.

A small supermarket is located before the market hall. Fresh fish, fresh fruits, vegetables and a variety of cheeses and other regional products are offered there.

During the tourist season the streets are filled with market stands. This is where artists, craftsmen and merchants sell their goods.

In small shops there are handmade soaps, jams and chutneys, clothing, furnishings and beautiful keepsakes which will remind you of your vacation for a long time.

There are small cafe bars which may easily persuade you to have a second breakfast, a typical French experience.

The island is well developed for cyclists and if you enjoy biking you will receive as many impressions as there are tones of white colored houses.

There are pine forests, vineyards, farmland and salt ponds which spread out like patch-work across the flat grass lands and there is a different beach on every shore.

Each location on the island has its own flair. You will discover streets lined with hollyhocks.

You can visit small art workshops in courtyards or restaurants and ice cream parlors near the sea.

Take time to marvel at yachts and cutters in the port or climb the lighthouse on the north-western tip of the island.

There is so much to admire, discover and enjoy.

Be welcome.

Impressions From Our Friends

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately a last minute change of plans made it impossible to join our friends on this vacation, so this review is based on their comments made to us. This is "a most perfect house," the house is larger than it appears in the photos, very tastefully outfitted, wonderful paintings by the artist owner and that sense is reflected throughout. There is a glass roofed room which allows light and views into the house and a lovely garden. Our friends could not have been more pleased and we're so sorry we could not join them but have every intention of making plans to rent this house again in the near future.

Une situation parfaite!

  • 4 of 5

C'est déjà le deuxième été que nous revenons au même endroit, avec toujours autant de plaisir: la location est bien équipée, et extrêmement bien placée, proche des commerces (boulangerie, supérette, marché...) et de la mer. C'est un vrai luxe de pouvoir aller à la plage à pieds avec de jeunes enfants. Et les jours de vent, on entend le bruit des vagues depuis le jardin...

The house is situated in a quiet location very close to the beach. The city center has a bakery, a wide variety of small shops and cafes and a daily market during the season which can be easily reached in just a few minutes.

The surrounding of the island can be explored either by bike or by car. Artist galleries and flea markets invite you to look around. You can watch "Fleur de SEL" being made and purchased directly from the producer.
