Why TOWNSEND Anne chose Rivedoux-Plage

My family being from Ile de Ré, and having enjoyed it so much in my youth, I propose the discovery of Rivedoux to share this happiness.

What makes this house unique

Two years ago, I fell for this little house which was in a bad state. I had guessed that it could become lovely and cosy.

Now, it's done and my travellers seem delighted. As it's a few steps from the seshore and has a very good exposure, the Ostreane is perfect for nice holidays.

This was our second holiday, staying in L'Ostreane, and it will not be our last !

It is perfect in so many ways, obviously location, and only two mins walk to the is extremely comfortable, sunny, south and west facing aspect, fully equiped and very well maintained and clean ....the village of Rivedoux, an easy walk, with restaurants, shops, and a good market.

You will receive a very warm welcome , from Anne Townsend, the owner, who takes great pleasure and pride in L'Ostreane

I am sure you will enjoy your stay there, as much as we do !

A very comfortable and attractive gite.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely warm welcome from the owner Anne, to her very attractive Gite, all so well presented, spotlessly clean and very well equiped..

we had, with our labrador Jasper, a wonderful two weeks here......good restaurants and shops all close by only a short walk, and the highlight, a lovely long sandy beach, two minutes walk away......we had a car, but renting bicycles would be a great option.

We are already looking forward to a return holiday here !

Excellent house on a lovely island.

  • 5 of 5

We had a short flight from Southampton, into La Rochelle airport. We hired a car and following a very short drive across the toll bridge we arrived at Ostreane.

We had a lovely greeting from the owner Mrs Townsend. The house was light and airy and very clean. The small patio garden was a little sun trap, and great to sit and have meals. The kitchen was very well equipped with all we could need. The lounge / diner was comfortable with a couple of small sofas a chair and a table for 4. The TV was in French with no English channels, but this was no problem as we spent the evenings exploring the local villages and ports. The week we went there was something on nearly every night at one village or another. The house has a parking area and a handy store for you to put your hire bikes away at night. You have to hire a bike to explore the island, the cycle paths are excellent and numerous. Bikes are so popular you will have a job to find a post to lock it up when you get to your destination.

I would like to thank Annie Townsend for a lovely holiday on a beautiful island, and for the charming little home she has there.

A lovely house in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Ostreane! The house is spotlessly clean, comfortable and seems to have been recently decorated. All of the applicances are new and everything works perfectly. The little garden is a lovely place to sit in the afternoons and the beach really is only a 4 min walk around the corner. We already want to return!

Tolles Haus, das keine Wünsche offen lässt.

  • 5 of 5

Wir wurden bei unserer Ankunft von Anne vor dem Häuschen empfangen und nach dem Urlaub auch wieder verabschiedet. Die Vermieterin ist sehr nett und hat sich bei Rückfragen sofort gemeldet und immer ihre Hilfe angeboten. Das Haus selbst ist mit allem Komfort eingerichtet. Es fehlt an nichts. Beispielsweise gibt es mehrere gute Edelstahlpfannen und nicht, wie so oft, zerkratzte Teflonpfannen. Auch die Matrazen sind super. Wir haben selten so gut geschlafen. Das Einzuge, was mich an dem Urlaub gestört hat, ist, dass an fast allen Stränden keine Hunde erlaubt sind. Aber dafür kann die Vermieterin auch nichts.

By car from the north, take the motorway towards Bordeaux and leave it when you see the direction of La Rochelle and finally the direction of Ile de Ré by the wonderful bridge. From La Rochelle railway station : take line 3 stopping à Rivedoux, 10 min. from the house by foot.

Bike hire for cycling all through the island, many nautical sports, horse riding on the beach great walks by the sea, or in the woods.

Old fortifications can be visited.
