The île de Ré is a picturesque island located south of Brittany, in the Atlantic Ocean, off the beautiful city of La Rochelle. A bridge links the island to the mainland. The climate is pleasant due to the presence of the Gulf Stream. Summers are warm and sunny.
The island is famous for oysters and ideal for bike enthusiasts.
Our home is located in the "North " part of the island. We are close to the ocean. Ars en Re est un des plus beaux villages de France!

The kitchen was redesigned last spring. We do have a great new stove, induction top, Nespresso machine and counter space.
The house is furnished and decorated with taste.
The 3 beds are new, with the option of sheets.
We have a TV, Wifi, a CD player.
In the summer, the outdoor pool is open, but there is also a heated indoor pool in the thalassotherapy centre always open.
The beach is 100m down the road. It's a wonderful beach for young children to play and build sand structures. The beach La Conche , near St clement, is the one for swimming!
Beautiful sunsets and walks are steps away!
Ars is a beautiful village one can explore on bikes or by foot. Either way, it's wonderful!
Lots of restaurants and interesting stores, a beautiful harbour, small venelles to get lost in!

A lovely house in a super location - our family of 4 had a wonderful time. We biked everywhere and had far too many oysters. A relaxed, safe and very friendly atmosphere everywhere we went.

We have been in the house for the second time and again enjoyed it very much. The garden/patio is very private and perfect to hang around. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. It is obvious that the owners love cooking, what makes it easy for the guests as well. John and Thérèse are easy to communicate with, and they have organized a helpful soul and support directly in Ars en Ré who always was there in time when we had an appointment. I can warmly recommend the house.

We have just spent a lovely 10 days at this property in Ars en re. The house was as described and in a great location close to the beach and a short walk/ bike ride into Ars town. Valerie was an excellent host and showed us all we needed to know. The pool was close and great for our children. Overall we loved the house, Ars and Ile de Re.

Andrew, We are very happy to hear that you had a lovely stay in our house, and that you enjoyed Ars and the Island very much! The pool is certainly an asset, specially with younger children as is the proximity of the beach/ocean. Have a great summer, Therese and John
