Why the Ile de Ré?
Stylish & spacious villa with pool & lovely private garden
Villa Sainte Marie is a simply fabulous villa by the sea. The smell of sea air, pine trees, a beach at the end of the garden, quiet location, lots of space and privacy, a big heated pool, covered dining area, your own piste for playing boules, good-sized garden, wifi, light, modern & unpretentious living areas, very comfortable bedrooms, quality bathrooms, all bright, nicely decorated & well-equipped - quite a list!
The villa comes in two parts - the main house consisting of three bedrooms, kitchen & living areas, and an adjacent annex with two bedrooms, both with ensuite bathrooms and having direct garden access.
The décor is modern, tasteful, and features the typical Ile de Ré blues, greys and greens.
Main house (single-storey):
The main living area overlloks the garden via two sets of French doors, and consists of:
• spacious sitting area seating five by the fire
• reading corner with large sofa, plus games table for two
• modern, open-plan kitchen, well-equipped, with dining table seating 8
The bedrooms are all at ground floor level too:
• parental suite with bed 160, shower room and WC en suite
• double room with bed 160
• double room with two single beds
• bathroom with shower and bath
• separate WC
The annex runs perpendicular to the main house (on the right if facing the house), next to the swimming pool (separated by a low stone wall). It has two good quality en-suite bedrooms, each with its own private shower room and WC, one with a double bed and the other with two single beds.
The garden is exceptional, a lovely size, an attractive stone wall giving lots of privacy. Half is a grassed area with several trees and mature plants, plus private piste for playing boules, the other half (nearest the house) comprises:
The icing on the cake, the beach: less than a minute's walk away - through the gate at the bottom of the garden, over the road, down a small path that crosses the dune.
Three double bedrooms (2x 160cm beds, 1 with 140cm bed), two twin bedrooms (both with 2x 90 x 190cm beds)
3 ensuite shower rooms, each with WC, plus shared bathroom
10m x 5m heated pool, protected by electric cover
No pets and no smoking please
Villa Sainte Marie is located in a lovely residential area called Les Grenettes, about 3kms from Sainte Marie de Ré proper, 1.5 kms from Sainte-Marie-La-Noue where the nearest shops & restaurants are. The local beach is literally across the road - it's more rocky than sandy and fabulous for a high-tide swim in clear waters. The nearest sandy stretch (also a surf spot) is only a 250m walk north along the coast path.
