Why Ile de Ré?

A chic and understated island destination connected by bridge from La Rochelle. Known for a lovely climate and authentically French, almost Mediterranean, feel. Dotted with charming harbour towns and character villages, connected by an extensive network of cycle trails with criss-crosses the island through fields & vineyards, woodland and salt-marshes. It offers something for everyone: markets, boutiques, watersports (esp. sailing, surfing, paddle-boarding, kite-surfing), markets & food halls, fantastic choice of restaurants.  And now part of Nouvelle Aquitaine, where it belongs!
