Another great stay at Flocon de Sel. A warm welcome was followed by thoughtful guidance and help throughout our stay from Isabelle and Ian. The weather was great and we thoroughly enjoyed running around the beach path, cycling through the vineyards, exploring the local markets (Bois-Plage is particularly excellent), learning to windsurf and paddle board at the La Courade lake...

Lovely accommodation- perfectly clean, spacious and very attractive. Isabelle was the perfect host- warm and friendly and very helpful. House location was ideal- walking distance to 2 boulangeries and several cafes. Easy to cycle to La Flotte and beyond. Outdoor space great for a family and we all loved the pool- even in the rain. It was our first trip...

Can cycle to all the main areas in the middle/east of the island. Private, secluded, secure and quiet location despite being very close to the centre of the village and a short stroll to a good bakery, restaurant, butchers and bike rental. Great heated pool - large and clean, and very well-equipped throughout. Only slight drawbacks were that the second...

About the neighbourhood
Ile de Ré, off La Rochelle is linked to the mainland by a bridge. It offers an idealized version of French life. Cars are in the minority; most people use the cycle paths that criss-cross the island’s vineyards, pine forests and salt flats. Ile de Ré salt is now predictably fashionable in gastro circles. The ice cream is hand made and the glorious sandy beaches - all open to the public - are well suited to shrimping and picnics.

The house is on the outskirts of St Marie de Ré, in a village called La Noue. It is a quiet, secluded and tranquil setting, home to an incredible variety of plant and bird life. The village has its own produce market, offering high quality fresh fish and locally farmed oysters, cheese and patisserie. Everything is within walking distance including two restaurants...
