ILE DE RE

half day 4.30 hours
from La Rochelle

Description

Departure is from your port of call with your driver and an English speaking guide to Ile de Ré by freeway.

This is a popular European tourist destination. In the wintertime there are 16,000 residents, but when summer arrives that number swells tenfold.

People love Ile de Ré because it gets the same amount of sunshine as the south of France, and enjoys a constant light breeze. That is perfect for water-sport lovers.
The island reminds a lot New England, but it’s a bit more casual.
The summer weather is similar too: warm days, cool evenings. The island is divided into 10 communes (villages).

From east to west: Rivedoux-Plage, La Flotte-en-Ré, Sainte-Marie-de-Ré, Saint-Martin-de-Ré, Le Bois-Plage-en-Ré, La Couarde-sur-Mer, Loix, Ars-en-Ré, Saint-Clément-des-Baleines, and Les Portes-en-Ré.
