One-Off Feature

Situated in a quiet residential area of La Couarde, one of the 10 charming villages of the beautiful Ile de Ré in France, and just 300 metres from the beach, Maison de Charme is the perfect setting for a truly relaxing holiday amongst the vineyards, villages, salt marshes and golden beaches of this unspoilt island.

General Info

Entirely refurbished and newly equipped, this tastefully furnished and exquisitely decorated house offers tranquil accommodation just 300 metres from the beach. Peaceful pastel colours and typical Ile de Ré charm make this a uniquely stylish and spacious holiday home, and La Couarde, with its typical flowered and narrow streets, is a colourful resort with a village atmosphere. Enjoy breakfast croissants on the patio, unwind with a glass of wine on the deck terrace, or hire a bike and discover the many treasures of this stunning (and largely car-free) island.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

The house is located in La Couarde, an authentic Ile de Ré village on the south coast of the island, and on your doorstep you will find golden beaches, restaurants and boutiques, a lovely church and a delightful bandstand where concerts are still held in the summer. Altogether, there are 10 pretty villages on the Ile de Ré, all of which can be explored by bike (available for hire locally). Over 60 miles of bike paths will take you across the island, through vineyards and fields of potatoes, and along invigorating coastal routes, with views of the salt marshes and open sea. Water sports enthusiasts will enjoy windsurfing, kite-surfing, catamaran, jet ski and boating (tuition and hire are available in season), and further afield, you might like to spend a day exploring historic La Rochelle and Rochefort. The Aquarium in La Rochelle is well worth a visit.
