Right in the centre of the village, shaded by the church of Ars, this recently renovated, charming and well thought-out house with its studio, is ideal for your holiday on the Ile de Ré. The harmony of the colors alongside the mix of visible stones and modern furniture make the house an architectural success. You will also appreciate the outside terrasse which is sheltered from the wind and therefore perfect to enjoy the sun at all times. Its two seperate night-time areas and an independent annex will suit everyone. New equipments and high quality bedding highlight the assets of this pretty holiday home. Out of the peak season, Pagode can be rented for maximum 6 guests (without the annex) at a reduced price.
As you head towards the end of the island, your gaze will be drawn to the black and white church tower which is still used as a sea mark by sailors and which belongs to the church of Ars (yes it really is pronounced arse), and is the symbol of one of France’s most lovely villages. Its narrow streets lined with stone built and white washed houses and the ubiquitous hollyhocks all converge on the port and the summer market, which is possibly the best on the island.
Lying around 100m from the church, the marina is dominated by the former railway station, opposite the famous Café du Commerce, one of the trendier restaurants on the Ile de Re. The marina and harbour are accessible by a channel which slips through the salt marshes.
The salt marshes which surround the village are an invitation to long bike rides towards La Couarde via Le Martray (the narrowest point on the island), or towards Saint-Clément and Les Portes via the breathtaking nature reserve and bird sanctuary of Lilleau des Niges. Everywhere you look, magical sights await you, especially at sundown when sky, sea and salt weave together in an enchanting palette of colours.
On your way back from the beach or from a bike ride, or after wandering around the tiny streets, stop off at the church square and enjoy a coffee on the terrace of one of the cafés, and breathe in the smell of pure sea air.
