In the very centre of the village, this traditional Ile de Re house has been tastefully restored for a combination of comfort & charm. The port, market and restaurants are only 200 metres from this holiday cottage. The garage for car and bicycles is very convenient but the real plus is the south facing garden with the heated pool equipped with a movable floor. When the floor of the pool is fully raised, the pool becomes a real terrace which allows for a larger garden and the complete safety of young children
Rated amongst the most beautiful villages in France, La Flotte remains faithful to the typical image of the Ile de Ré. Sheltered from the ocean by the Pertuis Breton, its port, like that of Saint-Martin, faces the Vendée coast.
La Flotte en Re was once an important fishing and seaport and the vestiges of that time can still be seen in the magnificent dwellings that surround the port. Twisting roads and alleyways, lined with the omnipresent hollyhocks complete the décor.
In La Flotte, the holiday lets we have available are never far from the port as well as near the other treasure of this village – the medieval and very lively market place. This oldest market on the island will enchant you with its medieval arches sheltering a whole host of stands, its cobbles and the old tiles of its rooftops. You’ll have no difficulty finding here all the produce of which the island is so proud: oysters, salt, potatoes, pineau…
If it’s the ocean that you prefer, take the opportunity to explore the coastline from the Fort de La Prée at the eastern extremity of La Flotte, past the ruined abbey of the Châteliers, past the village and out the other end, along the coastal path complete with sailing club, oyster farmers and bunkers left over from the Second World War.
