Perfectly nestled in the very centre of Les Portes, 300 metres from the sandy beaches, this very recently built villa has been designed by one of the leading architects on the Ile de Re. The house is beautifully finished, with high quality furnishings and fittings. The style is modern but extremely comfortable and warm. The layout have been conceived to make the most of the special light for which the Ile de Re is famed. In front of the living room, the large terrace is ideal for al fresco dining and overlooking the pool, flowers and trees of the landscaped garden. The villa "Octave" can be entirely rented or can be rented, out of the high season, to only 8 guests (in 4 bedrooms) at an adapted tariff.
Last but by no means least, Les Portes is the furthest village from the bridge to the mainland and has a reputation as an exclusive retreat for celebrities and rich Parisians – Charles Aznavour sings a famous song about the forest of Trousse Chemise which hides the beach of the same name in the north western corner of the island.
Now one of the most exclusive villages, Les Portes was once one of the poorest, home to many salt farmers.
A quiet haven, it has remained, like all the villages on the island, a lovely place to wander through narrow streets and alley ways admiring the local architecture and the variety of flowers at the roadside. You might come across the Redoute chapel which was once and powder magazine on your way to the village square with its famous cafés and summer market.
If Les Portes has always been a source of inspiration for artists, it’s because everything is perfect and perfectly unchanged: from the beauty of the ocean and the long, wild beaches, to the purity of the wide open spaces, from the authentic whitewashed cottages to the pine filled forests.
The nautical centre, the surfing spots, the 9-hole golf course opposite the nature reserve, will ensure you enjoy your holidays in a sporting atmosphere surrounded by nature in the form of the salt marshes, bird sanctuary, and endless beaches: Trousse Chemise, le Lizay, Petit-Bec, le banc du Bûcheron – you’ll come to realize that these names are synonymous with white sands and clear waters.
