Those who rent houses on the Ile de Ré are, for the most part, city-dwellers, who dream of spending their holidays beside the sea, breathing in fresh air, napping in the garden and spending evenings around the barbecue with their friends.
A garden is an essential element of a rental property, as the majority of clients want to be outside on the Ile de Ré as much as possible, to provide a contrast to their life the rest of the time, stuck in the four walls of an apartment or office.
A courtyard may be sufficient in the highly sought-after villages of La Couarde, Saint Martin or La Flotte. However, in villages such as Rivedoux, St Clément or Sainte Marie, a courtyard would not be enough and the absence of a garden may become a serious obstacle to rental requests on the Ile de Ré.
The garden is, then, a big plus point for clients looking to come to the Ile de Ré for outdoor living and fresh air.
This page shows a large range of houses with gardens, and with or without swimming pool.
Take a deep refreshing breath: you’re on the Ile de Ré!
