Î L E D E R É
July 2019 Island freak discovers ‘new’ island.
Ten small villages with charming white houses and colored schutters and doors.
Sandy beaches with a big difference between high and low tide.
Saltfields connecting the different parts of the island.
... and the same number of sunshine hours as in the South of France.
* This is Île de Ré, also called l’Île Blanche! *
A French island in the Atlantic ocean. Connected to La Rochelle on the mainland with this bridge.
[ La Rochelle ]
Avoid busy month August and easy living is guaranteed on Ré! Drink an espresso in the morning at a local bar (we loved La Tour du Sénéchal), cycle to the market for your daily groceries, look for beautiful stones on the beach, eat a crêpe, ride the waves or learn to sail.
My must-see/ must-shoot highlights:
The port of Saint-Marie
The beaches near Portes-en-Ré and Flotte (La Cible)
What are you doing granny? ;0)
The streets of Ars, La Flotte, Saint-Martin and La Couarde.
The churchtower of Ars
The staircase, the view and the adjacent beach of The lighthouse of Whales.
I can still hear the crickets, smell the salty air, taste the oysters and feel the tickling of the hay. Au revoir Ré. Nous nous rencontrerons à nouveau!
