French television has been coming live from the Ile de Ré ahead of the peak holiday season.
I didn’t manage to see it all of “Midi en France” but one show featured a trip round St Martin de Ré complete with the view from the church tower. I think I can even make out the back of our house which is a 5 minute walk from the port.
If it wets your appetite for a last minute summer booking we still have some availability. To see when, check the calendar here…
For people wanting to come by plane or train, the good news is that this summer there are two buses an hour to St Martin from La Rochelle. Some even stop at the airport.
