Stretching Summer on the Ile de Ré

139 Sunday afternoon on the Ile de Ré.  It looks lovely.  Even better is that it is a Sunday in late September.  A Sunday so warm you can go swimming in the sea at 6pm.  It hit 28 celsius the afternoon these pictures were taken. 154We had friends over from London.  They got a breakfast time Ryanair flight from Stanstead and were at our house in St Martin de Ré before 11am.  A quick walk to the bike rental shop and we were off to a brocante in La Flotte.140We found a Le Creuset baking dish for 50 cents and then stopped for moules frites and a glass of rose in the sunshine.  Next stop the beach. Despite the sun it was far from packed.165Imagine the delight of our friends.  Just a few hours after leaving London they were lying on the sand topping up their tans.  September on the Ile de Ré is like this most years.  Days of temperatures around 28 celsius and of course the kids are back at school.  Ideal for a quiet sunshine break at low season rates. 164To find out more about renting our holiday home on the Ile de Ré click here…,vacances,iledere,st-martin-de-re,maison-de-pays/0312.html
