The other weekend when I cycled over to La Flotte to visit the market I came across this lovely parade of cars. Rather than seeing a display of those well known French brands Renault, Peugeot and Citroën, I had come across a meeting of Panhard fans. Apparantly the company last made a car in the 1960’s after being bought by Citroën. I loved the streamlined details on some of them.
It’s not the first time I have come across vintage cars on the Ile de Ré and having travelled to the island myself in a 1968 Morris Minor I was delighted to see yet more.
And here is the car that happily made the journey London – St Martin de Ré – London. It’s pictured just down the road from our house, driving round St Martin harbour.
Veteran, vintage or modern all are welcome on the Ile de Ré. Though it’s always best to park your car and get on a bike to see the island at its finest. To see more of our house in St Martin de Ré and for details on how to book it, click here…
