Cooking on the Ile de Ré

We watched this on TV last night.  If you’ve never heard of Les carnets de Julie, basically Julie drives around France in her vintage red car looking for the best in food. You can see her on France 3.

The episode shows you much of what is good about the Ile de Ré.  The coast, the salt marshes, cycling and of course the food. Bon appétit!

Ile de Ré by Drone

I saw this video by Etienne D. on YouTube the other day and it brought back lots of memories of being on the Ile de Ré and travelling around the island.

It also made me realise there are things I’ve never done on the Ile de Ré.  For instance how magical must it be sailing on a yacht round the island.

Anyway, enjoy the video while thinking of 2016 holiday plans.
