Getting ready for summer on the Ile de Ré

Yes the sky really is this blue on the Ile de Ré.  Now we are into April there are plenty more days like this every week.  You might still think twice about swimming but that doesn’t mean you can’t go in the water.

If zipping up a wet suit isn’t you, then the warm spring sunshine is ideal for a long walk along the coast.

These pictures are taken midweek in the morning.  This time of year the beaches are close to empty.  These shots include La Couarde and Bois Plage, all a short cycle ride from our holiday home in St Martin de Ré.

We still have some availability in late July and August.  Otherwise, late September and early October are always good times to be on the island. It can feel like you are stretching the summer. It’s just a short hop on the bus or by taxi from La Rochelle Airport or train station.

There’s more information about our house and a booking calender here. You can also book via Airbnb.
