I first published this last year but given it’s Valentines we want to give more love to the Ile de Ré. For many February 14th means it has to be oysters. There are plenty of them to be had at the moment on the island. I clocked these with their special Saint Valentin box in La Flotte.
Our half hour Sunday morning walk from our house in St Martin de Ré to La Flotte certainly left us feeling peckish and there was plenty to choose from in the market. The big bonus no peak season crowds.
It’s not just about seafood. It’s amazing what they can do with pork. Great lumps of it.
I always find Sunday mornings in La Flotte market a bit of a treat and this time despite it being winter, the sun was shining.
After a coffee while watching the world go by down by the harbour, we walked back to St Martin, taking the coast route. A chance to see the migratory birds that have arrived and to just listen to the sea.
If you would like to enjoy a Sunday morning like this have a look at our Ile de Ré holiday home. Remember, the Easter holidays are sooner than you think. You can book it here.
