Vintage wheels on the Ile de Ré

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  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  – 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 .  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 and for details on how to book it, click here…
