“Fabulous & Great Value Villa”
Reviewed September 16, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I've stayed at this place twice now and feel compelled to write a review. It's a fabulous villa with sea views, a huge garden, sun terrace and lovely open plan kitchen/diner/living room. La Flotte is a fantastic place to make your base while you explore the Ile de Re and Rue de la Cote is a haven to call 'home' on your holiday. The villa itself is spacious with three double bedrooms but the real draw is the large sun terrace and the location. The sun terrace has sun beds, a large dining table and a retractable sun canopy for the hotter days. The villa itself is literally over the road from the sea and only a five minute walk into town (if that) so it's a nice blend of being close in (close enough for a morning swim!) but far enough away from the hustle and bustle. Another bonus is how clean it felt when we arrived, and the homely touches - lovely sofas, cushions and pictures on the walls only added to the experience. It's hard to fault this place and we will be back, likely with our new puppy in tow next year as they accept dogs too! Also importantly, it's really great value compared to some of the other, pricier places on the island. :)

“Great house - thoughtful owner”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I would echo all other reviews: excellent house: thoughtfully put together, easy to navigate backed up by great instructions ...and delightfully situated close to the water and short walk to the harbor and market. David, the owner, has made some obvious upgrades to the property and it seems to me that he approached everything from the point of view of making it easy for the short term visitor to enjoy their time and not worry to much about the house. It was our first time on Il de Re and it is a wonderful island. La Flotte seems the most balanced of the Il de Re communities in terms of scale, amenities and general charm so it was an added plus to be close to the heart of things!

It was 20 years since we had been to the Ile de Re and this time we were travelling with three young children (8,6 and 4). The island and property definately lived up to our expectations.

The property is very spacious with a well maintained and gated garden but just a short walk from the harbour restaurants and beach. The location couldn't have been better for us and as the island is totally geared up for cycling so you are never too far away from anything.

We found the owner very helpful when booking and the information pack sent out provided great tips whilst on holiday.

Getting on and off the island on changeover day is a bit of a nightmare but this didn't detract from what was a great and relaxing family holiday.

“What a Fantastic holiday home”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

2 Rue de la Côté is a marvellous home from home , so well thought out , an ideal base to relax . It is well designed, with both in and outdoor areas, spacious rooms and extremely well equipped. It's location is great within a large well tended garden , views of the sea, easy strolls along the sea front to the market and port and only a short drive from the airport.

Ile de Ré is quite a magical place . . a calmness pervades . Hire bikes to explore, the cycle routes are flat and well signposted.

Our family group ranged from four months to 60 plus, we all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. . . Only regret. . . That we didn't book to stay longer. . . Next time.

We are a family of 5 with three girls aged 9, 14 and 16

We had a great week in this house which lived up to its description. It is pleasant and well equipped and very well located aweigh an easy walk to beach, market and restaurants. There is a decent sized garden and a nice terrace where we enjoyed most of our meals

The owner was easy to deal with and provided copious information on how to get the best out of our stay in Ile de Re

“Ideally located, spacious and comfortable”
Reviewed September 18, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This is a lovely spacious, light and comfortable house with a large terrace with a surprisingly large pretty garden, ideal for canine members of the family. Private parking is a bonus. The house is ideally located in La Flotte with views of the sea and is close to shops, restaurants and a great daily market.

This is very much an island for cycling with many dedicated cycle paths, so is very safe. However if you need to use the car, parking around the island is very good.

St Martin is nearby which is a larger port with many cafes/restaurants and shops.

If you love fish, this is definitely the place to be!

We had a lovely relaxing holiday and were sad to leave. Will certainly be back.
