In this privileged location between the village and a well preserved natural area, just 500 m from the Ocean, each house of this very intimate development of 12 houses fits harmoniously to preserve the typical landscape of Ile de Ré.
In the continuity of the picturesque village, each typical façade opens along a quiet small street or a little square. On the back side, a traditional enclosed garden offers a pleasant privacy to enjoy with family and friends.
The simplicity of the local architectural typology, its materials and its colour palette is preserved to retain the charm and simplicity of réthaises constructions: low house, with lime white render, dry stones garden walls, Roman tiles, wooden shutters painted in shades of green to grey, patios and enclosed gardens planted with holly hocks. This type of architecture is the one you will find in most of the Charente maritime villages.
It is hard not to be partial to this Island once you have spent some time there. The weather is exceptionally mild and sunny (3rd sunniest in France). There are so many things to do like cycling (over 100 km of dedicated path), sailing, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, within a rich and varied landscape made of very long sandy beaches and dunes (the beach is within walking distance to the building site), but also fields, vineyards, salt marshes with many wild birds, pine woods with rabbits and pheasants everywhere, meadows and cultivated fields ... It's fascinating that in such a tiny (25 km) island one can find so diverse landscapes. The island villages are charming too and are being renovated by urban people so with taste and discreet refinement. The capital town of Ile de Ré, St Martin de Ré is the place to find stylish restaurants and boutiques, set in a beautiful shrine of XVIIth century architecture. It's a little bit Martha's vineyard or Cape Code of the French Atlantic coast.
La Rochelle, just 17 km away, called "the white city" was founded by the Romans and has developed throughout the ages a strong and lucrative merchant activity making the town with its fortified port, its mansions, and narrow streets with arcades, the most attractive and romantic city of the Atlantic coast from Nantes to Bordeaux. La Rochelle also boasts the largest leisure port in Europe with over 3000 moorings, a lively marina, a wide range of shopping facilities and restaurants to suit all tastes. La Rochelle is also a buoyant city with a great sense of "joie de vivre" promoted by the thousands of local students as well as by the town with its famous events such as the "La Solitaire du Figaro" sailing race or the "Francofolies" music festival, and its very diverse cultural activities including some renowned museums.
