FERRY & HOTEL
Hotel la Marée, Ile de Ré
France > Poitou Charentes > ILE DE RE
With its temperate climate, long sandy beaches and unique character and charm, the Ile de Ré is a popular holiday destination all year round although unsurprisingly its visitor numbers increase quite significantly in July and August. Its safe shallow waters and golden sands are very child friendly or, for the more active, cycling is a great way to discover this lovely island with its salt pans, oyster farms and colourful harbours. The lovely Hotel la Marée is opposite the beach in Rivedoux and has a fantastic view of the impressive 3k long bridge that links the island to the mainland (toll payable). With its heated outdoor pool (Apr-Sept) which can be covered in cooler weather, pleasant bedrooms, tea room and seafront terrace restaurant (separate management), this is truly an idyllic place to stay. Hotel parking approx. 10€/night.
