Ile de Ré



An uncut jewel off the west coast of France, joined to the historic fishing town of La Rochelle by a causeway, the Île de Ré is one of our favourite places to recommend for a civilised spring short break. It enjoys mild weather, but the crowds stay away until the summer months, so we particularly recommend a few days here in April or May, when you can enjoy the picturesque villages, white sand dunes and beaches, leisurely cycle paths – and some of the best seafood in France.
