LIVING ON ILE DE RE
Ile de Ré captivated you during your holidays, so much so that now you think about staying on and renting here for a year? Why not! Imagine… how nice to watch the holidaymakers packing up their parasols, flippers and balls into their cases and returning to city life, whilst you on the other hand stay on to enjoy other seasons, other activities and the calm and authenticity of island life out of season.
Enjoy a fantastic lifestyle all year round
The legend is true – Ile de Ré enjoys a microclimate with a lot of sunshine. The summers are hot but not overwhelming. The winters are mild, with no big freezes. This exceptional climate enables plenty of breakfasts out on the terrace in your future rental.
When autumn comes, the colours change and nature takes on a new aspect. If you enjoy walking, you can discover anew the woodlands, the wild beaches, the foreshores and the salt pans. With a bit of luck you can see the amazing spectacle of thousands of migrating birds passing through
With its villages, military and religious buildings, fisheries, windmills, wells and alleyways, Ile de Ré has a remarkable heritage which has earnt it the ‘Pays d’Art et d’Histoire’ status. If you decide to buy a sea-view apartment or a house with a pool on Ile de Ré, you can make the most of this wonderful heritage at your leisure
