The Beach

plage-basse-benaie-ste-marie-reBeach: a 10 minutes walk from the house, less with your bike, leads you to the Bénale beach which offers you a long extent of fine sand, pebbles and beautiful waves when the tide is rising.

A little further you will find the Montamer beach, part of the village of La Noue.

Each of theses beaches alterns fine sand,  pebbles and rocks where you encounter the remnants of the last world war.

Cars On The Isle

panneauThe isle is a quiet place except during summer holidays. During summer, the number of inhabitants on the île de Ré is multiplied by 10.
As a consequence finding a parking place can be a real issue. Our house is located next to the church’s place which is a free car park. Other free car parks were created in the neighbourhood, as the Jaulaines park, when heading to the beach.

– Rue Chantecorps
– Rue de la Crapaudière
– Rue de la Rampe
– Rue Berchotteau
– Rue de Montamer (next to the Maison du Magayant)
– Rue des Battages

– Rue des Moineaux (next to the gare routière)
– Place de la Pléiade (next to Médiathèque)
– Place de la Mairie (rue de la République)
