Ile de Ré-France

 

 

After La Rochelle (link here), we continue our spring trip to Ile de Ré

It is the light that hits you first. As you cross the bridge from La Rochelle to Il de Ré, the air changes, becomes clearer, brighter, luminous. The island – a 30km-long flat strip of land with photogenic villages, old ports and sandy beaches – is small enough to cycle round, or to explore on horseback.

 A very charming yet simple village

We have a walk to the alley where our left side is a local market and right side is a small channel flow by greeny farms

Take a bike to Loix, about 7km from Ars en Ré

Feeling like I’m cycling into an Impressionist painting

How can I forget the smell sea salt and wild flowers, how can I forget the touch of wind and sunshine???

I will be back to you soon!  You beautiful amazing island…
