Enjoy a relaxing panoramic drive and settle into the charming atmosphere of this island paradise, which is linked to the mainland by a 3-kilometre-long bridge. Renowned for its high quality of life, delicious food and heavenly sandy beaches, the ‘White Island’ is also rich in birdlife. Take a guided walk through the narrow, cobbled streets of the picturesque capital, Saint Martin de Ré, and picture what it was like in the Middle Ages, as you discover this one-time active port and military stronghold. Then enjoy some free time to explore on your own, browse the boutiques or visit an open-air café.
