ARS-EN-RE Le Cormoran

Vendee & Charente

Selected as this site is now probably one of the best on the Ile de Ré. It has recently been refurbished to a very high standard and is just an 800m from the pretty town of Ars-en-Re and a 500m walk from the beach, which is great for rock-pooling at low tide and for swimming. Set amongst fields of vineyards, and divided in two by a minor road, the services and facilities include an excellent aqua complex. It is a great choice for cycling with easy access to the network of cycle paths that abound on the island.
