Fisherman’s Cottage

Ile-de-Ré, Charente-Maritime

In fashionable St Martin, a wonderfully peaceful little cottage, quaint, simple and pretty, a hop to the white sand beaches of Île de Ré


3 beds


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 4


Leave the summer throng behind you, wind through the creamy, cobbled backstreets of Saint Martin and discover your peaceful fisherman’s cottage. Step from the street straight into the beamy sitting room snug with open fire, comfy sofas and the owner’s collection of ceramics. The sitting room blends into the peppermint kitchen and then into a small but perfectly formed garden. It may be teensy but everything is here: walls for privacy, tumbling plants… dine on the terrace, sprawl on the rug-sized lawn, gaze on the buttresses of the medieval abbey that rise majestically above. The twin upstairs comes with portholes that look on to the stairwell; the double has a brass bed, a sloping pine ceiling and a picture window overlooking the garden, the terracotta roofs and the abbey, illuminated at night. If you don’t feel like cooking, stroll down into fashionable Saint Martin, pick a harbourside restaurant and watch the bobbing boats. Ré is ideal for family holidays: its lovely white sand beaches are a short walk or bike ride away.

Very comfortable cottage, incredibly quiet place - we only heard the doves and swallows - really convenient for harbour, a great food market open every day from 8 am, bike rental and ice cream shop. Very nice sunny garden. Only amenities missing were wifi (but you are on holiday!) and a teapot. The owners say they will buy a teapot and the mobile phone works in the bedroom and the garden.

Fisherman's cottage is a delightful base from which to explore St Martin and the beautiful island of Ile de Re. It is homely, well equipped and in an ideal setting only 5 minutes walk from the harbour, restaurants and shops. The sweet secluded garden is an absolute gem.
