Weekend retreat on Ile de Ré


  Simple, rustic with a hint of Scandinavian, this is the stunning weekend home of Serendipity co owner, Laurence.Situated on Ile De Ré, it is the perfect spot if  you are looking to experience an authentically French, slow, relaxed, pace of life. The island itself is no more than 30km in length and only 5 km at its widest point. Cycling is the best way to see the island and experience the island's beautiful countryside, narrow lanes and whitewashed houses. The French holiday there so if it's good enough for them then it's good enough for me!
