Do you know Ars-en-Ré?
To the north of the Île de Ré, between Saint-Clément-des-Baleines and La Couarde-sur-Mer, lies Ars-en-Ré, a small island village with all the charm so typical of the Île de Ré. Listed as one of the “Most Beautiful Villages of France”, it makes the ideal holiday base for anyone who loves peace, quiet and nature. Renowned for its multitude of little white houses, their shutters painted green or blue, its cobbled streets lined by hollyhocks, Ars-en-Ré is tranquillity at its best.
At a crossroads between two alleyways, see if you can catch a glimpse of the village church, built in the 7th century in a mixture of Romanesque and Gothic styles. Its steeple, towering to a height of 40 metres, still guides the boats arriving at the entrance to the bay. Then let your steps lead you to the marina, to admire the innumerable boats in every colour, a truly picture postcard view.
On your programme?
Ars-en-Ré is small enough to enable you to do everything on foot or by bike, and offers some fabulous excursions that start from the heart of the village. The La Conche beaches, accessible by cycle track, present a vast panorama over the Atlantic Ocean. The perfect spot to take a walk along the sand and admire the beauty of the sunset. Then head towards the Les Baleines lighthouse, or the Lilleau des Niges nature reserve, home to a particularly rich biodiversity, both plant and animal.
And you certainly shouldn’t hesitate to go adventuring and explore the salt marshes. Love shellfish gathering? Then set your heading for Fier d’Ars, at low tide there’s nowhere better.
