DISCOVER THE “ILE DE RÉ”
On foot, by bike or car, exploring Ré la Blanche is already an unforgettable adventure. History and architecture buffs can begin their tour of this island in Charente-Maritime bathed in the Atlantic Ocean with the Vauban fortifications of Saint-Martin-de-Ré, a UNESCO world heritage site, before heading to Fort La Prée in La Flotte. The island houses several remarkable churches including the Saint-Martin church, the Sainte-Catherine de Loix church and the Sainte-Étienne d’Ars-en-Ré church. The Ernest-Cognacq Museum, located in a historical monument in Saint-Martin, is one of the most beautiful museums in Nouvelle-Aquitaine. It bears the Museum of France label, and opens the door to the history of the island.
