Must-see visits on the island of Ré
The Coopérative des Vignerons de l’Ile de Ré : the vineyards cover a big part of the landscape of the Ile de Ré. Regularly, visits to wine cellars and tastings of local wines, pineau and cognac are organised.
Near the île de Ré you’ll find the Ile d’Aix, and you can also approach the Fort Boyard with boat trips of Les Croisières Inter-iles. Also visit La Rochelle, the old harbour and the beautiful Aquarium. Admire the Corderie Royale of Rochefort, near the shipyard of the reconstruction of the Hermione, the frigate Lafayette used to travel in 1780.
Another splendid visit for children: stroking giraffes and admire polar bears in the Zoo de la Palmyre, one of the most beautiful animal parks of France.
And for older children / adults : the Futuroscope of Poitiers, the Venise Verte and the Marais Poitevin, and many more outings that are possible from the Ile de Ré.
