Two weeks wasn't enough!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a very warm reception by the lovely owner Steven, His English is excellent and he was able to give us valuable information about Rivedoux and other places to see on the Island.

The house is very clean and comfortable, nicely decorated with a lovely private courtyard. Everything you could need is provided.

Rivedoux itself is a lovely quiet village with a daily market,a small supermarket and bar within walking distance of the house, lovely people and scenery. We had our two teenage girls with us and were afraid they would be bored, we couldn't have been more wrong. they loved it and can't wait to return.

We hired bikes locally and cycled absolutely everywhere. The island is really easy to get around and the cycle paths make it really safe. I haven't sat on a bike in more than 10 years and had no intention of cycling anywhere when I booked the holiday and I can't praise it highly enough. Didn't use the car for 10 days. Had intended to go to La Rochelle a few times but the island was so lovely we ended up going only once. We could have stayed for three weeks and still have had plenty to do and see.

I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a good base from which to explore Ile de Re with the convenience of good amenities on their doorstep. Cycling is a definate must do but most places are easily accessible by car. A must do is the Sunday Market in Le Bois Plage.

Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our party consisted of 4 ladies. Our plan was to spend a long weekend cycling around Ile De Re, out of season, eating, drinking and enjoying the people and the countryside.

Our grasp on the french language is pretty basic so my first concern was how to communicate with our villa owners. I needn't have worried. Their english is really good and they were incredibly friendly and welcoming. First we met the villa owner, Steven's parents who were lovely. Then when we went for a seafront meal at the nearby hotel, a very gorgeous waiter approached us with a wide smile and introduced himself as Steven. He couldn't have been more helpful. He's travelled the world and his English is great, as is his passion for life.

When we entered, the villa was simply perfect. Very stylish and very french. We all loved it!

I hadn't experienced this type of villa arrangement before so it was all new to me. All contact is with the villa owners. They will send a contract which you will need to sign and return, there is a deposit to pay with the balance payable upon arrival. You'll need to pay a cash deposit on arrival which is returnable at the end of your stay. You'll need to pay extra for linen and you'll need to make sure the villa is clean and tidy before you leave.

As for Ile De Re. Well, we're all in love with the place. Everyone we met were really friendly and helpful (locals and tourists), most people seem to own a small dog, the villages are stunning, the food is incredible and the wine great. Cycling is also safe and easy.

You'll need to find some basics like milk, coffee, etc when you arrive so get advice from the owners when you arrive.

We can't wait to go back.

One of our best ever holidays :-)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks, it was one of the best holidays we've had. The house was lovely, very authentic Ile De Re property, well kitted out, beautifully presented, very clean and very friendly and helpful owners. Riverdoux Plage is quite small, but it has everything you need within walking distance, its also being tastefully developed. Lovely little harbour and beaches within walking distance. We loved cycling around the island on cycle paths or quiet roads, so much nicer and far more relaxing than being in the car. We brought our own bikes as local hire can be expensive, as is the bridge toll - don't stay on the Ile De Re if you planning lots of day trips to the mainland - but then the Ile De Re is lovely and has plenty to do and see.
