To discover the many landscapes of the island, we recommend that you leave your car behind and go around by bike:
numerous cycling paths will take you to the 10 villages of the island, each displaying their very singular identity. From white sand beaches to woods, through salt marshes and natural reserves filled with rare migrating birds, you will fall under Ré’s charm!

Whatever your taste and aspirations are – relaxing, sporty, cultural or festive vacations – the island has something to offer.

Come to the Résidence ANDREA, whether you are a couple, a family, or a group of friends, and take the time to get lost in the small cobble-stoned streets of our village, La Flotte-en-Ré.

La Flotte has managed to remain authentic, and its beauty and dynamism make it a very special place on the island. Enjoy a walk in this village which was awarded the “most beautiful village of France” prize.

Come visit the daily market on the medieval square downtown and fill your basket up with fresh, local products. 
Poke in the little boutiques along the pedestrian streets for some impromptu shopping
, take a lazy stroll around the port and stop for a drink or a meal in the many restaurants and bars along the shore, visit the art galleries or the museum dedicated to the history of life on the island... Take the children to play on the swings at the ocean front, or to the skate-park, to the equestrian club or the sailing school. Or why not simply relax for a day at the beach? There are a thousand ways to discover and enjoy La Flotte!
