About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr T D Taylor

I am an active retired professional. We live on-site. In the season my children and grandchildren live with us. We are totally independant neighbours.

Year property purchased 2005
Why this location? It is perfect. Easily accessed by road via ferry or Eurotunnel, by air from Stansted, Gatwick and by train to La Rochelle. Ile de Re is a flat cycling paradise - to the sea, the beach, the vineyards, the bars, restaurants and the sunshine.
Unique benefits of property It is as central as it is almost possible to be. We are mid island with easy access to our village of Le Bois Plage, to the capital, St Martin, to La Flotte and to all the other villages of the island generally. We cycle to the beach via the market, to a different beach or market every day. We have amazing cafes, bars and restaurants in every village. The island is full of history, of adventure and peace and quiet. It is an island with everything within easy reach and the historic city of La Rochelle is on our doorstep.
