The pearl of the Atlantic, Ile de Re boasts a Mediterranean climate and is peppered with delightful coastal villages with quaint harbours and vibrant bars and restaurants. Approach the island over the iconic bridge to enter the land of the rich and famous. The choice is yours but do visit St. Martin to climb the belltower of the church and to eat one of their delicious ice creams as you take in the sites, and on to Ars en Re with it 's narrow streets and unusual church steeple, not forgetting to stop at the cafe du Commerce for a drink or meal, so on to Phare des Baleines to watch the sun set into the Atlantic.
I would count La Rochelle as one of the finest towns in France and I am always looking for an excuse to visit. Shopping under the arcades on a hot summer's day can be refreshing and rewarding while a meal at the port by the towers is a must. For gourmets look for restaurants of the Coutenceau family which include La Flotte on the port. The market is a dazzling display of local produce and try to disapear into the side streets to find hidden gems.
5 minutes from Pistoulet you will find La Clos Gourmande, a small excellent Michelin starred restaurant.
To the west of Niort lies the Marais Poitevin, a land of mistery flora & fauna. There you may hire a boat and wend your way through the canals and conches immersing youself in mother nature, the sounds and smells. Visit the villages of Coulon, Arcais and Mallezais with it's ancient Abbey ruins and enjoy local specialities in one of the many restaurants.
The starred restaurant Auberge de La Roussille can be found at Niort St. Liguaire.
