Les Portes en Ré

Les Portes-en- Ré, the last stopover to the north of the island

At the far end of the island, the village of Les Portes en Ré nestles among forests, salt marshlands and beaches.


With its tables outside cafés, and restaurants, the Place de La Liberté is at the heart of the village and bustles with life late in the afternoon when locals and tourists come back from the beach. Along the narrow streets, behind simple facades, beautiful houses belonging to inhabitants in search of peace and quiet.

In the nature reserve of Lilleau des Niges, accessible either on foot or by bike, you will be able to view thousands of birds during their migration or at the time of nesting.

Not mentioning Trousse Chemise forest would be a regrettable omission: this idyllic spot, immortalized by Charles Aznavour, retains its unspoilt magical atmosphere.
