Ste Marie de Ré

Where coast and country meet

The first impression of Sainte Marie de Ré is that of a small country village, and yet it is situated by the sea.

The ‘magayants’, peasant farmers who  shed along the seashore by trapping  fish in  fish locks at low tide, had se led here; after  fishing, they went back to their piece of land.


Renowned for its vineyards, Sainte Marie de Ré is the oldest village of the island.


Besides, its wild beaches a ract surfers in search of high waves.
