Discover the cultural heritage of the Ile de Ré!
The Ile de Ré is the pearl of the Atlantic Ocean. Between its terrestrial and maritime history, the Ile de Ré offers varied landscapes and a rich cultural heritage. Thanks to its many cycle paths, you are just a short pedal away from some of the most beautiful villages on the island including Ars-en-Ré, which is classed as one of the “most beautiful villages in France”. Stroll around Phare des Baleines Lighthouse, the Ars Bell Tower, and the old windmills. Take a walk along the river Fier, explore the marshes and Boutillon Dyke, and admire the views of the ocean. Or discover the secrets of the surrounding environment by visiting the Ecomusée des Marais Salants, the Huitrière de Ré or the Lilleau des Niges Nature Reserve with its magnificent birds.
