Bike riding on one of the most beautiful islands of the French Atlantic coast.

It is certainly not exaggerated to say that the Isle of Ré is one of the most beautiful island of the French Atlantic coast. Its nature is so nice and diversified with long and sandy beaches, marsh lands, salt fields and small vineyards. Furthermore the island has got lots of well-prepared bike paths and the original architecture has been respected so that many beautiful and authentic little villages are on your way. For the time of your holidays you will stay in a very stylish 4**** hotel close to the beach. It is surrounded by beautiful gardens and the swimming is waiting for you to relax. And last but not least will you dine in an excellent restaurant.

Day 1: Individual arrival at the Ile de Ré at the 4* hotel-restaurant & SPA plaisir
After your arrival at the hotel you will be welcomed with a cocktail and a brilliant dinner. Take a look at your hotel right here.
Day 2: Around the southern part of the island, ~30 km/19 miles
With your bike you will ride to Saint Martin de Ré. Its colorful harbor and its impressive fortress of Vauban are breathtaking. Afterwards you cycle to the village and the port of Flotte en Ré which is part of the ‘plus beaux villages de France’. Then you will ride on to the abbey of Châteliers and to the next fortress of Vauban, Fort la Prée. Passing Sainte Marie de Ré you’ll get back to your hotel. Take the time to relax on the beach or the swimming pool before having another delicious meal.
Day 3: La Rochelle, ~45 km/28 miles
You will leave the island today to discover the beautiful French coast line before riding on to La Rochelle, a charming port town with its historic town center.
Day 4: Around the center of the island, ~25 km/16 miles
Today’s stage leads you to Saint Martin de Ré and later to marsh lands and lagoons in the center of the island. In the afternoon you will ride on to the village of Loix and to the pointe of the island, the so called 'Pointe du Grouin'. Here you will enjoy an incredible view over the blue wide ocean and the bay of the sea on one side and the green marsh lands on the other side. It is just unforgettable. On your way back to the hotel you’ll pass by the charming small village of La Couarde sur Mer.
Day 5: Day off or Fort Boyard and Ile d'Aix, ~8 km/5 miles
The present day is dedicated to relaxation. Take your time and enjoy the beach or the wellness area of the hotel (included in category A). And if this is not enough you can go with the hotel boat (not included, 150 €/person) from the port of Saint Martin de Ré to the famous island of Fort Boyard and then to the small island of Aix where you should take the time for a walk to discover the breathtaking view over the French coast line with all its small islands.
Day 6: Around the northern part of the island, ~40 km/25 miles
This morning you will be transferred to Ars en Ré, which is listed as one of the most beautiful villages of France to start your daily bike tour. Alternatively you can also ride with your bike to Ars en Ré which will extend this stage of about 25km. Afterwards you will ride to the lighthouse 'Phare des Baleines' which is situated at the northernmost point of the island. From here you cycle to the nearby marsh lands which are the biggest breeding grounds for migrant birds in Europe.
Day 7: To the beach of ‘Trousse Chemise’, ~50 km/31 miles
This morning you will be riding westwards and then you cycle around the national reserve of ‘Lileau de Niges’ which is an enormous breeding area for migrant bird. And finally you will arrive at the beach of ‘Trousse Chemise’ which is certainly one of the most beautiful beaches on the whole island. Take the time to relax a bit by listening to the sound of the breaking waves before returning to your splendid hotel where you will enjoy the last dinner of this tour. We are sure that you will like it.
