Very Good

“Beautiful property”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2018

Just returned from a glorious week’s stay with our grownup children and one grandchild. We thought it was perfect for our needs - lots of outside and indoor space to relax and enjoy the fantastic weather. The pool and garden are exceptional. We also especially appreciated that two of the bedrooms have doors straight out to the garden which meant some of the party could go out/get up early without disturbing others. The location is good with access to the cycle paths close by, a great bread shop just 5 minutes away and the beach a nice stroll. We ate in the village one night and that was good and made good use of the local supermarket which is also in walkable distance. Hosts couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful during our stay. Would definitely like to return.

Owner's reply: Dear Carolyn Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Isabelle and I really enjoyed having you and your family stay. We are delighted you enjoyed your holiday, you had glorious weather, almost too hot! We hope to see you again soon on Ile de Re. Merci encore Ian and Isabelle.

“Flocon de Sel, perfect location for a stay in Ile de Re”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2017

We have stayed at Flocon de Sel 3 times now in the last two years. Groups of 6,7 and 4..The owners Isabelle & Ian are most welcoming & always keen to help with any questions.The house is just as described & the photographs are true to view!. Its very comfortable, clean & very well equipped. La Noue is a perfect location to stay, quieter than some which is nice. has 2/3 good local restaurants, market, fish, & a fab cheese shop, plus 2 good patisseries all only a few min's walk..Beach also only 5 mins walk. By far the best way to see the island is cycling..We'll certainly be back again sometime toward the end of the season...

“Perfect holiday home with stunning gardens”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2017

We returned to Flocon de Sel in August 2016, having thoroughly enjoyed our stay the previous summer. As a family of five (children currently 9, 8 and 6) often with a grandparent in tow, the layout of Flocon de Sel is perfect, with airy rooms leading directly onto the huge outdoor terrace and gardens. The gite is equipped with everything you need and we greatly value the degree of privacy it offers with its own stunningly designed gardens and beautiful planting schemes. The pool and pool terrace are both a fantastic size and superbly kept - this is our favourite place to relax while the children swim or play games in the garden. The entrance is securely gated, so it is safe for children to play freely Ian and Isabelle are incredibly welcoming, quickly and warmly responding to any queries and offering their help. Flocon de Sel is located in La Noue, just across the road from the cycle path - we enjoy biking to the lovely beaches near Bois-Plage or across to La Flotte or St Martin. If you like running, there are some lovely runs along the beach paths towards Sainte-Marie or through the vineyards towards La Flotte. Arguably the best bakery on the island is a couple of minutes walk away and you can cycle to the nearby supermarket in five minutes. Even in summer, the beaches of Ile de Re remain uncrowded and the various towns around the island are a delight to explore. We are looking forward to our third visit in the summer of 2017 (and we never usually return to the same place twice)!

“Best holliday ever!”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2012

We had a wonderful week in La Noue and Flocon de Sel. The house was just like this site describes it - clean, well equiped and very kozy. The owners, Isabelle and Ian, are so nice and welcoming and very service-minded. They answer any questions about the area and they were doing everything to make us feel comfortable. Our teenaged boys, and our girls who are a little younger, said they prefer to stay at the island compared to La Rochelle. We found La Noue very peacefull, beautyful and most important of all - very safe and secure. Hireing bikes was a good investment, you get easily around - a comfortable way of exploring the island. We can absolutely recommend this place, and when we return, it will be for at least 2 weeks!!


Reviewed 4 Jul 2012

We were two friends with our teenage kids and we had a fantastic time in the house. It was a wonderful house and perfect location. Nice bakery and marketplace and close to everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Isabel and Ian were very helpful and nice hosts, and we all enjoyed our stay. We would love to come back, but then we will stay for more than one week.
