Best for fam­i­lies: Île de Ré

Country Life Every Week - - Property Comment -

Long re­garded as the sum­mer bolt­hole for well-heeled Parisians—with its sand dunes and pine forests, it’s often likened to the Hamp­tons—the lit­tle At­lantic-coast is­land is grow­ing in pop­u­lar­ity with Bri­tish buy­ers. Fam­i­lies like it for its cycle paths and end­less beaches, which, even at the height of the sea­son, never get too crowded. It’s much more in­for­mal than the Riviera, too—no su­pery­acht ma­rina and no one dis­cusses the mer­its of Miche­lin-starred restau­rants.

This house in Sainte-marie de Ré of­fers the best of both worlds: prox­im­ity to both the beach and the town cen­tre. It comes with two bed­rooms (one in a sep­a­rate stu­dio). €344,500. Leggett Im­mo­bilier (0870 011 5151)
