Ile de Ré, A villa by the ocean

Ile de Ré

On the patio, a splendid jacuzzi faces the sea

Just outside the village of La Noue, on the Isle of Ré, stands a delightful 230 sq m waterfront property with large bay windows allowing for an amazing 180° view on the ocean. Right outside the living room, a vast 8,000 sq m garden leads straight to the beach. The terraces overlooking the ocean are ideal sunbathing spots and provide a relaxing atmosphere after a swim. The estate, entirely designed by Astride Maillet, a chalet interior designer, harmoniously blends blue and grey fabrics with the wooden floor and beams. “It’s your typical Isle of Ré family house, conveniently located in the midst of gorgeous natural landscapes,” says l’Agence du Port. A huge living room leads to the dining room, which can seat twelve people, complete with a fireplace, a home cinema system and comfortable sofas. A Jacuzzi faces the sea while a fully-equipped kitchen, with its central countertop, will make collective cooking a joy. Six bedrooms, including two Master suites with their own bathrooms, fill in the picture. All of which are part of the Isle of Ré experience, with exceptional sunshine, beautiful white sand beaches, gorgeous streets lined with roses, colorful markets and peaceful atmosphere.
