This was a lovely place for our week's stay in La Noue. The house is very comfortable with a spacious living room/kitchen, one bedroom and a bathroom all well furnished and modern. There's also a nice garden area at the front with parking and a paved yard at the back both getting the sun. The village/small town of La Noue has all the facilities we needed ie bakery/patissierie (x2), restaurants and a regular market along with local cycle hire shops. The house is only about 200 metres from the village square so great for getting to the bakery for the morning baguette/croissant. But it also very quiet and secluded. We loved it.
We returned to la Noue having stayed last year and loved the ile de re experience. The cottage did not disappoint a second time. It was as welcoming, well appointed, private and well located as we remembered and enjoyed last year. We were delightedwe chose to come back. La Noue is a quiet corner of the ile de re but a perfect base from which to explore the island. We rented bikes from Cycland down the street and cycled most places including to the beach at La Bois each day. The lovely town of St martin de re is a short cycle away as is la flotte. And the cottage is perfectly located for the Boulanger, small market, carrefour, ATM and a few small restaurants. Everything you need at the end of the street!
The cottage has many benefits: its off the street behind a gate for privacy, you can eat breakfast in the courtyard out the back and have an evening glass of wine on the pair of deckchairs out the front. On the one wet day we had, we caught up on two James Bond movies from the DVD collection in a cupboard, comfortable in the two couches is the living room and safe from the elements! We were delighted with the gem of a stay and recommend it fully.
The cottage has been beautifully restored and furnished and was just perfect for the two of us.
A tasteful, spacious, bright house which is very well equipped with high quality items.
The walled court yard was quiet and private – a great place to dine outside in the warm sun! And good parking and bike storage at the front a must with the narrow streets.
Every day we walked 2 minutes to the market to buy delicious local fish, cheese, bread and pastries. The beach was also within easy walking distance for an evening stroll.
We hired cycles from the shop at the end of the road an excellent way of travelling around the rest of this wonderful island on flat safe cycle tracks. A truly magical week...
Our last visit was 2015 and didn’t think La Noue could top it, but it did this bright and comfortable cottage that was in great condition back then has been upgraded with lots of new Miele appliances and a gorgeous new sofa, the village square that’s a convenient two min walk, has also had a facelift, one of the restaurants had been brought out and much improved, open all day and live music Saturday evenings a great atmosphere, the summer market area has been expanded which made for easy shopping of simple meals to eat in the courtyard, a new rotisserie chicken shop on the entrance to La Noue and the bakery also improved with seating indoor and out that provides light bites throughout the day, along with naughty gateaux and pastries to take away. The cheese shop now has a deli section, all in all a busy vibrant area. Around the island even more cycle paths have been added and everywhere was busy and welcoming, what with the sunny skies again a perfect week, many thanks, we will of course be back.
