About the neighbourhood
Le Bois is a typical Ile de Ré village with its narrow winding lanes lined with flowers, fine restaurants and charming cafés. At its heart is the town square with quaint shops and the island's best indoor and outdoor market which is open all year round. The safe, sandy beaches offer great watersports for children just learning to swim or sail, as well as more adventurous pursuits for windsurfers and kitesurfers. Other activities such as horseriding, tennis and of course cycling are all available in Le Bois.The village of Le Bois Plage en Ré is situated on the south west coast of the Island, running along 4 kms of sandy beaches and surrounded by wooded countryside. The town itself is 5 minutes from St. Martin, the island's capital, filled with brocantes, fashionable boutiques, lively bars and quayside restaurants.
Getting around
With more than 100km of dedicated (flat!) cycle networks, the easiest and most fun way of getting around the island. Abandon your car, hire bikes and explore the ten villages on the safe cycle paths. From Les Voiles you are an easy ride away from the brocantes and art galleries of Ars or a spot of retail therapy in the chic boutiques on the quayside of Saint Martin. Poodle along to one village for a leisurely lunch and on to another village for a coffee (or a sundowner!) and some people watching at the plentiful cafés and bars.
