Those with an admiring eye for rustic, unequivocally French styling will be immediately enchanted on arrival at Maison Yasmina. A masterpiece of authentic charm both inside and out, this hugely characterful three-bedroomed home welcomes up to five guests to the equally beguiling village of Ars-en-Ré.

You’re humbly greeted by native flora, at a stunning arched entrance door that’s installed within expertly preserved stone walls - themselves bedecked with climbing foliage and shuttered windows so synonymous with the island’s authentic architecture. The delightfully offbeat furniture in the corridor beyond the front door is indicative of the imaginatively curated joys that await, inside this unashamedly sophisticated maison.

Your living space contains, among other delights, a range of comfortable seating. There’s a large and dreamily comfortable sofa, its fabrics perfectly in tune with the monochromatic décor, along with a rug that invites romantic evenings in front of the fireplace and television.

The uber-chic rustic ornamentation, beautiful choices of fabrics and furnishings, as well as the intelligent use of space, are indicative of this remarkable home’s owner having founded an interior design magazine. The inventive use of materials continues in the kitchen - solid wood and stainless steel offset by the whitewashed stone wall - with a magnificent range cooker as the centrepiece.  

Two bedrooms with stylish en-suite shower rooms occupy the ground floor – one double and one twin room – along with a WC.

Climb the ultra-modern, yet effortlessly congruent, iron staircase, which leads to a choice of two additional bedrooms. A masterfully preserved free-standing bathtub and washbasin are showcased in the en-suite to the double room.

Expressive styling and intelligent use of space deliver a delightfully chilled outdoor living space, with a shaded dining table, sunbeds and quirky seating giving you some cool spots to relax throughout the day and evening in this beautifully planted courtyard.

With Ars-en-Ré classified as one of the ‘Plus Beaux Villages de France’, Maison Yasmina is most certainly not out of place here. This delightful harbour village, known for its black and white spire that has guided sailors safely to the small port for hundreds of years, is home to boutiques, galleries and fabulous restaurants. Alongside cycling enthusiasts who return to Ars-en-Ré in their droves each year, you’ll have fast access to some of the most invigorating routes, making this a perfect base from which to explore the island by bike.

Winding streets lined with green-shuttered, whitewashed houses, boutiques, galleries and a small but picturesque port all help to keep Ars en Ré on France’s official list of plus beaux villages. The sleepy centre is gorgeous, with a huge stone church whose black and white spire serves as a nautical day mark. Take a relaxed fishing excursion or boat ride, or happily meander around side streets that feature boutique galleries, flower shops, artisanal bakers and so many delightful spots for photos. You’ll find wonderful seafood restaurants and cafés, with seating in the cobbled village square, where you can relax and immerse yourself in the refined beauty of this historic town.

Located in the quieter southwest of Ile de Ré, Ars en Ré is a superb base for biking around an island whose sixty miles of mainly car-free cycling routes bring thousands of visitors back each year. Easy terrains, salt beds, oyster farms and marshland typify the local landscape, and a wealth of picturesque and varied routes across the whole island are quickly accessible from Ars en Ré. Hire bikes from one of the rental outlets in the village, then head out and explore the natural delights of this fabulous island.

One superb journey is the seven-kilometre ride north to Phare des Baleines, where if you climb the steps of the iconic lighthouse, you’ll be able to see the black tip of the spire back at Ars en Ré, as well as enjoying spectacular views across the coastline and village of Portes en Ré. There are huge stretches of sandy beach here, fabulous seafood restaurants, and the chance to partake in some wave-enhanced summer watersports, or even a motorboat ride.
