Overview

Pool Villa/House Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach Walk to Village Parking Space

A modern, four-bedroomed villa in the stunning port village of Ars en Ré, Villa Sacha is an ideal base to explore the delights of Ile de Ré.

You’ll be welcomed to Villa Sacha’s contemporary, open-plan living space, with a comfortable sofa and armchairs beside a striking floor-to-ceiling bookcase. The spacious dining room, decorated in earthy tones that contrast the whitewashed walls, features a large, rustic-chic dining table, fireplace and a traditional French dresser. Large windows occupy most of the exterior wall, allowing natural light to flood into this harmonious space throughout the day.

The villa’s well-equipped kitchen, fitted with smart white cabinets, opens directly onto the terrace, perfect for serving relaxed lunches in the sun-drenched garden. You’ll have all the essentials for your stay, as well as a Nespresso coffee machine that’ll brew your morning coffee as you admire the garden view.

Tastefully decorated and uncluttered, the master bedroom incorporates a private bathroom with a walk-in shower. There are two additional bedrooms within the main villa. The beds in the twin room can be joined to make a double, while younger guests will love the bunk bed room. A poolside annexe hosts the fourth bedroom, featuring a double bed and private shower room.

The bright and modern main bathroom has a bathtub with an overhead shower and washbasin. The washing machine is also discreetly positioned in the bathroom.

Eating outdoors is easy at Villa Sacha, with a dining table on the garden terrace, directly outside the kitchen. You’ll have more options for family meals with a superb Weber barbecue – ideal for preparing some of the island’s wonderful seafood. Enjoy the sun at the poolside, with deck chairs and large bean bags to relax on between dips in the terrific heated swimming pool.

If, like most visitors to the island, you’re planning on getting around on two wheels, you’ll be pleased to know Ars en Ré is an excellent base for exploring by bike. You’ll find yourself on winding cycle routes, heading through marshland, woodland, and stunning coastal paths. The village itself is disarmingly beautiful, with galleries, boutiques and lovingly preserved, centuries-old buildings. Dine at local restaurants serving seafood fresh from the quayside, or explore the village shops to find the perfect ingredients for a poolside dinner back at Villa Sacha.

Classified as one of France’s 'plus-beaux villages', the picturesque harbour village of Ars en Ré is located in the southwest of Ile de Ré. From the oversized black and white church spire at the centre of the village to the pretty whitewashed houses that adorn winding streets, you’ll find yourself instinctively reaching for a camera at every turn. You’ll also immerse yourself in the region’s laid-back atmosphere, happily meandering around galleries, browsing independent stores and settling down for delicious seafood lunches.

Upon arriving on the island for the first time, you’ll be taken aback by the sheer volume of cycles – and the scarcity of cars! This is entirely by design, with over one hundred kilometres of dedicated cycle paths installed on Ile de Ré’s predominantly flat landscape. Cycling enthusiasts widely consider the area the best-located option for a biking holiday because the island’s southwest is quieter and has many stunning routes. Ars en Ré hosts several bike rental companies, where you’ll have the choice of a range of sizes and types of cycles, with E-Bikes becoming an increasingly popular option. Once you’ve hired your wheels of choice, explore winding routes that guide you through woodland, oyster farms, marshland, and coastal paths with breath-taking ocean panoramas.

For a fantastic hands-on experience of the island’s aquaculture, take a leisurely twenty-minute ride to La Ferme des Baleines. Based alongside the Lilleau des Niges nature reserve, this oyster farm produces clear oysters, imperial prawns, razor clams, and sea bream. If you book ahead online, you can enjoy a guided tour of the farm, along with tastings. Once you’ve learned about the farm’s intricate and fascinating production methods, you can enjoy some delicious oysters with a glass of perfectly chilled wine.

For a different perspective on the huge church spire at Ars en Ré, take the twenty-minute ride north to the iconic lighthouse at Phare des Baleines. Having made your way to the top, you will, clear weather permitting, see the painted spire that once helped to guide boats into the port long before the invention of radar systems! After your ride and climbing the lighthouse steps, why not refuel at the La Martinière ice cream parlour? With a wide variety of mouth-watering gelato flavours and frozen macarons on offer, who could resist?

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

A high chair and travel cot are provided at Villa Sacha, making it ideal for children of all ages and sizes. Older children will love the bunk beds, while teenagers are often designated the annexe bedroom with an en-suite shower room – not only do they enjoy the privacy, but it helps prevent bathroom queues the following morning! Wi-Fi connection and a television in the lounge are available at Villa Sacha.

Children’s bikes are easy to hire, with various types available at cycle hire outlets, including E-Bikes. Once everyone is equipped with bikes, head out early and take a thirty-minute ride to the stunning coastline of Plage du Petit Bec. One of many fantastic seaside options, the beach has a gentle incline to the water, making it ideal for younger children. Older kids can take lessons in bodyboarding, kayaking and more, with equipment available to hire. While you’re on an island, why not take a boat ride? Choose from fishing trips, yacht excursions, cruises across to the neighbouring island of Oléron and thrilling speedboat rides.
