Explore the charming harbour-side village of Loix en Ré on foot, by bicycle, by canoe or even horse-drawn carriage, located within walking distance of the parc. The small, traditional village of La Flotte is a short drive away, with narrow streets and pretty houses, and worth the trip for your souvenir from its popular market. Further afield is La Rochelle, with its aquarium, cathedral, restaurants and gardens, well worth a day out.

Days Out

La Rochelle aquarium

Le Musée de Automates

Feel like you are really exploring under the ocean when you walk through the glass tunnel and see the sharks above your head. Le Musée de Automates is also in La Rochelle, displaying exquisite mechanical toys and figures made by masters of their craft.

La Rochelle restaurant

La Rochelle

For a full day out La Rochelle has plenty of attractions to keep everybody entertained. It has a beautiful cathedral and gardens to explore and great restaurants for refreshments.

Ile de Re beach

Loix en Ré

The harbour-side village of Loix en Ré must be explored. It is within walking distance of the parc, but why not arrive in style on a horse-drawn carriage? But if that is too flamboyant you can always take a canoe or bike.

St Martin de Re view

Musée Ernest Cognacq

The Musée Ernest Cognacq is a great cultural experience and is only 13 km from the parc. It is housed in the 15th century ‘Hôtel de Clerjotte’ in St Martin de Ré and is home to a number of collections and exhibitions dedicated to the history of the island.

Ile de Re market

La Flotte

La Flotte market is great for souvenirs and the narrow streets and pretty houses are lovely for just wandering around. The village also has the 12th century ruins of a Cistercian abbey, the church of Saint Catherine and the bell tower, which are all pretty sights.
