Ile de Ré France
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Ile de Ré

Also known as 'white island', Ile de Ré is a 20 mi long landscape of white beaches and sand dunes, forests, and salt marshes.
The origins of its name remain a mystery. While some claim is comes from the Latin 'ratis', meaning 'raft' or 'boat', others insist it is named after the radish (the vegetable). Its warm, sunny climate has attracted many famous French people, for example Claude Nougaro, Charles Aznavour, Claude Rich, and Lionel Jospin. Don't forget to bring your bike to set out and explore the villages of white houses and wealth of natural heritage.
