Just 30kms long and 5kms wide, Ile-de-Ré is the cyclist’s kingdom. You’ll find loads of cycle routes and little villages which are closed to traffic, as well as delightful boutiques to browse in on foot. The best restaurants are in St -Martin-de-Ré, alongside the old harbour.
The silver mines were discovered by the Romans and mined from the 6th to the 10th century. Initially, the mine’s lead deposits were more important than the silver, but as time went on, it was used to make coins which have been discovered all over Europe. An exhibition (with a commentary in English) explains the formation of the mines and you can also visit gardens where plants were used for medical cures, for cooking and for making dyes.
La Vallée des Singes
Discover over 350 primates and thirty different species living in natural surroundings. Look out for gorillas, silver marmosets and agile Red-faced Spider Monkeys, especially at feeding time! La Vallée des Singes also has a children’s farm, an adventure play area and snack bars – or you can take your own picnic to enjoy in the shady, well-equipped picnic areas.
La Venise Verte
Situated less than an hour’s drive away is Le Marais Poitevin, known as ’La Venise Verte’. Its beautiful landscapes have always been a source of inspiration for artists and poets. For over a thousand years, this verdant area of marshland (which was once a coastal gulf leading to the port of Niort) has slowly been reclaimed and now has a picturesque network of canals crisscrossing it, which you can explore on foot or by hiring a boat or bicycle. The quaint villages have plenty of bars and restaurants where you can enjoy a refreshing drink or a relaxing lunch.
