« Merci beaucoup »... my family enjoyed the holiday in your villa at Ile de Ré tremendously.
The villa is just perfect. The location. The pool. The large and comfortable rooms. The garden... just perfect.
Having the bikes available was great too. Though the « round the island » cycle on Thursday morning (some 55 Kms) with my eldest son was a little tiring!
Ile de Ré is an interesting and lively island to visit, but we were always glad to get back to the peace and quiet of 22 Route de Rouine, and finish the day with a family dinner on the patio overlooking the garden and sea.
The weather was kind to us too with hot and sunny days all through till Friday afternoon.
I think everyone would have liked to have stayed for another week.

Dear Catherine,
A quick note to thank you for this year’s rental. We had a very good stay and found the the house in an excellent state throughout with all we needed. The pool worked very well and was beautifully warm for the little ones: they really enjoyed it! We were very fortunate with the weather with only one half day of rain – otherwise really sunny but not too hot. The only pity for us was that our youngest daughter didn’t make it as her job involves the Olympics and, in the event, just couldn’t get the time off.
So, thank you again and we hope you and your family have a good summer.
With kind regards

Dear Catherine,
we are on the ferry back to England, at the end of our holiday. It seems like a long time since we left your lovely villa, but I just wanted to say that we had a very enjoyable stay. We thought the villa was very attractive, and we appreciated how well equipped it was as well as being clean, comfortable and having so many thoughtful and charming touches. Many rental properties lock away rooms or valuables, so that guests feel as though they are imposing on the host. At your villa, we felt very welcome.
Thank you also for all your help and recommendations ahead of our stay.
With best wishes

A wonderful holiday We stayed at Villa Les Ensemberts for 1 week at the end of August and it was wonderful! We were 2 families (4 adults, 4 children) and there was enough space for all the kids to have their own room, so we were very comfortable. The pool is beautiful and very clean, and the veiw is absolutely stunning. All in all, this is just a lovely place to spend a week of hard-earned holidays! It is so peaceful and quiet, with the only sound being the waves at the bottom of the garden. The island of Ile de Re is fantastic too. There is tons to do, especially for kids. We hired bikes and pretty much cycled everywhere. And the markets are AMAZING! We ate so well all week! We would definitely recommend a holiday at this villa, it is beautiful.

Problem with giving this property a good review is that others may will want to stay there too. A villa that is a pleasure to take a holiday in because what is described is what is there and it all works. If you want a truly peaceful break this is ideal, this was our third holiday in the villa.

Delightful setting. A well furnished, thoroughly clean house in a quiet setting on this busy island that suited our family holiday excellently - 3 couples + 1 20 something and 2 toddlers. Excellent heated pool with reasonably safe cover (for toddlers) Access to beach from garden possible but steepness and erosion meant we used beaches a bit further along. We would certainly recommend and use again ourselves.

The villa is in a suberb location in a very quiet area on the island; the accommodation is very comfortable and spacious, with an excellent pool and great views onto the beach. It is worth noting that the beach is not really suitable for swimming etc, being very rocky; also two of the bedrooms are accessed from outside, across the patio from the master bedroom. The villa was very clean, we paid extra for mid-week cleaning and extra towels, which was worth doing. The ile de Re is beautiful, with great beaches and plenty of safe cycle tracks. The villa is located on the edge of Le Noue, which has a great boulangerie, delicatessan and market selling very good produce, and has a couple of decent restaurants/cafes.

My apologies in not getting back quicker. I wanted to let you know that we had an absolutely spectacular time. Ile de Re is a very special place and we hope to come back often. Very much reminded me of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, but with the bonus of fresh oysters, wine, and fleur du sel! And you simply cant beat St Martin and La Flotte for great dinners!!!! Any way, we do plan to return (if you will have us)! The kids loved your home as did we. The pool was perfect. The beach delightful.

Dear Catherine,
I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your house this past week, and the Ile de Ré in general. It was exactly the vacation we dreamed of having. Everyone we came into contact with, including Véronique, was friendly and helpful. The house was even better than the photos and we loved the beach-front location -- really the best way to enjoy the island! My son especially appreciated all the wonderful books and toys he found in the house. Thank you again for providing us with such a great vacation villa.

Best regards,

Dear Mme Asquier,
Thank you very much for returning our cheque. We were delighted with our stay on Ile de Re, and your home was quite brilliant for us. I have never come across such a well equipped holiday house and the garden, pool and views were magnificent. I do hope we will be able to visit there again some time. We all had a wonderful time. I hope you too enjoyed your holiday.

Kind Regards,
