Here we are in the arse of France!!!!!!!
Did I mis-pronounciate that? Actually not ...we really are in the Ars en Rae on the I'lle de Re.
We have to say it is lovely here. A small island where there is peace and quiet; something we cherish. It may not be the same in the real holiday season but we already feel it's a place worth coming back to.
Apart from our campsite which is metres away from the sea we have looked at Ars En Re which is delightful .. Les Port en Re; Saint Clement des Baleines and Loix (not very exciting but nice) and Saint Martin de Re which is truly delightful and we feel is the jewel of the island. The visit to Phare de Baleines was arduous but well worth the views. 257 steps Colin recorded puffing all the way.
We are glad we came here and may well make it here on route to sunny climes next winter .
Best memory will be eating lobster and langoustines by the harbour in Saint Martin de Re truly delightful.
