Our holiday exceeded all our expectations. The island is beautiful and so clean. The Residence Le Petit Bois is a perfect place for a peaceful escape. Sylvie and Jean-Yves, the owners did everything possible to make our stay as pleasant as possible. They both speak good English, so communication was not a problem. The accommodation was well equipped and very comfortable, with a private outside space with loungers, a table and chairs. I would definitely stay there again. Ste Marie was within easy cycling distance of La Flotte, St Martin, Le Bois-Plage and Rivedoux-Plage, using the fantastic cycle paths. I would highly recommend the Residence and the island.
We had a wonderful week's holiday staying at Residence Le Petit Bois in early July.
The location is perfect, It is very peaceful, yet close to everything we needed and the hosts Sylvie and Jean-Yves could not have been more charming and helpful. The apartment was very comfortable.
The Residence is 5 minutes on foot to a well stocked Carrefour and mid-way between La Noue and St Marie de Re. Both are less than 10 minutes walk away and have boulangerie, daily markets and bike hire shops. I loved cycling down in the morning for fresh bread, croissants, fruit, vegetables and cheese. There is plenty of seafood too. We ate most meals outside on the comfortable and private patio which had a canopy to provide shade as required.
There are lots of little beaches within a short distance of the Residence- favourites were Plage Basse Benaie, Les Grenettes and Plage de la Sallee. The complex has a heated outdoor pool which we all loved. We played tennis at the Sports Complex nearby. The Residence has a games room with pool and table tennis tables when we needed a break from the outdoors. .
We hired bikes and had a great time cycling around the cycle paths. La Flotte was a comfortable distance away, Rivedoux is a little further but has a lovely sandy beach.
We went cycling each evening after dinner alongside the vineyards and open fields with wild rabbits, pheasants and chickens for company. We loved staying at the Residence and had a really great holiday.
