In an attractive residential area to the north of Sainte Marie, Villa Nosybé enjoys a peaceful setting just a 3-minute stroll from the golden sands of Plage des Grenettes. Whitewashed walls and a pretty beach-house style give this single-storey property a fresh and spacious feel complemented by clean lines and a contemporary open-plan living area which opens onto the lovely terrace.

The walled garden is mainly laid to lawn, perfect for an informal game of boules or simply lying back and drinking in the vast Ile de Ré skies. A heated pool is a joyous indulgence, especially in the cooler months and the comfortably furnished terrace, complete with barbecue invites cordial alfresco dining, perfect before heading to the beach to watch the glorious sunset.

The Local Area

A paradise for beach lovers, Villa Nosybé’s proximity to the island’s west coast is a covetable USP. Plage des Grenettes is a wonderfully unspoilt natural stretch of coastline, popular with bathers and bodyboarders but never too busy to spread out and find a peaceful spot. Cycle trails lead north through woodland to the lively family-friendly beaches of Le Bois-Plage offering plenty of watersports and kids’ activities in July and August and the restaurants and shops of La Noue are just a 2km bike ride away. The charming harbour in La Flotte is also very accessible in around 15-minutes using the island’s cycling network and the capital Saint Martin can easily be reached in less than half an hour. The villa’s excellent position in one of the quieter corners of Ile de Ré suits anyone looking to enjoy island life as it’s meant to be – laid-back, charming and full of joie de vivre.

Our choice of French properties is diverse, ranging from simple charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.

To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
