It's one of the island's best and most popular villages thanks to its winning combination of lovely village square (with the island's best food hall) and excellent family-friendly sandy beaches. What's more, being centrally located on the island it's easy to explore the rest of Ré's delightful villages and beaches - mostly on two wheels of course!

Villa des Princes enjoys a highly convenient location in the heart of Le Bois Plage just a short level stroll from the village centre (covered food hall, outdoor market, shops & restaurants). The local area is quiet & residential and features character townhouses lining the delightful lanes for which the island is famous. Properties are tightly-packed in but that's the island style and the walled courtyard-style gardens ensure privacy. To reach the beach it's an easy walk of 10 minutes whilst the island's capital and UNESCO site, Saint Martin de Ré, can be reached in 15 minutes by bike. Le Bois is centrally located on the island which makes it the perfect base for exploring its beautiful villages and many beaches.
