WHAT MAKES VILLA NOSYBÉ A GREAT HOLIDAY RENTAL:
- 3min walk to the local sandy beach of Les Grenettes
- 5min cycle ride to La Noue square (market, restaurants, daily shops, bike hire)
- Contemporary-style interior with new kitchen and modern furnishings
- Wifi and Bose sound system
- Small private pool to cool off in the summer months
The villa works best for a family with younger children and the space suits a family of four. Equally, Nosybé is an optimum size for a couple looking for a villa with its own pool (it's often the case that if you want a private pool then you have to rent a villa larger than you really need).
- Toddlers: very good > cot & high chair availalbe; safe beach just a short walk; pool is close to the house but does have electric cover
- Teenagers: good > wifi in the villa; walk to beach for body-boarding; quiet neighbourhood with limited nightlife
- Reduced mobility: good > accommodation all on ground level (and flat plot) but rooms are tight for space
ANYTHING TO WATCH OUT FOR:
- The accommodation is compact as is the garden & pool
- Just the one WC in the villa
- Please note that this villa books Sunday - Sunday
In light of the above we recommend the villa works better for a family of four (rather than the full occupancy of 6 guests).
WHY LES GRENETTES & ILE DE RÉ:
A chic and understated island destination connected by bridge from La Rochelle. Known for a lovely climate and authentically French, almost Mediterranean, feel. Dotted with charming harbour towns and character villages, connected by an extensive network of cycle trails which criss-cross the island through fields & vineyards, woodland and salt-marshes. It offers something for everyone: markets, boutiques, watersports (esp. sailing, surfing, paddle-boarding, kite-surfing), markets & food halls, fantastic choice of restaurants. And Les Grenettes is a peaceful less-well-known beach district in the village of sainte-Marie-de-Ré. This is a quiet part of the island and a peaceful retreat after busy days out discovering the island.

Compact & contemporary beach villa ideal for a family of four or for a couple
2019 new-build villa with 85m2 accommodation all on ground floor.
In case you were wondering, Nosybé derives from the Madagascan island of Nosy Be, a favourite destination of the villa's owners. In fact the neighbouring villa is under the same ownership and the plot was formerly the site of one of the island's few discotheques - apparently it's a well-known location on the island! It seems a little incongruous with the peaceful, residential surroundings and no doubt the locals are quite happy with the change.
You will see from the picture gallery that Nosybé takes a very modern touch to beach living. Everything is brand new (as of 2019) and the open-plan living room is particularly stylish.
Expect a clean & modern style and compact accommodation suitable for a family of two adults and two kids - the house will sleep 6 guests but bear in mind it's a relatively small property (85m2) with just one WC.

Nosybé is on a small-ish plot amongst the pine trees of Les Grenettes, a quiet residential beach district of Saint-Marie village. There's a few dozen houses and a holiday park here and it very much feels like holiday-home-at-the-seaside territory. The local beach - Plage des Grenettes - is a something of a locals' favourite: it's not one of the island's best-known and so it tends not to receive a big influx of tourists. Like much of the island, Les Grenettes has a laid-back vibe with its low-density single storey homes. The beach is just a couple of hundred metres away. For daily supplies and eating out, head to La Noue square which is little more than 5mins on bikes. Les Grenettes is also well-placed to access the island's cycle paths for exploring further afield - Saint-Martin and La Flotte are just a short bike ride away on the north coast whilst the villages and beaches of Le Bois Plage and La Couarde are a similar short distance up the coast on the south side of the island.
