    “ Très bon séjour. ”

    On the 2019-07-10 by Clémence
    Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine sur l’ile de Ré et recommandons ce circuit. L’hôtel et le restaurant étaient également très bien. Nous avons bien pédalé sous un ciel bleu. L’ile est plate donc pas de côtes à grimper et il y a énormément de pistes cyclables sur toute l’ile !

    “ Belle île de Ré ”

    On the 2018-08-25 by CLAUDE
    Très belle destination, paysages de rêve, pistes cyclables à foison. Mais préparez vos kits de dépannage et vos rembourrages de selle.
