We are looking to go to probably Ile D'Oleron or Ile de Re for 4 nights in August en-route elsewhere but am feeling completley bamboozled by the websites. Don't know where is go, where to stay... We have 2 DC who are both under 6yrs so will need a family room or the like. Want to be able to just play on the beach with the children, eat out at lovely places and generally relax. Anyone out there with some suggestions? Much appreciated

Thanks CestTout. Have replied by PM (I hope!). Really helpful suggestions and tips. Hotel booked and have looked at webcam- getting v excited and must remember is still 7 months away! Having to type this on phone as no computer access at present but might come back to you. Thanks again, and for everyone's help.

Hi! Just been to ile de re and was so nice grin. Lovely weather, chilly at dawn really need to put a jumper on.
With the folks we've been riding to the beach, to the markets, to the top end of the island quite easily. We stayed in a hotel in saint martin, most busy village cutest too. We are a family of 3 and it was 119 euros per night in this lovely hotel: www.hotel-lajetee.com/en/ it has a very great location. Definitely a good bargain on a quite expensive island. Will definitely go to ile de re again in a couple of years starstarstar
