By popular request we have arranged a return visit to this delightful island off the Coast near La Rochelle. The Hotel in St Martin de Re, on the Quayside that we used last time, is indeed somewhat quirky but really convenient as it is so easy to fall out of the door and start painting and is only a couple of paces to dash back for forgotten items or to deposit a masterpiece. For those who are not familiar with this little gem, it is very fashionable with the Parisiennes but not in any way sophisticated. A semi circular working fishing port, surrounded by small shuttered houses and cobbled quayside with an array of narrow streets leading off. There is a small beach and coastal walks through trees and sand dunes and sailing, fishing, wind surfing as painting motifs. After six nights we return to Dinard for two nights in a four star Hotel before catching the St.Malo Ferry home two mins from the Plage d’Ecluse and Promenade des Allies. Plenty to paint including a Huge Saturday Market or just simply lay back and enjoy it.
