A village with incomparable charm
The village of Ars-en-Ré is easily recognizable by its magnificent black and white bell tower, which rises to a height of 40 metres. It is even possible to see it from the bridge leading from La Rochelle to Ile de Ré
. The village is entirely articulated around its superb Romanesque and Gothic style church, built in the 7th century and used to guide boats to enter the bay of Fier d'Ars. The village is then made up of many quiet and warm alleys leading to a superb marina. Stroll along the quay and admire the spectacle of boats entering and leaving the port. Ars-en-Ré is also a huge foreshore where sea lovers can try their hand at fishing on foot and water sports.
