The Residence Les Hauts de Cocraud with its heated swimming pool, is in a marvellous location just 100 metres from the sea and its characteristic oyster beds and just 1 kilometre from a sandy beach and the picturesque little harbour of La Flotte, reputedly one of the most beautiful villages in France. Stroll along the seafront, past the children's playground by the sea and you can visit the daily market, a truly medieval affair with a host of colourful stalls with cobbled streets or visit the village alleyways. Linger awhile in the pavement cafes, allow yourself to be tempted by all manner of charming shops and maybe sample the lovely fresh l...ocal seafood served in one of the many super restaurants.
Accommodation and facilities
Residence Les Hauts de Cocraud, built in 1996, is ideally situated alongside a watersports centre and within an easy walk of a sandy beach and the charming harbour and shops of La Flotte en Ré. This is a simple 2* hotel and holiday village, comprising 92 terraced, whitewashed houses, built in the island's traditional architectural style, each with its own enclosed courtyard. Children are well provided for with an outdoor heated swimming pool and a large grassed play area with climbing frame and table tennis. The village is completely pedestrianised, creating a safe and peaceful environment which is particularly appreciated by young families. For those interested in sports, there are water sports activities, golf course, tennis court and many nautical activities either nearby or in the surrounding areas and there is a Spa located 5km from the Residence.

Just a word of advice: the kitchen equipment is very French so you will have a coffee making machine and expresso cups but no kettle (although this can be requested from reception) and we recommend you bring your own mug unless you are happy to do it like the locals and drink your morning tea from a bowl!

The toilet is separate and is on the ground floor.
Every house has a private courtyard with garden furniture, which is a great place to relax over a coffee or an evening aperitif as the sun goes down.
All houses here benefit from a level of hotel service so bed linen and towels are included in the price and beds are made up for you prior to arrival. What is more, a mid-stay clean and an end of stay clean is included (excludes kitchen cleaning so don't forget the tea-towels and scourers!) making departure day so much more relaxed.

Hauts de Cocraud 4-6P - La Flotte en Re La Flotte, Poitou-Charentes, France
Additional Location Information
La Flotte has beautiful houses lining the pretty port, quaysides and harbour. Both here and in the village centre are many pedestrian streets. Stroll around the narrow streets of the centre! La Flotte presents an interesting contrast, between the beautiful residences aligned along the quays and the labyrinth of the small houses in the interior lanes. Do not miss the daily indoor markets of the old market hall. Then sit back outside a café and watch the world go by! Don?t miss the medieval market and then visit the Maison du Platin dedicated to the various agricultural and maritime activities of the island.
Formerly a small village of fishermen, the village was formed around the castle of Mauléons, close to the current church. Little by little, it grew around its developing port in the 18th century under Louis XV. The trade and the exchanges were very prosperous there as the beautiful houses on the avenue Felix Faure will testify.
The church Sainte Catherine's bell-tower reminds us that before the trains, the trading ships made stopovers here: Norwegians, Dutchmen, Spaniards and even Americans came to buy the famous Ile de Re salt, brandy, vinegar... The characteristic pier goes back to 1840; it extends its superb circular arm of over 200 metres long, with a 9 metre high lighthouse at its end, visible from 15 kms away.
