Description from the manager
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 local...Read more
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.
