"Like a Bridge Over..." Île de Ré by jakiline

Do not miss La Rochelle

I am fond of that light house in the town, unusual. In summer all the place around is only for pedestrians, and it is nice to walk: there's a lot of entertainment in the streets at night
There are plenty of restaurants (seafood), pubs, ... I haven't seen everything yet

Le Pont de L'île de Ré

We can walk, cycle free to the isle of Ré, but the crossing by car cost 16,5 euros. The Bridge is a beautiful building, safe.
The island is a paradise to cyclists.

A Light at the Far end of the Island

This lighthouse can be visited, and the view from the top is beautiful. It is located in the village St Clément des Baleines
Hope the History will meet you along your way across the island

    What a beautiful island. Unusual to have a lighthouse in the middle of town. Would love to walk the beach.

    I've imagined 257 steps up but didn't see a view from the top! Where is it? Waiting for a pic... Thanks - spasibo!
