See the Île de Ré, France, from the eyes of a local
Nathalie knows all of the ins-and-outs of this French island
Nathalie, as her username says, is a French girl living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In this distriKt, however, she takes us back to her native France and goes all over the Île de Ré, a place she has spent time since she was very young. She knows the island like the back of her hand, and her distriKt is a thorough guide to island secrets that she’s learned over the years. Thanks to her, we can imagine exactly what it’s like to visit this island off the western coast of France. She takes us through ice cream parlors, around the island’s port, above the city, on the beach; there mustn’t be a place she didn’t go!
Nathalie gets up close and personal with the history of this French island, taking us to gothic ruins and some ruined World War II bunkers. Don’t worry, though, her distriKt is full of fun! And did I mention secrets? She shows us some of the best night spots on the island, especially St. Martin, which are right on the shoreline and port. Of course, leave it to a Frenchie to give her own restaurant suggestions. Thank you for this, Nathalie! She confirms her savvy for quality restaurants with the discovery of a new eatery right on the water’s edge where she dined under thatch umbrella’s (a true island vibe). How could anyone not enjoy this?
Nathalie even proves many people wrong, as she shows us that there is a beach in St. Martin, contrary to popular belief! See what happens when you set your mind to “adventure” mode? Another gem Nathalie shows us is the charming downtown area of Ars-en-Ré, perfect for shopping of almost all kinds! Want to know what she does when she’s here? She’ll tell you step-by-step, secret-by-secret. Be smart and use this as a guide from a local who knows a thing or two, or three, or four (you get my point) about the island!
