Win a perfect break for two in Ile de Ré and live the island life!

The crown jewel of the Atlantic coast, Ile de Ré has managed to conserve its historic charm and authenticity - and we're offering you the chance to win two relaxing nights there for two people. You'll love the beauty of its well-conserved landscapes and its villages with their small, white-painted, green-shuttered houses on alleyways suffused with flourishing hollyhocks.

The lucky winners will stay in a three star hotel in St-Martin-de-Ré, a town perfectly situated to reach all the different sites on the island. With over 100km of cycle paths, the island is a paradise for two-wheelers. Bikes are the perfect way to discover all the best bits, so you'll have two bikes at your disposal the entire time.

Throw in all its expansive, fine-sanded beaches and an exceptional climate - and you'll experience the perfect balance of relaxation and adventure on your trip to Ré!
