We built Villa Les Ensemberts when our twin sons (now 30) were born. Emmanuel, a cartoon animator, shares his life between Kilkenny, Ireland, London and Denmark. Jonathan, an IT engineer, has created and is developing his own start-up in Paris: trusk.com (it is the Uber of small removals). I lost my husband in February 2012. After a career teaching English in Classes Préparatoires aux Grandes Ecoles, I am now retired and teach the refugees French in Paris.
Owner purchased this Villa in 1991
Why Owner chose Sainte-Marie-de-Re
We fell in love with Ile de Ré in the summer of 1989, our twins' first summer. Two years later we managed to buy one of the last seafront plots of land on the island. We had villa Les Ensemberts built in 1991, with my husband designing it and I in charge of interior decoration. The villa has been the family's summer place ever since and is constantly being refurbished, repainted and maintained in a perfect state, a challenge for this beachfront villa that was severely battered by the Xynthia storm in February 2010 and continues to be hit by storms every month of February. You will love the smell of the sea and light breeze every morning when you open the shutters of Villa Les Ensemberts!
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Les Ensemberts is literally on the beach /cliff, the views, sunsets, are fantastic. The heated swimming pool is a delight. The location on the Southern coast means it is protected from the winds. The secluded spot allows complete privacy. AN ISLAND OF FOUR SEASONS In September the tide continues to rise and ebb twice a day.Those who have the bright idea to visit out of the season never regret their decision: island life goes on with shops and services remaining open all year round. In autumn, visitors can admire golden sun-drenched vineyards and witness the grape harvest first-hand. In winter, the beaches empty to make way for horses and walkers wrapped up warmly against the wind.At Christmas, the oysters taste even better when they come directly from the nearby oyster beds. In spring the air is still cool when the first chairs reappear outside the cafés.
