Photographer's Note

Classified among the most beautiful villages of France, La Flotte is located on the Ile de Ré. Sheltered from the ocean by the Breton sluice, it faces the Vendeé coast across the Baie de Pivot.

It was formerly an important fishing and commercial port and it was the prosperity resulting from this activity that built the splendid stone residences which border the quays. The lanes and sinuous alleys of the village, strewn with pink rose trémières, are very colourful and have a Mediterranean feel about them.
