Travel Guide Ile de Ré Get to know Ile de Ré

Celebrities

Sandy beaches, marshes and other paradisiacal places on Ré island do not end up seducing the richest as well as the most humble. Celebrities also fall under the charm of this pearl of the Atlantic and many became enthusiasts of the region during the holiday periods and some even took up residence there.

If the island attracts so much stars, it is because of the discretion and tranquility they enjoy. Since the 1960s, the greatest names in TV, music and politics have been seen on the island. Johnny Hallyday, Julien Clerc, Dany Boon and Lionel Jospin all enjoyed a moment of tranquility while passing Ré island.

It must be said that the 18 000 souls who live on Ré island are very riding on the respect of intimacy. Merchants and restaurateurs are very discreet and rarely mention the stars who frequent their establishments. As for the tourists, they are dazzled by the beauty of the landscape and are so busy with the various activities of holidays so that the celebrities pass almost unnoticed. The passage of Hollywood stars like Orlando Bloom of the trilogy of Lord of the rings or Kim Raver of the series Gray's anatomy is hardly noticed.

Ré island has become a real refuge for some showbiz personalities who seek to get away from the media noise they are subjected to, for a weekend or a few weeks. Many of them own houses. If Patrick Bruel and Thierry Lhermitte have chosen to settle in Loix, in the heart of the salt marshes, others have settled by the sea, such as Chantal Goya, Nicole Garcia, Fabrice Luchini, Nathalie Baye Gérard Hernandez.
