One of the Prettiest Small Towns in Europe

Along with the Cinque Terre region of Italy, La Flotte in Ile de Re is one of the prettiest small towns I have visited in Europe. On Ile de Re every house has a strict colour palette which includes a choice of 18 shades of paint for the shutters and windows (blue/green/grey). All buildings are simple plan with red terracotta roofs. All houses are either white or cream and are adorned with beautiful flowers including hollyhocks. We visited in October so a lot of the flowers were no longer in bloom but you get an idea from my photographs. The old port area is so quaint and charming. It is really laid back with lovely residential areas. If you are looking for a really charming place to visit, check out La Flotte.
