We are about to book our first holiday on Ile de Re for late August 2012, and can't decide between self catering properties in St Martin or Le Bois Plage as we haven't been there before. We are a family of 5 including 3 kids aged 9, 7 and 5. We intend to drive and bring bikes to get around. Got a feeling St M lovely for adults (restaurants, cafes, watch the world go by) but Le BP better for kids as nearer beaches? Any insight welcome!
