We had a great time at "Les Vignes". The staff were very friendly and helpful, also in regard to our little 4-month-old. The place is very cosy with about 15 smaller and larger terraced bungalows. We stayed at #9, which was a particularly nice one with a view on the courtyard and the Hammock and pool closeby (it also features on the pictures at http://www.lesvignesdelachapelle.com/nl/lodges-/de-lodge-cote-jardin.html). The place was spacious, very clean and with equipment of high standard. The pool area and reception/breakfast areas are also very nice and relaxing with a lovely view of the namesake vineyards and ocean 500 meters ahead.
We have one point of criticism: the additional prices. Although clearly advertised on the website, we find additional prices of €15/DAY for basically a baby bed and a little bath tub, and €13/person/day for (admittedly good) breakfast just too much.
île de Ré itself is a very nice place if what you're looking for is nice weather, relaxation and good food. It has some very nice little villages with plenty of nice food (crêpes and especially loads of fish) and lovely little harbors. We personally liked St. Martin and Ars the most. Closeby La Rochelle is also very pretty with its harbour area, old buildings and interesting aquarium.
All in all: highly recommended.More
