Sarah Nemtanu and Île de Ré, a special connection

It was while visiting friends that the violin virtuoso discovered Ré la Blanche and the Charente archipelago. From now on, she can’t imagine a year without setting foot on Rennes soil. During her exploration, she realized that several places had fabulous acoustics, notably the church in Loix, and she loves contemplating the sunsets in October and strolling along the port of Saint-Martin-de-Ré, which she considers magnificent. Sarah Nemtanu loves theÎle de Ré for its infinite horizons that open the mind, its immense and varied landscapes, its luminosity and the aura of mystery that hovers over it.
