The Honey House in Loix

Aldo François and the entire Abeille de Ré team are happy to welcome you for a moment of relaxation and conviviality!

Located on the Île de Ré in the artisanal village of the commune of Loix, the Bee de Ré is a place of delicacies, flavors and discoveries.

It brings to life the passion of Aldo, the son of a beekeeper who, for 10 years, has taken care of his hives while trying to raise public awareness of the cause of bees.

Come share the life of these best companions of man and taste our productions: honey, honey crème caramel, honey biscuits, honey vinegar and homemade gingerbread…

You will leave with memories in your eyes and taste buds!
