L’Ile de Ré is a thin sliver of land off the west coast of France near La Rochelle. Accessible only by an expensive toll bridge, the island is a popular place for holiday makers as well as for Parisians, French celebrities and politicians to buy second homes.
Ré vie (translation: Ré life) is very close to rêvie, the French for “dream”. This is highly appropriate.
