Ars en Re is another beautiful little town of the island of Re. It is situated on the south side of the Fier d'Ars bay.
The town and its surroundings are dominated by the bell tower of the Saint Etienne d'Ars Church, a 40m tall structure that rests on a square platform, platform surrounded by a cornice and flanked by 4 turrets oriented on the 4 cardinal points.
The church was built in gothic style the 15th century on the site of a former 7th century one. The bell tower slightly tilted since a thunder struck it in 1840 is painted in black and white and served as a mark for the ships sailing in the nearby waters.
