Unusual flavours, such as lemongrass, poppy seeds, and peppered raspberry, are among the treats discovered by readers in search of a holiday scoop
Legendary ice-cream shop La MartiniÃ¨re is on the quayside in Saint-Martin-de-RÃ©, and also has a quieter outpost at the far end of the island by the Baleines lighthouse. There are too many flavours to count: my three-year-old was bowled over by the simple vanilla, my husband by the local caramel fleur-de-sel (sea salt, for which the island is famous) and I couldnâ€™t get enough of the Ferrero Rocher and the peppered raspberry. Eat in La MartiniÃ¨reâ€™s garden reclining on the deckchairs, or stroll down to the lighthouse gardens and enjoy the view over the Atlantic as the waves crash onto the beach below.
