Restaurant Christopher Coutanceau
Restaurant of a Grand Chef Relais & Châteaux on the seafront
Concurrence beach stretches out at the foot of this veritable beacon of gastronomy in the Charente. Nothing is left to chance here. Just imagine a world where your pleasure comes first. The clocks have stopped on this Relais & Châteaux road to happiness letting you share a memorable experience. Today Christopher, the son, is in sole command. He has been strongly influenced by his father's legendary culinary rigour on which he puts his own personal stamp. However, the “hallmark signature” of the restaurant has not changed: superb seafood, sourced that very morning at the harbour market, creativity and passion for fine dining. Dare to ask for the secret behind that Breton lobster stew in shellfish butter, or for tips on how to recreate in your own home a crispy line-caught sea bass in a shellfish foam.

L’Hôtel de Toiras & Villa Clarisse
Hotel and restaurant in a village
The beautiful island of Ré is really worth a visit. Among the charming ports linked by a network of pathways to be explored by bike, crisscrossing the sandy earth, Saint-Martin-de-Ré, surrounded by the Vauban fortifications, is the best place to stay. The hotel is a 17th century shipbuilder’s residence with windows overlooking the port, near the fortress by Vauban, a Unesco World Heritage site with spectacular views of the Atlantic. You might also want to stay at Villa Clarisse, an 18th-century townhouse located a stone's throw away, with magnificent gardens, views of the old town and a heated outdoor pool. Here, the mast of a passing fishing boat may perhaps be the only thing to disturb your view of the setting sun. ...Read more
