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. Here, the mast of a passing fishing boat may perhaps be the only thing to disturb your view of the setting sun.
The Hotel de Toiras stands along the port of Saint-Martin-de-Ré, a village listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and located on Île de Ré, a well-preserved treasure of the Atlantic coast. Each of the 20 rooms in this 17th-century former ship owner's house has its own unique décor, and its gourmet restaurant makes the establishment a destination like no other.
Just next to the village church and not far from the marina, the clean, bright décor of the Villa Clarisse embodies "Ré La Blanche". With nine rooms and suites, a magnificent garden and a swimming pool, this is the ideal place to enjoy a family holiday.
The Hôtel de Toiras is exceptionally located at the entrance to the port of Saint Martin de Ré, in the historic capital of Île de Ré. Chef Thibaut Peyroche d'Arnaud, a true enthusiast of place, takes you on a culinary journey at La Table d´Olivia.
