Villa Clarisse

Villa Clarisse

In the middle of Île de Ré and in the heart of the fortified town of Saint-Martin-de-Ré lies one of the island's most beautiful hotels, Villa Clarisse. You are at the marina and the bustling heart of the town in no time. Respectfully restored a few years ago, the 18th-century mansion offers its visitors pure relaxation and blissful sunlight. You can also - if you ask enough in advance - create your own meal in consultation with the restaurant's chef!


Caractère customers receive fruit and a bag of caramel candies with salted butter. Newlyweds enjoy a VIP reception with a bottle of champagne.

The trendy restaurant 'Le George's', located in Hotel de Toiras about 350 meters from Villa Clarisse, with large terrace and view of the little harbour offers light cuisine based on local and fresh seasonal ingredients. Here the emphasis is on the culinary treasures of the sea, accompanied by the best regional wines. In the 'Salon d'Olivia' with patio, you can enjoy a drink or various teas in a quiet atmosphere.
