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.
This hotel is open from mid-April to early October.
There are 4 rooms and 5 suites.
You can check-in from 3 pm. You can check out at 12 noon at the latest.
From 680 euros.
Children receive a plush donkey, symbol of Île de Ré, 3 lollipops and a fruit juice.
This hotel offers spacious and bright rooms, decorated in a contemporary style, combining both purity and sophistication. There are interconnecting rooms, ideal for families.
Our favourite is the Premier Suite, overlooking the beautiful street in front and the beautiful courtyard in the center of the mansion.
Unwind by the heated outdoor pool with loungers and umbrellas.
Enjoy a massage or treatment, hammam or Norwegian bath at the hotel's spa. There is a sandy beach about 2 kilometers away and a golf course 25 kilometers away. Visit the cozy fortified town of St-Martin-de-Ré. The ideal way to explore this flat island is by bicycle. There are several places in the area where you can rent bikes.
The tables against the trees on the lawn are perfect for a quiet breakfast.
Feel like the French and wear jeans (preferably white ones), boat shoes and a striped blouse.
In the morning, enjoy a continental breakfast with hot and cold dishes, served at the table in the breakfast room, in the garden or in your room. Taste different egg dishes and local specialties such as yogurt, jams, pastries, cheese ... 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. 'La Cave de Clarisse' stocks over 500 different bottles of wine, carefully selected by Eric Beaumard, 'vice-meilleur sommelier du monde' in 1998. You can compose your meal with the chef by buying your favourite vegetables, for example. You do need to request this 24 hours in advance.
