A picture-perfect French villa on enchanting Île de Ré
With its white walls, blue shutters and terracotta tiles, Le Clos Saint-Martin Hotel & Spa oozes classic Île de Ré style. At first sight it’s a quintessential 18th-century French villa. Yet as you draw nearer, the quirky sculptures that pepper the manicured gardens hint at a contemporary haven within.
Settle in to your elegant room, where vintage-style furniture is brought firmly up to date with minimal, modern colour schemes. Spend the day swimming in the two outdoor pools, or lounging on the terrace. Treat yourself to an afternoon tea in the lounge, or a beauty treatment in the exclusive Spa by Clarins. As evening falls, have simple, seasonal meals brought to your suite – or stroll into town to sample the famous Île de Ré oysters.Read more[SPLIT]Read less
When you’re ready to explore, hop on one of the bikes provided by this boutique hotel. It’s the best way to see Île de Ré. Cycle out to the Phare Des Baleines lighthouse, or to the salt marshes eco museum. Set off on a boat tour to imposing Fort Boyard, or learn the ropes at the sailing school. Play a round of golf in nearby Portes-en-Ré, or simply relax at the beaches that fringe the island. At Le Clos Saint-Martin Hotel & Spa, your holiday can be as laid-back or activity-packed as you wish.
Enjoy your stay!
