Villa Clarisse Ile de Ré, France

Completely different from the usual grand hotel, Villa Clarisse welcomes you to a historic, renovated 18th century mansion in the heart of old Saint-Martin-de-Ré.

Stay in the meticulously restored old mansion of Ferdinand Auguste Lapasset – one of France’s leading soldiers of the 18th century – and you will come to feel the typical soul of the grand houses of Ile de Ré.

You will also experience a feeling of total relaxation. The staff of Villa Clarisse welcome you as a respected friend and you soon feel completely at home amidst the luxuries of this unassuming hotel. The quiet, shaded garden offers a sense of tranquillity and peace that is further enhanced by lazing beside the swimming pool or indulging yourself in the spa – experiencing deep, Asian and Indian or bamboo energy massages.

Once thoroughly relaxed, you’re in the perfect position to explore the quaint sights and beautiful coastal countryside of Ile de Ré.
