France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Best Hotels & Flats in Île-de-Ré, France
Saint-Martin-de-Ré is first choice for many visitors staying on the island, but there are many fine hotels, B&Bs, villas and rental flats/apartments in the island's other villages—and on the beaches—as well.




Île-de-Ré has lots of hotels, B&Bs, villas and flats/apartments for rent to accommodate its thousands of warm-weather visitors. Here are some of our favorites:


We enjoyed our stay at the 2-star, 28-room Hôtel Les Colonnes, facing the harbor in Saint-Martin-de-Ré. The family-run hotel was clean, friendly, and perfectly positioned for all activities. More...

The luxury lodgings on the harbor in Saint-Martin-de-Ré include the sumptuous 5-star, 20-room Hôtel de Toiras, with its own private garden and swimming pool right in the town center only steps from the harbor. Some aspects of the building date from the 1600s. More...

The 4-star, 33-room Le Clos Saint Martin Hôtel & Spa, a short walk west of the town center in Saint-Martin-de-Ré, has a private garden, two heated swimming pools, and a spa and treatment center. More...

A short walk inland from the harbor, the 4-star, 20-room La Baronnie - Hôtel & Spa, mansion-like hotel with a large private garden terrace, luxurious guest rooms, restaurant, a lap pool, sauna and spa treatment room. More...

The 3-star, 30-room Hôtel Le Galion, between the head of the harbor and the Vauban fortress a 3-minute walk from the center, is simple, friendly, value-priced, and supremely convenient. More...

Other Towns & Villages

Saint-Martin-de-Ré is not the only town with lodgings on the island, of course. There are plenty of alternatives in the other villages on the island.

For example, the 3-star, 19-room Hôtel Les Bois Flottais in the beach village of Le-Bois-Plage-en-Ré is perfect for a swimming getaway. The beach is nearby, but the hotel has two heated swimming pools, a hamam, massage service, bike rentals—everything you need for a relaxing sun& sea holiday. More...

Of course the Île-de-Ré has many, many self-catering villa and flat/apartment rentals available. Find the hotel, B&B or rental you want usingthis handy Hotel Search Box:
