“Luxurious accomodation at luxurious price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

My wife and I had a lovely relaxing 3 nights at Villa Clarisse at the beginning of August. This being our first stay on the Ile de Re I didn't know what to expect in terms of the balance between 'lively' and 'peaceful', but the Villa Clarisse provided the tranquility and luxury which you would expect at the price! The previous reviews summarise what is excellent and not-so-excellent about the hotel. However I think that the staff must have learnt from the comments posted - we found them knowledgeable, courteous, helpful and efficient at all times. We were hooked up to wi-fi within 2 minutes of asking for it! A note on the piscine and surroundings which have been mentioned in previous reviews - it is lovely but perhaps the area is not quite big enough to accommodate residents from the two hotels on a busy day. Overall though, it was a lovely experience from start to finish.

Room Tip: Room 4 ground floor suite - looks out on to both terraces. Excellent and convenient position if ther...

Nice luxury for a few days. Beautiful rooms and fabulous setting, just a few minutes walk from the harbour. Wonderfully quiet and relaxing. The young staff are very friendly and helpful, but seem to be inexperienced for this level of hotel - we often had to ask several times to get what we needed e.g. Internet router in our room. Good breakfast, but again, the service was a little chaotic. I would definitely recommend this villa but they need to train the young staff a little better.

A wonderful location and the luxury of heated pool are the big benefits of Villa Clarisse. The decor is modern and classy, a contrast to the wonderful Toiras sister hotel. We had a suite, but it was not that extensive, more bedroom plus, rather than a suite and together with the charges for parking and breakfast etc make value for money a challenge. This place is expensive. The staff were all young when we were there and although enthusiastic we found them inexperienced and standards below normal for Relais Chateaux. We always had to ask for towels for the pool, had to ask a couple of times for sufficient supplies for the bathroom etc. and then they didn't come first time......however the most notable experience was when the laundry was being collected and our car delivered from the parking. A small traffic jam ensued, horns were blared and the young lady on reception chose to hang out of the window and give the driver the finger in front of somewhat startled guests.......

Room Tip: Bigger rooms did not seem worth the premium prices.

True luxury is being able to own your time -- to be able to take a walk, to enjoy a great breakfast and read the papers, not to take calls, not be compelled by any obligation.
If you have this luxury, then come and spend a few days at Hotel de Toiras located in the port of Saint Martin de Re
Tradition and style are combined for a great escape
The staff are nice and welcoming
I even purchase a gift card for friends to stay: it is a great way to renew with authentic hospitality!
Thank you for all!

We chose the hotel from different articles we had read. We love France, but this was by far the best trip we ever had. We did not know the Ile de Ré and the hotel staff were just fantastic with making recommendations and organising things for us. We really enjoyed our bike ride! Our suite was just delightful. So pretty luxurious and comfortable. spacious and great value for money. We had lovely weather so made the most of the pool and charming garden. This is definitely a 5 star experience.

Villa Clarisse with its ideal location and charming hosts, turned out to be the perfect location for a team building with colleagues. The expansive garden leading to the pool lended itself for a wonderful location to meet. This tranquil garden was also the venue for our lunch. The guest rooms are not only meticulous, but very smarly appointed. It is not only a chic address, but so very friendly and inviting. You must go.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the garden would be my favourite.

We stayed in Hotel de Toiras and Villa Clarisse for 2 nights in Toiras and 3 in Villa Clarisse. Both hotels were excellent. The situation was perfect in both hotels, the Villa Clarisse have the advantage of a heated swimming pool although it is available to guests staying at the Hotel Toiras. The rooms in both hotels were of a very high standard. However what makes these hotels so memorable are the staff who run the hotels. They were all wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble, they were all helpful and cheerful at all times. Made recommendations for restaurants, places to visit and even parked your car for you (of which there is a charge).
It very quickly became like staying with friends.
We will definitely return
