The villa is part of La Baronnie Hôtel and Spa, an Ile de Ré landmark. Although it’s totally independent, guests are welcome to enjoy the hotel’s verdant garden, the courtyard, bar and the glorious spa.
Big comfy sofas in the sitting room and the garden jacuzzi will be most relaxing after a busy day exploring. The galley-style kitchen is well-equipped for cooking and the local markets brimming with everything seasonal and delicious, especially freshly-caught fish.
Find shops in the hollyhock-lined streets of the old town and a bustling port where you can watch the fishing boats from a seat at a café. Do what the locals do and use the vast network of cycle paths to discover the island for a week.
