Verified guests have rated this hotel out of a possible score of 20

While seemingly everyone is perennially flocking to the Côte d’Azur, there’s a sizeable contingent that prefers a seaside getaway that’s a little less glam. Not to say the Ile de Ré is gritty, exactly, but the unpretentious little port town of Saint-Martin is a magnet for a certain set of urban sophisticates, from Paris and elsewhere, who prefer a charmingly ramshackle seaside town to the conspicuous extravagance of a Cannes or a Saint-Tropez — and if there’s one hotel that perfectly encapsulates the atmosphere of Saint-Martin-de-Ré it’s the Hôtel de Toiras.

It’s run by a veteran of the Parisian high-end hospitality world, and yet it’s refreshingly low-key, classic in style but never imposingly formal or off-puttingly opulent. She lends her name to the Salon d’Olivia, a clubby little drawing room next to the Blue Note Bar. Meanwhile George’s, the restaurant, serves an eclectic seafood-focused menu in a lively indoor-outdoor space.

Meanwhile the rooms, named for figures from the Ile de Ré’s past, are straight-faced and traditional — design is clearly beside the point here. What is entirely the point is the atmosphere, both within this classic small hotel and out and about on the harbor and in the town. Brittany’s Atlantic coast may still sound to some like an odd choice for a holiday — let’s try to keep it that way.

Please note: The hotel has a sister property, Villa Clarisse, around the corner at 5 Rue du Général Lapasset.

Saint-Martin's harbor is restricted during the high season. If you plan to arrive by car, the hotel will provide you with a property access code. Please contact for assistance. This hotel is implementing enhanced safety and cleaning measures as required by the Tablet Recovery Pledge. Our Customer Service team is happy to provide full details of each step being taken.
