The pretty and popular French holiday haven of Ile de Ré offers a delightful European escape. Here are six great reasons that make it a bon voyage.
Ile de Ré is also noted for thalassotherapy spa treatments, which incorporate the reputed therapeutic powers of the local water, marine mud, seaweed and sand. Try it for yourself in a pampering session at local salons Relais Thalasso Ile De Ré, Le Richelieu or Thalacap.
Le Clos Saint-Martin Hôtel & Spa is one of the larger hotels on the island. Originally a manoir (a country manor estate), the hotel offers 19 rooms, 13 suites and a private villa surrounded by manicured gardens. The rooms are luxuriously decorated with a coastal twist on French provincial style. Last year, a Clarins day spa opened on the premises, making a stay here a truly indulgent experience in every sense.
