We booked because of the rave reviews on tripadviser. I won't repeat everything that has been said before, it is all true! We have never been so relaxed on holiday. Our room was spotless and kept that way all week. Large comfy bed - loved the fridge keep rose in and the quiet air conditioning. It's 2minutes from the beach.... More

An Alastair Sawday gem. We arrived on a National Holiday and we could not collect a rental car. No problem, M Gatta-Boucard picked us up at La Rochelle Airport. We had decided to forego picking up a rental car until we were ready to move on and go everywhere on Ile de Re by bike or bus. Good decision. We... More

We stayed for 3 nights early September. We found it through Alistair Sawday's website. What a truly lovely and tranquil place to stay. It was perfect. The hosts were charming and helpful. Everything was top quality and spotlessly clean. It was lovely having our own table and chairs outside our room. Each room opens onto the terrace overlooking the beautiful... More

We found this b&b through the Alastair Sawday website and were really very impressed by our whole experience. We had a very friendly welcome, the room was very nicely decorated, spotlessly clean and very quiet - even had a fridge to keep the local rosé cool! Lovely breakfast set up on the terrace outside our room and delicious bakery items... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of June. The French hosts were charming and were very helpful. We had the smallest room, that was reflected in the price but it was fine for us. We had a very nice shower room and beautiful high thread count bed linen and a very comfy and large bed with French... More

We visited this boutique hotel last August with our dog Rusty. The owner is charming. Its a lovely place on ile de re. has a nice swimming pool, unfortunately you can here traffic at end of the garden which I probably noticed more as we had just come from Cap Ferret which is very quiet. Ile de re is a... More

We stayed here on a long weekend (3 nights) and found this a very well laid out accommodation. Rooms are centred around the pool, with a sun lounger for all guests and each room with its own table and chairs. Its very relaxed and you can come and go as you please and help yourselves to tea/coffee in the lounge/breakfast... More

We stayed 2 nights and found it simply wonderful. Great rooms, terrific breakfast and a lovely pool and gardens - what more could you want. Well in the conservatory style lounge you have free access to quality tea, coffee, etc. We also made use of the free bikes to explore the Island. Our hosts were really friendly and helpful. Would...

This was a long weekend away for us, without children and with friends. Maison des Algues is run by a lovely french couple who make you feel so welcome and relaxed that you can't help but leave your cares at the door. All the rooms are very nice and open out onto a lovely heated pool and decking area. Perfect... More

Although La Maison is not situated in the prettiest of resorts on the Ile de Re, it is a lovely place to spend a few days. The rooms are centred around a good size pool, and the sunbeds are exceptionally comfortable, as are the rooms, which have been furnished simply but pleasantly. The breakfasts are appetising and delicious, and our... More
