Arrange a trip for two which ended up to be four, two cars drove in to the entrance here and everyone wanted to turn round. But what a surprise the rooms are divine, breakfast was amazing and the host was wonderful. What a treasure, it has to be experienced.

We visited Maison des Algues in August with our two young sons and my mum and stayed in the interconnecting family rooms, which worked very well. All the rooms open directly onto a terrace that surrounds the beautifully warm pool (it must be heated as whilst the weather was sunny it was apparently unseasonably mild) Jocelyn the owner was an...

we have just spent part of August touring France and La Maison des Algues on the Ile de Re was the jewel in the crown of what was a pretty fabulous holiday. An exceptional place, spotlessly clean throughout, wonderful hosts, and a great selection at breakfast. Decor is simple and chic. We loved it and we are looking forward to... More

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
