It's a few years since my two trips to the Senechal but it's still my favourite hotel in the world. The light streaming into the simple, bright rooms, having breakfast among the flowers in the courtyard garden, the thrill of having the little plunge pool to yourself on a hot afternoon... and the stunning island. Ars-en-Re is the loveliest village... More

This was the second time we have stayed at the lovely Senechal in Ars-en.Re and we will be back there next year. Situated just off the main square, this stylish hotel exudes coastal chic with simple but effective furnishings and adequate facilities. The owners are on hand and you are assured of a warm welcome. There is a small patio... More

I stayed at Le Senechal for two nights on my way driving down through France to meet a friend. I could not resist coming back here having stayed here a few years ago and loved it. The hotel is as calm and tasteful as ever. The management are very helpful and the room was very clean. Ars en Re is... More

Stylish eclectic design. The pool and courtyards were very nicely maintained. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is situated close to are en re square. I would definitely stay here again.

Charming, tasteful hotel. Very beautiful courtyards with lots of flowers in a beautiful area of France. We have now visited this hotel five times, twice having stayed in one of the little houses and always had a great time. Would definitely recommend!

Beautiful hotel, very simple and very sympathetic with it surroundings. I think its quite smart -shabby chic! The service was brilliant, young people very keen to help give an energetic vibe. The small courtyard garden overflows with flowers you can ea your breakfast there on a sunny day. Unlike St Martin there is no noise in the morning. We found... More

Totally agree with previous review ' A Charming Weekend'. This hotel was part of a road trip where we stayed for three nights. We unfortunately had a room facing the inner courtyard, it is a bit noisy when people come back to the hotel in the evening. The little courtyard itself is brimming with colouful flowers which we looked down... More

We arrived at the Senechal, on the western end of the Ile de Re, mid Saturday afternoon. From identifying the building, we found everything to be charming, relaxed, shabby but tasteful. We checked in efficiently and went to explore our room which we 'dressed' quickly with our things ready to greet our travelling companions. Comparing rooms we discovered that they... More

Senechal has great style and makes the most of its space. We used the patio which was freshly put together and felt very relaxing with its one courtyard. The beds are comfortable, kitchen has most things you need and the overall vibe is very good. Given the price, it would be nice to have more than one mini bottle of... More

Really, I cannot fault this awesome hotel. We stayed in the 'Loft de la Tour', a stunning two bedroom suite overlooking the famous black and white clock tower. It had its own tower room, kitchen, two bathrooms and was decorated in the gorgeous Ile de Ré style, with exposed beams, muted colours etc. The hotel itself is gorgeous, all hidden... More
