I visited Hotel Le Senechal with my brother and two sisters about a week ago, and we all were bowled over by this fantastic hotel and by the absolutely outstanding service we received. The hotel is charming and wonderfully designed with many, many cool details. It is worth taking some time to look around. It is located right in the... More

A great renovation to an old building, our room was large, comfortable and cleverly decorated. Lovely flowers in the multiple courtyards where breakfast is served. Right in the centre of a beautiful village with a choice of good eating places close by. The view on to the square is great but if noise worries you choose a back room. Excellent... More

This is my second trip to the beautiful island of Ile-de-Re and we decided to stay somewhere different from Saint Martin where we were last time. Ars is much smaller and very cute and the Hotel has been an absolute pleasure! Its shabby chic style is charming and the little decor details make it warm and homely. We love the... More

Sombody very creative designed this place. Prices are steep but the charm of the place is captivating. The pool is super small but this is not what you (should) come here for. It is next to the church in historic ars en re so it is obviously not a big resort. Cannot complain about the service - don't expect asian... More

We enjoyed our stay last year, but regretted taking a small room on the very noisy street / front side of the hotel. This time we splashed out for the massive loft apartment style room approached by its own external stairs and terrace. A vast volume with polished concrete floor, intriguing lighting and an open fire, which we lit. A... More

We have just stayed 3 nights here and whilst the hotel is very nice some of the rooms are very small and a little cramped, style is shabby chic and comfortable; On making our reservation we were informed that our room "overlooked a quiet village street" unfortunately this turned out to be quite the opposite! All night long we had... More

We spent two nights here in the Loft de Hotel at the end of May. Staff were polite and friendly. The loft was spacious, very well designed and so relaxing we were inclined to spend more time in the room than usual. The internal courtyards of the hotel provide a small pool and tabled seating areas. These spaces are beautifully... More

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
