A wonderful location and the luxury of heated pool are the big benefits of Villa Clarisse. The decor is modern and classy, a contrast to the wonderful Toiras sister hotel. We had a suite, but it was not that extensive, more bedroom plus, rather than a suite and together with the charges for parking and breakfast etc make value for... More

True luxury is being able to own your time -- to be able to take a walk, to enjoy a great breakfast and read the papers, not to take calls, not be compelled by any obligation. If you have this luxury, then come and spend a few days at Hotel de Toiras located in the port of Saint Martin de... More

We chose the hotel from different articles we had read. We love France, but this was by far the best trip we ever had. We did not know the Ile de Ré and the hotel staff were just fantastic with making recommendations and organising things for us. We really enjoyed our bike ride! Our suite was just delightful. So pretty... More

Villa Clarisse with its ideal location and charming hosts, turned out to be the perfect location for a team building with colleagues. The expansive garden leading to the pool lended itself for a wonderful location to meet. This tranquil garden was also the venue for our lunch. The guest rooms are not only meticulous, but very smarly appointed. It is... More

We stayed in Hotel de Toiras and Villa Clarisse for 2 nights in Toiras and 3 in Villa Clarisse. Both hotels were excellent. The situation was perfect in both hotels, the Villa Clarisse have the advantage of a heated swimming pool although it is available to guests staying at the Hotel Toiras. The rooms in both hotels were of a... More

We recently stayed at both the hotel Toiras and Villa Clarisse for a holiday in Il de Re. Hotel Toiras is in an excellent location with a wonderful view....so much so that from one our windows our daughter could watch the fire juggling street entertainer in the harbour below. We had a perfect room with a mezzanine level for our... More

We have visited Ile de Re for the last five years and this was our first stay at Villa Clarisse. Having twice stayed at Hotel de Toiras (it's sister hotel) we knew to expect an excellent experience, and this is exactly what we got. The ambience differs from Toiras in that the villa is very contemporary, in shades of white... More

We spent an early summer 5-days holiday in a suite in Villa Clarisse (two adult and one child). The suite was beautiful. The garden of Villa Clarisse is so nicely arranged and we had breakfast there every morning. Very relaxing. You can expect being looked after by the personnel in a perfect manner. They help you out with anything you'd... More

This was our third visit to Villa Clarisse but many times on the Ile De Re. We have stayed in other establishments on the island but Villa Clarisse gives us the the style and decor we like (more Provence) the calm and tranquility and a near feeling of your own private villa. All the furnishings are of a high quality... More

Villa Clarisse is a beautiful property, well situated and an oasis of calm. The service is more than friendly and helpful and all the young staff were impeccably polite and well mannered. But this property sets itself out as a Relais & Chateau 4 * property and charges accordingly yet it provides little more than a B & B. The... More
