La Baronnie Hotel & Spa

Saint Martin de Ré (Ile de Ré), Charente-Maritime

Big elegant wrought-iron gates lead to the scent of honeysuckle and jasmine, and wonderful bedrooms awash with beauty and light


22 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


A step away from the harbour, a listed monument and a beautiful manor are linked to make one special hotel. La Baronnie, the “finest house on the island”, is over 300 years old. Jasmine scents the air in the delicious cobbled courtyard, and a wooden structure houses a massage room, a jacuzzi, a sauna and small pool. Inside, a stunningly beautiful sideboard is laden with breakfast goodies, from just-squeezed juices to an array of coffees, while an ornate iron staircase sweeps you up to big light bedrooms exuding country chic, finely tuned in gorgeous colours. Imagine pale rugs, thick curtains, elegant cushions, and antiques picked up in brocantes over the years. Some rooms overlook a courtyard and the quietest face the gardens, which are magnificent. Adorable Florence, the ever-attentive owner, knows her island well, its nature and history, its beaches, cycle paths, sand dunes and pines: she helped lead the rise in St Martin’s popularity. Perfect for a spoiling weekend – or more: the little town teems with chic shops, restaurants, bars and atmosphere.

Firat time visiters to Ile du Ré and we will definitely come back. What made our experience excel all expectations was the lovely hotel La Baronnie. We stayed for two nights and enjoyed our wonderfully comfortable superior room, fantastic surroundings, great breakfast, bar and lovely and helpful staff. We will come back!

I dream of staying in the "Sevigne" room - an amazingly untouched listed c18th interior with the panelling and faded paint intact. This hotel has been crafted from two mansions in the middle of the utterly charming town of St Martin en Re, just a few steps from the port and a short drive to the beaches. A perfect address in a perfect seaside destination.

Nicky, Sawday's inspector

This is the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in - absolutely beautiful historic old house and walled garden, delightful staff, elegant rooms - well appointed but still with a feel of being in someone’s home rather than a hotel. Breakfast in the sunny courtyard with roses and hollyhocks all around and just a stones throw away from the stunning port of St Martin - it is idyllic.

Alison, Winchester

Our second time staying here having enjoyed it so much last year came back with the family for an extra few nights - the staff Joachim & Fanny in particular couldn't be nicer or more helpful - breakfasts are lovely - gardens and bar truly quaint and the location is brilliant - only negative is WiFi/ phone signal is poor but other this would recommend highly
