“Beautiful hotel nestled down a little street in Saint-Martin-de-Re. French country-style rooms with ambient lighting and white linens are filled with light from their private balconies. Roll-top baths complete the decor. There is a fragrant rose lined courtyard garden where breakfast is served.”

Hotel Review

La Maison Douce brims with all the local authenticity and charm you would hope for from a hotel in Saint-Martin-de-Re. Its picturesque 19th century building has been beautifully renovated with modern interiors. The rooms furnishings are simple and beautiful, carrying an understated elegance that you would associate with Il-de-Re. Start your morning with a delicious homemade buffet under the veranda before setting off for a day of wandering the quaint streets of Saint-Martin-de-Re or taking a trip to a nearby beach. Il-de-Rey is perhaps best to see by bicycle, so why not hire one and go on a day trip. A quiet wonder.
