"Christophe was an excellent host. Swimming pool and small bar a haven from a rather busy village centre. Even prepared a delightful platter of meats and cheeses one evening when we didn't get a booking in restaurant of our choice. Breakfasts very good too."

La Villa - Hôtel Bien Être is in the village of Le Bois-Plage-en-Ré, one of the oldest resorts on the French island of Île de Ré. Home to sleepy winding alleys lined with cottages and pink hollyhocks, it is bordered by vineyards, dunes, woods and over three miles of beaches.

The area is well known for its seafood restaurants and oyster farms. There are also lots of nearby saltmarshes, where fleur de sel (a delicate sea salt associated with France's Atlantic coast) is harvested, and a vibrant daily market selling local produce.

You can hire a bicycle from the hotel to explore the island and its villages (fees apply), hike through the dunes and woodland, visit the picturesque harbour or paddle in the ocean.

Facilities include a heated outdoor swimming pool (open June to mid-September), a Jacuzzi and a hot tub. There is also a spa where treatments are available (supplements apply). You can have breakfast on the terrace in good weather.

All rooms have a private terrace with garden views. Comfort Double Rooms have air conditioning and a bigger bathroom than Standard Double Rooms. Wi-Fi is free.

Lovely room and surroundings. The owners could not be more helpful and welcoming. We were close to all local facilities and were able to get a discount renting bikes through the hotel. A lovely holiday!

The welcome and attention to our needs was the best we have experienced and represents what a customer service should look like. Emelie and her husband were very attentive and friendly and doing this while looking after their young daughter just added to the experience.

The location is fine and the layout of the hotel is laid out amongst gardens which are lovely. We enjoyed the informality of it.

An absolute delight in every way, especially our hosts Christophe, Émilie and Constance. The hotel was charming and the cabins simple but very well appointed. The breakfasts were exceptional including home-made yoghurt and jams. The Ile de Ré was wonderful. All in all a now-favourite holiday destination for us, and highly recommended. We’ve already booked again!
