Hotels for Liz
Not a boaty type?
Our good friend Liz isn’t really a boaty sort of person. in fact the world of boats is an alien one to such an extent that much of that written in this diary isn’t applicable.
Liz is a First Class sort of person in every sense of the word: “Why stay on a lumpy, bumpy, slow, small boat when you can stay in a nice hotel that you don’t have to buy?”
So dedicated to Liz, and anyone else who doesn’t quite see the point of life on the ocean wave, I’m building a list of some of the finer hotels we have come across in our travel:
St Martin-de-Re, Ile De Re
Just off La Rochelle and connected by road bridge. A few minutes from the airport by taxi.
Hotel de Toiras. Right on the corner of the harbour. Step out of 5* luxury right into the crowd.
Rooms from €420 a night at the peak of the season.
Just a short walk away from the centre and away from it all is the Hotel Clos St Martin.
4* with room rates €210 to €560 in high season there’s something for everyone’s budget.
Le Palais, Belle Isle: The Citadelle Hotel. Superbly located in the Citadelle overlooking Le Palais and the sea.
Castel Clara, Belle Ile. Away from it all across the other side of the Island, a place to
you can spend some serious bucks here: it makes a mooring look good value for money.
