The H�tel de Toiras is exceptionally well located at the entrance to the port of Saint Martin de R�, the historical capital of the �le de R�. The fa�ades, typical of the old �le de R� residences subjected to the forces of the Atlantic Ocean for nearly four centuries, make the hotel an integral part of the activities and life of this harbour town and endow it with great natural charm.
The H�tel de Toiras harmoniously combines the traditions of Charente with the comfort of a luxurious hotel.
Right in the heart of the hotel, a small interior garden invites you to come and relax at any time of the day and enjoy the sweet fragrances of many different plants.
History and Regional Art are given pride of place in the hotel decor.

You can also admire many works related to regional artists like Pierre Loti or even Louis Suire.
It is an invitation to come and explore the historical heart of the �le de R�.

Luxury Hotel Accommodation
What is so special about the hotel is that it has managed to imbue the rooms with the history of a whole region. Each of the rooms in the hotel pays tribute to an important figure from Charente-Maritime, whether it be literary authors like Madame de S�vign� or Pierre Loti, painters like Louis Suire, Chapelain-Midy, Natter or even historic figures like Toiras of course, but also Samuel de Champlain, the Duke of Buckingham, Vauban, etc.
Therefore, the interior decoration is inspired by anecdotes from the history of each of these figures, their tastes, their works, right down to the smallest detail � special fabrics, paintings, reproductions, books, ornaments, etc. So, you can choose the room that best corresponds to your personality and tastes.
