Relax poolside in the shade of a straw umbrella on the stunning Île de Ré. Stéphane Heraudeau is looking forward to your visit.
“I love human interaction and communication, so I encourage a friendly and honest atmosphere in the hotel, making it a special place where life is good.”
Born on the Île de Ré, Stéphane wanted to go back to his roots to build on his vision of a friendly, people-focused hotel. He built the The Originals Boutique, Hotel de Ré hotel on a family plot right in the middle of the ‘Station Verte’ village of Sainte-Marie de Ré, five minutes from the island’s beaches. It is a comfortable, accessible and friendly 3-star Sainte-Marie de Ré hotel offering excellent value for money to those travelling for business and pleasure alike. It has spacious rooms, a terrace, a heated pool, sun loungers with straw umbrellas, a children’s playground, a pay-to-use car park and a meeting room, and offers a buffet breakfast. This homely and budget-friendly hotel has a ‘Station Verte’ green tourism award and is very special to Stéphane and his team: “our hotel was designed for everyone to be able to come and enjoy unforgettable holidays in the magnificent natural surroundings of the Île de Ré” .

SAINT-MARTIN-DE-RÉSurrounded by ramparts dating back to the 17th century, this port town features magnificent fortifications designed by French engineer Vauban, which are today listed as a UNESCO world heritage site. With its radially-arranged ramparts home to the port, as well as all sorts of shops, cafés and restaurants, this is now a thriving and bustling place. A visit to the bell tower offers incredible views across the whole town.
PHARE DES BALEINES LIGHTHOUSEAt 57 m high, this lighthouse is one of the tallest in France, and was built in 1849 on the western tip of the Île de Ré. The current model replaced the old lighthouse nearby, which was built in Vauban’s time and is now a museum.
CHÂTELIERS ABBEYFounded by Cistercian monks, this religious monument dates back to the 7th century and, over the course of time, has withstood the devastating effects of many wars. A one-hour guided tour will immerse you in the story of this history-packed place, and also includes a family-friendly game in which you’re invited to discover the monks’ secret.
