What specific architectural features does your building have ?
Just like the pediment that fronts onto the street and the architectural details that can be seen from the alleyway, the Maison Cothonneau has a charming simplicity and stunning proportions. Located in the protected area of Saint-Martin-de-Ré which is also the capital of the island, the house serves as a perfect example of the Ile-de-Ré's heritage.
Places you would personally recommend
In Saint-Martin itself, I love the Bistrot du Marin (marine bistro) which is great value for money and, as the name suggests, it is located by the harbour. It is worth noting, however, that they do not take reservations. I also enjoy the calm and the beautiful setting of the Avant Port which is located by the harbour master’s office at the Daniel Rivaille dock. I would also recommend the Olivia, the Toiras hotel, the Relais and Châteaux de l’île.
