Rest and relaxation at a modern hotel on the Île de Ré near La Rochelle, with a Thalasso spa and Michelin-listed restaurant - with breakfast, bike hire and spa perks
Peace, quiet and relaxation is guaranteed at Atalante Relais Thalasso & Spa Wellness Hotel, an away-from-it-all retreat on Île de Ré - which lies just off France’s Atlantic coast. If you’re looking for a huge swathe of beach, windswept walks and the restorative powers of a seawater pool, then you’ve come to the right place. On arrival, take a deep breath and you’ll soon feel the ozone working its magic. The hotel is housed in a series of pretty white, red-roofed buildings positioned between a large, empty expanse of beach and acres of vineyards.
Take a subterranean tunnel and you’ll reach Espace Hydromarin, complete with an indoor heated pool and thalassotherapy treatments. The hotel restaurant boasts two forks in the Michelin Guide for its classic French cuisine. Work off your lunch by hiring a bicycle from reception to explore the island and nip into the neighbouring town of Saint Marie for an authentic taste of French life.

Transfers may be arranged from Nantes or La Rochelle airport; please contact the hotel prior to arrival.
