The convenience of private parking

It is easy enough to find somewhere to park your car in Saint-Martin in low season, yet things are much trickier when the warm weather returns. Weekends, public holidays and, of course, the peak summer season with its unending flow of visitors transform Île de Ré’s capital. Meanwhile, the parking charge scheme comes into force from March till mid-November. 

To put it in a nutshell, the private car park at La Baronnie Hôtel & Spa**** is highly appreciated by our guests. Even more so given that on Île de Ré, most people get around by bicycle, a great way to relax while respecting the environment. 

Secure and accessible

Located behind the gardens in the hotel’s grounds, the car park is easy to access and reserved exclusively for our guests. Prestigious or classic cars are kept safe from prying eyes behind the esate’s high walls. 

Following Circuit #2 on the map below, as you enter Saint-Martin via Porte de Toiras, once past the city walls turn left down rue de l’Hôpital as far as Place de la République following the signs for La Baronnie Hôtel & Spa****, then head right down rue du Général Lapasset. When you get to the Stop sign, turn right then left to Clos Gilson where the entrance to the Hotel’s car park is located, indicated by a flag. Once there, just ring on the interphone and one of our receptionists will open the gate and come to greet you.

To make it easy for everyone to move around the car park, please keep within the parking spaces.

These indications are all given on the map sent to our guests with their booking confirmation.

A real asset at the heart of Saint-Martin

This service is charged at a rate of €20/day. A really reasonable price when you take into account the daily cost of street parking and the inconvenience of having to go down and top up the parking meter!

As the number of spaces is limited, we strongly recommend our guests to select the parking option when booking their room.
