FANS OF THE IDYLLIC FRENCH ISLAND of Ile de Ré (off the west coast of France, across the bridge from La Rochelle) will be interested to note that Olivia Mathé, the wife of Ex-Four Seasons George V, Paris General Manager, Didier Le Calvez, owns the gem-like L'Hôtel de Toiras, which has just created three exceptionnal new seaview rooms of immense style and quality (Can we see a little Le Calvez influence here?). "George Washington" is my favourite, but all three look tempting. Dinner can be custom cooked, according to the day's fresh market produce and your desire. Simple, yes, isn't that what luxury is all about these days? www.hotel-de-toiras.com
