An ocean-side shelter flanked at the very end of a rocky point, with a Michelin starred pieds-dans-l'eau restaurant.
A the end of a winding countryside road near Névez, the Raguénez point, an immense beach and a little house with white washed walls and blue shutters: Ar Men Du. Step inside, you’re in a humble inn with a large seafront dining room and no fuss bedrooms – and that is just perfection, more would have felt wrong here.
Open from March to December
Double rooms start from 87 € per night. Use the calendar to find the rate and availability on a specific date and to book online.
You’d think that would be the location, but there’s even better at the Hotel Ar Men Du: the food! Chef Patrick Le Guen works with the best local producers to offer the outmost genuine raw materials in his Michelin starred cuisine. Try the sea bass “minute” tartar, the wild turbot, l’agape: raw fish and shellfish plate. For lunch, a light menu varies with the local market finds – best enjoyed when preceded by a couple of Oysters from south Brittany.
Rooms: 14 very simple and rather small rooms – all with sea view. They are styled like a clipper boat and coloured like a Gauguin painting.
Breakfast: Large breakfast buffet is served until noon (!) and presented on lovely locally handmade ceramics.
Bar: Yes, with a cellar that contains no less than 500 vintage wines to choose from.
Restaurant: Oh yes, that’s the best bit !
Pool: What would you do with a swimming pool here?
