Discover the breathtaking beauty of Belle-Île-en-Mer while enjoying accommodations that combine modern luxury with a medieval flair.


There aren’t many lodging options that feature a real dungeon on site. Don’t worry, you won’t get locked in for the night but the dungeon at the Citadelle Vauban Hotel-Museum (hôtel-musée) will certainly make you appreciate the luxuries offered during your stay. All of the spacious rooms at the Citadelle Vauban feature modern furnishings with a touch of medieval decor.

The Citadelle Vauban represents over 1000 years of history and was once a fortress that protected the island. Now, remnants and representations of its past history, such as stone walls, elaborate doors and the dungeon, make a stay here a historical experience you won’t soon forget.

Open from May to September

Double rooms start from 125 € per night. Use the calendar to find the rate and availability on a specific date and to book online.
