WE LOVE

  • Waking up to this décor can’t help but put a smile on your face.
  • The small spa with organic ethos and treatments, indoor pool and outdoor sauna.  
  • The couple of rooms set on stilts close to the water.

DON'T MISS

  • Saint-Joachim archipelago. It’s a magical place for nature, peace and beautiful landscape lovers.
  • Terre de Sel. Walk through the salt marshes of Guérande with a naturalist guide.

THE BEST BIT

The restaurant! Brittany, Loire, the islands, and the more distant - stellar chef Eric Guérin makes you travel with Michelin-starred menus starting at as little as €45 euros.


NEED TO KNOW

Rooms: 15, spread between the cottage, the new building (around the spa) and the stilted shelter.
Breakfast: Impeccable continental breakfast with genuine local cheeses and ham, homemade jams, eggs on order (normal, there are hens all over the place) and nice pastries. Ideal to start the day.
Bar: Le Salon des Cages lounge.
Restaurant: Yes, that’s the best bit!
Pool: Small indoor pool at the spa.

Seasonality

Open year round.
