    Our opinion

    Castel Marie-Louise ia a hotel offering charm, luxury and gastronomy at a beachside location.

    Hotel description

    A Relais & Châteaux property, the Castel Marie-Louise enjoys a reputation as one of the best gastronomic hotels in the region. This, coupled with its enviable location in attractive floral gardens opposite the sandy beach at La Baule, makes for an ideal location in southern Brittany. The Castel Marie-Louise dates from the 19th century and was once a private residence. It has been lovingly converted into a sumptuous, intimate hotel where the emphasis is on fine dining and hospitality. The 29 rooms and 2 suites of the Castel Marie-Louise are individually decorated with traditional furnishings in a period style. The fairytale ambience of the property is further enhanced by several four-poster beds, the abundance of luxurious fabrics, and the turrets that adorn the exterior. The friendly staff offer service of the highest order, and in the Michelin starred restaurant the chef imaginatively combines traditional dishes with more original creations using the best local produce that is in season. The dining experience can be made even more special by choosing a bottle from the wonderful wine cellar with the help of the Sommelier. If you can bear to drag yourself away from the tranquil grounds of the hotel, the chic resort of La Baule offers an array of leisure activities including a 45-hole golf course, thalassotherapy centre and numerous shops and boutiques. Its beach, deservedly acknowledged as one of the best in Europe, boasts nearly 6 miles of fine white sand. The Castel Marie-Louise is an ideal hotel for a gastronomic break or an intimate honeymoon.
