    Our opinion

    A grand hotel with fabulous access to the seafront of La Baule, where families can enjoy the outdoor life and participate in activities.

    Hotel description

    An elegant grand hotel on the seafront of La Baule, Hotel Hermitage Barrière offers luxurious five-star accommodation on the brink of what is arguably the finest beach in Europe. With an excellent range of facilities on offer, including water sports, tennis and golfing possibilities, this is a superb family holiday destination in Brittany. Located in a magnificent beachfront position in the chic resort of La Baule – one of the most fashionable in southern Brittany, Hotel Hermitage Barrière has much to offer for short breaks and family holidays. Guests benefit from the grand style accommodation and access the magnificent beach of La Baule simply by strolling through the hotel’s well-kept garden and past the seawater swimming pool. Interiors are grand, evocative but very comfortable at the Hotel Hermitage Barrière. The 200 rooms and suites of the Hotel Hermitage Barrière are decorated to a high standard in a traditional style. Here, the variety isn't in room size but depends on the aspect out of the bedroom window. Choose from the Classic Room or Superior Room - some of which have sea views - and the Delux Sea View Rooms, which boast the best vistas in the house. Elsewhere within the property, the three restaurants cater for every appetite. The Eden Beach Brasserie enjoys a seafront position and specialises in seafood and fish dishes, La Terrasse serves more traditional gourmet fare and Les Evens offers salads and snacks in high season. Children receive the privilege of special menus from which to compose their own breakfasts. Room service is available for out-of-hours nibbles. There is a fitness centre at the hotel and other sporting activities are included in the price. These include access to the 29-court tennis country club, the training areas of the International Barrière golf club at La Baule and bicycle hire. On the beach, guests can even participate in an array of water sports activities, from catamarans to hobie cats, windsurfing and sea scooters. Families may also relish the chance to go horseriding on the beach. Children are well catered for at the hotel, and they are even welcomed with a small gift. The Diwi & Co Kids' club operates during the French school holidays and offers 4 to 12 year olds creative worskshops and activities at a fee. Youngsters may spend their time embarking on outdoor walks, sculpture, cookery lessons and poetry sessions. Babysitting is also available at the Hotel Hermitage Barrière. Early booking is highly recommended.
