Marine purity on the north Brittany coast: it’s like a slightly snobby yacht club where you are an old member- expect a warm welcome from Madame Nicol and the rest of the staff. Nearly all rooms look out to sea – some with balconies or four-poster beds and all are stylish, cosy and filled with light.
Take breakfast in the dining room (there are lots of delicious choices) and explore the indoor seawater pool, treatment spa, sauna, hammam and gym; or book onto one of their yoga retreats or writer’s workshops. You have a choice of great restaurants – perhaps head to the brasserie overlooking the port for lunch and then dine on oysters on the terrace in the evening.
The garden leads down to the beach overlooking the bay of Locquirec; head off one way down the stunning coastal path to marvel at the Pink Granite Coast and the other to discover the Wild Coast. Take in the views or enjoy the surf (there’s a surfing school close by).
