If you are looking for a cheap dinner, try somewhere else. On the other hand , if you want to taste exquisite cuisine , this is the pace you need to visit. Amazing tastes , excellent relaxing environment , something that you will not forget.. Merci beucoup !

"dont forget your swim suit" - that's the warning we got on the booking email ; these confusing words were probably on purpose, but there is no swimming pool there ; however we have been harassed by 3 phone calls before arrival to book for beauty care ; now, customers are fed up with so-called "spa" (there is a need...

Great location, very interesting and comfortable building, well executed, good creative cuisine, solid service, all coupled with a wonderful breakfast; but there is room for improvement. The room we had in the garden behind the main building was fine, but internet connectivity was extremely poor and unreliable. Moreover, our fears about being woken at dawn by the cock hens in...

Our second visit to confirm the delight of our first visit. The 1st visit was booked last minute to rescue a bad holiday and it worked a treat. The 2nd was arranged to indulge ourselves on the way back to catch the ferry from Roscoff. The location is ideal in breaking the journey from mid/South France in using the the...

Quite expensive and I think a bit overrated for a 4 stars. BUT the restaurant is fantastic ! The room was very clean but no air conditionning, and you have to go through the restaurant to get into it... Also the SPA is like 100 meters away from the Hotel.

Even better than some 5 *****! Location: beautiful, gorgeous nature! One hour drive from Nantes, it's not exactly in St Joachim, it's in the place called Ile DE Fedrun, mind that when you drive in.search of this hotel ( it's npt.hard to find actually) Nature: separated story! Trees and water, yards of hotel, skies and surrounded small towns on Bretagne,...

I was looking for a nice table to invite my parents. We left early and made a stop to Guérande, then drove to La Mare aux Oiseaux. Without GPS and and in the dark of the winter, the place was not easy to find. But finally we reach to the goal. We all choose a la carte and add great...

Tucked away on an island in a bird sanctuary this master chef has created a cosy hideaway in his rush thatched hotel. There are many birds around though all safe in their cages. The staff without exception worked hard to please - nothing was too much trouble. The food looked great and tasted better. The blind wine tasting with special...
