Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Castel Marie Louise, La Baule

A Relais & Châteaux member, the 5-star 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.

About Brittany

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Brittany is a chance to explore this extreme western part of France, which has been known as the Land of the Sea as wherever you are in Brittany it is never very far away. The sea continues to influence the way of life in Brittany as it has done for centuries and provides much of the charm and magnetism for the visitor with dramatic sunsets over the ocean, the excellent diet of fresh fish, breath-taking seascapes and authentic fishing harbours. There are both rugged cliffs and sheltered coves on the northern coast of Brittany where sea and land seem to merge into one as you pass around headlands and inlets and islands appear in the sea in the distance. On the southern coast of Brittany miles of soft sandy beaches are the right ingredients for a family beach holiday and mediaeval fortified towns are perfect sightseeing centres. Our selection of luxury hotels in Brittany are all located close to the sea with panoramic views of beautiful coastal scenery. Brittany is perfectly located for a self-drive touring holiday due to its location in northern France. Enjoy a holiday exploring Brittany's coastal scenery or incorporate a stay in the region into a longer holiday in a different part of the country.
