Sweep up the steps to the charming front terrace and enjoy an artisan rum. This 1929 mansion, built by an eccentric Portuguese heiress, has become a special boutique hotel. Take the train from Paris and wave goodbye to the car.
Palm trees and pines give this part of La Baule a very leafy charm. Named after the palms that surround it, the hotel stands on a peaceful street back from the beach. Shops, cafés and crêperies are a stroll away, and then there’s the beach: boats to sail, horses to ride, a creche for the kids, and miles and miles of white sands.
The independent group that owns the hotel are very much foodies and everything served is delicious and refined. Look forward to beautiful breakfasts, market-fresh produce, and fish straight from the sea. Cosy dining and sitting areas flow seamlessly together, and a lift takes you to bed.
