Attention to detail is everything here, from thoughtful colour schemes to immaculate bathrooms and fresh lobster dinners

Read guest comments

The generous, open-hearted Bouquets are a family of perfectionists, and it shows in their beautiful stone mill house sitting gracefully at the water's edge, its sun terrace overlooking the mill race. The restaurant, with its crisp white tables and tankful of lobsters, has earned a huge reputation for finesse; the family hotel is charming. Enter a relaxed salon with a pretty stone fireplace, cosy leather chairs and fresh flowers. Spotless gleaming bedrooms with super sound insulation (against the main road) are traditional; those in the new wing, designed by talented daughter Maud, are ultra-modern and sleek with fluffy tactile touches (faux furs, cushions…). Choose between blue Jouy with bold pebble stencils or elegant antique sofas with rust-and-grey spots and swirls. Bathrooms are immaculate and gorgeous, too; the newest have a serene eastern feel. Neatly tended gardens line the entrance while thoughtful resting places invite you to admire the birds bobbing downstream. Close by are the smart islands of Ré and Oléron; if it's green peace you want, catch a slow boat up the Marais to the Venise Verte.

Guest feedback
"Spent a wonderful night at this charming hotel, and had one of the best meals we have eaten in a long time. The bedroom was clean, spacious and very well appointed, with a lovely big super comfy king bed. Dinner in the restaurant that night was delicious, with lots of little extras thrown in. Although the hotel is situated along a main road the rooms were all facing over the garden and marsh area, and were very quiet. The staff were all very friendly and very pleasant, and went out of their way to be helpful. Great little place, I am glad that we found it."
