Five chic eco‑friendly hotels!

Want cosiness and refinement without sacrificing your environmental credentials? Treat yourself to a guilt-free stay in one of these five charming – and resolutely eco-friendly – accommodations.

A “Home from Home” stay at la Vinotière in Conquet

La Vinotière – Le Conquet

A “seaside house” atmosphere awaits you at la Vinotière in Conquet; a stone throw away from the quayside with easy access to the isles of Molène and Ouessant. Awarded the “écolabel européen” quality label, this hotel provides five welcoming bedrooms and two apartments; all equipped with a smart home control system. In addition, water flow regulators and energy-saving bulbs contribute to reducing energy consumption. With its clever mixture of ancient stones, wood and contemporary materials, the cosy interior decoration strikes the right balance between old and new. Take your seat near the fireplace to enjoy a breakfast or an afternoon tea where you will enjoy specialities – with low food miles of course – which are either made on the premises or bought locally. Set in its own turret, the jacuzzi invites you to relax!

“Casa Cosy” boutique hotel and ethical grocery in Le Pouliguen

Casa Cosy – Le Pouliguen

“Casa” because of the homely feel. “Cosy” like the interior decoration of its eight bedrooms, soft and inspired by seashores and nature. A stone throw away from the town centre and from Le Pouliguen beach, the Casa Cosy establishment is much more than a hotel.  This concept store also has a boutique offering beautiful home decorating items and gifts as well as a delicatessen which will awake your taste buds. Within a spirit of ethical buying and durability, local craftmanship and regional gastronomy reign supreme. All to be enjoyed comfortably seated on garden furniture skilfully made out of recycled wooden pallets. Want to explore the wild coast and the marais salants guérandais (salt marshes of Guérande)? Join us by bike which you can hire from your hosts.

Authenticity and “green attitude” at the Hôtel de Diane in Sable-d’Or-les-Pins

Hôtel de Diane – Sable-d’Or-les-Pins

Situated 100m from the large Sable-d’Or-les-Pins beach, the Hôtel de Diane combines authenticity with ecological attitude. This historical villa, built in a typical anglo-Breton style, offers 46 ultra-modern bedrooms decorated in warm, natural tones. Awarded the écolabel européen quality label, this establishment recycles all its wastes, promotes the use of green cleaning products and renewable energies. In addition, its “1925” restaurant serves fresh local and organic produce both on its breakfast and a la carte menus. So in season, come and enyoy oysters from Fréhel and scallops from Erquy… Two headlands, neighbouring the hotel which you must visit if you are in search of a huge intake of fresh air!

Feet in the water at the Manoir Dalmore in Port-Manec’h

Manoir Dalmore – Port-Manec’h

Ideally situated, the Manoir Dalmore in Névez, overlooks the beach of Port-Manec’h and its retro bathing cabins.  Entirely made out of stone and granite, this residence hosts ten bedrooms and suites; most of which benefit from a sea view. Period features such as exposed beams, wood panelling and alcoves are skilfully brought together by elegant colour tones. In this eco-hotel, operated entirely by renewable energy, all is at hand to reduce your impact on the environment: energy saving devices are routinely used, baths have been replaced by showers fitted with flow restrictors, towels are changed according to demand whilst shower gels and soaps come with minimum packaging. As for the garden, it lends itself beautifully to quiet contemplation.

Blending in with its surroundings, the Hotel-Restaurant-Spa La Désirade in Belle-Ile-en-Mer  

Hôtel-Restaurant-Spa La Désirade

Pink façades and blue shutters: typical colours of the “Belle-Ile-en-Mer” island! With its 32 bedrooms – out of which 4 suites are hosted in the small farmhouses, eco-hamlet style – the hotel-restaurant-spa of La Désirade blends in well with its surrounding. The skilful combination of wood panelling and soft tones creates the most cosy and soothing atmosphere indoors, whilst windows open onto a large flower garden. Set at the heart of an environment of outstanding beauty, this establishment uses an array of environmentally-friendly gestures to keep it that way: they closely monitor their water and energy consumption, use local responsible suppliers and recruit people from the island. Just settle in the spa and let yourself be lulled by the noise of the sea which is never far away!
