Five chic eco‑friendly hotels!

Charm and sustainability combined

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.

In the blink of an eye

1. A cocoon overlooking the ocean

Ty Mad – Douarnenez

A little haven of peace. Between the pine trees, the sea and the cliffs, Ty Mad is a calm and elegant setting, perfect for a stay in Douarnenez! The designer renovation adds extra soul to this cosy residence, which cares about the environment and where the pretty rooms have a view of the sea and the GR®. It offers warm hospitality, dinner using fresh produce, a generous buffet brunch and a pool area that can be privatised. The beach is a 10-minute walk away, and the many hidden corners of the garden provide a calm sanctuary. Try it!

2. Exception and simplicity

La Butte – Plouider

Head to the northern Finistère, near Méneham and the Côte des Légendes, for a calm and contemporary break in La Butte. Solène and Nicolas Conraux run the place with an eco-responsible approach. Comfort and minimalism come together in this magnificent site with a view of the bay and the fields. It boasts a swimming pool and sauna, two bistronomic and gastronomic restaurants, home-made and local produce, a grocery shop and a bakery, all offering fresh, seasonal and carefully-prepared goods. In addition, it has an ecological label. An enchanted break!

3. Authenticity and « green attitude” 

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!

4. A family affair in southern Finistère

Manoir Dalmore – Port-Manec’h

A hotel with Scottish origins! Manoir Dalmore on the south coast, not far from Pont-Aven, is a striking stone and granite residence just above Port-Manec’h beach and its retro beach huts. This eco-hotel embodies the hospitality and atmosphere of large Breton family homes. Wood panelling and alcoves blend with the designer furniture and lively décor. The ten rooms and suites have a magnificent ocean view. Everything is designed for your well-being, from the sauna area to the organic and local breakfasts and meals. Let the charm work its magic!

5. Blending in with its surroundings

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!
