The rooms were comfortable and quiet.The restaurant served varied meals of a high standard and the wines were a fair price. All of that in an ecofriendly context!

Lots of beautiful places in Bretagne, lots of them by the ocean. But La Gacilly Yves Rocher hotel is just an amazing way to discover another part of this exceptional region. In the middle of nature,this eco friendly hotel has a very special and relaxing architecture and design. everything is done to unplug from all source of stress and to rest. the view is just nature, but after a few hours you can feel the impact of this zen attitude.

You also feel blissed when enjoying meals at the restaurant : delicate, gourmet food, with a lot of creativity ( but not too much ). High quality service. Wonderful pool. La Gacilly is a charming little village and in summer, the photography exhibition ( on the walls of houses ) is a great way to spend 2 hours walking around.

The hotel prides itself on its ecofriendly credentials and lives up to it. We had the ‘coup de cœur’ package which includes a glass of champagne in the bar which has excellent views of the surrounding countryside and a gift-package of Yves Rocher toiletries (they own the hotel) as well as b & b, three-course dinner and use of the pleasant indoor heated pool. There is a short walk through woods into La Gacilly, a pleasant old town: downhill going but a bit of a climb to return.

La Gree des Landes is almost placed in the middle of nowhere, and that’s one of the things that makes it so relaxing, but it is definitely within walking distance from the beautiful village of La Gacilly.

The rooms are very modern, everything is eco friendly, the pool and spa area is very nice and the bar and restaurant is very relaxing.

his little jewel just breathes elegant zen! From the minute I stepped on the property, it was a great experience. The food is delicious, the spa service is great (first real massage I’ve had in France) and the property is breathtaking. The staff are also very welcoming helpful. We didn’t spend much time off the property and never had the feeling of being in a resort (again, the design is sUperb!). The best part: Ecofriendly all the way. A must do!

Ideally located near Guerande, rooms are large and very clean. The ecofriendly concept is everywhere. Breakfast is good with local products. Free wifi. Free parking.

Ecofriendly budget hotel. New, nice and well worth the price. Very quietly located and still close to the highway. Good bed/ duvet/ pillows all eco-cotton. It just feels good to stay in this hotel.

Absolutely recommended if you travel through this beautiful area of Bretagne. Guerande is a medieval town, worth a visit.

Although located on an industrial zone, this hotel is just the best value for money. Super-friendly staff and spotless accommodation.

Excellent good-value continental breakfast which we took outside on the patio with as much to eat and drink as you wished. En-suite shower room was pristine with a great power-shower and clean white towels.

Could not fault this wonderful hotel and wish there were more places like this in France. Very close to the walled city of Guerande (well worth a visit) and just a few miles from La Baule, this hotel is well placed to explore this part of France.

This is a no frills hotel, so don’t book this place expecting The Ritz. However, if you are travelling on a budget, or you need a stopover on your way north or south, then I can’t recommend this place enough.

Welcoming hotel 3* with 29 custom and comfortable rooms (TNT television, free wireless access). In winter, let yourself be tempted by our seating area. In summer, our pleasant and sunny terrace will have your favors. Ability to advise you in your visits : on foot, by bike, by car. Public parking (50 m) 3 €. Pack lunch, bike renting, no queue tickets for Blois (castle, sound and light show, magic house) and chateau Chambord.

An historic hotel with loads of character, no lifts or aircon but very charming and comfortable.We paid extra for a triple room (double bed with a sofa bed) and as there was only the 2 of us plenty of room. Bathroom had been refurbished but still shower over bath.
This hotel has an arrangement with a local company for bicycle hire and we hired bikes for 3 days and cycled through the many cycle paths in the Loire valley, visiting castles and Chateaus.

The hotel is only about 200 metres from the train station.

We stayed here one night on our trip through the Loire Valley. The château de Blois was one of our destinations and Hotel Anne de Bretagne is conveniently located within walking distance of the castle and the downtown pedestrian area. Our room was clean and adequately sized with a window overlooking the front of the hotel. The Internet worked great. The woman at the front desk was very helpful and we were able to park near the front of the hotel for free.

The best part about this hotel is the service. The owners and staff are very professional, kind, and provided great recommendations for restaurants and shops in town. The location is super convenient to the train station (only a few minutes walk). And, another big plus was how accommodating the hotel was to bikers. We had rented bikes for a couple of days and the bike rental company and the hotel coordinated everything without me having to do anything beyond make a bike reservation.

The rooms are pleasant and the bed was quite comfortable. All in all, a great option in Blois at a good price.

Near the Blois castle, on a quiet road we found Hotel Anne De Bretagne, a charming building, covered in flowers. The receptionist was extremely helpful in assisting us, and we checked in to our triple room on the second floor. We found the room to be very comfortable, with two bathrooms, clean and with nice design. Our windows overlooked the quiet street and the trailer park (we didn’t hear a sound from there, though the park was rather fool with trailers of traveling families).

The nights were so quiet, we wondered in the mornings that we haven’t slept so well in years :). There was a distant sound of trains coming from the nearby railway, but I didn’t find it at all disturbing. The hotel has a free parking space, so there’s no problem with finding a place to park our car. Wifi connection was good as well, you just have to ask the reception for a password. We didn’t try breakfasts at the hotel, because we chose to buy food from supermarket and eat on our way to various castles and towns.

When we decided to stay two nights more, the hotel had to available rooms, though they proposed to locate us at their sister hotel nearby, which was also a nice small hotel too. I’d recommend this hotel for those to want to stay in a small authentic charming hotel with a French feel, which so well fits in the gem of Loire Valley-Blois.

Old stones, studs, and eleven rooms decorated with unearthed furniture, warm and cozy colors. A sense of well-being will surround you. The large fireplace in the lounge will invite you to dream; comfortably seated in sofas, you will allow yourself to settle and relax, and enjoy the gaze and warmth of the fire.
You will also abandon yourself to the delight of the SPA: in the sauna and the steam room, you will experience a moment of pure relaxation. You will enjoy Jordan’s table, where you can appreciate gourmet and seasonal cuisine.
We stayed at Manoir de Surville for 4 nights and loved everything about it. Camille and Hugues work so hard to create their vision of an eco friendly, natural and organic lifestyle. The accommodation is both traditional in style but modern in facilities. They have the most wonderful chef who creates exquisite 3/4 course meals which are fresh, delicious and beautiful to look at. The lounge and it’s honesty bar with complimentary tea/coffee is a wonderful refuge.
The location was perfect for our Monet trip to visit Giverny, Rouen, Honfleur, Trouville and Deauville. A quiet, secluded location but close to main access roads. Plenty of secure car parking. We will definitely return – the new swimming pool will be a great addition to an already brilliant boutique hotel.

The building and grounds are a story in itself and one that is described fully in a book situated in the hotel lounge. Suffice to say it is tastefully done and to a very high standard. This is still a work in progress as there is a new swimming pool coming soon.

Dinner was a culinary delight. There is a set menu, but don’t be fooled into thinking that it stops at 4 courses. We were served several dishes in addition, which were all superb. The food had delicate tastes, full of flavour and plentiful. As a dining experience, it was spectacular.

The buildings are beautifully renovated with great taste. The rooms are spacious, very clean, quiet, very comfortable beds, modern bathrooms and all the rest.

There is also a separate “restarea” in another building which is really cosy and ideal for having a quiet coffee or tea while reading or just simply relaxing.The hotel also has a very nice heated pool and sauna.
