Hotel's history

The hotel was created in 1965 by Madame and Monsieur MOREAU, who had the incredible courage, and lived the crazy adventure of creating an upscale hotel on one of the most beautiful beaches of the Ile d'Oleron. They will run it for more than 30 years (in family), leading it to the top of the hotel in the French style (hotel Relais et Châteaux, 2 Michelin stars restaurant).
 
Arrived in 2009, a family from the south of France, fell in love with this hotel which was forgotten and abandoned. Its unique location facing the ocean, set on the beach in a wild and natural space, its architecture 'Le Corbusier' conquered them, they decided to rebuilt the hotel and make it live again.
 
A year of tough work, and in 2011,  a new 4-star establishment with traditional restaurant opened its doors... A few years will be necessary to find its feet, know its customers and their needs, as well as training a new team.
 
Today, you will meet Valerie, at the reception who runs the hotel and manage the team as a mom, always listening to customers. There is also Nina, the granny who comes a week per month, it's a little the grandmother of the house and the staff, the friend of the regular customers. There is also Sophie, the girl of the house, who will welcome you to the restaurant at night, and will listen to you to spend a moment of sweetness and relaxation. Patrick, the dad, that you will meet during the day around the reception, or at the maintenance, and, that you can also sometimes meet at the restaurant to advise you on the choice of wines. Finally, there is Yoan, the son of the house, who is the Chef , and who will cook you, with his team, fresh and homemade dishes...
