Located on a natural and wild beach, the hotel is built in the middle of the dunes on one of the most beautiful beaches of Ile d’Oleron. Natural sandy beach with about 10 km length, in the middle of nature, between forest, dunes, sandy beach and ocean … Nature is still wild in this magical place …

You will appreciate the view from the lounge area / bar and some rooms … 

You will hear the sea from the garden which is just behind the dunes and will lead you straight to the beach access. 

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 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 and Yoan, the children of the house, who will welcome you and will listen to you to spend a moment of sweetness and relaxation.
