Hotels in Brittany + Normandy

An 18th-century former residence set in expansive gardens.

An inland maison d'hôtes of good intentions and some allure.

Bed down for the night in the cheerful hotel and let the sounds of the sea lull you to sleep.

Near the fortified port town of Concarneau, the Les Sables Blancs presides over an unspoiled strip of sand. The hotel opened less than a year ago, and has a mod, minimalist look, with bright orange chairs on a vast lantern-lit bar terrace where guests gather at night.

It's the only hotel worth anything, though hotel is a big word for what is really just an eight-room guesthouse. Open the windows to hear the sounds of the Siberian birds that nest nearby each spring.
