Grand Hotel des Bains, a boutique hotel with luxury spa on the coast of Brittany, was built at the beginning of the 20th-century. It is located in the tranquil and picturesque fishing town of Locquirec, bordering on the Finistère and Cote d'Armor regions of Brittany.
A world away from crowds, noise and pollution, this traditional boutique spa hotel stands on a small peninsula with stunning sea views. Its gorgeous grounds and private beach are so beautiful that they were used as the setting of the famous French comedy: "L'Hotel de la Plage".
Excellence of service and delicious food combine with the inspiring location, salt water swimming pool (heated all year) and spa to provide an utterly peaceful atmosphere.
The spacious terrace is a perfect place for watching the boats glide along Locquirec bay. At high tide, the sea laps the lime tree alley in the garden, while at low tide the rocks appear and it is possible to cross the bay by foot.
The spa (and 18 metre indoor salt water pool) at Grand Hotel des Bains is open daily, with a range of treatments including manicures, pedicures and facialS. A full range of massages and thalassotherapy treatments are also available, which focus on the toning and detoxifying properties of algae and mud products.
There are a number of sailing and diving schools nearby, including in the town of Locquirec itself. It is also possible to go Sea kayaking and bicycle hire is available in Locquirec. Boat rides to nearby islands can be arranged, and horse riding, golf and fishing are all available nearby.
Grand Hotel des Bains uses the freshest of produce from the owner's nearby farm. As well as a tempting range of delicious patissierie, each day they also offer a "menu minceur" so that you can indulge your taste buds but not your waistline!
The hotel's brasserie, in the village, serves some of the best food we have tasted in years. Sit aside the sea as you tuck into fantastic soups and wonderful salads. Just make sure to leave room for pudding and cheese; the selection is to die for! We would recommend enjoying your meal with the cider — we fell in love at first sip.
In the evening, guests can relax and enjoy a drink in the bar, where a crackling open log fire welcomes you in.
