The Hotel de L'Antiquite is a perfectly fine choice in Challans. The rooms are clean, good shower pressure, free gels and freeview TV (French). The room we were in was rather small, and the cut-down four-poster beds just served to hit your elbow on, so little place was there around them to get past. Parking is free on the road just outside the hotel, but you pay in the 'blue zone', marked with blue lines. We bought breakfast at a local boulangerie and took it to eat inside a bar, who served us hot chocolate and had no problem with us eating our croissants at the table. So, 5 euros for two, which isn't bad and much cheaper than the hotel option. If you go at the beginning of August, we were told, you might catch the Challans Autrefois festival, which looks really interesting. Some sour points: we were asked not to go back to the room in the early afternoon because of cleaning. OK, for 10-15 minutes, fine, but I don't want to be restricted for hours! Also they ask you kindly, but emphatically, to leave your key each time when you go out. But you have to leave it hanging up by the entrance door, not really guarded or hidden. I'm sure nothing ever happens, until the first time it happens. I prefer to have more peace of mind. So overall a fine but rather querky hotel.
