“A treasure!”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

This hotel is the kind of place you dream of finding but almost never do. The setting is lovely: overlooking the sea and quiet, but also right in the heart of Douarnenez. Our room was a good size with a balcony and a view of the bay. The hotel is an old building with modern extensions but the feel, particularly of the public spaces, is very traditional. Outside there's a small swimming pool, a terrace with fabtastic views, sunloungers and tables for eating outdoors. We stayed out of season for 5 days on half board and the food was exceptional. The 22 euro dinner menu changed every day, with an appetiser followed by a choice from 2 starters and 2 main courses, cheese or pudding. Everything we ate was memorable and perfectly cooked without being over fussy, just delicious. The wine list was more than a match for the food. Breakfast was ample and served til a leisurely 10.30 and the Far Breton was a treat.

A stunning location with views over the bay, this hotel has been refurbished, well half of it at least! Great new hot tub steam room and sauna, breakfast nice, but didn't eat in the hotel because they only had a fixed menu, no good if you just want a plate of soup. The outdoor heated pool area was lovely too. However watch out for the killer mozzies, I had 50 bites, not a good look, no aircon and open windows make for big bugs and bites.......

The hotel was not too difficult to find, it is right behind a large church, front entrance is a little tricky, we have a Ford KA and the front entrance needs a sharp turn, although there is a wider rear entrance. The rooms were large and well decorated albeit a little conservatively, but ours had a really good view over the garden and swimming pool to the bay, with a table and chairs on a balcony outside. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and would do all they could to help, with varying amounts of English. the breakfast was magnificent, a full continental breakfast, not just a simple French one. We ate in the restaurant two nights (out of four) there were a range of menus, we had the 32 euro meal which was excellent and consisted of four beautifully presented courses including a cheese board which was the largest I have seen. Wine prices ranged upward from 22 euros, we had the 22euro red and it was excellent again.

Room Tip: The rooms at the rear of the hotel overlooking the garden. pool and bay are at the rear of the hotel...

This hotel is quiet, secluded and a great location close to the town with good parking which can be difficult at busy times especially the sailing festival in July 2012.After getting stuck with the road closures someone came from the Hotel to direct us through the barriers in place

There are modern rooms, slightly dated, in an annexe of recent build compared to the older hotel building itself. In High Season the room for 2 persons with a balcony overlooking the sea is Euros 120 and the restaurant itself in the hotel does lovely food primarily seafood related at Euros 29.50 with a supplement of Euros 15 for lobster which was really excellent and enjoyable.
A great place to visit in the centre of Douarnenez convenient to shops, restaurants, the harbour and beaches.

We stayed for three nights at Le Clos de Vallombreuse. Our room was very spacious and had a very nice bathroom and a balcony. The weather was a bit cold and damp for us to make use of the balcony, but the view over the swimming pool and sea was lovely.
We ate in the restaurant two different nights and the food was delicious both times. The breakfast in the dining room, was very nice with a good variety from which to choose. We used this as headquarters to drive to various places in the vicinity, so the fact that there was a large car park in front of the hotel was valuable.

My room was in the old house and was spacious, comfortable and with a view over the swimming pool to the sea. The restaurant was excellent with both cheese and dessert included. Breakfast was limited but adequate.

We stayed here in July 2011 the first hotel on our cycling adventure . It has a beautiful position with lovely views out to see. The food is just fantastic..... cheese board to die for.
The rooms are spacious looking out to the swimming pool with your own little veranda, if only the hotel could have provided the weather, it rained every day of our holiday and finally the sun came out on our last day as we returned to douarnenez .
