NUMBER OF ROOMS: 9 rooms
CLOSED ANNUALLY: Closed from December 17th, 2018 through January 17th, 2019
THE STORY: Rescued from the waves by two forty-something entrepreneurs who were seduced by the location and the history of the place (Boris Vian, Edith Piaf and Marcel Serdan all stayed there while visiting Jacques Prévert), the Landemer Hotel sends out good vibrations starting from Mile Zero of the “chemin des douaniers,” an 80 km-long coastal trail that runs along the La Hague peninsula. The result? Nine rooms only, all with panoramic ocean views, an attentive staff (you can order a drink at the bar and it will be brought to your room) and – as an added incentive – the waltz of the waves breaking below. Rooms starting at €92 (low season) and €184 (peak season).
TOILETRIES: ECO by Green Culture shampoo, shower gel and soap.
INTERNET: Wifi (free).
BREAKFAST: Continental breakfast at €15.50 with hot drinks, breads, brioche, freshly squeezed fruit juice, yogurts, cheeses, fresh fruit salad, eggs, crepes.
MINI-BAR: No, but there is a courtesy platter provided so that you can prepare tea or coffee in the bedrooms.
LITTLE LUXURY: The private terrace for the rooms in the farmhouse. At high tide, the sea is fewer than 30 feet away…
