NUMBER OF ROOMS: 32 rooms 
ANNUAL CLOSURE: Open year round  

THE STORY: Established in 1952 on the Brittany moors of the Finistère department, La Butte is in a constant state of evolution towards better things. Founded by Jeanne-Yvonne Bécam, the original inn was transformed little by little into a beautiful, camouflaged hotel by Solène Conraux (his granddaughter) and her chef husband Nicolas. Surrounded by wilderness, everything is carefully designed and constructed to blend in to the elements, from the permaculture garden to the waste management system. Upstairs, there are thirty bedrooms showing off sober and elegant tones (slate grey, cream, pale green) and rough furniture (driftwood, waxed concrete), where you can laze around, with windows that open out onto the Bay of Goulven and a gentle breeze bringing the scent of sea foam and heather to the foot of your bed… The cherry of top of La Butte? The hotel’s restaurant under the stars, about as natural as it comes. Double rooms starting at €150 a night. 

TOILETRIES: Products provided by a local soap factory, made with local plants with medicinal virtues. 
BREAKFAST: An all-you-can-eat locavore buffet (€22), composed of coffee or tea, vegetable juices, homemade breads, grain bowls, buckwheat galettes… and even oysters early in the morning! 
LITTLE LUXURY: Letting time slip away in the 500 m2 wellness space, featuring a sauna, a covered pool with views of the bay, Norwegian showers, and face and body treatment cabins.
