The Manoir de Kergrec’h, located on the northern coast of Brittany, is a superb 17th-century manor, impressively large, yet tremendously inviting—especially in early summer when a profusion of old-fashioned pink roses lace and soften the stern gray-stone exterior. This is truly a ... more

The Hôtel de la Plage is quite different in ambiance from what one generally expects of a Relais & Châteaux hotel. Instead of being a formal, super-sophisticated, grand hotel, it appears to be more like an old-fashioned, friendly, low-key resort—the kind of place that families... more
