Hotel de La Bretesche

Built for you by Les Ducs de Bretagne


Hotel de la Bretesche

Chateau de la Bretesche

The hotel at La Bretesche is an oasis of calm and gastronomy built into the old servants quarters and stable blocks around the central courtyard.  (The Chateau itself has been sold off as private apartments many years ago).

The bedrooms are all different in size and decoration: some classical, some neo-classical and some quite avantgarde!

There are two restaurants to choose from during your stay: either Michelin starred gourmet cuisine looking out across the lake to the Chateau or the more informal, but excellent, brasserie style service in the stylish Clubhouse.

For aperitifs or digestifs there is no better setting than the surroundings of the bar in the beautifully restored old stable block.


La Bretesche Hotel - Spa

For serious relaxation you will find an outdoor pool and a small indoor pool plus a variety of traditional and somewhat futuristic treatments available at the Cour Carré mini-spa attached to the hotel.

La Bretesche - The Golf Course

La Bretesche Golf Club

La Bretesche  Architect: B. Baker.  18 holes: 6080m: par 72.
A majestic course amidst the forests and rhododendrons of the fairy-tale Château of La Bretesche. Tight fairways and spectacular views as you play your way around the ancient home of "Les Ducs de Bretagne".

Other courses to play in the area

La Baule Golf Club - RougeLa Baule - Rouge  Architects: P. Alliss & D. Thomas.  18 holes: 6055m: par 72.

The Rouge course starts in front of the Clubhouse and the first five holes play through mature woodland. The middle nine holes are more American in style around the Hotel with more water, and some impressive bunkering in play. The closing holes are more play around the original lake and back to the welcoming Clubhouse.

La Baule Golf Club - BleuLa Baule - Bleu  18 holes: 6301m: par 72.  Architects: P. Alliss & M.Gayon.

A short walk to the first Tee beside the extensive practice facilities to start. Then the Bleu course leads you through the forest and out into the open where nine new holes are arguably the most eye-catching best stretch at La Baule with some fearsome water hazards and intricate bunkering. A very good test of golf indeed!

La Baule - Vert
9 holes: 6301m: par 72
Architect: M.Gayon
An full sized 9 hole course that is no "walk in the park". All your shots will be tested on this varied selection of holes on the opposite shore of the lake to the "Bleu" course.

La Baule Golf Club - Vert

Architect: M. Gayon.
18 holes: 6112m: par 72.
The new Clubhouse at Pornic is now fully established as is this great little course.
A links like feel to the rolling fairways in many places, yet with aquatic obstacles to negotiate too. A very friendly Club.

Pornic's rolling fairways
Pines a plenty at St. Jean de Monts!

St.Jean de Monts
Architect: Y. Bureau.
18 holes: 5962m: par 72.
A mixture of tough, tight holes through the pines and round the lake (including possibly the toughest opening hole in golf???). Followed by a pure links back-nine section bordering the seashore. Admittedly a bit of a drive from La Baule but in our opinion, well worthy of the excursion to get there.

Architect: M. Gayon.
18 holes: 6339m: par 73.
A fairly straightforward parkland layout, albeit with a natural water hazard or two, that is closer to La Baule than either Pornic or St. Jean de Monts.
