Vintage glamour and a warm Breton welcome at this chic clifftop retreat

Sitting in splendid isolation atop the rugged Nessay Peninsula, Le Nessay is the stuff of fairy tales – quite literally. A striking redbrick château with turrets that point to the sky, this boutique hotel stylishly evokes memories of a golden age, when the only soundtrack was the breaking of waves on the shore. Add to the mix the best croissants in town, and it makes the perfect refuge from the modern world.

But that doesn’t mean Le Nessay’s comforts aren’t contemporary. The nine rooms and two suites balance clean pastel colours with handpicked furniture – and all boast sea views, while the ultra-private Poterne rooms are tucked away within the gardens overlooking Petite Salinette and Bechet beaches. Wake up and fall asleep to the sound of the waves in the two beachfront Annexe rooms, or check-in to La Maison du Nessay, a standalone cottage available for private hire, which is the epitome of laidback Breton living. With its six gorgeous rooms, private swimming pool and garden, it’s ideal for fun family holidays or time with friends. Back at the main house, the restaurant serves up everything from gourmet breakfasts to a mouth-watering Sunday brunch (fresh oysters included). And the luxury spa is there for indulgent moments, whether you fancy a sauna or a full body massage.

From Le Nessay, it’s easy to fall in love with the area’s unspoilt beaches. You’ll find two within a stone’s throw of the hotel, and countless more lining the Emerald Coast. For days out, head to nearby St. Lunaire or St. Malo, bustling Dinard or medieval Dinan. Or work up an appetite with a walk along the area’s undulating coastal paths, breathing in the bracing sea air.

Le Nessay

Tee off before afternoon thé

An exclusive partnership gives guests at Le Nessay access to Dinard’s beautiful 18-hole golf course – the second oldest in France. Set above Saint-Briac’s rugged coastline, with 360-degree views of the sea, it’s the ideal place to spend a morning or afternoon. As a protected nature reserve, it’s also home to the area’s rare flora and fauna, giving it a particularly natural feel. Enjoy a round or two, then make your way to the historic colonial-style club house for drinks. 
 
Le Nessay

Bon appetit!

Just a short distance from the beach and the centre of Saint-Briac-sur-Mer, Le Nessay’s very own pâtisserie is a treasure trove of delights – from buttery pastries and sweet cookies to tarts and mouth-watering millefeuille. Pop in for an espresso before the sun is high. Or stroll past after a day of sandcastle building for a spot of afternoon tea. The pared-back décor shows off the goodies beautifully – and you can even order your favourite gâteaux to take back to your room. 
 
Independent Minds

Independent Minds: Martin Bazin

A mansion built at the end of the 19th century on the site of an old castle, a house with a thousand stories and emotions. It might have taken a whole year of work to transform Le Nessay into a 17 key hotel, just steps from the water’s edge – but General Director, Martin Bazin, was keen to capture a feeling of refreshment rather than complete renovation. Welcoming guests into the barefoot embrace of a Brittany holiday home, the heart and soul of this historic house can be found in the friendly faces who greet you and the quiet moments which wash over you – watching the changing tides from your balcony, breathing in the bracing sea air, and soaking up the sunset over the rows of rustic beach huts.

Food And Drinks

Headed by dynamic chef, Thomas Estrader, the Restaurant du Nessay works closely with local suppliers to create elegant menus that change with each season. By championing nature this way, Chef Estrader lets each fresh ingredient take centre stage, whether it’s zucchinis from Côtes d’Armor or fresh seafood and fish from Rennes. Start each evening with a signature cocktail on the terrace, before moving into the dining space, where you can watch the chefs whip up culinary masterpieces in the open kitchen. 

Le Nessay Restaurant

Served Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner Offering bistronomic menu for lunch and gastronomic for the diner. Set on the Nessay peninsula- surrounded by the Peninsula sea view and nature - enjoy a menu of local and seasonal products that ravish the senses.

Spa

Get lost in the moment at Le Nessay’s Phytomer Spa, named for the local Breton skincare brand which draws its ingredients (and inspiration) from the salts and minerals of the sea. Enjoy private sauna and hammam sessions in softly-lit spaces, as well as tailormade treatments such as personalised facials and ‘secrets of the tides’ massage.
