, 91 Boulevard De Belmont, La Turballe, Pays La Loire.
This former gentleman's summer villa occupies a privileged place on the edge of Belmont Bay, looking straight out to the islands of Houat and Hoëdic. Villa Belmont has granite steps going directly from the garden to La Turballe beach which is open to the sunshine and the sea, but well sheltered from the prevailing wind so it's ideal for sunbathing, even out-of-season.
The present custodians of Villa Belmont, Jean Claude and Annie Briand, entrusted the renovation of their chambres d'hotes (bed and breakfast) to renowned architect Charles Berthier who has married old and new elements in harmony. All guests enjoy the benefit of the garden and the elevated terrace overlooking the sea. Meanwhile indoors there is a television corner, a reading corner, a music corner, an indoor garden and a grand lounge with a spectacular sea view.
Three of the four double rooms have private balconies, two facing the sea and one facing the wooded garden of the villa. The fourth smaller room also has a view looking along the beach towards the harbour at La Turballe. Each the rooms has a double bed, free wi-fi and an en-suite bathroom with an Italian shower. There is also a studio apartment with a kitchenette, suitable for two adults and two children.
Villa Belmont is ideally placed for touring this part of the Brittany/Loire coast with Vannes and the Gulf of Morbihan to the north, La Baule and Saint Nazaire to the south and the Briere Natural Park directly inland.
