We were travelling back to Caen from southern France and decided to treat ourselves to a stopover to break up the journey. The Hotel is REALLY gorgeous - a beautiful old building set in fantastic grounds, with gardens, and the most amazing metal sculptures as you head up the drive. Our room was a mezzanine set up with a double and a single upstairs and a double on the first level. It was really roomy for my husband and I and the two kids, with lovely comfortable beds. The view over the garden and out towards the see from the balcony was idyllic and having access to a little kitchette would have been extremely useful had we been staying longer. The pool was also very welcome after a long days drive. I would definitely visit the hotel again but this time would plan ahead more - unfortunately the restaurants menu, although mouthwatering, was no good for our rather picky children, so we ended up driving into Pornic and taking pot luck with the restaurants on the harbour there. We found something reasonable and had a pleasant evening, but a little more planning would probably have given a better result! My only other criticism was the lack of air conditioning. The rooms became extremely hot at night, particularly in the first level bedroom where the only option was to open the French doors, which we didn't do as it didn't feel very secure. Portable air conditioning units would therefore be a very welcome addition to this wonderful hotel. The breakfast was very nice but again a little too posh for our kids who really just wanted some basic cereal and maybe some toast and jam!

Great stay here with the family. Close to the beach and with a lovely pool, gardens and restaurant. The room was comfortable and stylish and the balcony had a super sea view. The kids loved the animals and the games in the garden.

A familly in holidays ordered some apple juice and had some detergent served to their 20 months daughter. How can that be possible? Well if you like betting with your life, this is the perfect place for you!

This hotel was exceptional The location was beautiful and the staff was exceptional Great dinner and breakfast. We had the sea view and it was breathtaking. It reminds me of what the earthly paradise will look like in Isaiah 65:21-25. I would give this a 10 star if I could. Great find

I am surprised at the high ratings for this place. We found that the accommodation itself was poor. The rooms were very small – there was barely enough room to walk around the bed, and a hopeless TV mounting made this much worse than it needed to be. Overall the rooms needed a refresh – the suite was quite basic and looking worn, and nowhere near what I would expects for approx. € 200/night. There was a constant whiff of ‘plumbing’ (specifically urine) though the staff did give the toilet an extra clean when we mentioned this. There was lots of noise from surrounding suites (and we were in a annex building of only 4 suites). Of particular note was the loud noise from the upstairs toilet being flushed. Nice… Little in the way of ventilation in either the toilet or bathroom unless you wanted to sleep with windows open - not great on ground floor, or with the mosquitoes. Our ground floor suite was not very private either. Other, less important small oddities were that there are no complimentary towels provided – these are extra cost (though you are told this beforehand). While there is a kitchenette, there is no dishwasher powder or tablets, nor filters for the coffee maker. Strange. You can opt to clean the place when you leave, or pay €65. Wifi was quite patchy – constantly having to sign back in after the signal drops out. The setting is lovely. Some rooms appear to have a nice view over to the ocean. The accommodation is set in and amongst a small farmstead, and it is only a few minutes walk down to the beach. Staff were very friendly The restaurant is set in a lovely room. The food was quite nice (and mostly produced on the farm), and the service very good, though very expensive overall. The children’s menu was most odd – for instance, breast of guinea fowl or foie gras were the only choices. One note – this is not a very easy place to get to if you are not driving. We came here by train from Nantes, and it is a €10-15 taxi fare, though when we arrived on a Sunday it was quite difficult to get a taxi at all. The lovely coastal walk into Pornic is a solid hour. I am afraid I would not recommend this place. The setting is not enough to balance out the expensive and very substandard accommodation, and overpriced food.

This is a wonderful hotel in a fantastic setting with friendly staff that go out of their way to help in every way. Marvellous restaurant for breakfast and evening meals. Rooms are lovely with a 'rustic' feel and the gardens and surroundings out of this world. Pornic is about an hour's walk away on the coastal path and well worth the effort. Altogether an ideal location.

My husband and I spent two nights at La Fontaine. This is a beautiful property, set amid gardens with a view of the sea from the grounds. We booked one of the apartments, which was spacious and comfortable for the most part. We enjoyed seeing the animals, vineyards, and flowers each time we left our room. Unfortunately, our room, Verveine, did not have WiFi access. Apparently the system was not working properly, but this did not make up for the fact that the hotel features include Internet access (necessary for my work). We asked about this numerous times, and on the first day we were told that it should work but were offered no solutions. On the second day, the receptionist apologized and said that if the hotel weren't fully booked she could offer us another room. Couldn't we have been given a different room on the first day when there was more availability? This would have been an acceptable solution. Granted, I was offered use of a meeting room where I could check email, etc., but this did not provide the comfort and privacy of my room. Our other issue, although relatively minor, was still problematic. An unusual heatwave made the room uncomfortable and stuffy (opening the windows at night let numerous flying insects into the room so wasn't an option). I requested a fan on our second morning and was told that housekeeping would check into this. Upon returning to the room several hours later, we found no fan, so I inquired again at the front desk only to be told that there were no more fans available; other guests had requested all of them within the last few hours. Why wasn't I given a fan when I made my initial request? This is not an inexpensive hotel. Surely management can purchase enough fans that every room can have one on the occasional hot day/days. An even better option would be to install ceiling fans in each unit. For those seeking a lovely setting, this hotel is a good option. However, if one anticipates requiring anything other than basic service, this is probably not the place to stay.

The hotel is surrounded by lovely gardens on one side and paddocks of farm animals on the other. We had a good room with its own small garden and tiny kitchen. There is no bar which is a drawback. The dining room was very pleasant but the food seemed to be dated and not special in any way.
