Wow, what can I say... don't hesitate and book this fantastic place before it's full. it's in a prime location (although although in busy August we had no noise issues at all), the building is old and full of character but nicely updated without losing its style , the rooms are immensely tastefully decorated and very large, the shower is great, breakfast is amazing, there is a hottub and a wonderful little garden... I don't know what else to say. everything was perfect. we didn't eat on-site but after looking at the menu we regret it, so book a meal too! one of the nicest places I've stayed so far.

We stayed for 1 night on 30/3/22 and had a fabulous time.
From the moment you enter the characterful and lovingly restored building, you are made to feel very welcome.
Rafael and Diane are fantastic hosts, down to earth, relaxed and warm.
The bedroom was stylish, airy, bright and spotlessly clean.
The dining room is beautiful and really cosy, they had a fire lighting when we went in.
Rafael prepared a delicious, fresh, well presented meal for us, washed down with an excellent Pinot Gris which was suggested by Diane.
We've stayed at many places in France and the rest of Europe and this is right up there and deservedly so.
So book here if you're planning on coming to the island.
The only negative, we only stayed one night.
Robert & Sarah.

We stayed here for a week and it was beautiful . The house is serene and calming. We both found we relaxed within minutes of arriving. There is just something very special about this place. I would like to keep it a secret really ! However we would not hesitate to recommend it. The bikes included with the room are a bonus and we explored all parts of Noirmoutier, many beaches, 'markets' and restaurants. The local restaurants were very nice but by far the best chef on the island was Raphael, his food was outstanding and he was very flexible with the menu. If you stay at the Corner you must eat in, you will not be disappointed. Diane and Raphael the owners are just the nicest people. We cant wait to return ! Helen and Rick

My wife and I had landed at Nantes airport but our luggage had not so we were very stressed on arrival! However, we were collected from there by Raphael who whisked us to Noirmoutier and the Corner in no time, and we really enjoyed a chat and a laugh en route. We cannot recommend the Corner highly enough in terms of the quality and standards of the accommodation, the food, and our hosts Raphael and Diane. The accommodation and dining which they provide is second to none and the use of the complementary bikes meant getting around the island was so easy. Raphael is an accomplished chef and his food was superb, not only for dinner, but also for the amazing breakfasts we had. Diane was also a fantastic host - coming to sit and chat outside with a couple of glasses of wine. It definitely is more like staying in someone's beautiful home than an impersonal hotel. We would love to come back soon to see everyone, including Sidney the dog! Thanks Raphael and Diane for a fantastic stay - we will be back (hopefully with our luggage next time!)

This beautifully restored property is in the heart of town, literally walk out the front door and drink, dine, shop, go to market, or use one of their complimentary bikes and get away for the day and explore the fascinating island! Flowers abound, birds, butterflies, scenic ocean views, hiking through swaying pine trees while enjoying the ocean breeze... then come back to refresh in your fantastic rain-head shower, enjoy a crisp glass of wine, relax on the sunny, flower-filled patio to catch up on a book, and rest up until it's time for one of Raphael's delicious dinners, if you choose to partake... we're glad we did :) seafood lover's delight (even catered to my request for escargot), tons of fresh veggies, homemade delicious breads... and Diane and Raph were such fun, knowledgeable hosts, speaking French, but also English, which certainly helped us feel more comfortable since our French is very limited... the bountiful table was surrounded at times by visitors from so many different countries, so interesting to see who you would meet the next evening. We loved our room as well, nothing like having your window open wide to the glorious night breeze, the sound of church bells ringing out, and the hubbub of a small village going on around you... our bed was one of the comfiest I've had... tons of closets/hooks, etc. for all my "stuff". Our little 4-day stay was so thoroughly enjoyable, I felt so right at home here, this is my kind of place, fitting right in with "the locals", and the home itself was so pretty and accessible, with flower window boxes hanging, shutters open, and even people just wandering by wanted to stop and peek in to see one of the newest places in town to lay your head and enjoy this enchanting island... we would hope we can get back some day... thanks so much for your wonderful hospitality!!!!

Strategic location, cozy and clean room. A lot of care in detail, in the room as well as in the common spaces.
Great breakfast and dinner, all homemade, with a perfect mise-en-place. Memorable shrimps!
Raphael and Diane welcomed me with warmth and kindness, telling me the story of the house and the renovation and giving me all the directions to enjoy the island to the fullest.
Free bicycle.
Glad to have discovered it!

Recently spent three days at the Corner - could not have been more pleased with the facility, amenities and hospitality from owners Rafael and Diane. Room was clean and spacious, there were free bikes to use and the good food from personal chef Rafael. Rafael prepares a great breakfast with fresh baked goodies and homemade yogurt - other meals are available too. We had two outstanding dinners - the food was not only superb, the dinning room is spacious, warm and inviting - very comfortable. Add to this the level of hospitality that Rafael and Diane extend - this was the highlight of our trip. In addition The Corner's location is perfect - only a few short steps from the center of town with it's shops, cafe's, restaurants and the market place - location could not be better. We'll be back.

My girlfriend and I spent months planning our trip to France. We wanted to obviously see all the major landmarks, and sights, and cities, but we also wanted get a sense of some the real day to day life of the people of France and soak up some of the real culture. Paris is amazing in it's own right, but for the people that live outside of Paris life is very different, a little more calm, a little more serene, a little more of a simple life. Noirmoutier is the best way to really experience this side of the French lifestyle. We decided to begin our 2 weeks in France at The Corner on Noirmoutier with our hosts Raph and Diane, and could not be happier with our decision!! We did our first 4 days of the trip on Noirmoutier and it really gave us a chance to decompress, have a real vacation feeling, and get into the best mind state before jumping into the chaos of the rest of our trip.

Me and my girlfriend joke that just in the first few days of our trip, we had already done 400 cool tings! I'll elaborate further on some, but here is a quick reference list of things to do on Noirmoutier: You can ride bicycles everywhere, you can walk everywhere, we went on a boat tour around the island, we found high end dining, we found casual dining, we visited sea salt farms, we saw castles, we saw sheep, we went clamming, we went hiking, we went swimming, great beaches, great jogging paths, very friendly people.

The Corner itself is in a prime location, right outside the front door we had a convenience store, a park, a gelato shop, several cute shopping boutiques, and several great dining options. It was the perfect balance of being on a small quite island, but not being "secluded" and still having all your necessities readily accessible.
The corner is a converted bed and breakfast, built in what used to be the actual post office for the entire island, and well as the residence of it's former mayor. and as soon as you walk in the door your will notice glimpses of that rich history incorporated everywhere. A grand limestone spiral staircase (felt like a castle), a grand piano, open windows everywhere, and a small center courtyard where we enjoyed our morning espresso everyday. Our room was clean with lots of natural light. Our room felt like a country farm house, but with all the sleek updates that you get from a high-end hotel. From our window you could look down and see the passersby, or you could look into the distance at the hilltop a mile away with an actual castle perched atop it.

Raph and Diane were our hosts, and they were beyond spectacular, incredibly warm and welcoming, and informative. Raph cooked us some of the most amazing French cuisine I have ever experienced in my life. They gave us maps, bicycles, food, French history, and a million other things that just enhanced our trip even further.

Beyond everything already mentioned
