Welcome to

L'Albatros, The Originals Relais (Relais du Silence)

Christine and Thierry welcome you to enjoy the warm hospitality on the Île d'Oléron

The sound of the waves and the salty air. The warm hospitality on the Île d'Oléron. The Atlantic flavours. Welcome to Christine and Thierry Cheval's hotel.

"This is a charming hotel. Our guests have chosen an unusual, special, relaxing place and a bright little house scented with sea air." 

With the ocean in the background, L'Albatros, The Originals Relais has a natural, cosy, peaceful ambiance. Their 3 Star hotel in Saint Trojan les Bains is a unique place "inspired by the water, the open sea and nature," Christine and Thierry tell us. The hotel is soothed by the sound of the waves in the perfect location in Saint-Trojan-les-Bains on the Île d'Oléron. Its 12 rooms and beautiful suite are an invitation to relaxation and wellness. Friendliness is a priority for Christine and Thierry who encourage guests to savour the delights of the seaside, namely the delicious fare in the warm hotel's restaurant.

L'Albatros, The Originals Relais

The 12 rooms and suite at this warm and elegant three-star hotel can accommodate one to four people.

Some have unobstructed views over the ocean while others look out over the garden.

Guests can also opt for a continental breakfast in their room. The hotel bar is a great place to unwind and the restaurant is a chance to enjoy the Île d'Oléron flavours to the full.

L'ALBATROS

In a warm and elegant lounge setting, Thierry Cheval and his team welcome you to a place with expansive ocean views. Chef Frédéric Boulay serves up traditional fare with a focus on seafood and authentic flavours. His cuisine has been recognised with a Michelin Plate. Thierry's recommendations include the fish crisps, the roast veal sweetbread, the truffle sauce and the lobster cakes with shellfish coulis.

EXPERIENCES

L'Albatros, The Originals Relais

Come and explore the exotic Île d'Oléron in Charente-Maritime and wander its maritime pine forests, charming villages, picturesque little ports and fine sand beaches.

THE CHASSIRON LIGHTHOUSE

The Chassiron lighthouse sits on the northern tip of the Île d'Oléron, at the 'tip of the end of the world'. Its strategic position allows sailors to pinpoint the entrance to the Antioche inlet, the scene of multiple shipwrecks. Standing 46 m high and 18 m wide, it boasts impressive views as a reward for the 224-step climb. The beautiful vista takes in Oléron, the Antioche rock, the Aix and Ré islands, La Rochelle and La Pallice.

ADMIRE FORT BOYARD

The legendary Fort Boyard was built between 1804 and 1859 to protect the mouth of the Charente. Once finished, it was considered outdated and vulnerable to modern artillery. It became a prison for Communard rebels before their transfer New Caledonia, eventually falling into obscurity. 'The useless fort' hosted the famous TV show from 1989 and acquired international renown. While tours of the fort are not permitted, cruises give visitors a chance to take a closer look.

THINGS TO DO

Fifteen minutes from the hotel in Saint-Pierre d’Oléron, explore the exceptional setting of the Oléron golf club where the seafront forms part of the nine-hole course. Take the chance to wander the 50 km of beaches or enjoy watersports such as surfing, sailing and kitesurfing.

THE LITTLE TRAIN OF SAINT-TROJAN-LES-BAINS

It's not a TGV, just the little train of Saint-Trojan-les-Bains which departs from a real station in the south of the Île d'Oléron. The compelling 12km return journey will take you to the wild farther reaches of the Maumusson inlet and deep inside the magnificent pine forests inaccessible by road. This little train serves the Gatseau and Maumusson beaches on the Wild Coast.
