La Mare aux Oiseaux The Originals Collection (Relais du Silence)

In Saint-Joachim, Loire-Atlantique, Éric has built a world of his own. Éric shares it with the land and the sea. Éric's world is also based around sharing."Sleeping, waking up, living, feeling, moving, stopping to smell the roses, see the colours, hear the birds": La Mare aux Oiseaux, The Originals Collection is an invitation to discover the charms of a simple life surrounded by nature in the Brière Regional Nature Park. This unusual 4 star hotel near Saint Nazaire  is entirely dedicated to the gentle way of life. With its 10 rooms and 5 suites, including some on stilts in the lodge style, Éric's hotel allows his guests to commune with nature, to switch off and discover happiness regained. This includes the restaurant: Éric cooks. And he does it splendidly.

"For breakfast, there's salmon smoked in-house using peat from the marsh, and Nicolas and Cécile's cheeses," Éric confirms. Breakfast is served as a buffet to be enjoyed in the dining room from 8.30 to 10.30 am and until 11 am in your room."All of the products that we offer are fresh and prepared in-house or by local producers and craftsmen who have been chosen for the quality of their output," Éric adds. And the hotel restaurant has been awarded 1 star by the Michelin guide.

Interior of La Mare aux Oiseaux at The Originals hotels


Éric is an inventive, talented and unusual chef."My speciality is not having a speciality. I take inspiration from life so that my dishes reflect my environment. His restaurant combines several environments. Arranged as a triptych, it initially appears as a glass cube decorated in wild silk drapes, becoming a cosy boudoir before opening onto the garden. It has something for everyone. To enjoy or discover: black mullet, early leeks, white asparagus in daikon remoulade; saddle of lamb stuffed with nettles and scallops, new potato pie with spinach and quinoa sprouts, mint sauce from the marsh; Anjou poultry, einkorn wheat with marine vermicelli, grilled squid, and the famous rice juice.

Tips from your hotelier


The Brière regional nature reserve is one of France's oldest regional parks. Located just a few miles from the Atlantic Ocean, at the heart of the Guérande peninsula, it covers 49,000 ha. This is a wild and unspoiled environment that can be explored on foot, by bike, by canoe or carriage. The 7000 ha of marshland is home to remarkable flora and fauna. A split level birdwatching hide allows you to observe spoonbills, bluethroats, egrets and more.

Tips from your hotelier


La Baule offers almost 9km of sandy coastline. It is known as one of the world's most beautiful bays. This seaside resort has a reputation for an extraordinary profusion of leisure activities: catamaran, sailing, volleyball, kitesurfing, kite flying, golf, casino... Even more picturesque is Batz, lying between the salt marshes and the ocean, with its rocky coast dotted with sandy bays: the beaches of Valentin, la Govelle (funboard) and Saint-Michel, a small shingle beach. The tower of Saint-Guénolé church offers a beautiful view of the coastline, from Saint-Gildas point, to the south of the Loire valley, up to the Rhuys peninsula to the north, and, out to sea, Belle-Île and Noirmoutier.
