Beauty, calm and creativity. A gentle way of life in Loire-Atlantique, at the heart of the Brière marshland. Welcome to Éric Guérin's hotel.

"What I like about my job, is meeting and sharing with people. And above all, giving a soul to the location, so the house breathes with life, so that employees and guests are fulfilled. "

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": the Hotel The Originals La Mare aux Oiseaux is an invitation to discover the charms of a simple life surrounded by nature. 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.

Hotel The Originals La Mare aux Oiseaux (ex Relais du Silence)

"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.

LA MARE AUX OISEAUX

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.

EXPERIENCES

Hotel The Originals La Mare aux Oiseaux (ex Relais du Silence)

In an idyllic setting, at the heart of the Brière marshes, this 4 star hotel lets you enjoy the charms of Loire-Atlantique to the full.

WELL-BEING AREA

By following the path between the 5 suites, you will arrive at a luminous glass canopy housing a 7 person relaxation pool. It's an opening unto lush natural surroundings, a sunny terrace, and two small chalets that house a sauna and a treatment room. All stages in relaxation that make this a haven of peace and a true invitation to contentment.

LA BRIÈRE REGIONAL NATURE RESERVE

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.

COASTAL WALK

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.
