The beauty of the Vendée, the footprints of Napoleon I and the atmosphere of a delicious town. Hospitality is a given at the heart of La Roche-sur-Yon. Welcome to Sébastien Trichet's hotel.
"I've always been drawn to traditional hospitality – contact with guests and quality service."
Service often makes all the difference, says Sébastien. In the perfect spot near Puy-du-Fou and Les Sables-d’Olonne and just 25 minutes from the Atlantic beaches, his hotel, The Originals City, Hotel Napoléon, La Roche-sur-Yon, is practical first and foremost. This three-star establishment is all about service and comfort. "The quality of the hospitality and our location at the heart of La Roche-sur-Yon are other major drawcards," adds Sébastien. Just 300 metres from the station, this elegant 29-room hotel is great for making the most of your holidays in the Vendée prefecture within the Loire region, a special place for Napoleon I. Guests find this hotel particularly warm and cosy.
We've created different atmospheres on each floor. The rooms are not all the same, Sébastian tells us. They "have personality and refined comfort," he continues. They can comfortably accommodate between one and four people. The style is contemporary while the decor is soothing with warm tones. Each room offers all the comfort you need for short or long stays with your partner, friends, family or colleagues.

In the perfect location in the Vendée, The Originals City, Hotel Napoléon, La Roche-sur-Yon is also at the heart of a charming town. An opportunity to explore a wonderful region.
LA ROCHE-SUR-YONLa Roche-sur-Yon is a charming 'new town' built in 1804 by Napoleon. With discoveries aplenty, it's an appealing place where history meets modernity. The seat of the Principality in the Middle Ages, the town was developed around its château and Vieille Horloge quarter. Dating back to 1566, the Maison Renaissance is a wonderful vestige of this era. Napoleon I redesigned the town in the 19th century, giving it a pentagonal shape and draughtboard structure, and integrating Neoclassical buildings. Place Napoléon is one such example.
LES SABLES-D'OLONNEThe hotel is just 25 minutes from the ocean and the iconic Les Sables-d’Olonne seaside resort on the Côte de Lumière. Built on the sand of a barrier beach, the town extends between the lively quays of its harbour and its immense, gently sloping fine sandy beach, which runs for more than three kilometres to the foot of the famous Remblai promenade.
PUY-DU-FOUJust 45 minutes from the hotel, the Puy-du-Fou park takes visitors on a journey through time with the help of special effects and pyrotechnics. Spectacular shows are organised in the prestigious setting of this incredible 50-hectare wooded area. A host of villages welcome you, immersing you in a wide variety of different themes. At nightfall, visitors hurry to the lakeside for a delightfully strange and fabulous concert. Towards the château, be sure to stop by the must-visit Cinéscénie, a sound and light extravaganza.
VENDÉE STUD FARMJust a ten-minute walk from the hotel, the Vendée Stud Farm is a world apart devoted entirely to horses. Set off in search of a wide variety of majestic horses in the 4.5 hectare grounds. This is one of the biggest stud farms in France where you can admire a host of thoroughbred stallions and French Trotters and discover the stud farm occupations and horse culture.
