Le Germinal The Originals Relais

Le Germinal The Originals Relais (Relais du Silence)

The entrance from the street is discreet. A simple passage between two walls from where you can barely make out the 3 floors of the former Cesson-Sevigné mill on the Vilaine river. However, it is a renowned place. Particularly for its food, which has 2 forks in the Michelin Guide. A source of pride for Aude, the current owner, whose great grandfather Louis Goualin bought the mill in 1927. “It was my father, also called Louis, who turned the mill into a hotel-restaurant in the 70s.” Having decided to follow in his footsteps, Aude studied hospitality “with a sommelier qualification” says the young woman who gladly shares recommendations with guests. The Hotel The Originals Le Germinal restaurant is renowned and so is the hotel due to the comfort and services provided in its 17 rooms including 4 suites with a stylish charm. A rural, romantic and preserved setting in the heart of Brittany.
