Nature, sea and tranquillity. A warm, genuine welcome. The charm of Mont Saint-Michel Bay. The Gaulois family welcome you to their hotel in Normandy.
“Everything is in place here so that you can recharge your batteries and relax.”
“It’s all about the welcome, attentiveness, and generosity”. So say the Gaulois family, whose experience in the hotel trade goes back generations. The Gaulois maintain a tradition of hospitality at the Hotel Manoir de la Roche Torin, The Originals Relais, which contributes to the warm feel of their 3-star charming hotel. Located in Courtils, Normandy, near Mont-Saint-Michel this elegant 19th-century manor house boasts views over the legendary Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel. The site's authenticity and its natural surroundings are an invitation to relaxation and peace. And the 15 comfortable, cosy rooms help too. The delights of Normandy can be enjoyed in the hotel’s restaurant.
- LE MONT-SAINT-MICHEL
- THE CHANNEL ISLANDS
- DISCOVERING COTENTIN
The hotel has 15 rooms of 10 to 21 m2, ideally suited to couples, friends, families, or work colleagues. These comfortable, cosy rooms face either Mont-Saint-Michel or the superb grounds, and are the perfect place to relax and unwind. They feature a subtle blend of classic and contemporary styles, in both gentle and cheerful tones, and some have a terrace too. Each one is fully equipped with all the essential comforts for a perfect stay.
- Non smoking room
The manor house has a fine breakfast room, where the Gaulois family invites you to enjoy a generous buffet every morning. Like the restaurant, it has a superb view over the grounds. And in fine weather, it’s a true pleasure to sit out on the terrace and soak up the first rays of the sun. When evening comes, you can relax with a drink in the hotel bar. At lunch and dinner, you’ll enjoy delicious, traditional Normandy cuisine in the restaurant.
MANOIR DE LA ROCHE TORIN
Opposite the Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel, set between Normandy and Brittany, the Hotel Manoir de la Roche Torin, The Originals Relais invites you to discover the charms of this superb region.
With a circumference of 960 m, height of 92 m, and surface area of some 7 ha, Mont-Saint-Michel’s dimensions do not measure up to its fame. Together with its abbey, this little granite island, an icon of the French coastline, lies only 10 km from the hotel. The manor house directly faces this legendary bay, which has the highest tides in continental Europe. Don’t miss out on the tour of the famous Benedictine abbey, a major pilgrimage destination from the 8th to the 18th centuries. Marvel at the sealife and ecology museum too, and the delightful Tiphaine’s house, where Knight Bertrand du Guesclin’s armour and Tiphaine de Raguenel’s astrology study can still be seen.
THE CHANNEL ISLANDSA change of scenery is guaranteed on the Channel Islands. The largest, Jersey, is known as the island of flowers. It features a remarkable variety of landscapes: beaches, coastal paths, and charming villages. On Guernsey, Jersey’s little sister, the natural and cultural heritage is breathtaking. Paths, cottages, beaches, English country gardens, ramparts and much more are all waiting to be discovered. Hauteville House, where Victor Hugo lived in exile, is not to be missed. Alderney is wilder, a little paradise where, as on Sark or the smallest island of Herm, cars are banned.
DISCOVERING COTENTINCotentin is a world apart, and full of surprises. The sea on both sides, marshland and open countryside in the centre, while to the north at La Hague, at the tip of the peninsula, the cliffs are dizzying and the beaches seem unreal. A superb path along the coast as far as Cherbourg offers panoramic views. At the heart of this area, the regional nature park of the Cotentin and Bessin marshes is crisscrossed by canals. It’s an area rich in bird life. The historical heritage of this rural landscape is remarkable, with Coutances and its magnificent cathedral, Valognes, the “Versailles of Normandy”, Sainte-Mère-Église, and more besides.
In its idyllic setting opposite the Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel, the hotel offers an attractive, fully equipped meeting room.
