A warm welcome. The nearby access and the beach. A very large spa. Welcome to Christophe Gatteau’s hotel.
“The hospitality, service and guidance given to each of our guests during their stay.”
Though he had worked with hoteliers for many years, Christophe Gatteau still hadn’t taken the plunge. In spring 2019, he finally dived in. He is the co-owner and manager of The Originals City, Relax’Otel, Le Barcarès, a three-star hotel with 41 rooms in north-east Perpignan. “I have worked closely with the luxury hotel industry for many years but I wanted to start out in a more traditional structure.” In recent years, though renowned in the south-western town of Le Barcarès, the hotel had been somewhat abandoned. So Christophe began a major phase of renovations to transform the lovely two-floor ochre building into a charming urban hotel. Covering more than 500 m2, the SPA has been completely revamped. Director of France’s SPA label for more than ten years, Christophe is something of an expert in the field. Another of the Relax’Otel’s strengths is its team: warm, friendly and attentive for a relaxing stay in every sense of the word.
The decor is understated and harmonised in all 41 rooms at The Originals City, Relax’Otel, Le Barcarès. Totally quiet (despite the nearby main road) with reversible air conditioning, all come with all the necessary equipment to ensure a really pleasant stay. Some also come with a lovely little sunny terrace with views over the palm trees. Holiday spirit fills the air.
A classic buffet breakfast is served from 7.30 am every morning during the week (from 8 am at weekends). Start your day with a generous breakfast in the peace and quiet next to the outdoor swimming pool or in the large bright dining room. A buffet will also be served in the evening, inviting you to try out traditional fare. Enjoy a warm and relaxed ambiance at the poolside in the Relax’Bar.
During a business trip or holiday getaway on the Pyrénées-Orientales roads, the Relax’Otel Restaurant & Spa in Barcarès welcomes you for a restful and relaxing break.
It’s difficult to stop at The Originals City, Relax’Otel, Le Barcarès without taking advantage of the 500 m2 of wellness space! There you’ll find a hydrotherapy pool heated to 29 ° with whirlpool baths, seats and swan neck jets, a sauna, steam room, water massage beds and more. Enjoy some pampering alone or with another guest and book a body or face treatment by one of our expert therapists with marine products.
Beach lovers will be in heaven with the hotel barely 200 metres from the huge sandy expanse bordering Barcarès. A tour of the village is also unmissable, taking in the markets, harbour, arts alley, fishing village and many events. Discover: the Salses-le-Château pond and fortress, Port Leucate and its shellfish centre, Perpignan on the border with Spain, and the Catalan-French country as a whole with everything it has to offer (traditions, food and wines).
The Relax’Otel Restaurant & Spa provides a small briefing room and meeting room (accommodates up to 40 people depending on the chosen setup) for presentation meetings, seminars and study days.
