La Désirade, a soul, a spirit | Hôtel La Désirade ***
A short note from Pierre and Benedicte
Passionate about meeting people and discovering landscapes, lovers of Belle-Île-en-Mer, we chose to follow our dream and become hotel operators in 2005.
La Désirade is the result of a long thought that led us to leave our professions as HR manager and speech therapist.
Today, at La Désirade, we do what we really love everyday: sharing moments of life and creating relationships.
An unforgettable trip in the heart of Belle-Île
During a break, La Désirade invites you to relax, to enjoy the moment in an extraordinary place, a thousand miles from everyday life…
Take the time to discover Belle-Île, enjoy a fresh and local cuisine, stroll in the flowery and landscaped garden, relax at the spa, savour a real homemade breakfast after a long night, get together, laugh and share… simply enjoy life.
La Désirade is a journey in the heart of Belle-Île-en-Mer focused on what really matters : nature, human relationships, the pleasure of emotions… to live an unforgettable experience.
At La Désirade, we share our family spirit
La Désirade is a loyal, local and “caring” team: you will always appreciate the same concern to do well, a spontaneous, smiling and warm atmosphere, with a personalized and authentic welcome, advice and a thousand attentions!
The entire team shares and embodies the values that are dear to us and that are the spirit of Désirade: generosity, simplicity, friendliness, kindness, authenticity.
Close to nature and committed to sustainable development
It is no coincidence that we have decided to include “La Désirade” on the path to sustainable tourism.
With the desire to strive for development meeting the needs of the present generations, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, our commitment is a subtle mixture of convictions, great choices… economic and administrative constraints. We thus contribute through our daily actions, sometimes modest but having value as an example and/or pedagogy, to the efforts of the local community for sustainable development.
