Hostellerie de la Pointe Saint-Mathieu: facing the elements

charm

Far from the Ponant Cité, the timeless chic of the Hostellerie de la Pointe Saint-Mathieu, in stark contrast with the untamed nature that surrounds it, is sure to please.

Twenty kilometres west of Brest at Plougonvelin, the rocks of Pointe Saint-Mathieu seem to tumble into a windswept ocean. This exceptional setting, an ode to wild, rough, and indomitable Finistère, is where the Hostellerie de la Pointe Saint-Mathieu has set up residence.

Opposite the lighthouse and the abbey, the 23 rooms of this four-star ‘Relais du Silence' look out to the dramatic ocean. You feel like you are among the rolling waves in these rooms, designed like chic, cocoon-like ship's cabins with wood panelling and portholes, and decorated in shades of blue. Some rooms include balconies to better contemplate the horizon. With a minimalist, bright Spa Carita and a gourmet restaurant in a 14th-century stone building, the Hostellerie de la Pointe Saint-Mathieu is a destination in itself, though there are many places to visit nearby, beginning with Ouessant. It exudes a quiet charm, ideal for a great seaside escape.
