Castel Clara Review

Perched on a cliff overlooking the surf and the narrow Anse de Goulphar Bay, this '70s-era hotel was François Mitterrand's address when he vacationed on Belle-Ile and it still retains its presidential glamor, with its renowned spa, saltwater pool, and spectacular views. In the bright, airy restaurant, chef Christophe Hardouin specializes in seafood, caught just offshore. The herb-crusted turbot and the line-caught sea bass are simple but delicious. Castel Clara's expansive wooden-deck terrace is the perfect lounging spot for cocktails at sundown.
