Hôtel de la Plage Review

One of the few hotels on the beach in St-Marc-sur-Mer, southeast of La Baule, this comfortable lodging was the celebrated setting for Jacques Tati's classic comedy Mr. Hulot's Holiday. It has been updated since and, hélas, the swinging door to the dining room is no longer there. But the view of the sea and the sound of the surf remain. The restaurant—reserve a beachfront table in advance—serves the usual seasonal fish and seafood (oysters, shrimp, tuna, sea bass, and cod) as well as classic bistro fare like a beef fillet in a three-pepper sauce or roasted duck breast with poached pears. There's also a brasserie for more casual dining.
