Fodor's Expert Review La Désirade

Petit Cosquet, Belle-Ile-en-Mer, Brittany, 56360, France Fodor's Choice

Close to both a small village and the untamed coastline, this peaceful family-run resort—complete with a wonderful restaurant and spa—has more than earned its consistently high accolades for comfort, charm, and top-notch service. Attractively decorated in tones of the earth and sea, the bright, ample rooms come with contemporary furnishings, modern bathrooms, and many with terraces looking over the beautiful hotel garden. Though within easy walking distance to the beach, you'll find everything you could possibly want or need on the premises: a delightful spa (with Jacuzzi, steam room, and fitness room), a well-tended swimming pool, and a top-notch restaurant specializing in sea food and classic Breton fare. The hotel's five independent cottages are perfect for families and make for an exceptionally comfortable longer stay.
