For coastal cool just a few kilometres south of La Rochellle, La Grande Terrasse Hôtel & Spa La Rochelle - MGallery by Sofitel is a totally revamped hotel that wows with a dazzling Atlantic Ocean backdrop. Best of all, you’ll be just five minutes from the heart of Châtelaillon-Plage - the charming seaside resort along the Charente-Maritime coast that's best known for its three-kilometre stretch of golden sands and renovated Belle Époque-style buildings.

Opened by Sofitel in June 2017, everything here is geared up for a relaxing stay. You'll find sleek and modern guest rooms and suites designed for day-to-night lounging, a superb signature restaurant for palate-pleasing French gourmet eats, and a lovely terrace bar for light snacks, coffees, and speciality cocktails.

Days in nearby La Rochelle can be spent admiring the Atlantic coast’s only surviving medieval lighthouse, riding around the streets on bright yellow bikes, and getting up-close(ish) with marine animals at the Aquarium La Rochelle. Post-sightseeing, head back to this charming place to hit the aquatic circuit in the indoor pool - or enjoy top-to-toe pampering in the fabulous NUXE spa.
