We received a warm welcome from the reception staff and the delightful owners made time to talk to us and every guest at breakfast and at dinner every day. Our room was on the ground floor of an attractive bungalow set in well maintained gardens. We had a large and attractively decorated bedroom with a very large bathroom with walk-in... More

We stayed three nights and loved it. The owners are charming and went to great lengths to ensure our comfort and happiness. The hotel has a quiet location but is a short bicycle ride from lovely beaches and other sights. The breakfast buffet is outstanding.

This is where the French go to be out in the country and relax in silence. It's heaven on earth. The Saragasso current warms the place, and the beaches with their "Cotton" fluffy waves are where Monet painted 37 of his masterpieces. You want to stay here. And savor the country quiet and the black skies at night.

Lovely and tranquil setting on the beautiful island of Belle-Ile-en-mer. La Desirade is perfect for folks who seek an outdoor vacation of hiking, biking, ocean swimming, and breton-crepe eating. The hotel is impeccably clean and nicely decorated in a maritime motif, specific to Island. The restaurant is great too--fish, island lamb, and locally sourced veggies. Wonderful service by a multilingual... More

Absolutely worth a visit! We were sad to leave after only one night. For anyone considering going to Belle-Ile-en-Mer I highly recommend staying with Pierre and his wife at this beautiful oasis of a place. The service is impeccable, the food is great, the rooms are nicely decorated and the spa and outdoor/pool area are inviting. Top value for money.... More

Visited the restaurant recently in a group of 40 IFFR members and was treated to probably one of the best meals I have ever had in all my years of travelling in France. The meal was superlative, especially the local lamb (a speciality of Belle Ile) which had a tenderness and flavour that would be the envy of any top... More

La Desirade is a lovely hotel, in a beautiful setting, but derives its soul/charm from the incredible warmth, friendliness, helpfulness and gracious attitude of the entire staff, starting with its personable owners Pierre and Benedicte. They have set the highest standard in courtesy and helpfulness and are meeting it every day, all while respecting your privacy. A complete delight! Spa... More

"La Désirade" is one of the best hotels I have being. Beautiful place, relaxing environment, fantastic service, fabulous breakfast and mainly a great team. We had a warm welcome and the team was always very helpful in every aspect of our stay. Those are real holidays, even if you went just for a week end. We will come back! Margarita
