We have stayed at Chateau Richeux frequently over the years. It is an outstanding property with very high standards of comfort and service. On our last visit, the menu in the restaurant had changed and left my husband with no choice of a starter as he does not eat seafood or foie gras. We were most pleasantly surprised on placing...

This hotel has panoramic views over semi tropical gardens, to the bay to Mont St. Michel. Our room on the first floor was elegant and spacious with a three dimensional bay window over the sea. The staff welcoming and helpful and dinner excellent. This was born out by the restaurant being busy on a Thursday night, The breakfast was extensive... More

We've visited a number of times and keep coming back for the entire experience. This is high end travel in France at its best. Excellent food and wine, well appointed rooms, and staff who are friendly and eager to make sure you have a great stay. The location and grounds are beautiful.

I booked my one night stay at Chateau Richeux with some trepidation as not all the reviews were great. The hotel itself is! The service was friendly, the building itself was charming and the grounds lovely. Our room overlooked the sea and had a huge bay window with fabulous views. Yes you can see Mt St Michel in the distance... More

Starting with the romantic room overlooking La Manche/Bay of Cancale, even or especially with the low tide pulling one from and through the old windows framed in sparkly cobalt blue mosaic tiles, you are quickly transported to another more elegant time and place through the tremendous effort, expense, and careful aesthetic choices of the owners. From what one has read... More

We stayed here for 2 nights during our trip around Normandy and Brittany. This charming and historical house sits on top of the cliff and the view from the garden, guest rooms and restaurant was stunning. Our room (cardamom) was not large but came with nicely designed bathroom and a large balcony with the stunning view of the sea. We... More

This 1930's era "chateau" has gorgeous grounds, lovely rooms, a super restaurant, and wonderful views over the bay, with Mont St. Michel at a long distance. There's a two-night minimum, alas. The hotel provides thoughtful extras like fruit in the room, flowers, and a turndown service. The restaurant is elegant, with inventive as well as classic dishes, top quality at... More

A wonderful hotel, tucked into the cliff and overlooking the Bay. We had the best room and were able to see Mont St Michel from the room though it is about forty minutes drive from the Mont. It was well worth it. Everything in the hotel was perfect and the dining experience three star. Visit St Malo which is only... More

We were lucky enough to have a room decorated discretely with gold and turquoise mosaics and that looked out over the bay and extensive gardens that reach down to a sandy beach for walking and musing. The hotel has a little out building that serves as a bakery for the excellent three-star restaurant. All the public rooms are bright and... More

This small chateau is reminiscent of a country house in an Agatha Christie novel - with a bit of Enid Blyton thrown in! Its decor transports you back to the thirties: parquet flooring, wood panelling and a grand staircase dominate the public areas. Natural light floods through the many windows that overlook the bay. The staff are formally attired. Yet... More
