I've been fortunate enough to travel to some great locations in the last 15 years. Without question, the Chateau Richeux is one of the most memorable places I've ever stayed at. The location is stunningly beautiful and impeccably maintained. The dinner is one of the best meals I've ever experienced. If ever in Cancale, you must get some mussels. My... More

This was our second visit to this hotel. The first was back in the mid-nineties, when it had just opened under current ownership, and we remember it as less "relais et chateaux-ish" and more pleasantly idiosyncratic in those days. Still, we had a lovely stay. The location, on a windswept promontory overlooking Mont St Michel Bay, is spectacular, and the... More

I have to start by saying this is not a review of the restaurant. The restaurant is a fantastic, 5 star dining experience. I will do a separate review of it under the restaurant name (Le Coquillage). Unfortunately we were underwhelmed by the Chateau Richeux as a hotel. It started with our check in where the person at the desk... More

After a long trip from Belgium to France, arriving in Chateau Richeux was heaven. Our room had a beautiful sea view and we also found a warm welcome letter from Olivier Roellinger next to a finest cognac from the region, delicious cookies and lovely organic apples from the garden. Every night the staff left a note in our room to... More

We stayed at this fabulous hotel for two nights. Our large room had wonderful sea views over the bay and was very well equipped and beautifully decorated with mosaic tiles. We ate in the restaurant on both evenings and had excellent meals. On the first evening we had the seafood platter which was enormous, delicious and fresh. The second evening... More

Stay at this lovely hotel, have a fantastic lunch while overlooking the bay and you will think you are in heaven! The hotel is charming, with modern bathrooms, comfortable rooms and beds and very helpful and welcoming staff. Of course, you must eat in the restaurant...an experience to savour and enjoy. It is located not far from Mont St.Michel and... More

Dinner here was a fabulous experience. We had the tasting menu, and at 139 Euros it was actually good value, bearing in mind the outstanding ingredients, the surroundings and the obvious expertise that had been bestowed every dish on the menu. The wonderful variety of fish and seafood dishes all bore the hallmarks of Olivier Roellinger's subtle and expert use... More

This IS a relais chateaux in every single way! The 5c are all there. This was an amazing and unforgettable experience. We would repeat it only to come back to this hotel. The restaurant Coquillage is a gastronomic experience. This is one of those places where romanticism floats in the air, but at the same time mystery and passion. If... More

This was our second visit to Chateaux Richeux. We had visited in the fall before and this time in the spring. Definitely visit in the spring. The grounds are wonderfully tended and the flowers are profuse in the spring. Our room overlooked the bay and Cancale in the distance, was spacious, very nicely furnished with a great bed and bathroom.... More

After visiting Mont St. Michel and St, Malo, we stopped by this hotel for a night. From the moment we drove into the garden, I knew it was something special, in spite of the rain. The building was lovely, the garden well-arranged and we parked beside the smokehouse, where the local fish was prepared for the dining room. The marvelous... More
