Immerse yourself in the art of La Rochelle-style living
La Villa Grand Voile has made Christopher Coutanceau and Nicolas Brossard's ultimate dream come true: invite guests to enjoy an incomparably-rewarding experience and, as such, become a real marine-themed destination.
Le Relais & Châteaux Villa Grand Voile, located just a stone's throw from their restaurants on La Concurrence Beach, is an enchanting place nestling in a former shipowner's residence dating back to 1715.
This historic character building invites to discover a true haven of peace, set in one of La Rochelle’s quiet residential streets.
What could be more natural for the chef-fisherman than to invite the ocean into this one-of-a-kind setting – in its eleven bespoke-created rooms and suites conjuring up the sea - as well as in an iodized-focused breakfast imagined by the Michelin three-starred chef.
A mainsail hoisted high by the duo, now at the helm of a three-masted vessel which they steer together...
Villa Grand Voile
This historic character building, nestling in a calm alleyway, just a few minutes’ from the vibrant Vieux-Port district, the city centre’s shopping streets and historical treasures, invites you to delight in a relaxing wellness break at the very heart of this majestic maritime city, where you will enjoy strolling around the cobblestone streets, admiring half-timbered facades and houses adorned with white stone. La Villa Grand Voile also promises an unforgettable gastronomic stay: the Relais & Châteaux Michelin three-star Restaurant Christopher Coutanceau is just a short walk away, as is La Yole de Chris, the chef’s marine-themed bistro, also located on La Concurrence Beach.
A breath of fresh air, infused with a desire to look to tomorrow and the endless horizon, has blown over this authentic mansion which, today, elegantly boasts highly-contemporary, designer furnishings, genuine Art Deco works of art and the finest imaginable materials.
Through the talent of an architect from La Rochelle, the meticulous work of local craftsmen and the signature of renowned design brands, Villa Grand Voile blends tradition, renewal and comfort.
La Villa Grande Voile’s bespoke-created eleven rooms and suites evoke seascapes, draw from the chromatic spectrum of ocean and sky blues, stormy greys and ever-so one-of-a-kind dusk-time pinks.
... and exquisite delight
