Hotel de Diane, Sables d'Or les Pins
France > Brittany > SABLES D'OR LES PINS
Established in the 1920s by an estate agent from St Malo, Les Sables d'Or is a small family summer resort on Brittany's Emerald Coast close to Cap Fréhel, a spectacular headland sat high on a limestone cliff overlooking the sea on one side and countryside on the other. Nestling amongst sand dunes and delightfully scented pine forest, the resort has a huge sandy beach which is considered to be one of the finest in the region and this together with its golf course and casino is popular with visiting Parisians. There is a wide range of leisure facilities on offer in season that includes watersports and sailing, children's beach club, riding, tennis and bicycle hire along with a varied choice of restaurants, cafés and bars, plus numerous cycle and walking paths, some marked, others not. And where better to stay than the charming Hotel de Diane. Well located in the centre just 100m from the beach it was one of the first 6 hotels built here back in 1925. The newly restaurant features fish specialities, there is a pleasant bar and a lovely lounge for relaxing, and there is also a sauna and jacuzzi. Bedrooms are comfortable (doubles only, no twins) and superior rooms, which are larger, are also available.
