France’s Emerald Coast flaunts its latest gem, Hotel Castelbrac. In truth, the one-time villa has sparkled here for nearly 150 years. Once a marine research station, today it makes a perfect base for visitors exploring Normandy’s D-Day beaches and Mont Saint-Michel. The hotel overlooks St. Malo & the Channel Islands, situated on the site of Lord Hamilton’s famous villa and of the old Museum of Natural History.
Each of the 25 rooms has its own character and a lovely view of the sea. Healing and relaxation are found in the small spa suite, unique lap pool and solarium.
Take time to pedal around Dinard on one of the hotel’s complimentary bicycles.
Le Pourquoi Pas gourmet restaurant serves locally sourced seafood and fish with gorgeous views, while the old aquarium museum has been cleverly converted into a cocktail bar.
Hotel Tip: During warmer months, the hotel offers tours along the Côte d’Emeraude aboard its rare 40-foot wooden speedboat, built entirely by hand in Brittany.
