"For its solitude, its silence, its wildness, its fisher folk, its transparent grey-green sea, its sky, now blue, now black ... for the dreams, the ideals, and the beauty that I find there."  Sarah Bernhardt


A philosophy of well-being

Built in the 1960s and 70s, the long, white buildings with their slate roofs overhang the wild coastline of Belle Île and small port of Goulphar, a long-term inspiration for Claude Monet when staying on Belle-Île.  The rooms’ soft, harmonious colour tones fit perfectly with the location’s exceptional peace and quiet.

Castel Clara is first and foremost a “Maison” – a house where guests are welcomed with hospitality, and in which human capital is the greatest wealth of all.  The team that makes up the property is passionately committed to providing exceptional customer service to guests who are seeking a unique experience of health and wellbeing.

Where the ocean permeates everything

An island where people take the time to live their lives: it offers the chance to get away from it all at the end of the world, combined with a temperate, maritime climate.  It’s an ideal location to relax as a couple, family, or group at any time of year – as well as being a great venue to organise a seminar.

Will you be coming to make the most of the spa?  For thalassotherapy?  To enjoy the idyllic setting, allowing you to immerse yourself in the untamed nature?  Will it be to savour the sophisticated, inventive cuisine?  Or will you simply take advantage of the magical, fresh and salty atmosphere that delighted legends such as the painter, Claude Monet, the writer, Gustave Flaubert, and actresses Sarah Bernhardt and Arletty?
