Your 3-star Hotel at La Baule

Your host at Villa Caroline

Let yourself be transported by this magical setting, facing the ocean and discover the treasures of our region! Every day, our team offers you its good humor and attention to make you fully enjoy your stay.

A Tonic and Typical Stay at La Baule

On one side there is the elegant Benoît beach, on the other a delightful garden dotted with trees. The Villa Caroline has a chic and elegant atmosphere, ideal for contemplative types looking for distant horizons but also for those who prefer an active life such as they will find at sea, on the golf course or at the equestrian centre, all of which are close by, plenty to satisfy their love of playing sport. As for exploring the region, it’s a gold mine, as rich as it is varied, from the little fishing port to the smart seaside resort and the little granite villages dotted around the salt marshes.

You will like....

  • The exceptional setting of this villa of character.
  • The restaurant with a view of the bay.
  • Benoît Beach and the villas that rival each other in fantasy!

The Spirit of the Place

Created at the very beginning of the 20th century, in the very chic Benoit district, Villa Caroline was named by the Marquis de Montaigu, after his wife. Calm and tranquillity have replaced the splendour of the receptions he gave there at that time.

La Villa Caroline, a beautiful and cosy house, is a veritable balcony overlooking the ocean, situated in an environment of choice. Whether you stay on the spot and enjoy the garden and the magnificent sea view or you go exploring the surroundings... everything here exudes a unique and inimitable personality.

Jewels of the architecture of La Baule, Pornichet and Le Pouliguen: under the pines, on the seaside, the large villas with Moorish, Basque, Art Deco and Belle Epoque influences rival each other in fantasy and bear witness to a time when sea baths and the arrival of the railway gave birth to seaside tourism.

Labelled "Remarkable Taste Site", the 2,000 hectares of salt marshes are visited, between saltworks, villages of salt workers with traditional houses and salt shops in old warehouses.

A Hotel with “Art Included”

Vacances Bleues is very keen on combining art with your holidays, so the Villa Caroline displays twenty or so canvases, painting and bas-reliefs by artists. You will find the works here of Benjamin Chasselon, Adrian Doura, Christian Laudy and Joël Kermarec. There is a mixture of generations and techniques, another aspect of our company’s collection exhibited at the Villa Caroline.

Benjamin Chasselon’s “Little Bathers” have just come off the beach that runs in front of the hotel terrace or there is  Guy Ibanez ‘s “imaginary portrait” wearing a captain’s cap, Adrian Doura’s enigmatic landscapes in homage to Monet’s chromatic studies of cathedrals, variations on a theme of breath by Christian Laudy, or Joël Kermarec’s slate, a total of around twenty paintings, some figurative, others not, that are hung in the lounges and dining-hall of the restaurant in the Villa Caroline.

Rooms

Your 3-star Hotel facing the Atlantic Ocean
