The coach staging-post

Les Hôtes du Paradis welcome you in their magnificent house.

At the heart of the Charente-Maritime region, 25 km away from La Rochelle and 23 km away from Rochefort, discover the charm and tranquillity of the Hôtes du Paradis.

The foundations of this former coach staging-post, steeped in history, date from the late eighteenth century. The owners have managed to bring the ocean air into the walls of the old building without changing its character. Today, 5 unique and beautifully sophisticated rooms await you. In each of them, authenticity and modernity are brought together harmoniously.

The heated swimming pool is at the heart of a relaxing garden of lush greenery.

Just a short distance from the remarkable tourist sites of Charente-Maritime, and far from the noises of the city, come and enjoy the comfort of an unforgettable stay at the Hôtes du Paradis.


Flower beds, wooded lawn, herbaceous hedges, it feels good to linger in the garden where the scent of hollyhocks abounds. The heated pool is at the heart of the garden. A myriad of reflections teases your eyes and invites you to a delicious swim. The only reason why you might want to hurry? Just to settle more quickly onto a sun lounger to enjoy the peace and quiet.


Exotic wood furniture weathered by time, matching linen, decorative objects that have been found here and there, the dining room with its warm notes creates an atmosphere of fellowship.
Meeting there at any time of the day, or on its adjacent terrace, next to the pool and enjoying the freshness of the garden, is the perfect way to relax.


A lounge is at your disposal.


Tempted by a fitness or sauna session? What about both? The fitness/well-being room is at your disposal at an extra charge.

Curiosity did not kill our 3 friendly cats who might be curious enough to pay you a visit. Please do not hesitate to chase them away.
