The history of our hotel, ideally located in the heart of Rochefort-sur-Mer, began in 1677. In those days, horse-drawn carriages entered the stable in the inner courtyard via today's entrance porch. Lis-ted as a Bâtiments de France building, the former stable is an integral part of the Arsenal. Its historic character gives it a unique cachet, even if it doesn't allow the installation of an elevator and the floor isn't always straight!
The old building has a soul... Victor Hugo himself enjoyed stopping here twice, but history doesn't say in which room!
Completely renovated, our hotel embodies the chic, authentic spirit of the town, and welcomes you "as if you were at home", in an atmosphere somewhere between a warm guest house and a family-run hotel.
Located in the center of Rochefort, close to the spa, shops and restaurants, and within easy reach of Fouras-les-Bains, La Rochelle and Châtelaillon-Plage, the Hotel de France is the perfect setting for your stopover, spa break, evening stopover or seminar in the Charente-Maritime region.
Your hosts Valérie and Gilles Lemoine will be delighted to welcome you: 25 spacious, comfortable rooms, a bar, a reading room, an air-conditioned seminar room and a secure room for your bicycles. Come whenever you like... Our entire team looks forward to welcoming you!
