The detail

Perfectly situated to take advantage of the glittering waters of the Atlantic and the charming and storied local covered market, a longstanding part of La Rochelle's history, Maison des Ambassadeurs is an architecturally stunning and world class hotel, with a long and fascinating history. As luxurious today as when the global explorer and ambassador Albert Bodard called it his home, Maison des Ambassadeurs offers the ultimate high-end hotel experience, with no detail overlooked and no compromises in creating an opulent and unique space for guests from all over the world.

The hotel itself occupies a historic spot beneath the arches on the rue de Minage, placing it within easy walking distance of the old port, the historic centre of the city, and the vibrant covered markets. Inside, a combination of original architectural features and judicious contemporary touches give guests the immediate impression of stepping into a worldly and magnificent palace characterised by charn, first-rate aesthetics, and absolute commitment to luxury.

This complete dedication to comfort and style continues to the rooms and suites, which range from the deluxe room for couples or individual travellers through to the six guest family suite.

Downstairs, enjoy a signature cocktail in the gilded and nuanced interior of the Bodard Bar, before slipping through into the Arco Restaurant for a truly world class culinary experience, where extraordinary technical skill and vision are combined with the highest quality ingredients for a meal you'll never forget. Every moment at Maison des Ambassadeurs is a real treat, with a team of expert staff on hand to cater to your every whim and desire, and only the finest of amenities and sundries for your delectation. From your first cup of coffee by the pool in the bright coastal sun to your final digestif in the stunning Bodard Bar, you can be confident that your time spent at this five star hotel will be a magical experience.

With its exquisite food, service, pool and spa, the hotel leaves you with no reason to leave, although guests who venture out into the charming surrounding area will be delighted by the cafes, bars, and pretty coastal cobbled lanes within gentle walking distance. Take in the Atlantic in all its glory, or sit down for a cappuccino and croissant in the early hours, watching the world go by.

With its half-timbered medieval houses, Renaissance architecture and 17th century arches, the city of La Rochelle is a beautiful and vibrant destination, drawing enthralled visitors from all over Europe and beyond. The seafood-heavy cuisine is a real treat, and with its pretty cafes, historic charm and distinct culture, there really is nowhere quite like it.
