An unusual hotel with luxury services
L’Hôtel l’EssenCiel

A seamless addition to the estate's offering
A unique experience nestled within a multi-activity estate

Enjoy a unique new experience during your stay at the Château des Pères estate at our avant-garde hotel with its minimalist design inspired by nature. L’Hôtel l’EssenCiel features bold, tree-shaped architecture. Your stay in the large cocoon rooms will give you space for contemplation and deconnection.

Our hotel offers four-star services and your stay here will be enhanced by the surroundings: immerse yourself in the 31-hectare, tree-filled park, explore the permanent exhibition of monumental artwork, try your hand at sculpting or pottery in one of our art workshops, relax at the hotel's spa and savour the delights of eating at one of our three restaurants.

Opening scheduled for Spring 2022. Reservations available starting in early 2022.

Unique, innovative concept Original architecture

Estate owner Jean-Paul Legendre conceptualised the structure which was then designed by Agence d'Architecture Unité. This patented concept is the first of its kind in France. It features a retro-futurist design inspired by a tree with each branch holding a suspended bubble. This is the perfect space to rest and recharge in a cosy, cocoon-like environment.

Stay close to Rennes A perfect location

Our hotel in Piré-Chancé is just 25 minutes from Rennes and 30 minutes from the Saint-Jacques-de-la-Lande train station and airport. You will be only one hour from Nantes and two hours from Paris or London. Savour a unique experience surrounded by nature. This avant-garde location invites you to rest, escape and develop your creativity. Our four-star hotel is a perfect adventure for couples, an unusual weekend getaway for friends or a great location for business travel.
