Relais Guillaume de Normandy

Historic hotel in St-Valery-sur-Somme

Right on the waterfront in a mock Tudor mansion from the early 1900s, this vintage hotel has a five-storey tower and period touches such as a mosaic entryway and creaky wooden stairs. Half of the 14 rooms have bay views. The in-house restaurant (closed Tuesdays) serves traditional French cuisine. Breakfast costs €12.50. Reserve well ahead in summer and on weekends.
