From your stay on the island you will take away not only memories of the wind, the waves, the constant changing seascape, the warm sun, the white sands and strolls along the beaches…
From your stay with us at the Hotel du Fort et des Iles you will also enjoy the surrounding sea’s bounty, every product simple yet authentic. From fish and shellfish to crustaceans such as our highly-prized Chausey blue lobster.
At our restaurant “Table of the Isles” you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the sea and the archipelago surrounding you.
OUR CHAUSEY BLUE LOBSTER IS THE GUEST OF HONOUR
“ In the Chausey Isles, the sea offers us its culinary treasures, our Chausey blue lobster being the star of the archipelago. Chef can grill it on its own as a main course or as a starter accompanied by foie gras, or even in a salad. An absolute delight! ”
THE SEA AT YOUR TABLE
“ From beautiful dishes to shellfish platters created on the go by our sous-chef: oysters, crab, whelk, shrimp, crayfish and lobster. Or you can opt to try our scallops, garlic & herbed clams, Chausey-shrimp.
With your view of the surrounding isles you can enjoy all of this with a chilled glass of white wine—an unforgettable experience! ”
BOUNTY FROM THE BAY
