DESIGN / WORLD-CLASS CREATIVES
Balancing a totally contemporary vision with a respect for the Abbey’s history, while anchoring the project firmly in the 21st century, was the challenge laid down by Fontevraud Royal Abbey to designers Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku, to which they rose magnificently! The concept adopted here and realised by local craftsmen and businesses who excel in their respective fields, is resolutely modern. Every detail has been conceived both for our guests’ maximum comfort and to complement the site to its best advantage. The result is anything but passé!
PLEASURE / FOR ALL THE SENSES
From the hotel’s lobby to its bedrooms, a sober, unostentatious luxury is in evidence. The whole hotel has been imagined and conceived to delight and stir emotions, in order to create an unforgettable experience for our guests, right down to the Fontevraud fragrance that can be detected here and there. Our stated ambition, once again: to stimulate all our visitors’ senses!
THE IBAR, BETWEEN THE PAST AND THE FUTURE / SOMETHING TO EXPERIENCE!
The iBar is an architectural tour de force, somewhere that mixes past, present and even future. It is one of a kind. Touchscreen tables and tablets that make up a real digital library, are integrated into the long oak monolith that constitutes the bar. The priory chapel has been both transformed and preserved. The iBar represents the design of the future: pure, modern and respectful of the past. More than a formula, this is something to experience!
