Our philosophy

The Relais du Silence chain was created in 1968 on the initiative of a few perceptive hoteliers... Noise, as we all know, is a major social intrusion.
It produces stress and undermines our health and happiness. Also, what is cheap and modern all too often tends to be ugly, disappointing, and increasingly impersonal. It is these three thoughts that have moulded the distinctive features of the Relais du Silence - Silencehotels: * a natural and peaceful environment, offering rest and recreation in calm and tranquillity. * comfortable buildings of character and individuality to satisfy our need of charm, beauty and authenticity. * a warm welcome, stressing the quality of life and gastronomy, assured by the personal attention of the owners themselves who know how to make guests feel at home while still being entirely professional.

This is a chain which cares and is different, which gives due attention to the human scale, to quality and to a personal touch. It is neither standardized nor boring. The diversity of architectural styles, of settings, of service (from 2 to 4 stars) makes it a chain with a unique appeal... In Europe, we have made a special selection of manors, inns, country houses, chateaux, estates, mills, cottages, farmhouses, chalets - all as welcoming as they are charming and peaceful.

This is our response to this deep-seated need for nature and tranquillity that we all feel in an ever more frenetic world. We extend a cordial welcome to you as our guest. We hope you will enjoy your stay with us - from one relais to the next...
