At the heart of a historic town: a hotel and its history!
Fontarabie House has a long, wonderful history that extends over 500 years. It was built in 1520 in the middle of a field near a crossing on the River Vendée. In those days, Spanish merchants from the Basque town of Fuenterrabia would travel to the great trade fairs in Fontenay le Comte with their miniature horses and bales of wool to exchange them for Vendée mules.
And thus, the Hotel Fontarabie was born! With its exposed stone walls, the establishment has preserved the charm of its past while also continuing to move with the times. For generations, the welcoming, dynamic staff of the hotel have helped develop and maintain a loyal customer base.
The hotel reception will be open: 7am-11pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday
and 7am-7pm on Friday and Sunday
