    Rooms 36 / Architecture Atelier Solo / Interior Design Atelier Solo / The Original Sylvette Lebeau

    Sylvette and Pascal Lebeau have long been admirers and collectors of contemporary art. Now, they have found the perfect exhibition space for their modern collection. The hallways, lounges and 36 rooms and suites act as a transient gallery, offering changing exhibitions in conjunction with the nearby Galerie Albane. Original paintings, photographs, and sculptures from renowned international artists offer visitors a place to absorb culture. While surrounded by France's largest yacht marina, guests can amble through the Old Town, feast on the freshest seafood, or sail and surf in the Atlantic Ocean. The historic building has been given a makeover with decor that is audacious and lively. Relax by the roaring fire in the bar and tearoom, or indulge at the ultramodern spa. Within easy reach of La Rochelle's convention centers, and boasting a state-of-the-art meeting room, La Monnaie Art & Spa Hotel is an inspiring destination that is simultaneously soothing and stimulating.

    A new type of exhibition

    Housed in a building that dates back to 1656, La Monnaie Art & Spa Hotel’s interior combines history with contemporary furniture, decor and modern art. The pieces on display include paintings, photographs and sculptures from the owners Sylvette and Pascal Lebeau’s collection. Exhibitions change regularly, but one can expect to find works by artists such as Hélène Jousse, Nicolas Benedetti and Liz Bono. Architect and interior designer Philippe Lucazeau has managed to maintain the atmosphere of the ancient 17th century house, while lightening the tone with a spirited and daring aesthetic.

    Interior Design

    Bright, fresh accents

    Iconic furniture and a color palette of smooth whites and soft grays are kept fresh with bright accent features. Throughout the public spaces the whitewashed historic stonewalls are contrasted by lively swatches of sky blue and grassy green. These are set alongside more classic elements, such as black leather chairs, glass chandeliers and bold black and white striped wallpaper.

    Made by Originals

    Sylvette Lebeau

    After 23 years devoted to education, Sylvette Lebeau gave up her career as a schoolteacher and, together with her lawyer husband, indulged in her dream: to acquire a classic ornate building, rich in story and legend, and renovate it with the trappings of modernity. La Monnaie Art & Spa Hotel, nestled in the heart of the Atlantic seafront, offers La Rochelle its first authentic four-star. With a passionate appreciation for art and design, Lebeau's aspiration was to create a hotel for all visitors of the majestic antiquity of La Rochelle, combining the atmosphere of an ancient 17th-century house with striking modern artwork. An added attraction is the down-to-earth and infectious enthusiasm of Lebeau herself.
