A Return to His Roots

A Love for his Region

Mathieu Guibert is a child of the Pays de Retz. He grew up close to the restaurant Anne de Bretagne, before leaving to gain experience elsewhere. As a young man, he looked longingly at this great white residence with such a renowned reputation. When its founders, Philippe and Michèle Vételé, announced to him that they were planning to pass it on, the idea came to him immediately: his knowledge of the region and local producers was unparalleled and his career so far had given him the experience necessary for such an adventure... It was up to him to take over the reins of the house! Today, he directs the hotel masterfully, all the while making sure to maintain its authenticity.
