More than just a 5-star hotel, more than just a project, Île de la Lagune is the result of an aesthetic ideal and personal ambition. The dream? To create a unique site in the Pyrenees-Orientales region that combines good taste with understated elegance, a well-kept secret that offers an experience rather than just a stay, a waking dream instead of holiday.
It was with this goal in mind that Alicia and Xavier Lormand designed their hotel. In partnership with designer Kristian Gavoille and a close-knit team with the same shared ambitions, the couple created an unusual haven in the heart of this green island, a place that seems suspended in time, whose beauty is never ostentatious—on the contrary, it seems entirely natural. The cosy, cocooning atmosphere at Île de la Lagune offers a wealth of small, welcoming, friendly spaces where you can gather with friends for a drink or just enjoy the view and atmosphere of the Pyrenees-Orientales.
We’re always looking for destinations in France where we can satisfy our thirst for all things curious and unusual, whether it’s natural or architectural sites to visit or atypical accommodations. The Pyrenees-Orientales area is full of mysterious and unusual places, which are often very old. We chose the Île de la Lagune hotel to contrast with our visiting itinerary: it’s a very contemporary hotel with a modern design. Its location on a peninsula, surrounded by a lagoon, the private beach and its cosy garden give it a great personality: it’s a hotel that’s really got loads of charm!
