The hotel in detail

Pristine green lawns stretch down towards glorious lake views from virtually every window at L’Hotel du Lac. This stunning modern villa, set in a captivating landscape, is a peaceful sanctuary where generously sized rooms, locally sourced, modern French cuisine, a shochu bar, an outdoor pool, and a tennis court ensure guests enjoy every moment here.

There is a wonderful feeling of spaciousness at L’Hotel du Lac. From the bright and airy lobby to the rooms and suites, every room has stunning lake and mountain views. As well as an outdoor pool, a large indoor bath filled with mountain spring water looks out over the gardens.

If you visit in spring, be sure to visit Kaizu-Osaki with its wonderful display of cherry blossom. Then, take a lake trip to Chikubu Island with Hogonji Temple and Tsukubusuma Shrine or visit Nagahama to see the castle and Hokoen Lakeside Park. Return to L’Hotel du Lac for a well-deserved rest and a delicious dinner paired with excellent wine.
