Welcome to Le Relais des Eléphants Colorés

We are Betty and Jan Coenraadts and at the end of September 2019 we took over this wonderful stay from a Dutch couple. They have realized this great company in ten years, by taking over this we now realize our long cherished dream.

We welcome you to the website of Le Relais des Eléphants Colorés.

Our theme at the moment will be that the rooms are recognizable with the name of a color. For the Chambres d’Hôtes you can choose from four rooms, each with its own bathroom. Breakfast is included in the room rate. In consultation it is also possible to sit down for a three-course dinner in the evening (Table d’Hôtes). If this is desired, please specify when booking.

We also have a fully furnished 4-person gite (cottage).

Due to owners (mostly) not abiding by our house rules, we have unfortunately had to decide not to allow pets from May 2023. Bookings made before this date will continue as usual, of course.


Due to physical problems of ours, the chambre d’hotes is open on a limited basis until the end of 2023. You can always send us an e-mail with your request for a stay. Thank you for your understanding.
