Fontevraud L’Hotel

The Fine Bedding Company has supplied Smartfil® Boutique Silk duvets and pillows to the award winning Fontevraud L’Hotel, France, which opened this year following its conversion from a 12th century priory into a luxury four star property complete with 54 rooms, family suites and gourmet restaurant.

According to Pascal Bailly, Director of Hospitality at Fontevraud L’Hotel our Smartfil® Boutique Silk duvets and pillows “are part of the success story of the hotel.”

“A recent survey showed that whilst in a hotel room, guests spend 80% of their time in bed. Therefore the quality of the bedding is critical and that is why we chose to partner with The Fine Bedding Company.”

“The pillows offer firm yet soft support for the neck whilst the duvets drape beautifully to encourage the deepest sleep. As a hotelier, I am also finding that the Smartfil® technology is helping us maintain a high hygiene level within an acceptable budget”, said Pascal.

The hotel, which is located in Saint-Lazare in the Loire Valley, was recently recognised in the European Hotel Design Awards in the ‘Adaptive Re-use’ category. In its time this wonderful historic building has been a hospital, nursing home and a rest home for nuns during seven centuries of monastic life. The adjacent Abbey contains the tomb of Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen of France who then became Queen of England. Consequently, the hotel is fast becoming a top destination for guests eager to soak up its rich heritage.
