Because our guests are our best ambassadors

…let yourself be inspired by their testimonies.

  • "The apartment is over a bakery and there are bistros, grocery stores and general shopping all along the street. The train station is walking distance which was great for us as we did not have a car."
  • "Excellent stay in a beautiful setting: warm welcome from Laëtitia, air conditioning, coffee, fresh water and ice cubes available, beautiful decoration of the apartment."
  • "I loved everything! The place was fantastic. Location was perfect. The host was very sweet and recommended all the good places. I 100% recommend this place to everyone!"
  • "Everything is excellent: apartment, location, home! I'll come back!"
  • "Location, cachet and quality of housing."
  • "The ideal place to stay in Rennes! Everything was perfect ! The apartment is located in the center of Rennes, in a lovely pedestrian street (but overlooks a very large courtyard for more peace and calm at night). It is renovated with a lot of charm and elegance. Everything works very well, a lot of equipment and services, with small very nice gestures: Nespresso coffee and Marriage tea are waiting for you. Guides are available in the apartment as well as many information on Rennes and Brittany. The hostess welcomed us with a lot of kindness. In short, a delicious stay."
  • "An ideal stay, in a real small cocoon: the kindness and the welcome of our host, the decoration and the cleanliness of the apartment, the very complete equipment and the small "more" nice things, the extreme calm, in spite of the very centrale situation, in short, one of the best apartments I've had in years that I stay in apartment hotels."
  • "Total satisfaction for this appartment in all its aspects: conviviality, excellent location in Rennes, comfort and equipment."


I am 36 years old, I've been living in Rennes for 20 years, and I am a textile designer.

Le Canapé Bleu opened in March 2013.

Since, in a more humane way, closer to people, I welcome you and I willingly share my good addresses of the city: creperies, restaurants, cafes or other bars that are my favorite places in the city, and also in the cities of Brittany around.

I like spending time with my hosts so that everyone has a unique and personalized welcome, I am always very available and listening to their whishes.


What is the value?

  1. Le Canapé Bleu does not take any fees, while online booking platforms take up to 30% commission per booking.
  2. Since there are no booking fees and therefore intermediaries to pay, the hotelier commits to give his best rate: it shares the saved commission with the customer in the form of benefits, reduction, that you will not have elsewhere (e.g. a room with a view, a breakfast or a free drink).
  3. You will find the last real availabilities even if the other commercial sites display “full”.
  4. This is an economically responsible approach, which allows the hosts to invest, to renovate, to train themselves on the quality of service, to create jobs, to support the real economy on the territories because they make work all the local craftsmen for example.
  5. This is a way to find again an identity among the quantity of establishments, to differentiate and allow everyone to be creative. Booking platforms display the presentation cards of the establishments in an impersonal and uniform way: shorted by online booking centers and other review sites, hoteliers are trying to reconnect with their customers.
  6. The deal was simpler before with the Michelin guide, The Pages Jaunes or the Tourist Office. So many business introducers who have lost their role of prescription
  7. The money you spend stays in the territory and is not tax optimized via tax havens by online booking platforms: these websites are based overseas and are not taxed in France.

Thank you to all those who promote the directly booking!

Did you know?

A little story… Black soap is the ultimate Breton soap: In fact, immense flax fields were present in Brittany and made it a region rich in linseed oil production, main ingredient of black soap.
