A family story
The Hotel la Gabelle, formely named Hotel de la Loire, was created in January 1965 by Michel et Maryvonne Redureau. This small hotel had only a few rooms with minimum comfort. Six years later, Michel and Maryvonne decided to renovate the hotel:
In 1972 they added a floor to the hotel, which housed 18, fully equipped comfortable rooms. The restaurant, the kitchen and the façade were also renovated. For one year, when the main renovation work was carried out, the restaurant was moved to a family room situated in the town. In 1986 further renovation work was carried out in the rooms, reception hall, bar and reception rooms.
In 1987, their son, Franck, came back to work at la Gabelle after a few years spent learning the trade (Le Vert D’Eau in Angers, Fouquet’s in Paris, the Hôtel St Paul in Noirmoutier, le Ravenstein in Bruxelles etc…).
In 1991, Franck married Brigitte who completed the team. In 1992, their daughter, Laura, was born (who is now also learning the trade) and in 1997 Alexandre was born who is actually learning Boulangerie.
