In a seaside town of wide sands and blue sea hides an 18th-century house in a church-side garden: Phillipe’s B&B. Across the courtyard, in stable and barn, is the gorgeous sitting room: a minstrels’ gallery, books, magazines, tapestries, an ornate chandelier… and smouldering embers scenting the air. Big bedroom suites are just as enchanting, one on the ground floor, another up private stairs. Fresh flowers and macaroons welcome you, antiques and silver coffee pots delight you, walls are in soft blues and greys, and breakfast arrives in wicker baskets stuffed with local and homemade treats. Seduction by the sea!
