Walk down a cobbled narrow street and through a tall wooden gate into another world – a glorious walled garden with soaring plane trees, manicured lawns, box hedges and paved paths, and a handsome three-storey house framed with trees, shrubs and climbers.
Amaury and his partner Gilles live on the top floor with their friendly Weimaraner and two shy cats and will take great care of you with the help of their attentive staff. Breakfast is served around an oval table in the dining room or at separate tables on the patio – bread, pastries, cakes, jams, fruit salad and freshly-squeezed orange juice, plus cheeses and charcuterie on request.
Two spectacular salons are furnished with a mix of antiques and modern art, and a paved garden path winds past a bamboo grove and aviary to a tucked-away swimming pool and spa. The Michelin-starred restaurant La Mirande is a four-minute walk, and an abundance of other restaurants a little further – Amaury will happily show you the way on foot.
