Our favourite rooms
Junior suite Les Gypseries has a mammoth-tubbed bathroom, floor-to-ceiling windows and walk-in wardrobe; a hand-carved bucolic scene and faux-fur bedspread may sound rustic, but it’s all swag-free and minimal. The two suites on the ground floor, Les Papillons and Les Pavôts, are ideal for long stays or family visits, since they share a full kitchen. Look out for Cole & Son wallpaper that inspired the rooms’ names, for example: the flamingoes in superior double Les Flamants Roses.
Some kind of flagstone-friendly footwear – flip-flops in summer, or slippers in winter.
Non-smoking throughout. Two-night minimum stay (one-night stays are possible, but incur an extra €50 charge).
Welcome in ground-floor suites Les Papillons and Les Pavôts. Babies can stay free in cots; extra beds are €40 for children up to 15. Babysitting can be arranged a week in advance for €15 an hour.
