Our favourite rooms
Each room is different, and all have their own quirks and charms. Deborah’s Suite was the artist’s bedroom, and has a wooden floor, stone fireplace and and the original bed frame, which bears a gilded inscription. Aura, the owner’s suite, is another favourite among guests. It’s on the top floor, and has a private terrace overlooking the stone courtyard and lush gardens.
There’s a hot tub on the roof terrace that's fed by a steady cascade of water coming from a long, thin cut in the wall. The bar is just a few steps away, making this a choice spot for sipping gin cocktails at sundown.
The rustic spa tent is on the roof terrace, and can be shielded from view with thick white drapes. Before your treatment, slip into a placid state on the daybed outside, which is strewn with patterned cushions and surrounded by greenery, including a planter of fragrant lavender. For your treatment, try the signature herbal aromatic massage, where the therapist places sachets of herbs at key points around the body, applying pressure to relax the muscles. You can also book private yoga classes with a highly regarded teacher.
