Our favourite rooms
Room 28 is a deluxe room with a warm autumnal palette of ruby reds and russet browns, and pretty village views. Peek out of the windows and you can admire the village’s winding streets. Room 36 is a spacious junior suite, with high ceilings and a soft dove grey and pink colour scheme, as well as a big bathroom, and dazzling views. If you want a roof terrace to remember, book Suite 50, which overlooks the mountains and the Med beyond.
Pared down elegance for the restaurant; cobble-friendly shoes; a sketch pad and water colours for aspiring artists.
