— How does a British couple end up running a ‘hotel particulier’ in the south of France?
We wanted to create a place that is exceptional, with beautiful 18th century features and contemporary interior design, much attention to detail, with all the luxuries and comfort of a small boutique hotel while also having your private area as in a regular holiday home.
