There is so much to discover, enjoy and savour in this magnificent country and particularly in the Provence region with its contrasts from beach resorts and picturesque coastlines, to hilltop villages, mountains and ski resorts and a unique combination of romance, glamur and a Mediterranean climate.

We adore the French style and elegance and our apartment reflects this in its décor and furnishings for both our comfort and enjoyment and for yours.
