The house is part of a unique and secluded terrace on a hill, originally built in 1851. It has been renovated throughout in 2009 by the deft hand of a fashion designer with great flair and warmth. The house mixes comfortable contemporary furnishings with delightful antiques for a stylish and relaxed atmosphere.
A short path along the terrace leads through a sunny planted south-west facing courtyard, to the main entrance.

Oak floors and under floor heating on the ground level and plush mink carpets add to the luxury. The sunny dining room overlooking the serene lavender filled courtyard has a large French style table to seat 8 and an antique cabinet with tablemats and games.
