Relax with a chilled glass of
rosé by our pool

After a day of sightseeing, take a dip in the cool waters of our pool - set amid tranquil Mediterranean gardens. Enjoy a chilled glass of rosé from a local winery, or let us make you one of our famous cocktails. The property also offers a large and very comfortable sitting room with a television and range of games. We also offer free Wi-Fi internet inside and out.

Delicious breakfasts,
lunches & dinners

Richard is a keen cook, and will be on hand every morning preparing a delicious breakfast with fresh breads and croissants from our local bakery. At mid-day, we’ll be offering tasty lunches which you can enjoy by the pool. And in the evenings we are happy to provide dinners or light suppers as well as recommending local restaurants, including our favourite Chez Jean Marc.
