The apartment is on the first floor of a beautiful limestone building, typical of the local classical architectural style, with its large windows opening onto a long balcony which directly overlooks the “Jardin Public”. The apartment enjoys a privileged location within the UNESCO classified sector and because it faces in a Southwardly direction, it is extremely light.
The apartment was renovated in 2011, to introduce a touch of modernity and color while respecting all the traditional fixtures and mouldings. Particular care was given to the quality of its furnishings and of its equipment, while maintaining the classical refinement of its style. We believe it offers an sophisticated, comfortable and cozy atmosphere. A quiet area, equipped with WiFi, a printer and a scanner, provides all the necessary amenities for work or study (should you need to) during your stay. The apartment provides a comfortable living space to two people.
