Lovers of History will particularly appreciate this private mansion, which over the past four Centuries has witnessed the birth of a literary figure, hosted celebrities in Art and Politics and has established itself as a living heritage in the town of Tournon-Sur-Rhône. Inspired by the 18th Century, the décor is a subtle blend of tradition and modernity, where comfort meets pleasure and relaxation. The elegance and refinement of the hotel can be felt through its furnishings, for example the authentic mantlepieces, the stone stairway with its wrought iron banister and the walnut front door- parts of the hotel are actually classified as historical monuments.
