Step through a large wooden door into a world of tiled floors, burnt sienna walls, large pots with plants and a beautiful courtyard open to the sky – with a covered and cushioned area for shade or rainy days. You’re welcomed by friendly owners Gwen and Carole who live with their children on the ground floor; orginal stone staircases take you up to rooms on the floors above. Gwen is a musician, hence the musical theme.
Breakfast is a treat: cold meats, cheeses, pastries, fresh fruit, local jams and honey, muesli and excellent coffee. Venture down the small cobbled street to a lovely square where you can spend hours people watching from the cafes or exploring the medieval architecture. The Tuesday market is fabulous but neighbouring Beaucaire has a good one too – and lively restaurants right beside its canal.
Return to comfortable rooms overlooking street or patio and a nightcap in the creeper-covered courtyard.
