NUMBER OF ROOMS: 2 suites, 1 bedroom
CLOSED ANNUALLY: Open all year round

THE STORY: The English artist and poet Corinne Aivazian transformed this mansion (built in 1750) into a community residency for contemporary artists, along with a bed & breakfast. In addition to the common spaces with their very mix & match sense of décor (a gigantic living/dining room, a spectacular country kitchen, a terrace with daybeds and vintage armchairs, a Majorelle blue wall), Maison Salvadore boasts two suites (one with two bedrooms) and a double bedroom. Taking her inspiration from the space itself, Corinne restored the original fireplaces and embellished its patina with vintage furniture, ad hoc lamps, lace canopy bed curtains and hand-dyed sheets, livening it all up with artwork, dried flowers, magazines and records…. Double rooms starting at €65 a night.

TOILETRIES: There’s a selection of homemade “potions,” made with natural ingredients and presented in glass jars: soap infused with lavender oil, orange and thyme shampoo, detox face oil and cream.
INTERNET: Wifi (free)
BREAKFAST: Included, with coffee or tea, croissants, brioche and homemade jam, local honey and milk, orange juice.
MINI-BAR: No, but there’s a Nespresso machine available in every room, along with an electric teapot and mineral water.
LITTLE LUXURY: Various four-day “themed retreats” are always on the agenda: lessons on pottery or making natural body care products; play writing and performance ateliers; outdoor yoga all summer long!
