Max our Golden Retriver and we look forward to welcoming you into our old house (1718) in the old part of La Roque d’Anthéron.
We only have two rooms, which are both decorated in soft gentle colours and have everything for our guests to have a relaxing and comfortable stay. Both bedrooms and shower rooms were renovated a few years ago. Each guest will be given towels, a pool towel, a bathrobe, and there are hand cream, body wash and shampoo, as well as there is a hair dryer in each shower room.
Bedroom 1 - The Tamara Room:
This bedroom (24.5 sqm) has a king size bed, a daybed, desk, wardrobe, chest of drawers, small table and chairs, A/C. It has an en-suite shower room. There is a little balcony with a small table, 2 chairs, and wonderful views towards the mountains. This bedroom is decorated in soft white/sandy/green colours. The price is 130.00€ per night for 1 or 2 people staying. A surcharge of 50.00€ per night is applied if a 3rd person stays in the room. A surcharge of 20.00€ is applied for bedding for the daybed (ie if 1 person uses the king bed solely and 1 person person uses the daybed)! Breakfast is included in the price. (This room is named after the artist Tamara de Lempicka (1898-1980).

This bedroom (24 sqm) has 2 single beds, a daybed, desk, wardrobe, small table and chairs, chest of drawers, A/C. It has a private separate shower room and private separate toilet.

A surcharge of 50.00€ per night is applied if a 3rd person stays in the room. Breakfast is included in the price. (This room is named after a best friend, and the rose coloured assessories in the room).
NB! Both bedrooms are on the 2nd floor, so if you have difficulty in climbing a staircase, our old house might not be for you!
Our guests will be able to enjoy the pool (9m x 4m - not heated) in our lovely little garden, which is quiet and private, full of nice flowers including lavender, a couple of fig and olive trees, a nice fountain, and this is also where we serve breakfast on the terrace between 08.00-09.00. If the weather is really bad, breakfast will be served inside!
There is an enclosed shower (we ask guests to shower, for hygenic reasons, before using the pool) and there is also a separate toilet outside.
Our hall is for our guests to relax in. Our old family piano has found its way into the big fireplace and loves to be played, but our motto is 'If you can play the piano, please do, if you can’t, please don’t' ☺ - you will also find quite a few books here, as well as on the mezzanine and on the 1st floor.
NB! Our old house is not suitable for children under the age of 16!
NB! We do not accept pets (we have a very friendly Golden Retriever).
