About The House
Attentive hosts welcome you to their charming, guest house located in the Alpes-Maritimes department. Whilst respecting the original character of the house such as maintaining its persienne shutters and terracotta hexagonal floor tiles (in a tommettes style), the ground floor has been transformed into three independent guest rooms.
Each bedroom provides you high quality bedding and towels. The shower rooms have been stocked with ‘Fragonard’ toiletries, hair dryer and robes. All the rooms have a double bed and we can provide cots for babies whilst children under two stay free of charge. For those special occasions we are happy to make your evenings extra romantic such as providing flowers or champagne…
This double room welcomes the rising sun, with calm white walls and green décor, a pretty painted chandelier,and a lovely view of the old village of Contes.
