Apart from the copper plaque on the carved door, nothing hints at the existence of this quiet place, which has a gorgeous flower garden and a delightful turquoise swimming pool. Canopies, curtains, quilts, kilims, and archways participate in the intimacy of the Oriental decor and the comfort of the 12 rooms and suites.
An exclusive intimacy presides in this corner of paradise by day, making it ideal for a couple or family. But in the evening, from 7:00 p.m. onwards, the bar turns into a lounge and the pool is cleverly converted into a dance floor. The cocktails are delicious (try the Sweet Pan Deï with champagne, lychee puree and Saint-Germain liqueur), and the international wine list very well chosen. Come dinnertime, chef Marco Garfagnini expertly combines Italian cuisine with local influences, bringing diners creations such as saffron arancini with a spicy tuna tartare.
