A LABYRINTH OF HISTORY
My labyrinthine appearance was given to me by the reconstruction of my walls over time. I house many surprises: a majestic spiral staircase from the 16th century, travertine bathrooms, Roman cellars... so many wonders that I would be delighted to show you. I am a clever mix of ancient and modern: industrial materials rub shoulders with the typical building stones of the south of France.Every year, I am delighted to welcome under my roof visitors from all over the world travelling on foot, by car, motorbike or bicycle and even on a tandem.
For 70 years, my former owners took good care of me by equipping me with modern and comfortable furniture. They worked continuously to make me more beautiful. They have carried out the necessary renovations to keep me up to date.
Recently, a new family has taken me in hand: a family from the country who have come to live in the city. They are young people, the last one is only a few months old, full of motivation and ideas. They want to make me bigger and continue to make me prosper, and they want to make me a place of peace and adelphity.
They have already given me a touch of freshness by finding and rehabilitating old furniture, thus giving each room its singularity, or by planting the terrace: now butterflies, bees and dragonflies have joined us.
We treat each individual equally, we appreciate differences and consider them as an asset. We like to practice a sincere and unpretentious welcome. We prefer the term "visitor" or "traveller" to "customer": we favour human contact between equals.
We belong to a district, a city, a region and we want to highlight all the good initiatives that emerge there. We admire the cultural and natural heritage of our region and are keen to deepen our knowledge and pass it on. We want to participate in a common sense trade, to run small businesses that are as local as possible, innovative, creative and sensitive to the protection of nature.
