In the bedroom department it would be truer to talk of characters rather than character as the rooms, split across three buildings, reflect different styles. Many might prefer the simplest rooms in Le Mas, the 18th-century farmhouse, which embrace a floral country-chic look. These traditional, panelled rooms are chintzy but restrained and may feature a small terrace framed by jasmine. All-terraced rooms in the newer La Bastide building are bigger and more eclectic, ranging from flouncily feminine to faintly Art Deco. In the all-suites Villa Candille, the look is contemporary, incorporating exposed stone, splashes of colour, parquet floors, picture windows and panoramic terraces. Tucked into hillside below the original farmhouse, the suites also boast an arty roof garden. Expect swish grey marble bathrooms laden with ESPA potions throughout the property.
