Anex with two apartments with a kitchenette are in the back, just ideal for groups travelling with staff or family members who need added privacy.
The ground floor is a vast, open-concept area with high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, flooding the airy space with daylight. The FLOS open bulb chandelier adds a chic tone to the neutral color palette and grey Minotti sofas. To the side of the lounge, find a dining table by the windows and a kitchen in the back, separated by a black marble floor-to-ceiling partition with an integrated fireplace. The kitchen is fully equipped and features large work surfaces and an additional storage area. On the opposite side of the lounge, a library area with a bar is an ideal place for quiet conversations, book moments and après-sunset cognacs.

Many open to balconies or French windows, allowing you to enjoy the views from your oversized bed or window-side chaise. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. All white with Carrara marble floors, walls and countertops, ceiling rain showers and Choppard cosmetics, they are gems in their own right.
