The loggia is filled plants and flowers and this requires our gardener's presence for watering. The time table will be defined by mutual agreement between our visitors and us.
It was a privilege to stay in this wonderful historic house, where Moliere himself, no less, performed. The apartment has been beautifully restored in a manner which retains its classic atmosphere but adds high-quality, tasteful modern fittings with, appropriately, the occasional theatrical flourish.
Pezenas is a delight and everything here is at your feet: the market, brilliant shops and historic buildings. The atmosphere of the town is purposeful but relaxed and unlike some historic places, it is not given over entirely to tourism.
The apartment was very well-equipped, with several unexpected extras waiting in the fridge. Private enclosed parking was a welcome addition. The welcome was genuine and impeccable. This is a very special place and is recommended without hesitation.
We had an idyllic short break at Corinne's beautiful apartment. The property is even more stunning than the photos on the website suggest, comprising the entire top floor of a wonderful historic building. Corinne's impeccable taste and skill as an interior designer is in evidence everywhere and the apartment is furnished and equipped to the highest standard. Corinne is also a lovely host and was on hand throughout our stay to help with our questions. We wholeheartedly recommend Corinne's apartment and very much hope to return one day.
What an amazingly beautiful house! We were greeted by corinne the owner who was the perfect host. Her restaurant recommendation was very good. Pezenas was a stunning town and we would love to return there again one day. Thanks corinne!
We a had a lovely short stay at Corinne's Apartment. The building is amazing with big rooms, tall ceilings and a lovely balcony. The rooms are very nicely decorated and in keeping with the age of the building but brought right into the 21st century with a new kitchen and bathroom. It is situated right in the heart of Pezenas. From Rue Conti there is a small doorway which opens onto the courtyard. We arrived on a Tuesday night and found that there was going to be a small private theatrical play being performed in the court yard. from our top floor balcony we had the best view in the house. It was great.
I would highly recommend a stay in Corinne's Apartment.
nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Corinne.
L'accueil a été parfait et flexible car nous sommes arrivés plus tôt que prévu. Corbeille de fruits, café, bouteille de rosé, guide vert, tout était fait pour nous permettre de passer un agréable moment dans la très jolie ville de Pézenas.
L'appartement est situé dans un lieu historique et magnifique dans lequel a joué Molière ! Vieille pierres, belle terrasse, grande hauteur sous plafond, très bien meublé, à 2 pas du centre historique.
Nous le recommandons grandement !
We had an extraordinary stay at Corrine's hôtel particulier. It is such a special place, it really must be seen to be believed and i only wish our stay was longer. the apartment is beautifully renovated and had everything the three of us needed, with all the cookware in perfect condition. Corrine was even considerate enough to leave us a bottle of wine, fruit and a few lovely provisions in the fridge. We were originally planning to go out to dinner but changed plans and cooked at the house just to spend as much time as possible there. the long winding terrace overlooking the courtyard was so tranquil and beautiful, it was really hard to leave. A truly magical place.
