Sunny colours run throughout the upscale boutique hotel, which looks deceptively plain from the outside. Inside, you will find 30 well-appointed rooms of varying sizes; most enjoy garden views. The sun-drenched patio is a real treat – enjoy your buffet breakfast amid the foliage in the warmer months.

Eccentric furnishings make this boutique guest house an Instagrammer’s dream: a quirky light fixture here, a bold artwork there. The intimate property is in the heart of Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, a medieval town on the other side of the river Rhone to Avignon. There are six rooms and three suites. Each is named after a letter of the alphabet – A, B, C, etc – following the quirky theme. The owners instruct guests to “be greedy, be demanding, and forget the time”, with a decadent breakfast to start the day, followed by a spot of sightseeing and a dip in the heated pool on return. A real highlight here is the personalised service, with everything from macaroons to bouquets of flowers arranged on request.
