description

Our guesthouse occupies one half of the 'belle etage' or 'piano nobile', the grandest of the four floors at the front of our house. Our accommodation is mostly in the form of sets of rooms (bedroom, living room, and bathroom).

The two front sets (roughly 40 sq. m. and 60 sq.m.) look out over the Academy's garden - a dense wall of greenery in the summer and a delicate tracery of branches, Classical columns, and open space in the winter. These sets are:

a) 'rooms with Dutch stove': two interconnecting rooms with their own bathroom. The first room is really a sitting room and has a single bed; the second has a double bed and a handsome and extremely wide antique desk (perfect place to spread out your books, notes, or artist's sketch pad).

b) the 'Balcony set': this has a drawing room and small library in addition to its bedroom and separate (not ensuite) bathroom; it also has a generous balcony - an ideal place to drink coffee of a morning.

The two rooms at the back of the apartment overlook the courtyard. 'Silver' is a large, light room - a series of spaces which flow into an open bathroom (40 sq.m. in all). 'Lotus' is our smallest room, but again has its own bathroom (about 18 m2 in all).

We offer free breakfast (in our large kitchen / dining room), free Wi-Fi connection, free tea and coffee, but also all the help that you will need in discovering and understanding this extraordinary city.
