Lovers of History will particularly appreciate this private mansion, which over the past four Centuries has witnessed the birth of a literary figure, hosted celebrities in Art and Politics and has established itself as a living heritage in the town of Tournon-Sur-Rhône. Inspired by the 18th Century, the décor is a subtle blend of tradition and modernity, where comfort meets pleasure and relaxation. The elegance and refinement of the hotel can be felt through its furnishings, for example the authentic mantelpieces, the stone stairway with its wrought iron banister and the walnut front door- parts of the hotel are actually classified as historical monuments.
Across the Rhône river from the famous village of Tain l’Hérmitage, Tournon-sur-Rhône is nestled between the world-famous Hérmitage and Saint-Joseph vineyards and is stamped in History, from the medieval town centre to the 16th Century chapels. For guests arriving by train, the hotel is accessible from Tain l’Hérmitage station on foot and for those arriving by car, there is a public car park located a few minutes’ walk from the hotel, which costs 9 Euros per day.
The warm welcome provided by the hotel’s multi-lingual reception team will instantly make you feel at home, and the bar is the perfect setting for wine tasting. Light snacks are also available at the bar. Running down the slope from the property, the hotel gardens are conducive to contemplation and relaxation, and the view overlooking Hérmitage Hill is spectacular. For further relaxation, there is a reading lounge. A buffet breakfast is served every morning from 7:30 to 10:30 am, and guests have access to complimentary WIFI throughout the hotel (with the exception of the garden).
