Description of Accommodation
La Moutière is not only a guesthouse with a self catering apartment in a restored 18th century Inn, La Moutière has its own very particular history.
La Moutière evokes memories of a time when actors and celebrities inspired us by their glamour, elegance and mystery. Famous lovers, artists and personalities known throughout the world came to dine & rest in this bucolic haven.
Amongst these legendary guests were : Yves Montant & Simone Signoret, Ava Gardner, the Shah of Iran, Jean Cocteau, Princess Grace of Monaco, Orson Wells & even Queen Elisabeth!
La Moutière has been retored and decorated with a modern, yet romantic touch ; the ambiance and authenticity of its singular past remains intact.
A harmony of colors, materials & aromas make breakfast in the open sky patio unlike any other.
La Moutière is also a legendary garden filled with roses, mint & other herbs, lilacs and an assortment of flowering bushes. Enjoy a fruit cocktail in a deckchair, turn back the clock, let yourself be carried back in time by the gentle lifestyle of Montfort L’Amaury.
The Grace bedroom
Like my namesake, I am beautiful and full of charm, with a white wooden floor, pearl grey and taupe patina furniture.
My large and comfortable bed, piled high with lovely beige & white cushions invites you to dream of life’s pleasures. My bathroom is zen and relaxing with its big charcoal colored stone slab floor, fabulous Italian style shower with glass walls and a huge shower head. Flowers and plants garnish my original bubble window. I am very sunny and restful: I am the room called Grace, after the princess who came to rest in the “auberge” over 50 years ago.
The Ava Suite
I am an elegant suite, rectangular in form. My floor is a warm grey color, my walls are a lighter shade of grey, my patina furniture is romantic and here and there, you’ll find orchids and small lamps unearthed in antique stores throughout France. When you enter it’s true bliss….
My bathroom is « design » with an Italian style shower and a big French window that lets all of the morning sun radiate its light.
My beauty and style suggest that an artist such as Ava Gardner, who also stayed in the « auberge », would have chosen this room to rest. My room name is Ava.
I am the smallest of the 3 rooms, suitable for both adults and children who share the bigger room’s bathroom. Wrapped in my chocolate, beige and white colors, calm and quiet, Orson Wells could have contemplated his next film from. My name is Orson.
