A UNIQUE ATMOSPHERE

 

This presentation will celebrate the intemporal spirit of the Grand Tour and will illustrate the way of life of this contemporary esthete. This signature atmosphere brings together old master paintings, antique sculptures as well as vintage  or contemporary signed furniture.

SELECTION OF

RENOWED ARTISTS

 

Exceptional works by renowned artists are exhibited in this interior with its warm inviting muted tones : Bellotto, Canaletto, Paul Evans, Philip and Kelvin Laverne, Bruno Gambone, along with many others.

BREATHTAKING ROOMS

 

The courtyard of the Abbey has been transformed into a magnificent landscaped central garden with a Tuscan feel, filled with cypresses, olive trees, boxwoods and rosemary surrounding a sculpture of Adonis and monumental screens by Harry Bertoïa.

To be discovered on two levels is a suite of different curated rooms and cabinets de curiosités.
