A feel of the 50's still lingers around this candy box of a hotel, and Jean Cocteau could have (but didn't) designed some of the décor. The sophisticated clientele includes numerous artists and writers. The hotel, an old villa only a few minutes walk up form the bay, is owned by the Marchesi Sersale family and was their private residence until 1951. The marchesa personally selects all furnishings, which included fine carved chests, 19th-century paintings and old prints, a spinet piano, upholstered pieces in bold colors, and a Victorian cabinet from an old jewelry shop. The bedrooms, many with Jacuzzi, are varied, and all have terraces that overlook the village. Your room may have an iron bed, high and ornate and pinted red, as well as a carved chest and refectory tables.
