"A four-star boutique hotel in peaceful Orangerie, Villa Novarina occupies a light-filled 1955 building with large bay windows and balconies. Designed by local architect Maurice Novarina, it's set back from the road, with an attractive pool in the front garden. The rear overlooks the greenery of the Parc de l'Orangerie. The airy white guest rooms feature midcentury pieces and antiques, abstract painting by local artists and the creative contributions of the children of owners Christine and Jacques Claus. Book a top-floor room for cathedral views, or the basement suite with its distinctive patio. In the dining room, there's an eclectic miw of Verner Panton chairs, fine tableware and a collection of Steiff teddy bears."
