The project is located in the center of the pedestrian zone on Rue Carnot in Saint Remy de Provence. Hotel de Tourrel d' ALMERAN Maillane is a hotel particulier of a noble family who was in service of the French king. The house was built 1650 as a private residence. It served as town residence and was used for representation expenses. The remarkable architecture , the classic strict Renaissance façade stands out with its clarity and its sculptural roof edge with 7 immense gargoyles as well as its monumental staircase made of solid sandstone.
In memory of the premiere of the opera Mireille by the composer Charles Gounodund in the first floor of the building in 1863 a sculpture was placed on the southwest corner of the building in 1909.
The building is located in close proximity with other significant buildings from that time, for example the Hotel de Montdragon next door, housing the Historic Museum of Saint Remy de Provence.
In order to realize the Hotel project two buildings were bought: the historic Hotel Particulier on house number 5 and the annexe (house number 7), which originally, belonged to house number 5. The project reunited the hotel particulier, which was divided during the centuries. With redesign of the annexe No. 5 the stand-alone buildings Hotel de Tourrel and Hotel de Montdragon got a modern link. The Hotel has 2 contemporay and 5 classic Suites.
All suites and public spaces are furnished by. www.classicon.com and talermade furniture, outdoor furniture Ego Paris. A spacious Restaurant, a Winebar with a selection of 350 different wines, a pool terrace and Roof - top terrace.
‘When a 17th Century private Mansion meets the design of the 20th Century, the result is amazing. In the heart of the old village of Saint Remy de Provence, this exclusive address teases you with its wine cellar offering you many Grands Crus. The restaurant next door sounds like an invitation you can’t refuse.’
