Sarah’s Room

Ground Floor

Sarah

Sarah's room is a room of creaky floorboards and vibrant, purple walls… theatrical and in Pop Rock style of course. Its oriental bathroom and overall indulgence will seduce you. Open the heavy, red velvet curtains of the French doors that lead out on to the terrace… the fragrance of wisteria and lavender… mmmmm!

Oh! Views over the park and forest and a Midsummer Night's Dream await you. 

Sarah Bernhardt, daughter of a dressmaker and an unknown father, is one of the most important French actresses of the 19th and early 20th century. Named by Victor Hugo as “The Golden Voice”, by others “The Divine” or even the “Empress of the Theatre”, she was the first international star to have completed several successful tours of the 5 continents. Cocteau invented, for Sarah Bernhardt, the expression “Sacred Monster”. Her motto: “So what!” with reference to her audacity and overall contempt and disregard for established mores.
