CENTRE POMPADOUR offers a lot of privacy, surrounded by a lot of nature. the three guest rooms each have their own private bathroom. other facilities include a top-floor attic atelier of 50m2, a well assorted library of women’s history readings and art literature, a well-tuned piano, and spacious indoor and outdoor living areas intended to be filled with creativity.
