With a tip of the hat to François Truffaut’s film of the same name, a photo of the movie’s stars Fanny Ardant and Gérard Depardieu hangs in the entryway. Throughout the guesthouse, this cinematic theme continues: over 200 photos of actresses from the 1950s to the present—collected by Nathalie, the owner—are hung in the hallways, stairways, and rooms. The original architecture of the town house, which lies in the historic center of Saint Valéry-sur-Somme, has been carefully preserved and the interiors updated with a fresh, yet subtle décor that alternates between charm and humor. This intimate universe has been given a soft, personal touch with four different decors in the four rooms, to be discovered one by one, accompanied by the stars of the silver screen.
La Femme d’A Côté, a timeless muse for a holiday that floats between myth and reality, like in the movies.
