A palace
in the East

This 18th century palace, located in one of the world's oldest cities, was in a state of total disrepair when we agreed to restore its previous splendour.

The idea was to restore it using exclusively old materials and regional period furniture.

We redecorated all the terraces, built an ornamental pond on the roof and installed a summer dining room for breakfast and meals on the waterfront. A spectacular "hammam" was designed and created in the natural cave discovered under the house.

The ground floor was treated like an apartment, creating direct connection between all the rooms, making it more comfortable in winter (originally, only the courtyard allowed access to each room).

Beautiful old painted ceilings (some from India) were installed in all reception rooms and bedrooms, perfectly creating the impression that they had always been there.

Bathrooms were designed and annexed to each room: tubs carved from a single block of stone, arches and vaulted ceilings, fountains...

The palace is furnished throughout with carpets, lamps, furniture and ancient objets d'art from the finest antique dealers in the region.

Today, this palace is striking in its almost mineral purity, with elegance worthy of a tale from the Thousand and One Nights.
