A wonderful, sumptuous place to relax and unwind. la petite chambre Matisse is a lovely retreat – thanks for the experience.
We both enjoyed our stay in this beautiful room, we felt a million miles away. We’ll be back!
Driving around Tasmania has been full of beauty and surprises. La Petite Chambre Matisse has been one of them – and also unique. To enjoy its ambience, comfort and to be able to leave a little piece of us behind ‘in the colouring book’ makes this place memorable. PS exceptional breakfast – loved it!
Thank you. The Matisse room was so comfy and regal. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We especially liked the fruit toast.
“I stayed in la petite chambre Matisse, intrigued by the idea of art, design and accommodation, not knowing quite what to expect. What I found was a unique experience of art and music and beauty and the feeling of a bygone era in a most contemporary way. The interpretation of history and art is exquisitely presented. The welcome and service was warm though not intrusive, and the attention to detail and the modern layouts including the luxury of apple TV music and movies, the glass and stainless steel bathroom with underfloor heating…I could easily get used to this beauty and space. Thankyou Rebecca and Jack for sharing and making this historic home and space with like minded people. Good Luck.”
