Unleash your imagination and abandon your reserve as you are greeted warmly by the Goddess Pomona, overlooking the entrance to the mansion. Welcome to Villa Simonne, where nothing matches and nothing is what it is seems. If you are looking for a high-strung concierge who knows what you need before you do, a traditional hotel room with neutral walls, convenient plug points and a quiet sense of dignity, you have come to the wrong place.
