At Laurence du tilly, the original home concept

For lovers of weekend surprises, beautiful things and design, how about going to Normandy for a few days? We spotted a concept that you might like. Neither guest room nor hotel, Chez Laurence du tilly, these are three "apartment-rooms" with ultra-neat and warm decoration. The comfort of the guest house (but without its drawbacks) and the services of a hotel (without the impersonal side). A daring mix of genres which gives pride of place to the charm of the old. Visit this former mansion, in the heart of the old town, in Caen.

First: classic elegance


Laurence du tCilly Spacieux, this classic chic apartment, composed of a large living room, a kitchen and a bedroom, perfect the details: in the living room, a magnificent herringbone parquet covers the floor, moldings reminiscent of the apartments Haussmann style highlights the high ceilings and a functional black fireplace contrasts with the pristine white walls. The sofa transforms into a bed to accommodate four people.

… With a large, bright and soothing room


Laurence du tilly Like the living room, the bedroom takes care of the details. White, wood, light gray linen and a few notes of gold make it a soothing resting place conducive to relaxation. It has a desk and a small library. A ventilated space without being cold, bright while being cozy. Finally, a magnificent walk-in shower awaits you in this dream apartment.

Second: twentieth design


Laurence du tilly The second apartment has a contemporary decoration, with very nice designer pieces. We love its white, cream and gray living room on which is open a magnificent American kitchen, whose wall is painted in anthracite to create contrast and volume. A beautiful raw parquet provides everything you need for comfort and warmth. A subtle balance between post-war design and contemporary pieces gives an arty atmosphere to the apartment, in a very natural way and without museum effect.

Loft atmosphere for the 2nd floor apartment


Laurence du tilly Still on the second floor, let's move on to the beautiful dining area, open to the American kitchen, which has a 60s side with its chairs and its Tulip table. Ultra-equipped, functional, design and warm, it feels good! Then comes a small cozy corridor, converted into a contemporary office. It leads to the superb bedroom made of white and shades of gray, behind which hides an immaculate and huge walk-in shower.

A la carte services

On the third: the chalet hidden under the roofs


Laurence du tilly Surprise! It is a real little chalet that hides in this 18th century building. A dream cocoon for lovers, once you enter it, you no longer want to leave it. Its Scandinavian decor made of wood, cozy textiles and notes of cheerful colors give it its own style. Also composed of a living room, a bedroom and a kitchen, it will be the ideal place for a pampering weekend.

An intimate terrace that is worth seeing


Laurence du tilly The highlight of the third show is the terrace! Intimate, green and very quiet, you can have breakfast there from the first rays of sun. As for the bedroom, we like the glass roof open to the corridor and especially the open bathtub. A must for lovers.

A hall transformed into a cozy lounge


Laurence du tilly As we are not here at the hotel, the impersonal hall disappears in favor of a cozy lounge, equipped with a fireplace and an "honnesty bar". A place to share, meet or relax, this lounge, once again decorated with care, aims to be convivial.

Laurence's secret store

When you're a fan of cooking and decor, you obviously want to share! The opportunity to discover a magnificent vaulted cellar, full of charm and character. More information ?
