The Ridola Relais includes 2 suites and 6 rooms, 24 beds in all.Each room has its own peculiarity: those facing south are painted with fresh colouring being bluish (turquoise and violet), while the ones facing north have warmer colouring being yellowish (ochre and apricot).The fittings, which offer an absolute comfort, are a snappy mix of old furniture of the same period as the residence and of innovative elements of modern design. Each room offers:
