The “Marie-Cardinal” bedroom: “The Words to Say It”

La Madelène was novelist Marie Cardinal’s vacation resort for 20 years.

She first enjoyed huge success with her 1975 novel The Words to Say It. La Madelène appears in several of her works. We wished to pay tribute to the author by dedicating a room to her in her name and by planting a camellia in the garden.

As Marie Cardinal wrote, “La Madelène does not belong to us. We are only its guardians.”

This room has independent outside entrance. Halfway between the inner courtyard and the pool, the front door can be found on your right.

The bedroom has a dual exposure. To the west, under the slope of the roof, a window overlooks the swimming pool, providing beautiful light in the afternoon and evening. To the north, another window overlooks the garden with the great cypress of Provence.
