Errol Flynn and Rudolph Valentino were once entertained by Gordon Coutts, a Scottish painter who owned a Moroccan villa––one of the two villas that make up this pensione (family-run guesthouse). The hotel still attracts the “in” crowd, including professional photographers and actors. With one and a half acres that include such rooms as the Sparta Studio and Nomad Suite, accommodations have their own personality. For example, the Artist Studio is mostly white and is the room in which Winston Churchill is rumored to have set up his easel. Outdoor activities include evening movies and heated pools.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
