The guesthouse Bienvenue is settled in a building dating back to the end of the 19th century. With its Parisian style its charm remained unchanged. The guesthouse sits on four floors; the second one mainly devoted to living rooms and common life spaces.

It welcomes long stay guest as well as passing guest staying for only a couple of days. The only condition being you need to be a woman to be allowed to stay.

Each floor is made up of 7 to 9 rooms, all very well kept. The health premises (showers, toilets and washbasins) are available on each floor.

The housekeepers, who are running the guesthouse, are listening to their guests and have created a very friendly and cosy atmosphere. They do their best to make guests' life easier, while respecting their quietness and privacy.

For those willing Bienvenue is a privileged place to meet other women coming from all over the globe, or to rest from the agitation of urban life.
