Privilege Room Harbour View Evangeline
- 2 people
- Twin beds or double bed 200x200
The room in shades of jade is soft and poetic to recall the personality of Evangeline, with its wallpaper NINA CAMPBELL (birdcage walk collection), its fabrics BEACON HILL for the shepherdesses, and CANOVAS for the curtains.
Evangeline allows us to honor the link between Acadia and Poitou Charente and more particularly Brouage. Among the French that emigrated to Canada in the 17th century, the largest group came from Poitou, Aunis and Saintonge. In the 20th century, half of the Acadian population had a poitevine-saintongeaise roots. That's why Envangeline, as the heroine of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem and identity myth of Acadia, proved to be a choice in the Hôtel de Toiras.
The 5 Premium rooms overlooking the interior garden look like a Moroccan patio, offers a calm conducive to relaxation and change of scenery.
