Named for Mathilde Musson, Edgar Degas’ cousin, who lived in this wing of the house with her husband and their 3 children, the Mathilde Suite is a spacious and beautifully-appointed 2 -bedroom suite with private balcony overlooking historic Esplanade Avenue and Gayarre Park beneath a canopy of massive live oaks. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, with a hand-carved double bed from Normandy in the other. There is also a private kitchen and a large bathroom with Jacuzzi.
The Mathilde accommodates up to 4 people. It is often reserved well in advance for visiting scholars and others planning extended stays. Extended corporate rentals welcome. Please call to inquire about availability. Some rates are negotiable.
