Cottage Le Clos de la Rose
I thought I could show you where we stayed a few nights in a special B&B, at Rose Cottage.
In a quiet hamlet, surrounded by countryside this was a wonderful place to spend a few nights.
The beauty of staying in a B&B, you can experience the genuine warmth and friendliness of the people. It was fun living in a French home and you do not get that staying in a hotel. Also great to talk with the owners and learn so much about the area.
Every night there would always be a big roaring fire to keep the house warm and the glow of candles everywhere made for a wonderful ambience.
Tucked away in the country, this is an excellent place to visit, one hour from Paris and near the Champagne region. The charming home was peaceful, relaxing and a very unique and special place.
As it was winter time when we were there, there was frost on the ground and all over our car when we made an early morning start. The gardens were lovely to walk around too and imagine in Spring it would be very pretty with the blossom on the trees.
Madame Veronique had a wonderful collection of beautiful old linen and laces that she sold from her home. I was happy to buy a gorgeous old linen monogrammed sheet to take home.
My husband and I celebrated here, being married for 25 years.
Madame Veronique kindly baked a chocolate cake for us, so that was a lovely touch
Hope your week is going well
