On my last trip to Paris, I fell in love with Jean Didier Georges. It’s the name of the cozy blue room at the adorable boutique hotel “La Villa 1901” in Nancy, France. The host Isabelle has turned the former family house into a luxurious hideaway and named the rooms after each of her kids. Love the touch of vintage, the colours and all the little details. So relaxed and sophisticated. Perfect! Argh, I really need to go back there.

It’s not a secret anymore. Traveling to France is one of my favorite pleasures in life. Especially when I can spend the nights in a nice cozy place with a great breakfast.

Look what I’ve found on my last trip to Paris. La Villa 1901 in Nancy is definitely one of the top places to stop. It’s a super cool boutique hotel with a cute concept store in the garden. The wonderful host Isabelle has turned this place into a little oasis. Her breakfast is just as amazing as her interior decoration style.

I’m in love with this place. It’s all really inspiring. Soon, I will post more photos of the rooms. If you can’t wait, click on my homepage for more pictures.

When the days are getting longer and the birds don’t stop singing, I’m counting the days to start the road-trip season.
If you are planning to travel through the Picardy province in the North of France, don’t miss the eco-responsible guest house “Les Mazures” in the heart of the village Beaumetz. The lovely hosts came up with a nice b&b concept, which is a great mixture of nature, design and good food. The modern bioclimatic house and the sustainable approach are just as interesting as the impressive garden and the cute animals. It has been very inspiring how simple solutions and actions can make a difference.

Are you ready for a relaxing time out in Brittany, France? There is no better place than “La Matine”.
This little chambre d’hotes has been carefully renovated and decorated by the lovely ceramist Colette and her charming husband. The couple knows how to spoil their guests with a great breakfast, homemade jam and delicious crêpe. Make sure you have a glance at Colette’s ceramic atelier. She is doing beautiful outdoor accessories and pottery decorated with her own poems. I’ve been there in June just before the high season started. It’s so quiet and peaceful.  A romantic stroll along the cliff is a “must do” before you go to bed. Enjoy the dramatic sunset. Bon nuit!

La Surprise is a very cute and charming boutique bed & breakfast, hidden in the mountains of Grasse at Côte d’Azur, France. It has been almost a year ago that I have spend some very relaxing days at La Surprise. The hosts of this mini paradise are Steve and Claire from England. Claire is the queen of decoration and she truly knows how to make an amazing breakfast. Steve is the one who knows all the fun places and stories about the area and its people. They even made a little travel book with all kind of tips and ideas about the area. Love it!

Traveling by car all the way to Paris is a long and exciting adventure. Especially if you are taking a break at Château de la Resle in the heart of Burgundy, France. This luxury bed and breakfast has been the cherry on the cake of our trip. The Dutch sweethearts Pieter and Johan turned this place into a dream come true. Lovely rooms with great style, an amazing selection of contemporary art and a breakfast to kill for, makes you wanna stay there forever. There is so much more to share about this great place that I have to split the post. So stay tuned for more la Resle stories.

Waking up in Paris with this view and the great breakfast from Claire is something I can really get used to. So far we have had a very nice trip. I have to keep going! The sun is shining and Paris is waiting out there.
