I readily admit to being a Francophile and loving all things French (excluding Sweetbreads and anything covered in Aspic)!

But you don’t have to be. Let me transport you to a magical place located in the small and quaint 16th century village of Brantone, France. It’s the Hotel Moulin de l’Abbaye.

As a holistic interior designer who specializes in creating spaces that excite all of your senses, this little hotel has it all.

Traditional with its bright blue shutters, pink flower filled window boxes, and ivy colored, white washed walls, it positively screams “let me take you away to a simpler place and time.”

The suites are exactly what you would expect; French country design.  Comforting, cozy, yet also sophisticated. You really don’t want to leave your suite. But…

Imagine walking on ancient cobblestone streets not knowing what “treasures” await you just around the next corner. You find the perfect “thing” to take home, or maybe more than one. Something that is exactly right for your home and will remind you of this beautiful place.

Now you’re back at the hotel and dining on a sun-dappled patio along the River Dronne. Can’t you just taste a chilled glass of white wine along with a warm, freshly baked, just out of the oven baguette?

I hope you enjoy your visual journey and that your senses are heightened enough to maybe want to visit this wonderful little town and the Hotel de l’Abbaye.

It’s certainly on my list of places to see and enjoy. For real!

Until next time, au revoir…
