Cigalechanta - if you enter the website, there's a tab at the top to see the rooms.

Ooh, Donna, you definitely need to test it out... purely for scientific reasons of course!

I would love to spend some time there. The printmaking would be good too!
Oh well, maybe during the summer if I can manage it.

Have fun meeting Debbie and the famous Guy also! He's such a good-looking cat too.

Donna, I spent some time perusing your cousin-in-law's website. How beautiful! By the time I'd seen all the rooms and especially after seeing the photo full of dogs, my bags were nearly packed.

It looks like a lovely place to spend some time!

Donna, it's lovely! My Pc must not be working right. Yesterday, there were no tabs and the colors muted. Seems fine now.

What a superb website - really well done. If the website's that good, I can only begin to imagine what 'the real thing' is like!

While David is making up his mind, dibs on that feather bed in the rose room--what a pretty thing!

Well, I was thinking the Yellow Room, but if it's East facing then I'd want the Blue Room because I have this allergy to being woken up by sunlight at three in the morning!!

You mean you want the whole place, but Guy will get it! Wink

Actually, you might be able to share with him. He'd have the gardens and kitchen rights, you could have the rest. But I'm still gonna have that print room when you're not looking!

What do you mean he will have "rights" Griffin?? He is in the same place as me every minute!

I will be the one with "rights" to share with him more likely.......

OK, you can have the print room, but you have to share occasionally (or I won't let you cuddle Guy Wink ).

BTW..... Have heard from Donna and they are here!!!!!!!! Seem to be enjoying themselves. Will get all the gossip about tonights dinner, and tomorrows as well, from her when I see them monday evening.

I love the spare sparse way that the rooms in the Maison C. B&B are furnished. Is that a usual French style? For some reason I expected more stuff in the rooms! English B&B pics are full of doilies and crockery, it seems.
I remember a room in a movie, "The Swimming Pool" (cool cool movie)-- it was a bare bedroom, one blowing curtain, one plain crucifix over the one plain bed. But not austere, it was very attractive instead. (Of course it was in the south of France, blazing sun, Charlotte Rampling)
I can't stand a bare wall in my own crammed-with-kitsch space, but I sure am attracted to that peaceful charming decor-on-a-diet. Wish I could simplify!

Meeting report time......

Well, met Donna and her husband last night. What a charming, fun, lovely, interesting couple.

They came to us for an aperitif before teh restaurant, and met Guy la Griffe... who thought they were wonderful. He was spoilt with cat treats and toys - which he promptly played with to our delight.

We had dinner at a local little place here in Montmartre called "La Divette du Moulin". It is a family owned resto and does a sort of fusion cuisine. French, with a french island twist. I don't think we stopped talking the whole time!

Afterwards we walked along rue Lepic and I showed Donna a few of the places that are mentioned in teh forums.

Will not tell all, as need to leave something for Donna to say. Must gloat and say that I do have one of the famous "Stollen de Donna" in my fridge waiting for afternoon tea time though......... Wink Am I a happy girl or what!

Might get to see them again before they leave. Fingers crossed.

BTW, Griffin, they are off to the cousins place today. I did ask if I could tag along in the backpack and just sort of be left behind accidentally on purpose..... no go. They are trying to figure out how they can have the place themselves, so you and I have no luck. Laughing

Hurrah for Guy La Griffe! Very Happy

Not going? But... but... Crying or Very sad ... sob, sniff! Debs, our time will come! Of course, we could always try moving into the Palais de Versailles when they aren't looking!!
