A very nice place I’m pleased to share with you today : la Maison de Marguerite which propose bed and breakfast, cottages and host table in Drôme provencale, in the baronnies region.
Sophie et David, the owners, purchased the property a few months ago and renovated it with great taste in just a few months. The result is GREAT. La Maison de Marguerite is a guest house where you feel at ease.
We stayed in La Bergerie, a lovely 2 bedrooms cottage designed as a cocoon and renovated with beautiful materials : an independant terrace, view on the garden : it was so nice !!
We enjoyed Sophie’s good breakfasts, you know, those where you eat three times more than a regular breakfast ! Because it’s nice, tasty, and there’s nothing to do !…
And the swimming-pool….the pool and its view on the hills…so big that there is enough place for everyone. And that’s great, because I may look like a diva to you, but I think it’s important in a guest house : it’s not nice when you’re 15 people swimming in a tiny pool.
This guest house is located in Montbrun les Bains classified among the most beautiful villages in France, and if you like nature, lavender fields, Provence hills, you will feel good here ! And if the weather is bad, well you can enjoy the baths !
My favorites of the week-end in Drôme provencale :
I wanted to go to the O des Sources restaurant, which is located in Montbrun as well, and which has very good reviews for both settings and cooking, but I finally canceled because it’s a gourmet restaurant, and I was afraid that my daughters find it boring and too long and so I wouldn’t have enjoyed it either… but it’s on my to-do list for a next stay !
A nice discovery : creperie Billig in Montbrun that Sophie recommended me. Here no frills : you seat on plastic chairs on a place without much charm, but reception is very nice and food is good : not only galettes and crepes ! Fresh, homemade, I recommend !
If it’s on your way, you should make a stop at la Fontaine Minérale in Pont-de-Barret (Drôme) : a very original place with a guinguette spirit which organizes aperitifs, theater, and co…. food is very good ! Only downside : the price of the child menu : quite basic and stingy (no drink included, and a mini ice ball as a dessert) for 13 euros ! Apart from this, go for it !
