It was our family travel in Moselle and we stayed in Suite Bukina for five nights in August. The two young kids (2y and 5y) enjoyed the farm very much. Everyday we went to see calves and milk cows. It was great fun for the kids to learn the milking and to see many huge tractors. They even took a ride with André. Jocelyn and André are patient and kind to children although my kids do not speak French at all. Moreover there is a playground next to the church. Flopré is definitely a perfect place for family travel with young kids when you want to enjoy the countryside and the nature.
Jocelyn and André prepared one sofa bed and one baby cot for the two children. Therefore they slept sound in a safe place. Suite Bukina is so spacious (50m2 if I am right) that we do not feel any pressure due to the two extra beds. The terrace is as wonderful as the suite. It was very pleasant to have our dinner on the terrace. What impressed us (two adults) the most in the room is hammam!
In France we may not forget to mention the good food. Our breakfast was taken place in the living room surrounded by authentic Lorraine furniture. On table we had fresh milk from the farm and four homemade jams. Tea, coffee, cheese and two kinds of bread, even homemade cake, were offered as well. It was tasty and cozy breakfast time.
The first evening we arrived was Sunday. Therefore we had booked table d'hôte as we did not have to look for food with two young kids in the countryside on Sunday evening. We had aperitif in the garden where we were served canapés with sausage, paté, jamon made from home raised pig; then beetroot mousse salad, tomato with goat cheese salad (I hate goat cheese but I ate all!), courgette soup, guinea fowl with pumpkin and mushroom, four local cheeses, cheese cake and chocolate ice cream, mirabelle liqueur. Many ingredients are from the farm and made by Jocelyn and André. It was very delicious. Strongly recommend the table d'hôte!
Thanks to the kindness of Jocelyn and André, they moved the meal location from the living room to the garden. So we passed most of the dinner time in the garden and the two kids played in the sandpit.
