Wow, where to start? Daniel and Hélène are friendly and helpful and getting to know them was a highlight of the stay. I felt right at home. Daniel provided plenty of helpful information about what to do in Provins and where to eat. He also provides a pass that gives free access to a selection of attractions in the village.
The rooms are meticulously decorated, cosy and clean. I stayed in Puss and Boots and the bath is lovely. The house is peaceful and the beds are comfortable. I had a good night's sleep every night with no disturbances. The breakfast was great, with fresh breads, pastries, cereals, jams, coffee, tea, juice and Daniel will cook eggs for you.
The gardens are beautifully kept and it's a pleasure to read a book under a tree in the afternoon. Just up the road is the upper part of Provins, home to the Tower of Caesar and the ramparts. Make sure you visit the rose garden (La Roseraie de Provins) if you like that sort of thing - it's absolutely stunning, especially on a warm sunny day. Take a picnic and some wine and spend the afternoon.
I can't recommend La maison de Stella Cadente highly enough. I can't fault the whole experience and I will remember it forever. I booked it on a whim as a break from my two month stay in Paris and it ended up being the best part of my whole trip. Go during the week if you can because the village is quiet and you'll almost have the place to yourself. Thank you to Daniel and Hélène. I hope to return!
