About this listing

This description was automatically translated from French using Google Translate and may not be completely accurate.

Private room in a charming guest house in the heart of one of the most beautiful medieval bastides of France, very picturesque.

The space

It is in the Lot et Garonne in the heart of the medieval village of Monflanquin that Colette wished to revive a beautiful authentic residence dating back to the Middle Ages.

Walking along the narrow streets you have this sudden impression of living a page in the history of the thirteenth century ...

For Colette, it was a tremendous adventure to revive these places by creating a House of Hosts that she named "Les Fleurs des Iles". The austere and dark side of the rooms formed by large stone walls gave way to a bright and convivial living space. Heat and shimmering colors that lulled her childhood in Reunion inspired her for the themes of each of the rooms.

Reviews "Petit Futé 2012:" How not to fall under the spell of this house? During a stay in the region, Colette and Jean-Michel (who come from Paris) have cracked for Monflanquin and this house that was for sale. The old stones and the beams are today perfectly enhanced by impeccable restoration and especially a decoration neat and worthy of the most stylish decorating magazines. The five rooms are all named after a flower of the islands and are arranged in function. Petit Futé would have liked to spend a night in "Lotus Flower", a case of love with Asian consonances accented by red and purple tones. Or why not the room "Fleur de Vanille", haven of softness on your cream, white ecru, beige and chocolate ... All the furniture is of the old which has been restored: heathered on the flea markets of the region or inheritance of A loving kinswoman of Asia, is a subtle blend that takes place in these old walls that give an atmosphere of childhood memory. In the summer, breakfast is taken in the small courtyard, one of the doors of which opens onto a "carrérot", a small alley typical of Monflanquin. By the way, why the islands? Colette is from Reunion Island. And it is with all the warmth of a generous heart of the head of a family who likes to gather her family home that you will be welcomed. A beautiful address in this bastide so endearing. "

Articles Dépêche du Midi:
Colette has decided to give life to this authentic house of the bastide and to create guest rooms of character. Originally from the island of Reunion, Colette handles both flavors in her kitchen and colors to decorate her rooms with great taste. But before we got to that point, we had to go through the "works" box, and not the least!

Cutting down walls, putting a beam there to ensure the strength of the private wall ceilings, retrieving old stones, opening a window, a large door, rebuilding electricity, changing some door frames, creating a kitchen Large living room and having a rectangular element just in the middle of the room with worktops, sink, cupboards, like a bar counter around which one could circulate ...

Nothing is impossible when one appeals to the talents of professionals and to noble materials such as stone, marble, wood ... Every effort must be made to preserve the existing heritage: the patio, also stones, giving by a Old door on a caroter, or the interior staircase of wood completely stripped with its beautiful ramp and its cast iron elements renovated by a talented artist, part of the wall of the entrance initially in mash too damaged redone in the old with Period briquettes, safeguarding old wrought iron parts that have easily found a place, not neglecting the wall niches in the stone ... What program it was, that also reflection for the former human resources consultant Colette, Become hostess in her new home 6 months of the year!

The transformation of the original layout of the lower rooms has created a large, bright and friendly living space, allowing guests and holidaymakers to live without discomfort, being able to share a pleasantly prepared breakfast, Attentions for everyone. Upstairs, the 5 bedrooms have names inviting to the dream: "Vanilla flower" (furnished in the colonial style), "Vetiver" (like this plant in the perfume of Réunion), "Orchidée" Could also have been called Elegance), "Jacaranda" (from the name of one of the flamboyants, the trees that brilliantly illuminate the island of Reunion at Christmas time) and "Fleur de Lotus" (the flower of Light with subtle perfume very pleasant). Everything is made to feel good: private bathroom and WC in the air-conditioned rooms which can each accommodate 2 to 3 people with possibility of crib; And Wi-Fi Internet access is available free of charge.

Pour Colette, ce fut une aventure formidable que de faire revivre ces lieux en créant une Maison d'Hôtes qu'elle a nommée "Les Fleurs des Iles". Le côté austère et sombre des pièces formées par de larges murs de pierres a laissé place à un espace de vie lumineux et convivial. Chaleur et couleurs chatoyantes qui ont bercé son enfance à la Réunion l'ont inspirée pour les thèmes de chacune des chambres.
