A gorgeous setting for this 18th-century house and courtyard garden in front of the medieval cathedral. Interiors are stunning and colourful; light floods in from large windows in the drawing and dining rooms. Wake up early (the bells!) in suites which will delight and surprise: stained glass windows, incredible light hangings, vast beams, high ceilings and zingy wallpapers and fabrics. Oh, and a gigantic stuffed goose. At breakfast you feast on fresh pastries and bread with butter from Echirey and jams and honey from the Aube. Step outside for wonky half-timbered houses and the whole lovely town. Very special.
