My parents-in-law treated us to a weekend trip to Chassepierre last week. Situated in the Belgian Ardennes, Chassepierre is bordered in the East by the river Semois and in the south by France. The name originates from the Latin casa petrea meaning 'stone house'.
We stayed in the B&B Les Jeannes -- super romantic! We heard nothing but rave reviews about Les Jeannes and we were excited to stay in the colorful little B&B. Les Jeannes is almost like a destination in itself. All the rooms are decorated with paintings and vintage pieces (one room even had a confession booth in it). It's all a bit over the top, but in a good way.
The many paintings in Les Jeannes also inspired a few scenes for my new novel "Frances" and after a late-night brainstorming session with my boyfriend we came up with several other ideas for the book.
Also worth mentioning: the delicious homemade breakfast and dinner made from local produce, the kind owners, and the many cats from Chassepierre (the village has less than 200 inhabitants and I believe I saw more cats than people there).
What's the best (or most original) B&B/hotel you've ever been to? Why was it so special?
