Christmas in Provence. Miraculously, so far so good.
Last weekend, my husband and I decided to take Gracie to the beautiful hotel, La Mirande, in Avignon for a hot chocolate after Christmas shopping and boy, it did not disappoint!
This little hotel is definitely in my top 10 favorite hotels in France. Situated on a narrow little cobblestone street with a view of the Palais de Pape, La Mirande left me gobsmacked.
Formerly a private mansion, as I sat in the sitting room of the hotel with its hand painted wallpaper, all I could think was, “How/who/what do I have to do to get a place like this?” Just kidding, no I’m not.
The hotel was having a Christmas luncheon that was f.a.b.u.l.o.u.s.! Absolutely fabulous. Each room had a buffet with specialty Provençal fare… And plenty of hot spiced wine.
I honestly don’t think I could justly describe the perfection of this hotel so I’m going to let the pictures do the talking…
Happy, joyful and perky little Grace.
AND THERE IS A COOKING SCHOOL ALSO!!!!!
Voila! La Mirande Hotel!
