Summer is almost here and I know I’ll be renting a little cottage by the sea, but if I could, I would be packing my bags to go to this charming French cottage.
Situated only ten km south of Strasbourg, France, next to a forest in the heart of a typical Alsatian village, this rental French cottage seems to be the perfect place to enjoy a quiet weekend, relax and visit some beautiful small towns near by, such as Obernai, Boersch and be enchanted by the local little shops and fabulous restaurants.
Questsche et Mirabelle, as it’s called, is a place I’ll keep in my memory and hope to visit someday.
You can’t help but feel completely at ease and welcomed in this cottage.
A place to display loved items.
Lovely and delicate.
The cottage has a really beautiful and unique decor. I love the idea of hanging crystal balls on the chandelier.
You’ll find a beautiful tiled stove in the dining room, typical of traditional Alsatian houses. The heart on the wall is made of driftwood.
The cottage works as a bed & breakfast and this room (my favorite) is rented for 105 €/night.
I wish my head was resting on those fluffy pillows at this moment…
Could it be any more perfect?
Now and Then
The interior designer mixed some interesting elements in this room.
Simplicity is key. The painted wooden furniture and antique mirror accentuates the decor.
I really like the way they painted the wall; an easy and affordable way to bring interest to any room.
The clawfoot tub is on a small platform protected by a linen curtain. Unique and romantic.
I really adore this place! I could spend a long time in this here, just enjoying the region, the stunning decor and learning French. Wouldn’t that be dreamy?
Let’s book a weekend in this place? Who is with me? 🙂
I’m feeling so good today! I haven’t changed my mattress yet, but I finally could have a good night of sleep. I think it’s because I was so tired that I fell asleep in a flash. My kids had a playdate with their best friend and it was busy around here! We made some pizza and baked a chocolate cake together. I even had energy to make my favorite meal for dinner: gnocchi. It was a “carbonanza” around here, but boy, we had a fun day!
Sometimes, all we need is to remember how fun it was to be a child. Do you remember that feeling of being able to do anything just because you were you? Do you remember how much you believed you were able to become anything you wanted to be? Do you remember all the dreams? All the laughter? All the funny moments you could find in every day you lived?
We mature, life comes and breaks our innocent heart and slowly we start to forget to laugh often.
We really need to allow our hearts to remember how beautiful life can be, when we see life as we did when we were kids. We can’t fix innocence once broken, but we can choose to look at our day with more humor, with a better mood and with a lighter spirit.
Bring good childhood memories throught your life and you’ll always be true to yourself. Somehow, we knew ourselves better when we were kids because the world hadn’t influenced our hearts just yet.
Bring yourself back and smile. You’re precious.
