Room 16

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

Every room or suite at Le Quartier Français has been decorated with individual flair, and every abode has something unique to it.

We think one of the many reasons Room 16 is special, is for its private courtyard. The tranquil space is just the spot to enjoy a morning cup of tea, or indeed a Nespresso. Or a glass of wine at night while gazing at the stars…

The Auberge offers nine en-suite Auberge Rooms, three Grande Rooms, three Petite Garden Suites and two deluxe Auberge Suites (with private pools), which open onto a rose-filled central courtyard and swimming pool. For the ultimate in luxury, there are four state-of-the-art suites, The Four Quarters, overlooking a private pool and sun-splashed deck.

This soufflé!

Bread and Wine have knocked our socks off! There’s a new dish on the dessert list, and it’s a dream. The official description? Prune soufflé with prune & Armagnac ice cream… The unofficial? Wow, just, wow.

What do you do with this?

And eat!

And eat!

A big thank you to our hand model, Lady Fizz of Môreson – who says to drink the Solitare MCC with the dessert, as it ‘brings out the biscuit-y flavours’ in the bubbly.

Five ways to warm up at LQF this autumn

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

There’s a cold snap in the air… so why not snap your fingers and wish yourself to Le Quartier Français, we have a variety of  ways to warm you right up.

1. Pop into B.gorgeous and get a wash-and-blow in a relaxed and beautiful atmosphere—you may as well take advantage of the foot soak that comes with the pedicure too.

2. Sit by the fireside in the Lounge Bar with a cup of Lady Bonin Tea.

3. Cuddle under blankets in your own private garden in one of our suites, while gazing up at the stars in the clear country sky.

4. Grab a colourful casserole dish from our Le Creuset pop-up shop and cook something hearty at home.

5. Indulge in a hot breakfast in The Garden Room, ensconced in a cosy nook.
