extraordinary b&b, recently opened in Troyes, in the French Champagne region, is
already receiving rave reviews. The restored property, - Le Jardin de la Cathedrale- built around a courtyard
garden a few steps from the city’s magnificent cathedral, was once the home and
workshop of master glazier Louis-Germain Vincent-Larchier. One of its four suites has windows composed of
15th and 16th century stained glass fragments that he collected.
his workshop, has an 18th century oak
ceiling. I have visited the property but haven't had the chance to overnight there. However, at the time of writing it has received a rare ten out of ten score on Booking.com. It would make an excellent base for exploring this exceptionally beautiful city and its surrounding region.
