Stunning new French b&b

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. 

Another, once his workshop,  has an 18th century oak ceiling. I have visited the property but haven't had the chance to overnight there.
