3. In pursuit of the white rabbit
Le Domaine des Papeteries, Belle-Île-en-Terre
Imagine an old paper mill, a mansion house with grey shutters nestled deep in a valley, with the sound of birds singing, leaves rustling and the murmur of the River Leguer. Perhaps you’ll sleep in the Secrète room, or in the Lady Mond suite? And if you fall for the rococo chest of drawers or if the pictures in the stairway make eyes at you, you don’t even need to try to resist. Here, everything is for sale, from the headboard that cradled your dreams to the cup you used for breakfast. Humour, fantasy and the unexpected are permanent features here! Those who are really keen will embark on a journey of the collections. Ten or so different areas in the domain are loaded with accumulated treasures. On the 1st floor, you’ll discover a room dedicated to fabric, another to jewellery, and a third to lights. The second floor is the realm of pictures, boxes and small furniture. Are you tempted by glassware? Then head to the outhouse. You’ll find crockery near the chicken house.
Note: you need to stay here to have access to the antique shop.
