Secret Garden in Champagne 

Let history wash over you while staying in this beautifully restored and uber stylish B&B in the heart of Troyes. Tucked away alongside the town’s glorious 13th century Cathedral, famous for its remarkable stained glass, the house has a stunning inner courtyard garden, the perfect place to unwind after a day of sightseeing in this historically important and charming corner of France.

The Location

Located in a car free square in the centre of Troyes, the property is ideally situated for guests to explore the city on foot. Filled with historic and colourful half timbered houses, as well as multiple ornate cathedrals, this is a place that will not disappoint.

At the southern tip of the famous Champagne region, Troyes is the perfect base for day trips to the vineyards. The “Champagne Route” or Cote des Bar region is a 30 minute drive away.

Getting to Troyes is easy. The train ride from Paris is 1 hour, 30 minutes, while the journey by car is approximately 2 hours.

  • the private, dreamy courtyard garden is truly special. Lush and beautifully framed by the historic property, it is the perfect place to relax and quintessentially French
  • the decor throughout the property is eclectic, bold, and luxurious. Modern comforts exist beside antique pieces creating a lovely, colourful atmosphere. Photographs can’t really capture how stunning this house is
  • the ample organic breakfast is top notch – there’s even honey from Laetitia’s own hives. Let the sounds of birds chirping and church bells ring in your day while enjoying your meal
  • the property’s proximity to the Champagne vineyards, 30 minutes north is a major bonus. You’ve also the option of tastings with Laetitia’s brother, who distils his own Prunelle de Troyes, a traditional French liqueur
  • Troyes’ cultural significance makes it a destination in its own right. There are impressive sights on the doorstep, a stand out is the Musee d’Art Moderne – home to pieces by some of the greatest 19th and 20th century masters.
  • each of the five suites have ensuites as well as cozy living rooms and they all have tea and coffee facilities. Laetitia uses the phrase “your stay at home” when talking about the B&B and we think that’s pretty much spot on
  • the beautiful lounge opening to the gardens is a lovely place to have a drink and mingle if you wish, or hide away if you don’t
  • a freshly prepared, organic breakfast, Wifi and parking in a secure, nearby car park are included



Laetitia has been designing gardens and terraces in France for over 20 years and the gardens at Le Jardin de la Cathédrale perfectly display here passion and skill. When she bought this beautiful house her ambition, now fully realised, was to bring back life as well as colour to the space, creating an oasis you can now share.

Jeremy and Jean-Claude: April 2019

This is a truly magical place. The beautiful, historic house has been charmingly renovated, mixing classical style with modern touches with a truly breathtaking result. Every detail has been thought of. The gardens are amazing too. A perfect spot to sit, relax and reconnect with nature and enjoy the stunning views. The wonder doesn’t stop with the building. We have never experienced such warm and heart-felt hospitality as we did at Le Jardin de Cathedrale. From the second we arrived until the moment we left we were made to feel so welcome. The breakfasts, filled with home-made and local organic products were fit for a king. Laetitia and Valery were the perfect hosts, we could not have felt more at home.
