Hi ! I just came back yesterday from a marvellous trip my fianc√© offered me for my birthday : we spent 4 days in Bath, near London. We stay in a fantastic place I do recomend for a honeymoon or celebration with a lover : The Royal Crescent, located in the famous crescent built by John Wood-we had John Wood suite by the way,a lovely bedchamber with a fire place and the view on the countryside.The hotel staff was very nice, professional and efficient, ask for Charlotte, she’s perfect !

On the morning of 7th when we woke up, it had snowed a little bit during the night and with the frost, all the countryside was recovered with a fine layer of white, better than a christams set !

You know my taste for spa and the one in the hotel is Georgian style, dark, made of stone and wood, it looks like you’re swimming in a chapel ! I looove it ! Perfect after an afternoon walk where we dicovered the famous roman bath vestiges and the abbey where college boys and girls rehearsed Chritsmas songs for the midnight mass. Magical, I told you !

The restaurant is delicious and the chef deserves one star at Michelin guide, hope he’ll have it soon. I can say we had the best fish and chips !! we ordered room service the last night, we wanted to stay quiet by the fire, looking at “Holidays” movie with Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn. I enjoyed a glass of Pomerol and a plate of english cheeses, my favorite is the Stilton.

The restaurant has a very good french somelier, don’t hesitate to ask his advice, he’s an expert.

The dinner for my birthday was excellent : quails terrine, creamy¬†scallops as I never tasted, lambs, seabass, and a very special chocolate cake made for me , I’m was so happy ! A fairy tale …
