An Amazing Authentic French Farmhouse Kitchen…My Trip to France Part 2

Did I mention that one of the highlights of my trip was visiting the home of our gracious hosts…

…..and tour guides extraordinaires, Cat and Alain. See Cat’s beautiful blog Sunday Brocantes.

The day was picture perfect….not a cloud in the beautiful blue sky.


Welcome to Rabbit Hill…and the lady of the house…

…..our gracious hostess Cat…in her extraordinary gorgeous kitchen…


Notice the wonderful beams in the ceiling….these spectacular beams are throughout the house.

Can you spy some great bread boards to the right of the stove?…sigh…



As you enter the kitchen you immediately see this wonderful farm table that Cat uses for her food prep.

Her hubby Alain retro fitted the table with a sink.

Look how wonderful the table looks with the fresh vegetables and bread….

…..the bread was just picked up from the local bakery….Oh how I miss the bread in France!!


A beautiful antique chandelier hangs above the table.


Can you just imagine preparing your meal in front of this spectacular view?


To the left of the farm table is an area where Cat stores and displays her beautiful kitchenware.

I know your hearts are just skipping a beat!!!


As you enter the kitchen…to the right you will see a great chalkboard…

…..a show stopping cabinet atop a buffet and one of the corner cabinets that flank the door of the kitchen.

Also notice the great artwork done by her children on top the the chalkboard…so very cute!!


On this buffet was our delectable tarts made by Cat…Apple/Cherry and Pear..they were incredible!


Cat’s incredible French antiques are everywhere… she displays them all in the most beautiful ways.


At the other end of the kitchen…you enter through a doorway into another part of the kitchen….

This room is where they have their their everyday meals…their “breakfast room”

The refrigerator is at the other end of the room.


Did your heart skip another beat???…Now, as you can see…

…..even though most of Cat and Alain’s furnishings are centuries old…these furnishing are well used…

………..every day…as you can see the table is also used for rolling little cars!


The table “pre car” play….:)


Now who would not want to lie on that gorgeous tile floor in the kitchen…guarding the door!

Rabbit Hill Kitchen

And this is where I leave you…as Cat is making final preparations for our amazing lunch…

…..stay tuned for that!!!


It was a most memorable day at Rabbit Hill!!!

Is your heart still skipping a beat???!!!
