La Petite Maison
Our slice of France

It's not a unique concept at all and one that many share – to own your own little slice of France. Over the years we have had many discussions and debates whether we would rather spend our time in Paris or country France. As much as we adore Paris, we are incredibly drawn to the markets, season, scenery, food and wine of country France, more specifically, Burgundy.

The Perfect Day

Our perfect day at our own country abode would look something like this… It would start with a visit to one of the many village markets to load our basket full of seasonal fruit and vegetables, locally grown meat and fresh artisanal goats cheese. If we're lucky, there'll be a travelling baker to provide us with fresh bread and pastries. A bunch of pretty flowers will complete our shop.

If it's Kate's lucky day, we'll pass a pop-up brocante or antique shop where we'll hunt for a treasure for the house.

Once back at La Petite Maison, Nathan will head to the kitchen with our market bounty to start preparing our long, leisurely lunch. Kate will set our rustic outdoor table fashioned from doors from one of our barns with antique china and the just bought flowers and maybe that newly acquired treasure from the brocante.

Lunch starts with a bottle of local sparkling wine or a crisp, dry rosé to accompany the saucisson, rillette and pâté en croute purchased from the market. The roasted Bresse chicken will be the star of the table, surrounded by an heirloom tomato salad and greens simply dressed with a shallot vinaigrette. A crusty baguette will be used to soak up the delicious juices.

Fresh strawberries and an artisanal small batch goats cheese is all we need for dessert before we laze away the afternoon in the shade of one of our many trees.
