If you are Canadian architect Sanjit Manku and French designer Patrick Jouin, you create an outstanding hotel, retreat and restaurant. One catch…the project stipulated that none of the original white limestone could be disturbed. Since we are too busy to skirt off to France this week, thought we’d do a little arm chair traveling.

Happy Sunday!

Each of the 54 rooms is unique.  This one will do just fine for me.
