  • A short stop by the former home of the Archbishop of Cambrais in the 15th century, what do you think? Relax, he has not lived there since a lease! From now on, it is the Maison Mathilde, the last baby of Ingrid and Michel. When we went to Valenciennes in love, we were invited to this old mansion which has kept all its character but that the owners have renovated and re-decorated in a contemporary but tasteful way (I say "but" because sometimes it happens that modernity and design are a little cold or without personality, which is far from the case here). Located in the heart of Old Valenciennes (1 rue du Beguinage) and overlooking the Basilica of Notre-Dame du Saint-Cordon, surrounded by greenery and sheltered from view, the Mathilde House is without a doubt The Place To Be if you want to spend a quiet night, not far from the center of Valenciennes. For my part, I slept in the room "Mathilde" (which is the name of the daughter of the owners, hence the name of the place), that "in front of the Babar" tells us Ingrid, the boss. We climb a floor (even the stairs sends heavy!), Take a few steps and open the door of the room ... We had just crossed the threshold that we push a "Wow! We will be fine here! "Or assimilated expression that meant we were going to have a good time (and that the room was beautiful). We go downstairs, drink with the owners at the weekend well deserved, then leave for the evening in the city center. And indeed, after a good meal in the center, we were in a hurry to return to enjoy this little moment of luxury. Even if we are simple people, we also like comfort, let's face it! The king-size bed reaches out to us, but the bath also bright ... We do not know what to choose and we say that it is not every day that we can fit in a bathtub (the precise wording that we measure respectively 1m93 and 1m70 ...) so we enjoy a good bath before sleep, we laugh almost two hours and we finally decided to sleep. The market is waiting for us the next day, as well as the breakfast of Maison Mathilde (I do not know you but we are always looking forward to discovering breakfast when we stay elsewhere than at home). In short, the night was short but ample enough to rest and enjoy this magical home ... I can only recommend this place (if it was not the case, I will not talk about it at the same time ...) and if you decide to follow my recommendations, drink a Spritz to my health with Ingrid and Michel, and greet them on my behalf.
