My boyfriend and I took a chance on La Petite France and we're so glad we did. When we drove up we were happy to see that the house is on a quiet side street of the sleepy town of Alberton, PEI.
First, I'll comment on the great cafe that they have beside the B&B :
It is pretty much the only restaurant we found on PEI that had more vegetarian options than meat ones (although they did have a hearty looking grilled ham and cheese).
For dinner we chose to eat there and indulged in a homemade vegetable bisque to start, my honey went with the veggie quiche and I had the onion pie, both came with salad and freshly made dressing. Everything was gourmet quality, freshly cooked and perfectly seasoned, yet not at all pretentious or over done.
We sat outside on the patio with a weighted table cloth and beautifully accented linen and silverware. Hubert, the owner served us with ease and answered all our questions about the food. For dessert we had a (my mouth salivates at the memory) apricot with peach and custard square and a rhubarb yogurt cream mini pie.
The house is great. It's heritage, with fun accents inside like a old fashioned fisherman's rope as a banister to hold onto going up the stairs.
There is a main living room and game room set up for the guests of the B&B. The owners area is in a totally separate area. In our living area there were book lined shelves, a television, multiple couches and a mini fridge.
The bedroom we chose was the Lorraine. It was a decent size for two people with a view of their garden and a private bathroom. Little touches make all the difference, for us it was the wine glasses with the dark chocolate beside the bed...delightful! The bed had a beautiful white, summer light quilt on it, the linen with fresh and crisp and I slept like a rock, so did my better half.
The bathroom was clean and had everything we needed. No tub but a double showerhead.
Breakfast in the morning was great. Homemade bread, chocolate croissants, cheese, eggs, orange juice, breakfast cookies and coffee for days. Hubert even filled up our travel coffee mugs. During breakfast he hung out and answered all the questions we had about the island, made great recommendation and in short, was a fantastic host. I think him and his wife must take turns hosting because she was more behind the scenes, but when we did see her she was friendly.
All in all we loved La Petite France.
