We spent our last 2 touring nights in Louisiana in Chretien Point, and what fun it was. By the time we got there we'd done quite a few tours of plantation houses, and stayed in the guest cottages of a couple. But this time we got to stay in one of the rooms that was on tour during the day, sleep in the antique four-poster etc! Not only that, but we were waited on in the grand reception rooms too. Each evening we were brought mint juleps and little savouries in the first floor drawing room. In the morning we were served a splendid southern breakfast at the huge table in the dining room.
On our first night we were the only guests and, though a staff member stayed downstairs in case of emergencies, we felt we had the whole house to ourselves, and could pretend to be grand Old Southerners.
Because of historical aspects, although we had a private bathroom it wasn't en-suite, but tucked into a cupboard down the hall. Don't worry though - robes are provided.
The staff were unfailingly cheerful, friendly and helpful.
Altogether this was a unique experience, which we will never forget.More
