Le Coq Floral = Delightful Baguio Staycation

Doing a double take in deja vu with the photo below?

2016-05-26-27 Baguio Le Coq Floral P3+1

Hello from downstairs. *hihi

I don’t blame you; it does look a bit like our photo at Le Coq Bleu. (In the living room, looking up at the cam, all smiles.) In fact, this sala is at the homestay … the new branch of it though, named Le Coq Floral. \m/

UPDATE 12/21/2016: Le Coq Floral, a touch of Provence in the City of Pines. See the home stay’s new look here.

Being regular visitors at the blue French cottage, we jumped at the chance to see as well as experience Le Coq Bleu II, when Ms. C invited X+1 for a staycation. *jump jump

The Studio

Just like the blue house, the floral branch is also a home stay, When you book your accommodations in places like these, you’re in for a first hand experience living with a local family.

Photo op in all the roooooms! =b

Getting to our room for the night, I was reminded of the place we stayed at when we were in Batanes. Like one big happy family, we all were; with the home owners and the other tourists hanging out at the living room and eating our meals together in the dining room. =)

The Rose room =)

Okay, back to our fair city. *hihi As it is with the house in Gulf View, Le Coq Floral is also located away from the hustle and bustle. There are more rooms to choose from here: The Leaf room, the Rose room, the Lavender room, the attic, and the studio. Barbecues can also be done in the wide area outside the studio. (I can see it now; with friends, family, how enjoyable that would be!) Each room is limited to two to three people and if you’re on vacation with a big group, the house can accommodate up to 13 people.

Good morning from the Leaf room (master bedroom), Le Coq Flora! \m/

Breakfast at Le Coq Floral

The morning after, we woke up to birds singing … their lungs out, even =)) , the sun streaming through the windows, and when we opened the doors to the balcony, the room quickly filled up with cool and fresh morning air.

All rooms come with a healthful scrumptious breakfast, lovingly prepared by Chef B, so you can start your day off right … energized for touring around the City of Pines or  just lazing about in this beautiful Baguio home. =b

The breakfast spread

For our breakfast, (the menu changes by the day) we nudged our tummies to wake with fresh yogurt (from the Baguio Dairy Farm) topped with strawberry coulis. When we were good and ready,  whole-wheat-oats pancakes with maple syrup were also ready for the taking. Oh my, were those thick and filling. ^^,

2016-05-26-27 breakfasting at Baguio Le Coq Floral

Lots and lots of maple syrup is the way I like it. *heehaha

Completing the breakfast spread were ripe mangoes, glasses of orange juice and brewed coffee. (Tea was my hot drink then. *hee)

Breakfast, up close.

Wait, hold on there, I’m not done yet. There’s more!

Make your reservation a week in advance and you and your foodie lovies can have lunch or dinner at the Floral homestay.

2016-05-26-27 Baguio Le Coq Floral lamb tagine

Lamb tagine with couscous ^^,

They have lots to offer  such as lamb steak, moussaka, filet of fish, ragout topped on pasta, special orders like salt baked chicken, and lamb tagine with … no, that’s not rice, that’s couscous (the newest addition to the menu) and more. (“,)

2016-05-26-27 Baguio Le Coq Floral dining

Scintillating conversation over dinner between caretaker Ms. C and my foodie posse, just like one big happy family. (My brother, feeling tipsy from the Moscato? That sure was a fun drink; thanks for the intro to it, Chef Babes.)

Having picked what you’d like for mains, you already have three other courses together with that: Soup for starters, salad as a palate cleanser, and dessert with coffee, that you can put a dash or two (… or three) of Amaretto on as digestif. =D

2016-05-26-27 Baguio Le Coq Floral soup starters and salad digestif

Potato soup (tasted like the tubers were boiled in beef broth, like bulalo. Weee! #happydance since this is the way I like to eat bulalo anyway; with lots of potatoes mashed up in the soup.) for starters and salad in preparation for dessert. Nyum!

While all desserts I’ve tried at the home stay have been heaven (choco bavarian pie *nomnomnom), I’m always extra giddy with excitement when Ms. C’s ice cream is the dessert of the day. She puts the ‘cream’ in ice cream, I tell you. And the flavors she experiments with, tres special (lemon, not sorbet-like; apple cinnamon, blueberry cheesecake). (This one we had after the lamb dinner was rum raisin. Didn’t I tell you? S-P-E-C-I-A-L.)

Rum raisin home made ice cream. (“,)

Two days of a relaxing time; just hanging around the new French home, taking photos here and there, of this or that little knickknack, playing with the dogs, and conversations with Ms. Tita C and Chef Tito B, we didn’t want to leave. (More photos around the homestay? Here, here.)

UPDATE 12/21/2016: Le Coq Floral, a touch of Provence in the City of Pines. See the home stay’s new look here.

2016-05-26-27 hanging out at Baguio Le Coq Floral living room

We’ve parked our butts in the living room and we don’t want to leave. *hee

X marks Le Coq Floral for a wonderful staycation/vacation … and naturally, good food, in Baguio.

Food: 4 treasure chests

Service: 5 treasure chests Waited on hand and foot, maaan!

Ambiance: 4 treasure chests in comparison to what I have in mind for the full-of-character-and-personality Le Coq Bleu’s 5 treasure chests as Ms. C is still in the midst of giving this place a little bit more flare. (So many little trinkets to find in Japan surplus, ukay-ukay and antique stores, so little time. =)) )

Price: (I’m rating the food cost here.) 3 treasure chests

    Le Coq Floral really looks like a nice place for a staycation, Xine. Do you know the rates? Thank you.

    • XiNE says :

      Hello, Janna! Really nice at Le Coq Floral. We enjoyed our stay immensely. Oh, I have a ballpark idea about the rates but I think it would be better if you got it straight from the horse’s mouth. I do hope that you have a memorable stay at Le Coq Floral homestay whenever it is you make a booking for it! (“,)
