Think of this as a trip to the French countryside, but, like, in the Philippines. Le Coq Bleu stands out at Suello Village in Baguio because of its chic rustic interiors and inherent French character. Suffice it to say, this isn't your run-of-the-mill Airbnb. It feels like a chateau in Southern France or a random home in a village by the Riviera (that old-world charm is something else, isn't it?).
The estate itself is taken care of by French immigrant Chantal Pangilinan, who is more than happy to share glimpses of the culture she grew up with with her guests. Surrounded by lush greens, Le Coq Bleu's main attraction is its loft, where we can find the living and dining space, as well as the master's bedroom above it. This area is the place's primary draw. Right when you first step in, you are treated to paintings and knick-knacks the proud owner has collected over the years.
The interior itself is accentuated by a healthy blend of Victorianesque furniture, mid-century pieces, representational art, some sculptures, and a whole lot of blues. The home is also made from recycled materials, believe it or not.
