Le Coq Bleu is your home away from home. It’s a lovely place to meet the Aunt that you never had – Chantal. And a homestay that will blow you away with how dreamy it looks.
Have you ever seen a house so beautiful you wish you could go and spend a night in one of its rooms? I have. I’ve seen a lot of wonderful houses in magazines that I could only dream of. There was no way I could ever go check each one out because they’re mostly found outside the country and secondly, they’re homes of celebrities and such.
When I first saw a photo of Le Coq Bleu online ( I can’t remember if it was on Facebook or on Airbnb itself when I was browsing through some Baguio accommodation), I was amazed, to say the least. The place looked so beautiful that I knew right then and there I wanted to book it.
I booked Le Coq Bleu as a gift for myself on my birthday. Needless to say, I was ecstatic to go spend the night in such a beautiful and dreamy home.
Le Coq Blue: Our Experience
By the time Ryk and I arrived at Le Coq Blue, our host, Chantal greeted us. She was really nice. It was my first time meeting someone French and staying in a French home. We met her three friendly dogs – Juno, Hestia, and Zeus.
With the approval of Chantal, we brought our little baby boy Noodle (a Boston terrier) with us. He and the three dogs quickly became friends. Hestia thought he was still a puppy and wanted to play with him so much. It was pretty cute watching the dogs play.

Well, anyways, after a quick chat and a few introductions, Chantal showed us the loft (Oh, yeah. I booked the loft). It was so cute and cozy. I loved all the quilts inside as well as the little window. We had a great view of the dining area and the living room AND IT WAS AMAZING! (Capslock for feelings hahaha)
Beside the loft is a mini living room where Ryk and I could hang out. I took tons of photos of the whole house from there. I took a photo of the dining area and the living room and the stairs and the decors and the loft and just EVERYTHING. Pictures can’t compare to how beautiful the house is.
Right then and there, I decided that if I ever make my own house, I’m going to use Le Coq Blue as my inspiration. Needless to say, Ryk loved it, too.
What made the house even more amazing was that everything was made from recycled materials! Wow! The cement was the only thing new.
It’s such a lovely house. Every corner is filled with delightful stuff. And all these little things work to create what Le Coq Blue is all about – a French homestay.
We had such a great time playing with the dogs and chatting with Chantal that we’re planning to book again. Yipee!

How To Get There
Le Coq Bleu is located in Suello Village, Baguio City just 1km from the main highway.
If you’re coming from Manila:
- Ask the bus driver to drop you off at the entrance to Suello Village.
- From there, Le Coq Bleu is just 10 to 15 minutes away by foot.
If you’re coming from the Baguio town center:
- Option 1: Ride a jeep heading to Greenvalley and stop by Suello Village. Then walk to Le Coq Bleu.
- Option 2: Take a taxi and use Google Maps or Waze to direct the driver.
Via Private Car
Just use Waze.
You can’t cook in the house or use the refrigerator. The kitchen is OFF limits. However, there’s free European style breakfast served only from 8AM to 10AM. There’s no rice meal. Expect eggs, fruits, pancakes, and bread.
During our stay, we had yogurt, mango, pancakes and butter, French coffee, juice, homemade marmalade, and pear syrup. Everything’s so delicious. I wanted more! (I’m drooling just thinking about the yogurt and the marmalade.)
Lunch and dinner are also served for a fee. Be sure to let Chantal know one week ahead so she can prepare and so she can send you the menu.
But well, there’s also a nearby restaurant, Sunset View Ridge Residences. It’s just two houses near Le Coq Bleu. We definitely recommend the tinapa rice and pork belly with lettuce. It’s so good. We had these for lunch after we checked out.
Catch the sunset here. It is really beautiful.
