Other things to note

The gîte is beautiful. The huge garden the lake the little forest (sous-bois), birds singing, the fresh air ... the profil pictures don't do justice. It's 20x better. Karen and John are welcoming and very nice. They create a sweet home and give a good energy at this place. Breakfast service is good. I liked the little details how they made their place, the decorations, or even how the table was set for breakfast or in the room for our convenience. You can tell they like to have people over and make sure their guests feel welcome. And their dog is adorable :) Totally recommend their gîte Thank you again. Our weekend there was so pleasant.

The perfect stop for us on our way from Brittany to Paris! We felt so welcomed by Karen and John as soon as we arrived, and were filled with a delicious and generous home-cooked meal! There is a cozy living room TV space downstairs, and a large comfortable bedroom upstairs where we slept very soundly in the quiet of the countryside. We love the beautiful and peaceful views of the pond and trees – just the calm and quiet we were looking for! Karen and John welcomed us into the next day with a nourishing breakfast. Karen and John's kindness, warmth, care for details, and generosity refreshed us for our lovely winding drive to nearby Chartres Cathedral. We would gladly return!

Lieu exceptionel avec son étang privé (réservé pour la pêche à la trés grosse carpe). Maison pleine de charme avec un gîte très confortable au milieu de la campagne. Karen et john ne parlent pas encore bien le français mais la très chaleureuse énergie qu'ils dégagent valent bien quelques petits efforts. Nous avons passer un très agréable séjour grâce à eux. Possibilité de petit déjeuné ou diner anglais sur demande.

Karen et John sont adorables, et vraiment à l'écoute de nos moindres besoins (à condition de savoir parler anglais, car ils ne parlent que très peu le français). La longère est magnifique, et conforme aux photos, le domaine bien plus vaste que ce que l'on peut imaginer, et le lac vraiment charmant. Nous avons été impressionnés par la paisibilité du lieu, et avons dormi comme des loirs. La literie est très bonne, la salle de bain contient douche et baignoire, et la télé fonctionne. Enfin, le petit déjeuner qui est servi est copieux, les oeufs cuits parfaitement et le café délicieux! Bref, c'est une très bonne adresse, et nous reviendrons à coup sûr! Karen and John are lovely, and really listening to our every need. The farmhouse is magnificent, and conforms to the photos, the area much larger than can be imagined, and the lake really charming. We were impressed by the peacefulness of the place, and slept very well. The bedding is very good, the bathroom contains shower and tub, and the TV works. Finally, the breakfast that is served is plentiful, the eggs cooked perfectly and the coffee delicious! In short, it is a very good address, and we will definitely come back!
