The cottage is comfortable, clean and very well equipped, including most things you'd need for cooking and a good set of outdoor furniture. The garden is huge and almost always in sun - we enjoyed relaxing there with a book and walking around the lake at the bottom of the garden. It was so peaceful and beautiful. Be aware that there are no shops *at all* in the vicinity, but as long as you are prepared with your food shopping it's a wonderful little pocket of calm. The area is also within reach of places of historical and cultural interest - we were able to visit Fontainebleau, Versailles, Provins and Reims relatively easily. Alain had a tendency to drop by unannounced, which was a bit disconcerting - once he came in the back door without warning and just sat on the sofa while we were making dinner - but apart from that Michele was a responsive, helpful host and it was clear they were ready to help if necessary. This place is very highly recommended.

Fantastic stay, in this lovely little cottage in the most picturesque of settings. Michele and Alain made us feel so welcome, offering really useful information on the area and some of the most delicious champagne we had on our trip. We couldn't recommend them more, thank you both for your hospitality.

Le cottage est à une distance parfaite de Paris pour une échappée de quelques jours avec enfants. Michèle et Alain sont très accueillants et soucieux de notre bien être (jeux supplémentaires pour enfant, salade bio...!). Le cadre est paisible, vue sur l'étang, balançoire, balade au bord de l'eau. Un grand merci pour votre accueil, nous reviendrons avec plaisir !

After living in several countries, my French husband and I (American) returned to the home his family has lived in for several generations. The cottages are in the same hamlet, so we can provide advice on what to do in the region or in Paris.
