SPACIOUS 17TH CENTURY STONE HOUSE, 4 BEDROOMS, GREAT CHARM/CHARACTER

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Veuxhaulles sur Aube - Les Pommiers sleeps 2-11

Burgundy/Champagne, tranquil house in quiet village, secluded walled garden

The house is on two floors. From the front courtyard you enter straight into the large kitchen/dining room which has an open fireplace. The old flagstones and beams make it a superb setting for dining in the evening. At the far end is a well-equipped kitchen and the window looks out on to a sunny terrace for outdoor dining. An oak spiral staircase leads up to the splendid sitting room with antique floor-boards and magnificent Burgundian fireplace with wood burner.

The two double bedrooms, one on the ground floor and one on the first floor both have lovely views over the garden. The double downstairs has an ensuite shower room. Next door is a bedroom with two single beds which is currently more suited for children . In between is the downstairs loo. Upstairs the fourth bedroom has twin beds plus a child's bed. A single folding bed and two travel cots are available. The upstairs bathroom has a bath/shower and loo. The garden is an oasis of peace with plenty of shade under the apple trees to disappear with a book or snooze in the hammock. Swing, trampoline, barbecue

The village: Dancevoir is a quiet village set in the Aube valley, with its rolling hills mostly covered with forest. The stream run through the village (children love fishing for tiddlers!) and it is delightful to walk along to the playground or further on to the Auberge where delicious Alsacian meals are served. The house is opposite the church and the quiet is regularly punctuated by the chiming of the hours. The village shop for basic groceries and bread and croissants is only 5 minutes walk.

Activites: The area is due to become a National Park for Forests. There are limitless possibilities for walking and cycling either along the quiet country roads or along forest tracks. Nearby lakes proved plenty of opportunity for swimming and other water sports.

There is a lovely old Pleyel grand piano upstairs in the Salon which is in good condition having been restored. It is available by agreement but is otherwise kept locked.The acoustics are excellent for chamber music.

For those wanting to explore Abbeys and Chateaux there is plenty to see. There are excellent museums nearby including a knife museum at Nogent, La Grande Forge de Buffon (dates from 1768) and la Musee de Chatillonais in nearby Chatillon with a stunning bronze vase. For artists the Renoir museum at Essoye where he spent his last years is a must. The magnificent cities of Troyes, Dijon and Beaune make a good days outing. The daily market at Troyes is excellent for food and local produce.

Alternatively sample the wines in the local vineyards where the 'Cremant' (similar to Champagne but much cheaper) shouldn't be missed! For those who must have Champagne the route du champagne is les than an hours drive away.

About Nicola Jackman

Nicola is a Newzealander, Nick was born in StAlbans. We live in Twickenham and have two daughters currently at college/university. We are both musicians and love gardening and walking/cycling.Nick has a passion for apples.

Nicola Jackman purchased this house in 2010

Why Nicola Jackman chose Veuxhaulles sur Aube

We bought the house in a completely unplanned way having received an email about it being for sale from the previous owner. We totally fell in love with the house with its huge fireplaces and beams and the peaceful garden with apple trees. Nicola loves the open spaces in France which remind her of Newzealand.

What makes this house unique

It is the peace and quiet we love, being able to sit in the sunny courtyard even in October and eat breakfast in the sunshine.You can often hear the sound of nuthatches and woodpeckers. The area is perfect for walking and cycling because the roads and tracks are so free from traffic. we love the cycle to the next village (Lignerolles) where there is a great picnic spot by the river.

Lovely Houser in Authentic Setting

  • 5 out of 5
Les Pommiers is a beautiful old house which has kept its charm and demeanor while at the same time featuring up to date comforts. Everything rings true, from the graveled front courtyard, to the main room with kitchen and fireplace, the upstairs salon, the bedrooms and finally the huge, walled garden in the back. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing. A mere five minutes walk will take one to open fields in one direction and to the little shop and bar in the other. We had a wonderful stay in early October, with something for everyone and apples for all.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fantastic weeks stay here at Les Pommiers, the house is immaculate, very spacious and comfortable with lots of amenities for all the family. The village is lovely with a shop/bar which sells lovely bread and croissants, amongst other items. There is also a lovely restaurant in the village, which was open weekends. The location is very good,it is on the Route de Cremant and about an hour and half from Chablis.
The owner is very helpful with any queries. We cannot wait to return.

Just perfect, very romantic.

  • 5 out of 5
Dancevoir is a beautiful village within easy reach of Calais, our journey took less than five hours with one stop, taking us along smooth roads with no hold ups.
The House was everything and more than I anticipated, lovely wide oak floor boards, and beamed ceilings made from huge timbers. One evening we lit the wood burning stove with logs provided, this gave the whole house a warm romantic feel.

My Wife and I went on our own which was a bit like a second honeymoon, the shops are well stocked with a delightful selection of meat shellfish and wine. Alternatively there are nice restaurants within easy reach, with a typical meal for two costing 50 Euros’.

Although we went on our own the house would be ideal for a family, the garden is completely enclosed by walls where children could play on the swing and trampoline.

The most tranquil holiday ever, so peaceful. Paul & Jane – Thame.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind comments. We have worked hard over the past year to improve the furnishings in the house and replaced the cooker and fridge. We have also enjoyed working in the garden planting fruit trees, herbs and a new wild garden. It is lovely to know things are appreciated.

Cosy Dreams

  • 5 out of 5
Escaping Christmas and Ney Years in Germany. The perfect house! We came in and felt at home right away. It was exactly how we imagined it in our dreams.
Cosy, warm and charming. We felt like the "Earl of Dancevoir". Fireplace, Grand Piano and a sleeping village.
Perfect relaxation and french food. What more do you need?
We'll defenately come back in Summertime to also enjoy the beautyful garden. We all can't wait to come back!

Wish, wish, wish...

The area is superb for walking and cycling on the quiet roads and forest tracks. If you have never visited eastern France you will be amazed by the lack of traffic which means it is safe for the whole family to cycle. If you love wild flowers, orchids, birds and soft undulating hills and valleys you will not be disappointed. There is a wonderful serene silence in the forests which make up a significant part of the landscape. In the summer there are good opportunities to swim in either lakes or swimming holes in the nearby rivers.

As well as enjoying the countryside there are splendid old towns such as Langres with it's fortifications, Chattillon sur Seine which has a beautiful hilltop church where St Benedict had a chapel.

Of course wine is important and there are nearby vineyards where you should not miss tasting the local 'cremant' which cannot be called champagne but drinks very easily at a fraction of the cost! The house is close to the Champagne region so makes a good base for visiting the Champagne trail.
