We loved staying at this property. It was very comfortable, clean, modern, nicely decorated and well-equipped. Cêcile is a fabulous host - very helpful and welcoming and speaks excellent English. It was lovely to escape to the tranquility of the countryside as well as having easy access to Paris. A hire car is very useful but not essential if you are a cyclist. We did not realise that in August many Parisians are on holiday and this is when maintenance is done on the train lines so there were closures to alot of the lines and stations.
I would thoroughly recommend staying at this property, great for kids, families, couples.
We had a great time in Versailles. We went to the Palace Gardens on several occasions, for picnics.
We also explored the surrounding areas, going to Giverny to see Monet's house and gardens. We also drove to Chartres to see the Cathedral and we spent 2 separate days in Paris going by train. The station was only a 10 minute walk away.
During our time there we also managed to squeeze in a day trip to Euro Disney, which we enjoyed despite the long queues.
Overall we stayed for 10 days and we found loads to do in and around Versailles to ensure that we did not have any spare time to read the books that we had taken with us.
