Despite the cold weather, our welcome was warm! Mme Roy greeted and gave us the grand tour, even making sure we had a jar of her lovely home made jam for our breakfast croissants! Having arrived on a Sunday to find all the supermarkets en route closed, she insisted on giving us a bottle of wine from her cellar to go with the dinner we had brought over from home.
Prieure de Rochefort is a beautiful place set in lovely surroundings with walks for the active on the doorstep. Compiègne is only a few minutes away by car with excellent rail connections to Paris Gare du Nord. Do go to Pierrefonds, not just for the chateau but for a visit to Patisserie Bigot for their wonderful macaroons.
Visiting in February was maybe asking for trouble as the weather was really cold and we had to make full use of the heating as well as the wood burner, any future visits will be made in warmer weather!
This property was just what we were looking for, in the country but near to lots of historic sights (chateaus and cathedrals). The apartment was charming, it was as if the owners had just moved out for the week and let us stay, and it was very large, the photos did not do it justice! There are lovely walks around the village, which we took each night. The owners could not have been more helpful, we will definitely be going again in the future.
