The furnishings and housekeeping were exemplary as were the little touches of milk, tea and brioche. It was, frankly, better than we either expected or hoped and our stay was memorable. Although the locality was very rural and quiet the bustle of Paris was an easy train ride away and we were in the Orsay within an hour of leaving the cottage. There is a huge hypermarket close by but not too many restaurants. All in all a very happy experience and we would be delighted to return.

Comfortable beds, excellent outdoor space, free lock-up garage for cars 75 yards away, rooms nicely separated from each other with separate bathrooms and a very friendly host. If we were in the area we would definitely stay here again.
