We stopped at Les Essart de Roi for 3 days as we were working our way back through France after a week in the Alpes. The house was deceptively spacious with plenty of space for our family of 5 (my wide and I, our two children aged 16 and 18 and my mum). We found it a great location for breaking our journey and were able to visit Versailles and Ramboulliet, both of which were great. You could easily use this as a base to explore Paris is you didn't want to stop in the city as there is a train station within 10 minutes walk of the property. The village has all the usual facilities, bakes, butchers, market, supermarket. Would definitely recommend.
We had a wonderful stay but would point out that several items would have made our stay outstanding. Lack of soap and hand towel in the downstairs toilet, lack of cleaning clothes in the kitchen for wiping down the surtaces, lack of hair dryer. The decor and furniture was outstanding. The deer in the field was a bonus.
The concept of having to provide a 500€ returnable deposit will add considerable increase in costs due to the currency charge added by credit companies. I have never had to do this with Airbnb, even with lettings covering considerable greater initial expenditure. If this is HomeAway policy I will be very wary in future.
