We had a lovely week in Vermenton which we used as a stop off on the way to Cannes. The property is incredibly pretty sitting on the bank of a mill pond at the top of which is a lovely pool which we made good use of during our stay. The property is very well equipped and a comfortable relaxing space to be in. The property is a short walk away from the river and the canal, which were kayaking opportunities for our son who even managed to kayak in the mill pond. There is a good walk/cycle path along the canal to Accolay The Atac supermarket is a 15min walk away and supplied everything that you might need. We visited some pretty villages and towns including Chablis and Auxerre, During our visit we saw an abundance of wildlife, Kingfishers, water vole and also what I believed may have been an otter!
My husband and I spent a week at this charming house and celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with our parents, children and grandchildren, along with our dog. There were ten adults and four children ranging from one to five years old. We were warmly greeted by Christine who showed us round and explained everything. It was useful that there was a downstairs room with bathroom for my Mother who is eighty nine and struggles with stairs. The two rooms upstairs with air conditioning were used by the parents with young children.
It was great having one communal room with lounge and dining room and kitchen, although the most part of our holiday was spent around the pool and on the outside terrace which has its own kitchen. The pool was a great success and enjoyed by all. The hot tub was also a huge hit. There was plenty of seating and play activities, including the table tennis table.
We all had a lovely time and the weather was glorious!
With our young children we had to be highly vigilant given that the pool was not fenced off but with arm bands and swimming aids the children benefited from swimming every day.
Our only slight concern was the extra payment for electricity used over the allowance. We used the air con and heated the hot tub every day during our stay and it was about 65 euros extra, so not too bad!
All in all we had an excellent time staying at the house and we would strongly recommend it. Thank you to Christine and M and Madam Ragot.
