We stayed for 10 nights in September for a relaxing holiday with our Son. Chantal & Thierry were very welcoming even though we had got stuck in traffic through Paris & arrived much later than planned.The gite is absolutely perfect & very comfortable, it felt like home for 10 nights. The pool was better than we ever could have imagined, even on slightly chillier days it was very warm & lovely to use. Our son is only 3 and we were able to find lots to do in the area, we would recommend the Grande Aquarium and the safari train, both were fab! Thank you Chantal & Thierry, we had the most relaxing holiday!
If you want something special and unusual yet with all the comforts of the less unique destinations, then this is the place for you. So quiet, peaceful and beautiful. After a hectic year this was just what the doctor ordered. The abbey is simply beautiful. The restoration been done is just amazing. The sunset from the top of the tower is indescribable. Or just watch the deer come out of the nearby forest at dusk. Almost doesn't sound real yet this is what we experienced.
The gite is quite modern inside with everything you could want yet retaining the charm of an old cottage.
Kichen is very well equipped with everything you could need. Bathroom is lovely, bed very comfortable. Swimming pool right on the doorstep. My favourite part though is your own private garden with apple and pear trees that Marc (the owner) encourages you to make the most of.
Marc and Christine are lovely hosts. Marc spent over an hour with a map telling us about all the best local restaurants and things to see. On the first morning he brought us in his restored Belgian army jeep to the local bakery and gave us a tour on the way back of the area. We also enjoyed a very detailed tour with all the history of the abbey and Yul Brynner connection. We also enjoyed some aperitifs on our last night.
I know we shall return and would highly recommend this to anybody looking for a unique and peaceful holiday experience.
