It was very comfortable, easy to find and so nice to be right in the heart of the town. Roger and his wife are great hosts and made us feel very welcome. We are looking forward to staying next time we are visiting the forest. Thank you for having us. Catherine, Tom & Katie

Plenty of bathrooms and everything is very well furnished. We had two families (10 people) staying with children aged from 2 to 15. We fitted in very comfortably, and found the two reception rooms downstairs to be very useful. Roinville is in a quiet area but within easy reach of Paris and many other towns and attractions. We loved Chartres and the Base de Loisirs in Etampes. Chrystel is very helpful and we are very happy to recommend this fantastic home.
