Le Plessis-Vannon was everything we expected and more, it was adorable. We didn't want for anything, everything you could think of in a home was there to make it a perfect stay. Whether I sat in the house, in the garden or around the pool it all had a sumptuous feel. The climate was in the 30's, perfect for me, but shade could be found in various locations in the garden for those wishing it. Of course there is a the pool too which was ideally heated and we had good fun. A beer in the garden playing boules in the afternoon, followed by a bike ride after dinner was perfect. Chantal and Jean Pierre were lovely and couldn't do enough for us to make our stay the best it could be. Thank you Chantal and Jean Pierre, you should be very proud of yourselves, the house is stunning.

The description is accurate but we have 2 reservations, neither very serious. First, while the 3 bedrooms are spacious there's a lack of comfortable sitting facilities. Second, the outside area is rather unkempt - the bushes need trimming & weeds cleared. The property is well equipped for cooking and was very clean on our arrival. The owners are very helpful but not intrusive, and Olivier speaks good English. Street parking is handy, but we prefered to use a small carpark about 100 yards away. The town is better than described with lots of seating on the river banks and a lot of boat traffic through the lock. We used the cafe "Les 2 Terasses" & the restaurants Olivier recommended. Very good value for money.
