                                                              Lovely rustic cottage

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              We spent three weeks here and the description is rather accurate. Lydia has stocked the cottage well and even provided small things such as a lettuce spinner and egg cups. The garden is enclosed, which is great if you bring your dog along. It is also private as the fence shields one from views of the main house. The cottage itself is freestanding from the main house and is in a hamlet about 3km's away from the nearest village, Salornay sur Guy. The ceilings upstairs are vaulted which gives a great impression of space. The countryside in this part of France is lush green and hilly, very beautiful indeed. It is a great place for cycling as the voie vert (dedicated cycling tracks) are nearby and you can hire bicycles there if you prefer to cycle on the flats. If you are up for a hilly cycle you can use Lydia's two bicycles as well. Lydia is very helpful and she provided us assistance during the French fuel strike. Note that the internet provided is not Wi-Fi, but a wired Ethernet connection, so make sure you bring equipment (laptop/tablet) along that will work with a cable. The cottage can be chilly when it is cold outside, but the wood burning stove warms it up very well upstairs. The rooms are separated by curtains so there isn't much sound proofing across the cottage, which may affect light sleepers. Overall, us as a couple with a baby and a small dog had a very good stay.

                                                              Great stay!

                                                              We had a warm welcome of Colette which is the concierge. She is really great! We enjoyed her support as well as her cooking very much! We stayed in La Forge which is a nice house. The only thing is that the living room, diningroom and kitchen is in one room so that there is not so much space with two children. We had perfect weather so that anyway we were most of the time outside. We enjoyed the quiteness and surrounding very much!

                                                              This is a very special place. Over the last few years we have stayed in all three properties in this development They are superbly furnished, spotlessly clean and surrounded by vineyards which produce some very special wine. Too many walks to fit in in seven days. Wonderful biking and should you wish to run...nothing better that running through the vines and the forest nearby. we will be back in October 2015...can't wait.
