A beautiful, spacious property in a fantastic, peaceful location, about 20 minutes drive from Fontainebleau. The five en-suite bedrooms in the main house are comfortable and well furnished and the one bedroom pool house is an ideal ‘man pad’ for snorers (like me!) who need to be isolated from the rest of the family! Loved the outdoor area with heated pool and well appointed all weather furniture (but could do with some sun loungers!).
On the down side, I found the beds too small for two adults and a little too hard for my liking.
Be prepared if you arrive on a Sunday and don’t know the area particularly well, as local major supermarkets are closed.
Finally, having to pay €1,000 deposit penalised us financially when we exchanged our cash for pounds sterling on our return to the UK.
Overall, a very relaxed holiday after three days at Disneyland Paris, and I would recommend the property to anyone who enjoys peace and quiet in a rural French location.
This is a lovely gite , really well equipped for cooking meals and enjoying them on the terrace. It was really helpful to have linens and towels included.
The garden is fantastic, like being in the forest! Sun and shade and plenty of space and furniture to eat in the garden which we enjoyed doing a lot.
For English speakers it's worth noting the "communal pool" is actually a local public pool, not associated with the gite. Also worth noting that the fourth bedroom does not have internal access to the house - it has a separate external door. Thai would generally be fine but not for children. However the gite is not advertised as suitable for children so it was our gamble - and other than this point it worked really well for us.
The location is fantastic , right near the forest for exploring and rock climbing, and close enough by train for a trip into Paris.
Jean and Jacqueline are friendly and thorough hosts, communicative and helpful.
Thank you for a lovely stay!
