La Folie du Chanois is very well placed for visiting the area around Paris. If you wished to visit Disneyland it is 30 mins away. We chose to go to Parc Astérix which is just over an hour away. There are pretty towns and villages to explore and the Champagne producing area. We visited castles and palaces such as Chantilly and Pierrefond.
There is access to WW1 sites along la Marne river. Le Musée de la grande guerre is well worth a visit.
La Folie is located in a small wood. We enjoyed the patio at the back with sun loungers and the hot tub/ spa surrounded by trees and bird song. We could hear the woodpeckers but only saw one once.
Lovely artisanal Baker in the village. Our 20 and 22 year old daughters chose to share one of the twin bedrooms downstairs because the other was deemed spooky. As has been previously commented on the bedrooms are all separated on different staircases and may be an issue with young children.
All the bathrooms / showers were good.
We found the waterproof mattress covers a bit hot to sleep on.
Camille the owner is lovely and very considerate.
Overall an amazing and unusual property, very well equipped, and furnished with antiques. May well visit again.
