The gite was totally suitable for our requirements, we wanted to visit Versailles and Giverny and found we were ideally situated as planned. The gite gave us the perfect place to relax, enjoy arch others company. Would recommend this gite to adults especially but also suitable for families as there is a green space for games. Thank you Sandrine and Home and Away .

We felt right at home right from the start as we were greeted by Aubry, the owner, and shown around this very interesting, eclectic hide away. We were a family of 7, with three kids and two grandparents, and Aubry had made sure we were all accommodated and had even put out some Christmas decorations to add to the warm atmoshere. Leading up to our stay we had very good, prompt communication with Aubry who happily answered all our questions and sent all relevant information for our arrival. We loved our week staying here, going to the village in the morning to pick up something for breakfast from the local boulangerie and enjoying walks along the river. We had two days in Paris, which was very accessible on the train, although you could walk, we parked at Herblay station as we would be back quite late. We also enjoyed a day at Versailles which was well worth the visit. The location is very convenient for day trips and makes a great base for a family break. We all came away feeling like we had had a real escape, enjoying the eclectic decor and natural surroundings. We hope to make a return visit one day and would love to see the area in the Summer next time. Many thanks for a wonderful week.
