The careful layout of furniture meant you did not realise it was an open living/bedroom/kitchen area. The grounds the cottage is located in were as described with fantastic views. Very close to Versailles and Giverny. An exceptional french/caribbean restaurant in the village. Would happily stay here again if visiting the area again. Suited for those who love to be in the countryside yet close to a town.

It was comfortable, clean and quiet, and was equipped with everything anybody needs. The accommodation is situated perfectly, being close to a supermarket, shops, restaurants and the palace. Communication with the owner was easy and friendly. We would definitely stay here again.
