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.

A stunning woodland location. Gorgeous outdoor terrace area where we ate our breakfast with surrounding woods and forest. Other than some issues with the wifi it was perfect.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We were welcomed warmly by Elise when we arrived, and Romain checked on us via text to ensure everything was wonderful...and it was! The apartment is stunning, comfortable and ideally located for exploring this wonderful city and access to further afield such as Fontainebleau and Barbizon. The Chateau is literally around the corner and parks to picnic in just a short stroll or bike ride away. Make sure you check out the market in Notre Dame particularly on Sundays when the stalls are overflowing with produce you can cook up in your own little french abode! If you walk to Versailles Chantiers station (15 minutes from the apartment) it is only 12 minutes by train into Montparnasse in Paris! (TIP: ask at the ticket desk for a Mobilis ticket €12 which will get you from Versailles and back and all around the Paris metro for a whole day!) We would highly recommend staying here, felt very much at home and had a fantastic time.
