We stayed here for 9nights in Sep 2016 and we had an incredible holiday. The pictures on the website really do not do the place justice. It has been beautifully and carefully restored with all its character in tact but with a modern specification. Electrical wooden gates with a remote control and a motorised pool cover for example.
It's brilliant for families as the pool is excellent and the garden is big. The owners provide a massive trampoline, swings, sandpit, scooters, toys, etc. The property is completely enclosed so very safe and private.
Feeding the chickens, ducks and rabbits was also great fun and we received a few free range eggs for our efforts! There is also an excellent fruit & veg patch which produced strawberries, tomatoes and all sorts!
The farmhouse is very well appointed, very clean and has a very high class finish. Brits may want to bring a kettle as it was the only item not provided. Although the kitchen did have a tea perculator which we used instead with fresh tea leaves. If you like coffee bring some nespresso capsules as there is a machine in the kitchen. The kitchen itself has everything you could possibly need.
The main bedroom is stunning. The pool/lounge room with the two sofas is a great place to chill out.
Location wise it's only about an hour from EuroDisney & Reims. Epernay was about 40mins. Provins is definitely worth a day visit. The village shops are only a 5min walk away and it has a supermarket, bakery, cash machine/bank, etc so basic provisions are easy. There is also a large supermarket and petrol station a 5min drive away.
A quick note about the landlord Fabienne. She is a very friendly and polite and made us feel very welcome!
Fabienne was a delightful hostess and her house was really lovely. We stayed with our daughter her husband and 15month old grandson. The property was clean and fresh and had everything we could need. The main part of the house was large and traditionally decorated, the pool room, , was modern light and airy, the swimming pool was a great hit with us all, we spent most of our time here and in the magnificent gardens which had ducks chickens and rabbits which we loved feeding. The garden was well equipt with trampoline swings playhouse and toys. It was only few minutes walk to the village center which had baker butchers and mini supermarket.Overall a brilliant property .We would definately recommend it
When we arrived and the gates swung open we quite literally could not believe our eyes. The photos of the property we had seen were beautiful but in no way did justice to the magnificence of this amazing home.
The property has everything you could possibly need, a fully equipped home from home. The three children (9, 10 & 11) spent the 10' days fully entertained by the pool, swing ball, sand box and monitoring the chickens for eggs! Many of our plans to go out and about were abandoned as we were loathed to leave.
The local village was very quiet as it seemed lots of local people were also away on holiday but the local SuperMarche and the easily accessible InterMarche kept us fully stocked up on lovely food and very palatable local wines and champagne :)
Fabienne made our planning very easy, making sure we had all the information we needed for an easy journey.
Thank you Fabienne and hopefully we will be back soon.
What a great home. The photos on the site only partly reflect the splendour of the property. So much space and well equipped. We had a great time, the kids (12 and 16) loved the pool. Lovely little village, plenty of others around. Just marvellous. Perfect for those wanting a peaceful retreat, keeping as busy as you want to be.
We have just returned from an amazing holiday at this beautiful holiday rental. We couldn't believe it when we arrived to find all the space this house offers and how beautiful it has been kept. The garden was thoroughly impressive, our daughter loved the playhouse, the swing and the rocker as well as the trampoline! Inside the house was beautiful, kept nice and cool with he scorching heat. The pool was fantastic, very big and just the right temperature. Esternay itself is very nice, it is a 5 minute walk in to the centre where there is a shop, a pattiserie and a butchers. A 5 minute drive on the outskirts of Esternay is an intermarche supermarket and petrol station. We visited other local towns whilst there such as Sezanne, where we had a wonderful meal, we also visited Provins and Disneyland, all fantastic and not too far from the rental. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and hope to return again, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone.
When we pulled up to the gate of this accommodation, we have no idea that beauty and luxury was on the other side. The pictures looked amazing and almost too good to be true, but this renovated farmhouse exceeded our expectations. From the moment we arrived until the day we left, we felt so blessed to be able to stay in such a place of beauty. My kids absolutely loved that we had a pool in the house. We all agreed that we would return. We could have lived there forever. The owner was so pleasant and accommodating. One of the best places we have ever stayed.
