Our family of 4 stayed at Eric and Sandrine's apartment for one week. We found this a great space for our needs; well equipped, modern kitchen, washing machine and dryer (essential when travelling with children) Ballancourt is a great town to explore. The train station is in easy walking distance and Paris can be reached easily by train. Eric and Sandrine were excellent hosts and were easily contactable before and during our stay. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting to stay in and experience life in rural France.

French countryside at its best!

  • 5 of 5

If you are a big city person, then stay in Paris :) This place for those who want to be in the heart of France, close to its beautiful fields, rivers, lakes, and of course its rich history. The house is located in the little village with true French spirit. True cultural immersion.

The property is comfortable, the owners are lovely. Eric and his wife will take care of all your needs. I highly recommend the place. Go and fall in love with France and its people.

Très bien !

  • 4 of 5

De passage 4j pour une fête familiale dans le secteur, nous avons bien apprécié cette location agréable, bien propre, bien entretenue et arrangée avec goût. Accès au jardin et petite terrasse personnelle ont bien été apprécié ( café dehors, balançoire...).

Les hôtes sont à la fois discrets et à l'écoute. Merci pour les petites attentions ( serviettes torchons éponge fournies, petit minimum déjà en place ( produits ménagers, tablette lave-vaisselle).

Nous étions 6 et grâce à la disposition des lieux, chacun avait un espace bien à lui pour la nuit.

Seuls les escaliers sont un peu raides, mais la barrière est prévue pour les enfants et la possibilité de dormir dans le confortable salon en bas peut palier aux difficultés éventuelles.

De plus Paris n'est pas si loin, on a pu jouer aux touristes.

Bref très bien, nous reviendrons avec plaisir si l'occasion se présente.
