Quiet, restful days in Ballancourt!

  • 5 of 5

Eric and his wife Sandrine have put a lot of effort into their gite in quiet Ballancourt! It was impeccably clean, with everything you need to have a great few days or week! We were (a family of six) shuttled from the train station to the gite in two loads, much to our surprise, by sweet Sandrine. Eric took my husband and our luggage ahead to the station upon departure--so appreciated!

Eric helped us navigate directions to Orly, and researched and proposed a couple of local hikes and pools in nearby towns!

You couldn't have a cleaner, more comfortable property and better hosts! We loved the gardens!

We did a lot of walking: local bakeries, Carrefour market, train station (RER D), day trip to Fontainbleu and another day back in Paris!

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

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.

Je komt tot rust

  • 4 of 5

Leuk gelegen woning op het terrein achter de woning van de verhuurder in een rustige woonwijk , complete ingerichte keuken , de woonkamer is wat kaal ingericht maar heeft een goede tv en ruime zit (slaap)bank. De twee slaapkamers op de boven etage zijn keurig maar missen een kast om kleding op te hangen en dat is jammer. Er zijn wel opberg vakken voor kleding en verder miste ik een stoel op de slaapkamer om een handdoek of kleding over heen te hangen. De eigenaar Eric is heel vriendelijk en behulpzaam en gaf tips voor de omgeving en heeft ook een map met tips gemaakt voor leuke dagtrips .

Notre séjour

  • 5 of 5

Bonjour Madame Monsieur, notre séjour le 8 Aout au 14 Aout à été très agréable nous avons eu une bonne accueil tout à été parfait, mais la seule chose qui manquait c'est un (séchoir pour étendre les linges).

Nous allons vous contacter pour un autre séjour parmi vous en 2018.

Owner's Response: Bonjour Madame et merci pour cette belle notation. En revanche et sans doute ai je omis de vous l'indiquer à votre arrivée, mais deux séchoirs sont à votre disposition durant votre séjour : un séchoir type "tancarville" pour étendre dehors quand il fait beau et un sèche linge électrique à la cave .... de manière générale, n'hésitez pas à nous demander si quelque chose vous manque durant votre séjour nous essaierons tant que faire se peut de vous rendre la séjour plus confortable.
