Lovely stay at thishouse with character and charm!

  • 4 of 5

We, a family of 9, enjoyed the vacation week of New Year in this charming old house with typical French character! Like other reviews, the house is well-equipped in all the rooms from kitchen to living room to bedrooms to bathrooms, French style. Especially for the older ones amongst us, it was a journey back to memory lane of the good old days and a discovery in whatever room you entered (old clocks like grandma use to have, your first wooden tennis racket, wooden ski’s, old farmland equipment, bathroom sink made out of old sewing tables we believe?). We very much appreciated the long table in the kitchen area and the fire place in the living room to gather around in the evenings. Wood is available in the garden, giving the men enough exercise cutting it into firewood by hand. The house has a lot of glass bringing in a beautiful light throughout the day. And, having the access through the glass doors into the large garden was ideal to stay connected to those in the house. We had planned to go to Paris and Disney for full days, but the house kept us in for sleep ins, long breakfasts, and coffee time that we did not move till late mornings.

As a tip to go into Paris, on the internet we found secured Parking garages for less than EUR 15,00 afternoon + evening within the Périphérique, thus downtown. This saves you quite a high fare for the RET trains getting you into downtown vice versa per person in comparison to parking for a car. Unfortunately, due to Winter season, the pool was not available for a fresh New Year’s dive, but I am sure that in Summer time, the garden and pool are fabulous to relax.

A few minor comments is that parking is in a small street and at times not possible in front of the house for those who feel this is important; the house is in need of a bit of renovation here and there, and the garden could use a Spring cleaning; and for getting groceries etc., you need to go by car.

Manuel, thank you for having made our stay so pleasant. Your welcome upon arrival, showing the boys around the villages nearby, and the time you took to make us feel settled in started off our week with a smile. Happy to come back anytime!

This house has the "wow" factor - Brilliant!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a week at the end of October. We were a party of 6 adults and two children. It really has the Wow factor. The kitchen was well equipped and the house was spotless and beautifully decorated and furnished. The owner had gone to great lengths to ensure that our stay was perfect. The rooms were spacious and airy and our grandchildren loved their bedroom (we were impressed with ours too) The beds were really comfortable and we were impressed with the bathrooms and the abundance of luxurious towels provided (for the pool also). Despite being the end of October we took a swim before breakfast daily in the pool which is set within a fabulous garden. Perfect for children. The house is located in a quiet, peaceful small hamlet so we were pleasantly surprised at how close we were to Paris and Disneyland. We drove to Disneyland (30 mins easy drive and left car at Marne le Vallee station car park only a minute from entrance to Disneyland.) We drove to RER station Bussey (15mins even easier drive) to go to Paris. We spent 3 days in Paris and 3 days at Disney so It was a pleasure after a hectic fun filled day to come back to this fabulous house with its warm and friendly ambience. A well stocked local shop and bakery is only 5 mins drive away.

I highly recommend this property. Manuel the owner, could not have been more charming and helpful ( the wine to welcome us was very much appreciated) - Monique, his manager was brilliant too making sure we understood how to use all the appliances and made sure we were familiar with everything in the house. She even took us to show us where the supermarket was. Everyone in our party agreed it was the perfect holiday home. I will definitely visit again. Many thanks Manuel and Monique. kind regards Beryl

A lovely house with an amazing garden

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for nearly two weeks in Juli 2016. We were two adults and two boys at age 11 and 8 years.

The house is lovely and is equipped with everything you will need. The internet connection is very good. We had no problem streaming movies (remember your iPad -> HDMI connector) from Netflix etc.

The garden is amazing. It is very large and very well kept and the kids loved the heated pool.

There is no shops close to the house. The closest city (Brie-Comte-Robert) is 10 minutes away with car. The city has several restaurants, including a McDonald, and supermarkets.

Manuel was an excellent host. He showed us the supermarked and told us everything we needed to know about the area.

We had a great time and highly recommend renting this house.

Très jolie maison

  • 5 of 5

Louée afin de fêter mon anniversaire. Je ne regrette pas du tout mon choix. Que ce soit la maison, le jardin ou l’accueil. Tout était génial.

La maison est très belle et l'on s'y sent tout de suite comme à la maison.

Nous avons moins profité du jardin étant donné le froid du mois de novembre, mais cela donne envie de revenir cet été pour s'y prélasser et profiter de la piscine.

Merci beaucoup à Manuel et Morgane pour l’accueil. Grâce à vous et a votre maison ce week end était parfait.

La belle vie

  • 5 of 5

Il suffit d’une visite à la vie est belle pour savoir que c’est là que vous voulez être.

Nous cherchions une maison aux portes de Paris et assez grande pour réunir notre famille à l’occasion du baptême de notre fils.

La fête a été comme nous l’avions imaginée, simple et chaleureuse, à l’image de la maison.

La bâtisse recèle de recoins cachés et de pièces spacieuses, dans l’esprit des mas provençaux d’où nous sommes originaires. Elle est très bien entretenue et Manuel, le propriétaire, cultive son esprit de maison familiale qui nous fait nous sentir chez nous. Le jardin est splendide, fleuri, avec tout ce qu’il faut pour ravir les petits comme les grands. La piscine chauffée est également le petit plus qui fait que la détente est totale.

L’accueil de Manuel est exceptionnel, une personne comme on en rencontre rarement. Sa façon de parler de sa maison ne peut que nous imposer le respect de ce lieu chargé d’histoires. Le retour à la réalité est vraiment difficile …
