This is 'real' France with a chance to live in peaceful tranquil surroundings created with loving care by generations of the owner's family (8).

Le Pot Vert is a beautiful, well-kept cottage, and a perfect little getaway from the city. Lots of little quaint little surrounding towns to visit, and only 1.5 hr drive from the Paris centre!
This is a place where you will really get to experience the French way of living -- from the house itself, to the chickens roaming the grounds, to the glorious produce you will find at the market, to the Michelin star restaurants to dine at.
Frederique was extremely helpful in the preliminary planning process. She would be very responsive, had great suggestions on restaurants and where to visit. You could tell she cherishes her home, and loves to share it with guests.
She also took the time to decorate the cottage with Christmas touches, and along with a wood burning fireplace, all of it really made the place feel like home.
The grounds itself is stunning in the winter, and I could only imagine how gorgeous the grounds are in the summer in full bloom.
Frederique was more than gracious, generous and just overall wonderful. This is a vacation we will always remember!
Le Pot Vert is a lovely cottage about 60 miles from Paris, very near to Orleans. Our hosts provided a fridge full of foods, in addition to spirits, wines, coffee, tea, croissants and breads from a local bakery. There is a very nice pool and relaxation area, but we were there in October 2016, so it was too cool to swim. The grounds of their property were very beautiful. Would love to see them in the spring when everything is in bloom!
They also had a book with directions for everything in the cottage and suggestions of places to eat and visit. Lots of maps are also available.
There are several nice restaurants in the area, but you will need to drive to them.
We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a VRBO outside of Paris.
This was a great property. They had 2 bedrooms upstairs that worked great for 2 couples. Plenty of space to spread out. Beautiful property.
I would highly recommend. Good tram to Orleans.......fun city.
This is very much the French Way of Life! -arched doors,windows kissed with grape vines,a charming swimming pool,sunny skies, flower gardens and paths to walk.A delightful dog and cat coming to greet us as we eat outside listening to classical music.
We feel we were in a joyous dream a bubble of calm...like a child's fairy tale.
We dream of coming back soon,for after traveling some 300 kilometers by bike this cottage was a secret garden for our refuge.
Frederique and Remi were our gracious hosts
As a busy family of five, we were looking for a relaxing holiday in a well-appointed cottage with access to a good pool - we found this and more at Le Pot Vert.
The owners are charming and committed to helping you have a great holiday - the layout of the grounds around the cottage provides plenty of space and lovely views over the garden. The pool is long enough for swimming or volleyball and provides a peaceful and private spot for sunbathing. The kitchen has everything you would expect at home and the fridge was generously filled on arrival. Bathrooms are spotless and bed mattresses are firm. Clean linen and plenty of towels are provided. Wifi works fine, so you can stay as connected to the outside world as you wish:) There are some good local options for dog walking, including a riverbank walk in St Jean de Braye and a local parkland area.
We would recommend the cottage to friends and would love to return one day. Thanks to Frederique and her family for their patience with our dog and all their support and care during the week. A bientot! Phil & Annabel
NB The cottage best suits two couples or a young family, as the two single beds are on the landing outside the master and second double bedroom.
Great location; close to facilities but with the feel of a country cottage. Well appointed (the photos don't lie) and very welcoming hosts in Frederique and Remi; nothing was too much for them, and the home made apricot jam was delicious! The cottage had enough space for young and old to spread out, whilst the pool, the kitchen table and the outdoor table became the focus of family time - a wonderful cottage and worth booking; we'll certainly be going again!
The name of Orleans is inseparably linked with that of Joan of Arc and there is evidence of her everywhere: in satues, her life history depicted in the cathedral's stained glass windows, the house where she stayed in 1429. The city, on the beautiful and wild River Loire, is also the centre of its own wine producing area and the town has more than enough to keep a visitor happy, in particular the old part, which has many fine buildings. Some of the greatest chateaux of the Loire are within reasonable driving distance and the cottage is ideally placed for a day in Paris or Versailles. Fontainebleau on the outskirts of Paris is only 85 kms. Chartres magnificent cathedral is 70 kms.
Other Activities: Many historic places to visit : the great Loire chateaux, etc
Golf: 8 golf courses in the area.
