It was amazing Cecile spoke perfect English was the pe
I really enjoyed my stay at this cottage. Cécile was the perfect host. The cottage was bigger Then expected and extremely clean the beds were comfortable the yard was huge and most of all the atmosphere was stunning it was a perfect week in Bailey so close to Versailles and I can’t thank Cecile enough for providing the perfect vacation for us four ladies from Florida thank you so much. Cécile also let us use her private space to have a fantastic French cooking class. We asked her to try to find us a teacher to learn the art of French cooking and she did the research and organized the class. It was the highlight of our week. Caroline the teacher chef was amazing and it truly was rewarding. Versailles was such a beautiful city with so much history. I’ll never forget this wonderful stay at Cécile ruche and Alex ruche cottage.
Ferme de Pontaly
From the Cox family,
We had a wonderful stay at the Ferme de Pentaly and Cecile was extremely welcoming and helpful from the moment we arrived (late). The gite was very clean and spacious and had everything we needed as a family and the location was very very helpful hosts and a monderful location with clean and spacious. Cecile put herself out to meet our every need and we loved being on the farm. Being close to a number of rail stations with fast train to Gare Monpanasse was ideal. We would have no hesitation on recommending this holiday place.
Full of character
We loved staying at this property. It was very comfortable, clean, modern, nicely decorated and well-equipped. Cêcile is a fabulous host - very helpful and welcoming and speaks excellent English. It was lovely to escape to the tranquility of the countryside as well as having easy access to Paris. A hire car is very useful but not essential if you are a cyclist. We did not realise that in August many Parisians are on holiday and this is when maintenance is done on the train lines so there were closures to alot of the lines and stations.
I would thoroughly recommend staying at this property, great for kids, families, couples.
Home with character in beautiful setting
We really enjoyed our stay. The home was super clean and Cecile was very friendly and helpful. The home had a washer and dryer which was very useful. Our children enjoyed walking around and looking at the horses and goats. We would definitely recommend this rental.
The owners/hosts were welcoming and helpful. It is clear they have a passion for their home and farm. The cottage is restored with a clean simple look and had all we needed in the kitchen. The location was perfect for our daytrips to the beautiful towns of Giverney, Versailles and Chartres. The farm is interesting with horses, chickens and goats. Fun for young and old.
Charming farm cottage makes you feel a world away, but only 10 mins from Château de Versailles!
Very quaint setting with friendly host. Two bedrooms and bathrooms with a living room and kitchen and laundry machines! Perfect for 4-5 travelers. My wife and I traveled with another couple and it was perfect set up. It had privacy available but also a common area. Loved the experience and we even received a jar of honey collected from the farm we stayed at! It really felt like you were an hour out into the countryside but only a 10 min drive to Versailles.
I would recommend it to all my friends and family!
