Space 1,291 sq. ft.
Property type cottage

About the property

Single storey house with land of 1500 square meters

Located at the edge of the departmental D174 in a hamlet in the town of Ceffonds few kilometers from Montier en der, the current single storey house was completely renovated in 2014.

You will be seized by the charm that emanates from this place.

The decoration combines modern materials (waxed concrete tadelak) to raw materials that are found in lamps, coffee table or bedside tables made of pieces of wood, or old beams found on site.

This decoration tells a story: that of the inhabitants of this region.

Embroidered linens are transformed into curtains, old planks hay wagon headboards or shelves ... hay forks nineteenth century coat rack.

The poetry of the place comes from the transposition of old materials associated with cozy plaids and current materials.

The history of the country is also in the spotlight:

You will find a library provided on the abbey of Montier en Der, the creation of Der, the history of Napoleon and one of his veterans: Nicolas Nottat ancestor of the family who lived on the premises of which you can read the memories.

You will find all the modern comforts.

The house has two bedrooms with a double bed and a bedroom with two single beds.

A dining room and a living room with a fireplace.

A bathroom with shower and bath.

The kitchen is very well equipped with dishwasher, fridge and freezer, hob and electric oven, wood stove, microwave, and all necessary utensils ...

For your convenience, the house has central heating.

Bed linen and towels are not provided unless requested. A washing machine is available.

The garage can accommodate cars and bicycles.

The house is surrounded by a plot of 1500 square meters fenced topped with fruit trees ideal for evenings outdoors relaxation. And if you want to continue your trip in Champagne World Heritage of Unesco, I propose a comfortable cottage in Reims city center with terrace and garage: http: // www.

A beautiful stay in a beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here, the cottage had everything we needed, the kitchen was well equipped, the beds were comfortable and the shower had great water pressure! The house is beautifully decorated making it feel very homey.

The grocery store was a short drive down the road, which we found very handy. We used this house as a hub to drive to surrounding towns and villages, and enjoyed the champagne region of France. There’s also a lake that you can take advantage of. Veronique took the time to make sure we had all the information we needed about the area and gave us plenty of options, even telling us about special events happening around us during our stay.

We would highly recommend staying here!

The gite was spacious, ideal for a family of five, very well equipped and full of character. There is a lovely outside space for eating and playing. Only 20 minutes from Lac du Der, which is a fantastic location for swimming, and there are lots of facilities at Giffraument. A day trip to the beautiful city of Troyes also recommended. We would definitely recommend this property to others.

We rented this house for 9 nights over the Christmas period and loved every minute of our stay! The house is located in a quiet hamlet, next to a farm and offers views of open fields. The interior is cosy, comfortable and tastefully decorated. As the property seems to be strictly used as a holiday let, there isn't any clutter and you don't constantly feel that your in someone else's house. We really felt at home and didn't want to leave. The kitchen is well-equipped and there was even a raclette set, which we found very handy. The fireplace was also an added bonus. Véronique was lovely and very helpful. She even provided a Christmas tree for our family!

The surrounding area is beautiful and we really enjoyed the Lac du Der and the quiet of the countryside. Really can't recommend this property enough!

Schöner Aufenthalt in sehr gutem Ferienhaus.

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben uns in dem Haus sehr wohlgefühlt. Große Wohnfläche und stilvolle Einrichtung.

Für einen Urlaub mit Kind allerdings weniger geeignet. Dazu ist der See zu weit weg.

Aber das Haus als solches ist sehr empfehlenswert.

Superbe séjour en famille!

  • 5 of 5

Très agréable maison, confortable, propre, décorée avec goût, en pleine campagne (ce qui est très appréciable pour les citadins que nous sommes!!!) mais également proche d'une multitude d'activités adaptées à toute la famille...

Nous en gardons un souvenir vert et ensoleillé!!
