House surrounded by a landscaped garden. Haven of quiet countryside in which to find the heart of a region rich in culture with the castles of Fontainebleau, Vaux-le-Vicomte, Champs sur Marne and after the bustle of Disneysland, 17km Val d'Europe, the Park 11km 45km felines and Paris. Ideal for family or as an annex to 70m from the large cottage of 12 people Manor Limodin.
A family of four, we used this comfortable and well-equipped gite as a base to explore Paris and other places to the east. There are regular trains from nearby Tournan, with ample parking at the station, which go direct to the Gare de l'Est in 30 minutes. The gite is only 25 minutes by car from the chateau at Vaux-le-Viconte, and Fontainebleau is not much further away. Other places of interest are the medieval town of Provins and, to the north, Meaux with a very large and new First World War museum (Meaux on the Marne being as close as the Germans got to Paris in 1914). The gite is very quiet, and a garden has just been planted which should further enhance it in time. Patricia has even catered for the British need for a kettle, tea pot and toaster, which in our experience are far from ubiquitous on the continent. Tournan and nearby Fontenay-Tresigny each have a good sized supermarket, and a number of restaurants. The nearby village of La Houssaye has a boulangerie/patisserie for early morning bread and croissants, and also a home made "chocolate farm". It also has a large (but privately owned) chateau which was that of Napoleon's Marshall Augereau, who died there in 1816.
