Idyllic retreat

  • 5 of 5

A really well presented property in a private and rural setting, very peaceful and quiet. We were a group of six adults and two babies and the facilities catered for us all. The rooms are bright and very clean with modern kitchen and bathrooms. Outside the garden is well laid out and maintained with more than enough seating. Bikes and toys are provided to entertain both adults and children. Security alarm and electric shutters and fly screens to all windows make for peace of mind. André and Graziella are pleasant, attentive hosts and offer good advice regarding places to visit, eating places, etc. We would certainly recommend this property to anyone who appreciates peace and quiet.

Beautiful Gite and location

  • 5 of 5

Very impressive clean, modern gite with very friendly owners. Garden is gorgeous and spacious with some sports equipment provided to entertain children and the bikes are great. Was lovely sitting in the Sunny garden or finding a shady spot when got too hot. So peaceful and tranquil. Electric shutters and fly screen on Windows. Would recommend to anyone to try .

High standard, beautiful gardens, quiet location, lovely hosts....the perfect holiday house IMO

  • 5 of 5

We have holidayed in France for many years and this is the best house we have ever rented. The house is traditional in style, but has been refurbished in recent years to a high standard and offers very well appointed accommodation in a private and quiet country setting, surrounded by cornfields.

Andre and Graziella were perfect hosts, very friendly and welcoming, keen to ensure everything was ok, but not intrusive. They clearly take great pride in the house, and we very much appreciated just how clean and well presented it was upon arrival. There were bikes and garden games available, as well as plenty of loungers and some very nice patio furniture. It's often the case that larger country gardens are quite plain, but in this case the garden has also been improved and is full of established plants, borders and lawns, not to mention a good sized pond. The house has a good internet service and wifi, and has modern bathrooms and kitchen. We particularly liked the benefit of electric security shutters on all the windows together with fly screens.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the house to anyone looking for somewhere quiet, well appointed, with good family accommodation and great gardens. Would happily return.

Nous avons tout aimé !

  • 5 of 5

Merci à tous deux, Graziella et André, pour votre accueil et votre profonde gentillesse. Ces quelques jours ont bien vite passé dans votre maison où nous nous sommes sentis si bien. A l'origine, nous avons été attirés par les photos, les descriptions et les commentaires : confort, beauté, accueil, tranquillité, ... Quels que soient les critères recherchés, nous avons été pleinement récompensés par notre attente. On se sent comme chez soi dans la maison où chaque détail a été pensé avec goût pour l'accueil et le confort, où l'on sent que rien n'est là par hasard.

Aux heures où les rayons du soleil sont obliques, on ne peut s'empêcher de guetter aux fenêtres pour apercevoir un lièvre. Je n'ai qu'à fermer les yeux pour nous revoir installés à la terrasse ou dans les transats, au cœur du très beau jardin paysagé.

Très belle location

  • 4 of 5

Tout d'abord un grand merci à André et Graziella pour votre accueil chaleureux et votre convivialité !

La maison est tout à fait conforme à la description : spacieuse, très propre, bonne literie et tout le nécessaire pour bien cuisiner et se sentir chez soi, grand espace vert bien entretenu et très joli !

Vous pouvez louer la maison sans hésitation mais attention la voiture est indispensable.

Warm aanbevolen!

  • 5 of 5

Een zeer verzorgde en volledig uitgeruste vakantiewoning met een prachtige tuin in een niet-toeristische maar onvermoed mooie streek (met vooral weilanden, bossen en akkers) waar het heerlijk wandelen en fietsen is.

Gastvrije en discrete eigenaars die steeds ter beschikking staan.

Leuk zwembad in het nabije Guise.

We hebben bij zalig weer genoten van een heerlijke twee weken sportieve vakantie.

Warm aanbevolen voor wie houdt van rust en natuur!
