Great property for climbers

  • 5 of 5

I almost never do 5 star reviews but I'm going to make an exception for this property. It is in a pretty much perfect location for climbing: 5 to 10 minute drive to the main bouldering areas you could even walk to some in about 30 mins. Even better, 100m up the road is a great little pizza restaurant that has a side line renting out boulder pads. This really simplifies things if you are flying or there's just no space in your car for enough pads.

The property is in very good condition, it has off street parking, a terrace and a garden with a swing for the kids. The owners were very helpful and accommodating with our *very* late arrival and request for a slightly late check-out. Altogether, pretty much perfect.

Excellent Chalet in Good Location

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and spacious chalet, well equipped with large garden and gate enclosure ideal for children to play in, two balconies and patio area perfect for meals, toys and books for children, TV & Wifi worked perfectly.

Space for 2 cars to park, but not side by side. Watch out for large rock when reversing!

The internal staircases are somewhat steep and narrow, externally the only access is by steps too.

Great location for access to forest, Franchard area is within walking distance just over the main road, and the Trois Pignons area is also close by (especially Canche aux Merciers) and could be walked or cycled to.

Other bouldering venues are not far away either (Apremont, Canon, Elephant).

Intermarche at Milly is fairly close + small shop in Arbonne is useful.

Other good places to visit in the area are the Bases de Loisir at Buthiers and Bois le Roi, Fontainebleau Palace, Vaux le Vicomte Palace and medieval town of Moret Sur Loing. Train to Paris easily accessible at Melun.

Good vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Good vacation spot for a family. Cozy and clean house, very nice and wolcoming hosts. You will need a car to move around. The rooms are situated on three levels, get ready for some steep staircases -:)

Sehr schönes Haus mit großem Garten und sehr gemütlichen Terrassen. Alles sehr sauber und gepflegt.

  • 5 of 5

Ideal für Kinder, da der Garten rundum umschlossen ist und es eine Schaukel sowie viele Spielsachen gibt. Der Vermieter war super freundlich, sehr hilfsbereit und sprach sehr gutes Englisch. Außerdem ist die Cottage sehr zentral zu vielen Bouldergebieten gelegen. Uns hat es sehr, sehr gut gefallen und würden am liebsten gleich wieder hin!
