Spacious, quiet, comfortable and lovely designed house

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed warmly by the home help Veronique who showed us around the gite and gave us some tips for places to visit. The house is amazingly designed, clean and very spacious. The large garden provided a quiet retreat, overlooking the corn fields and has an abundance of wildlife (red squirrels, rabbits, birds of all types including storks!). The gite is well placed for visits to all of the WWI sites, the cities of Paris and Lille, and also across the border to the medieval town of Tournai in Belgium. We would recommend this gite to others.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as expected and we received a very warm welcome . The whole family were enchanted by the property and it's setting.

There was plenty to amuse the smaller children and also the teenagers in our family group. We made a visit to the castle in Pierrefonds and also Guise. The younger members spent an afternoon canoeing.

However I was disappointed to find that all the items that were provided required a deposit which was not mentioned on the property booking information. As it turned out the required deposits stripped us of all our cash. Had we known we could have paid by cheque we would have taken our cheque books with us and saved a lot of angst on our part.

Overall we had a really good visit and would recommend the property to others.

Belle maison mais...

  • 3 of 5

Belle maison avec un très beau jardin et une belle vue. Parfaite pour 8, au dela il faut dormir sur la mezzanine ce qui n'est pas très pratique et les tables du séjour et jardin ne sont pas dimensionnées pour manger à plus. Il faut donc manger sur deux tables. Dommage quand on vient pour être entre amis.

Il nous reste surtout un gout amer sur la caution qui nous a été amputée de 50 euros car soit disant deux lits avaient des lattes cassées...Ce que nous contestons vivement!!

Impossible de vérifier quel était l'état avant notre arrivée.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic House with everything you need. Great big garden. You should book this place.

Only thing not perfect, the neighbours seem a bit not relaxed and nosy... but we did not see them much!

très agréable séjour en famille dans cette maison spacieuse et au calme

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour en famille dans cette belle maison situé en pleine nature, au calme, dans la belle ville de Guise. Le familistère et le centre sont accessibles à pied, nombreuses ballades et visites toutes proches. Nous reviendrions avec plaisir.
