About The Owner

Weare a French/English couple who previously lived in the centre of paris and moved to this beautiful area a couple of years ago. I am a textile designer and my husband is an Interior Architect. We have two children.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2015

Why The Owner chose Samoreau

The area is very magical with breathtaking nature and a rich history. We were looking for somewhere spécial to live within an hour of Paris where we both work. The property is typical Bourgoise style and the house was the guardians house, it sits in the garden and light and nature is all around.

What makes this cottage unique

The location is perfect for experiencing all that this part of France has to offer, sublime nature, Royal palaces, Picturesque towns and an hour from paris.

Our property is very quiet and cosy with the charm of an old house but i twas completely renovated this year soi s very fresh with all mod cons. Parking is free in the grounds and we are présent to help with any enquiries.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay. Close to the Fontainebleau palace and forest. Sara and Charles were great hosts – gave us ideas on where to walk in the forest. We also got to meet Minnie – their cat who liked to join us for breakfast.

Lovely home and location!

  • 5 of 5

I very much enjoyed my three-week stay at this cozy, comfortable, and conveniently-located home. The large garden is wonderful, as well as all the different local areas to walk. Location is perfect to relax, but close to the wonderful city of Fontainebleau for dining and exploring. The home owners were very kind and welcoming, plus assisted with many suggestions of local areas to explore. Again, a wonderful stay!

Idyllisch gelegene Wohnung nahe der Seine

  • 5 of 5

Wir wurden von Sarah und Charles sehr freundlich empfangen und durch die helle und recht geräumige Wohnung geführt. Die Wohnung kann 4 Erwachsene gut aufnehmen. Ein Kugelgrill und Sitzgelegenheiten für draußen sind vorhanden. Von hier aus haben wir unsere Unternehmungen ins Umland bequem starten können. Fontainebleau, das Schloss und der Wald mit seinen Klettersteinen und einer einzigartigen "Wüstenlandschaft" mittendrin sind sehr zu empfehlen. Wir hatten hier eine tolle Zeit.

Merci beaucoup Sarah et Charles

Sehr schönes Haus mit allem was man braucht.

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten sehr schöne Tage in diesem Haus. Sara und Charles waren sehr freundliche Gastgeber und wir haben uns einfach wohl gefühlt.

Es ist toll, dass man auch den Garten nutzen und der Hund frei laufen konnte, da alles eingezäunt war.

Auch zum Einkaufen war es nicht weit und in der Umgebung kann man einfach viel unternehmen.
