About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Our self-catering cottage is situated in the grounds of a calm, quiet French chateau B&B. With over 20 acres of gardens and woods at your disposal, it's a countryside oasis that's within easy striking distance of some of France's best-loved sites.

The spacious 125 sq. m. (1375 sq. ft.) 2-story layout makes it ideal for families who want to slow down and spend a few days visiting Versailles, Chartres, Fontainbleau, Paris and even the eastern end of the Loire Valley. We can also tell you about many lesser known places to see, local markets, etc.

Versailles is 30 minutes away by car, while Chartres is just 20 minutes away. You can take the train to Paris from our local station (Epernon), which is 10 minutes away by car. It's a 40 minute trip to Gare Montparnasse. However, there is no public transportation between our village and the station, so you need to have a car if you plan on staying with us.

Atmosfera d'altri tempi, sistemazione super!

  • 5 of 5

Posizione ottimale, immersa nella dorata campagna parigina, il prato ricopre un terreno vasto e la natura è tanto rigogliosa da essere nascondiglio di cerbiatti. L’affittuaria Virginie è stata molto disponibile e attenta, tanto da raccontarci la storia delle abitazioni, costituite da una casa padronale del 1700 e due parti staccate dalle minori dimensioni. All’esterno del Cottege, di fronte alla facciata un piccolo giardino delimitato da cespugli è stato guarnito con diversi tavoli e sdraio. La casa offre ampi spazi, la comodità di tre bagni con doccia, una cucina molto accessoriata, una lavanderia con lavatrice ed asciugatrice, tutta arredata con cura e dedizione, ricca di oggetti particolari (anche troppi per fare le pulizie), pulita e confortevole e trabocca di cuscini! Il parcheggio è comodo e anche la posizione generale dell’edificio che si trova a mezz’ora da Versailles e ad un’ora da Parigi. Ideale punto di partenza per un turismo estivo che prevede, a sera, il ritorno a casa dove prepararsi la cena da consumare all’aperto. Ci sono inoltre diversi supermercati a dieci minuti di macchina. La WiFi funziona a singhiozzi. Nel caso in cui ci fosse un temporale potrebbe presentarsi un guasto e saltare la luce per tornare dopo un paio d’ore, basterà armarsi di qualche torcia o candela, renderà il tutto più romantico!

Siamo stati molto bene … atmosfera d’altri tempi, consigliato!

Perfect Owners, Perfect Cottages, Perfect Location, Perfect Value!

  • 5 of 5

We visited France with four other couples from college and wanted to spend a week seeing the sights before boarding the ship for a Paris to Normandy. The two cottages were perfect for our group. They were very comfortable, quaint, and a great value. They are located in a very small villages with a grocery store and other small villages close by. We enjoyed the villages as they gave us a chance to experience day-to-day life in rural France.

The cottages were also close to the train station for the short commute to Paris and all that Paris has to offer. The owners were extremely helpful and have done an excellent job of providing in-depth information on restaurants, cathedrals, and other points of interest.

To summarize, perfect in every way!

Fijne uitvalsbasis voor gebied rond Chartres, Versailles, Fontainebleau

  • 5 of 5

Zeer smaakvol ingericht huis met veel privacy, van alle gemakken voorzien. Charmante eigenaar. Huis ligt in landelijke omgeving, onderhoud buitenboel beetje met Franse slag. Ligt op 5 minuten autoafstand van dorp Epernon met grote fijne supermarkt. Goede prijs kwaliteit verhouding.

Juste pour quelques nuits

  • 3 of 5

Gîte situé au calme, spacieux, les 3salles d eau sont idéales pour 6 personnes, la literie est bonne, séjour et salon un peu vieillot, mais ça fait parti de la déco!!! La propriétaire ne nous impose pas de faire le ménage +++

Petit point négatif: nous avons été dérangé par l odeur forte dans le gîte (humidité ou produit pour nuisibles ??)

The cottage is situated about 1 hour southwest of Paris, between Versailles (home of the famous chateau) and Chartres (home of the famous cathedral). It is an idea base for trips into Paris, Versailles, Chartres, Fontainbleau and Giverny. It is located in a quiet country village. You will need a car if you plan on staying here.

Paris is a 45 minute train ride from our local station in Epernon.

The eastern end of the Loire Valley is an easy day trip.
