About Sophie d'Hérouville

Marc and Sophie and their children: Julien, Joseph and Lucie, are happy to welcome you in this charming guest house of Brianny. We speak English and we can communicate in German and Spanish.

Sophie d'Hérouville purchased this house in 2004

Why Sophie d'Hérouville chose Brianny

We chose to buy this house because it's very well situated - 7 kms from the exit #23 “Bierre-les-Semur” on the A6 highway - An hour from Paris with the 'bullet train'.

What makes this house unique

The guesthouse is an authentic little farmhouse renovated 'in his juice' (low doors, bread-oven, well protected, rabbithouse, kitchen garden.... Many cultural activities around and on Sundays “Vide-greniers”: these village-wide “garage sales” in various villages between May and September are very popular.

Tombé sous le charme!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable, le gîte est très pratique avec des enfants en bas âge, il y a tout ce qu'il faut !

Très bon accueil ! C'est plein de charme, à l'intérieur comme à l'extérieur.

Nous l'appelions "le gîte parfait!".

Mooi, rustig gelegen huisje

  • 5 of 5

We hebben net zalige vakantie achter de rug in de Bourgogne streek. Het huisje is heel rustig gelegen, tuin volledig afgesloten. Ideaal met kleine kinderen. Het huisje zelf is in orde, geen grote luxe maar alles wat je nodig hebt. Enkel de matras in de ouderkamer was niet zo goed.
