Guestbook comments from the owner

A quick note to thank you for the use of your property at the beginning of July. We (my sisters & I) had a really lovely time and the location was just perfect. You have an absolutely beautiful property there and we loved your home and found everything met our needs.

Owner's Response: Very pleased you enjoyed your holiday. I'm sorry the dishwasher wasn't working during your stay, I wasn't aware of this. The caretaker has confirmed there was a blockage that has now been sorted. Thank you for your feedback relating to 'additional' costs. We try to make all costs related to the rental of our property very clear for potential hirers to see and be aware of, before they decide to book. It is usual practice for families hiring self catering properties in UK & Europe to have an option to bring their own linen & towels, so the property hire rate does not include a charge for supplying these. For transparency we state the additional costs in the 'Notes' section of the Rates/Quotes page of this advert. Please let HomeAway Customer Services know if you feel, as we do, their advert software should allow this information to be more obvious to potential hirers.

Beautiful, relaxing stay! WonderfulFamily break!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting and grounds, local residents very welcoming and kind- invited us to join their annual Easter egg hunt for the children. Excellent and easy access to Paris and Disney for day trips, and a tranquil setting and environment for a secluded get away. Fantastic and safe for children- will love to go back, especially when warmer to use the pool! Thank you!

Magical place an hour from Paris

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday here. It was amazing to spend a week in such a perfect comfortable little place with access to the gardens of this wonderful chateau to enjoy. We never imagined we'd find somewhere so beautiful and peaceful just an hour from Paris. I can't recommend it enough.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous two weeks in this comfortable and well-equipped cottage, thoroughly enjoying the beautiful, peaceful environment. Quite a few planned excursions were set aside simply because the estate was so pleasant. Highly recommended both as a base for the surrounding area (and visits to Disneyland) and as a place to relax.

Comfortable and peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were so glad we had chosen to stay in La Trousse as opposed to staying in Disneyland. It was a very straightforward 30mins drive from one to the other along the motorway. After a day of crowds, 'chirpy' music and noise, the contrast with the peace and quiet of our holiday home was immense. The grounds and the cottage were neat and tidy and provided everything we needed. The cottage was spacious, more so than is suggested by the photos, and suited our family perfectly. We expected to be sharing the area with a number of other families, but were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves virtually alone during the week. The nights were silent and we all slept very well. I would certainly recommend this rental property to anyone who enjoys countryside and attractive surroundings.

The apartment is full of character and charm and covered all our needs.

The peaceful and beautiful grounds have been the best backdrop for the relaxing time we have spent.

Thank you.
