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.

A Truly Unique Paris Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this property was one of the best and most unique experiences of my considerable travels around the world. It was almost surreal to be surrounded by these beautiful and extensive grounds. Tracy's unit was fairly well-stocked and properly maintained, and she was very pleasant to work with. The property is a bit outside of Paris, but if you don't mind the drive, which is beautiful by the way, it's absolutely worth it. It was also relatively convenient to Disneyland Paris, where we spent a couple of days. I would highly recommend this property.

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.
