About Michele Guyard

After living in several countries, my French husband and I (American) returned to the home his family has lived in for several generations. The cottages are in the same hamlet, so we can provide advice on what to do in the region or in Paris.

Why Michele Guyard chose Seine-et-Marne

My husband grew up in this hamlet, following the footsteps of his father, grandfather and before. The Brie is beautiful; one of the 'breadbaskets' of France with its vast fields of wheat, corn, barley...

What makes this house unique

You will really be able to get away from the hustle and bustle and be surrounded by Nature's gifts. Enjoy a quiet moment fishing? Settle in by the lake.

Artistic? You will certainly be inspired by the lavender and roses in our field - selected for their perfume - or by the ever-changing colors over the lake and woods.

Passionate about gardens? This is for you.

Enjoy reading? You will certainly find a new book to enjoy...

There is wonderful food in the area, including the renown 'Brie de Provins' as well as all the Champagne region has to offer.

A wonderful retreat close to Paris.

  • 5 of 5

This is a Beautiful place to stay. The lake and peaceful countryside is your back garden. The Cottages are very well presented and immaculately clean. The beds are very comfortable and the bathroom modern. The kitchen has a lovely farmhouse feel which compliments the modern units. The log burner stove was a favourite and we enjoyed bbq's in the garden. The photos do not give the décor justice. We found the cottages to be a charming place to stay, The owners Michelle and Alain are wonderfully welcoming but do not impose in any way. Disneyland Paris is a pleasant 45 min drive away. Supermarkets are open all hours on the outskirts of Provins about 7 miles away and bakeries are closer. Do not hesitate to book, we certainly hope to return.

Lovely countryside retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This house is quite wonderful. Our family thoroughly enjoyed everything about the house. The lake is wonderful for a quiet walk or jog. We had our two teenage boys with us and we were all very comfortable. The owners are wonderful people and willing to help with directions and ideas for touring the country. We usually stay in Paris, but now have a secret hideaway only an hour away. You will love this place! ~PS Great for English speakers~

Lovely cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage in a beautiful tranquil location, but close to the gorgeous town of Provins. Michele and Alain are delightful hosts and the cottage is very clean, comfortable and well supplied. We enjoyed both the wood fire by night.and sun baking overlooking the lake by day.

Attenzione e cortesia in un cottage immerso in un paesaggio splendido

  • 5 of 5

Ringrazio di cuore Alain e Michele per l'opportunità di poter aver potuto soggiornare da loro. Paesaggio splendido e cottage bellissimo con giardino sul lago circondato da rose . Un particolare apprezzamento per il fatto di averci dato la casa più grande, senza averlo chiesti e a parità di costo, che denota attenzione al cliente e grande cuore. Loro sempre pronti a rispondere ad ogni domanda ed esigenza . Grazie ancora la vostra attenzione e gentilezza rende questo posto ancora più magico
