About the property

2 elegant 2-bedroom stone cottages in private 8HA park close to Paris, Champagne

2 elegant stone cottages 1 hr to Paris (train or car), 15 min. medieval Provins, 20 mins. Champagne Route, 1 hr prestigious Fontainebleau castle. On private 8HA lake and woods reserved for renters and owners (fishing/pedalo).

Bring your children or grandchildren - we put lots of toys out for them. Play Golf or ping-pong.

Go champagne tasting in Epernay or Reims, go to visit Paris, Vaux-le-Vicomte, Fontainebleau, Chablis, Disney...learn about the French. We are a great base location for your holidays.

Many books in the cottage and a wood-burning stove to keep you warm. Our quiet hamlet in the 'Brie' will let you reconnect to nature: feed the ducks, contemplate the geese soaring above.

We are a Franco-American family so we have lots to share. Everything here has a story as it has been in the family for several generations.

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' cheese as well as all the Champagne region has to offer.

A fabulous cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for a fun-filled Christmas. The cottage itself is lovely, newly decorated, with all the necessities and more! We were so spoilt to arrive to a real Christmas tree in the cottage lounge, complete with lights! This really made our Christmas. The cottage surroundings are lovely, with a lake for a spot of fishing. The hosts are extremely helpful and super friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them. We would highly recommend this accommodation to others looking for a tranquil break, with some key destinations, such as the champagne region, in easy driving distance.

Un weekend réussi!

  • 5 of 5

La maison est décorée avec goût, bien chauffée, il y a des livres partout dans la maison pour ne pas s'ennuyer :) Il y a un petit lac au fond du jardin. La maison est au calme, on entend au loin les canards et oies qui s'agitent le matin, Pour les parisiens que nous sommes, c'est un vrai dépaysement!

Enfin, Michele et Alain sont des hôtes attentionnés, disponibles et très sympathiques. Tout y est pour passer un agréable weekend.

Je vous recommande ce cottage sans réserve!

Owner's Response: We were so happy to host Victoria, Jose Enrique and their delightful children. Everyone was enthusiastic, friendly and busy enjoying the region. They left the house in absolutely perfect condition; I would highly recommend them to other hosts! We would love to have them back again...thank you for staying with us!
