A superb base from which to explore the Champagne region.

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning gite in a beautiful, rural part of France, with champagne tours and tasting as a bonus. It is an easy drive from Calais. The gite provides all the facilities you could wish for; it is tastefully furnished and provided plenty of space for the three separate families of our party. The garden offers enough room and seating for eating, drinking and relaxation.

We had excellent communication with Francine, both prior to the trip and when we arrived. She extends a very warm welcome to her guests, including a lovely bottle of champagne, and is very willing to offer ideas for places to visit. She provided a detailed tour of the property , and made sure we were happy with everything before she left. Information on the local area is plentiful.

Thank you, Francine, for giving us a relaxing and very enjoyable time in Montmort-Lucy. We were especially interested in the history of your gite, as shown in the photos on display.

Great location and lovely house, details detracted from the experience

  • 3 of 5

The house is lovely, and in a great location across the town square from the boulangerie. The garden is a wonderful place to relax and catch up with friends.

However, some of the smaller details detracted from our experience and reduced the star rating:

- The HomeAway website listed the house as having air conditioning, which it did not. While electric fans are provided for ventilation, this is certainly not the same as air conditioning, and we rely on accurate information in this area as one member of our party has a medical condition which makes her very sensitive to heat.

- Small print (in French only) on the website mentions that towels and bed linens are available for rental. I was only alerted to this when I received an email from the owner one week before arrival. 72 Euros additional for towels and sheets seems a little steep when already paying for the rental of the house - first time I have ever had to pay extra for towels or sheets. It added a little insult to injury to arrive to find we then had to make all the beds ourselves - sheets had been left on top of each bed.

- Supplies of basics were also limited - only two half-consumed toilet rolls were provided in a rental property for eight people - seems light. Hand soap was also not provided in both bathrooms.

These last two may seem small details, but they do detract from the overall experience and question the owner's description of a "top of the range" Gite....

Owner's Response: Wouah! c'est la 1ere fois en 10 ans que nous avons une telle appréciation ! un GRAND MERCI James car cela va nous permettre de faire le point pour nos futurs hôtes et surtout vous éclairer...Il ne faut pas confondre Gîte, Chambre d'hôte, hôtel….dans une CHAMBRE D'HOTE, les lits sont prêts, il y a des savons etc...comme à l'HOTEL. Un GITE est une maison de vacances ou vous trouvez tout ce qui est nécessaire pour dormir, cuisiner, comme chez vous, mais aucune obligation de fournir les draps, linge de toilette, papier toilette, savons, produits d'entretiens ,....c'est à VOUS de les apporter et croyez moi j'ai fréquenté assez de gîtes et hébergements en montagne pour confirmer cela, et c'est ce qui justifie le prix (40 € par nuit par personne dans votre cas). Chez nous vous avez trouvé 2 rouleaux de papier toilette dans chaque wc, de la lessive lave vaisselle et main, du gel pour laver les mains , des produits d'entretien, du thé, café, sucre, farine, huiles vinaigre, épices etc...sans oublier UNE BOUTEILLE DE CHAMPAGNE et une d'eau au réfrigérateur !.....et cela ne vous a pas convenu….tant pis ! des centaines d'hôtes depuis 10 ans ont adoré notre gîte et reviennent très régulièrement. pour la climatisation, il était bien précisé dans le détail que vous N'AVEZ PAS LU "ventilateur dans chaque chambre et dans les pièces principales" tout comme vous N'AVEZ PAS LU qu'il y avait possibilité de louer des draps et du linge de toilette, car pour minimiser le coût de la location, certaines personnes préfèrent apporter les leurs alors que nous pourrions très bien inclure le prix dans la location . nous préférons leur laisser le choix. les lits ne sont pas faits intentionnellement pour laisser le choix des chambres ! Vous n'avez sans doute PAS LU que nous demandions une caution de 500 € que vous n'aviez pas et que je vous ai proposé de remplacer par le dépôt de votre passeport… voilà James désormais vous en savez un peu plus sur les possibilités de vacances, mais surtout N'OUBLIEZ pas de LIRE les détails (si en français, traducteurs sur internet..)vous avez également toujours la possibilité de téléphoner aux propriétaires pour de plus amples renseignements, cela vous évitera des désagréments… quant-à nous, nous sommes sereins, depuis 10 ans notre gîte fait le bonheur de nos hôtes et peu importe si certains ne nous trouvent pas au top, les HOTELS 5 ETOILES sont là pour ça...mais il faut en avoir les moyens… Chacun ses opinions, ses valeurs, sa vie….A MEDITER….

Gorgeous place with easy location

  • 5 of 5

This place has fantastic, roomy spaces and excellent amenities. Host Francine was helpful and communicative in every way, and all her recommendations were great. We were six adults, and the gîte was perfect. We hope to return!

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect location and very comfortable accommodations. We were able to explore the area very easily. We especially enjoyed the fireplace each night. What a wonderful way to end the day sitting around the fire with some excellent champagne. One bottle was a welcome gift from Francine. She was helpful in every way possible. There is a nice restaurant across the street along with a bakery. I highly recommend.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Francine and her hospitality were fantastic. The gite is utterly amazing and the pictures really don't do it justice. We were welcomed warmly by Francine and given a lovely induction of the Gite and the local area. Francine also helped us to book a local vineyard tour and tasting as well as alerting us to local markets and events.

The Gite is very clean, very comfy and has all the amenities you need from a nespresso machine through to a washing machine and iron! We truly felt we were at home for the time we spent there. We all slept incredibly well, and our only wish was that we could stay for longer.

Thank you for your warm hospitality Francine, we will endeavor to return in the near future.

Location

Car: recommended

Close to:

Shops: 0km

Town Centre: 0km

You are in the countryside…and you are in Champagne, in Montmort-Lucy, 15mn from Epernay, and its prestigious vineyards, & its wine cellars of such prestigious names, simply waiting to be visited.

45 mn from Reims, the Coronation city.. And wine cellars! And this year is exceptional, a vintage year for sure…! After giving so much, the vineyard dresses in gold w/ on the edge, settings w/ woods of blazing colours…a real marvel in autumn, the heat is softer, the light more filtered, a few fog banks magnify the landscape.

The winegrowers’ doors open, visits to the wine cellars of smallholders who’ll share their passion w/ you, their knowledge & products… we’ll know how to guide you…

Ideally located, our gite is 1h15 from Paris & Euro Disney, satisfying everyone. We’re waiting for you… & you be back…
