Lovely, peaceful location
Fabulous log cabins and lovely peaceful location if you want to get away from it all. Just go careful regarding the cleaning options. We stayed for one night en route elsewhere and the following weekend 2 nights on our way back to England. On our arrival the 1st time the place was not that clean. It didn't bother us too much, especially as we were only staying around 12 hours, we just cleaned up a bit before we left. We left it cleaner than we found it. On our 2nd stay the owners paid us a visit and very politely asked us to clean this time as last time we'd left it in a mess. I explained it was a mess when we arrived and we certainly left it cleaner than when we arrived. They did not accept this. Not a complete disaster but it marred the stay for me and left a bad taste in my mouth. I suppose all I'm saying is that if you choose the option to clean yourself, instead of paying their cleaner 40 euros, you need to do an inventory on arrival and make sure you go to the owners if it is not clean. Or take photographs when you arrive to prove how you found it/left it.
Pretty and peaceful location
Lovely location if you want to get away from it all. Gorgeous Log cabin. Just go careful regarding the cleaning options. We stayed for a night two weekends running. When we arrived the first weekend the place was not that clean. It didn't bother me too much, especially as we were only staying around 12 hours en route. We left it cleaner than we found it. The following week when we came back on our return journey the owners visited us and very politely asked us to leave it cleaner this time, as they felt we had left it in a mess. I explained it was not clean when we arrived. They did not accept this. I suppose all I'm saying is that if you chose the option to clean the property yourself (instead of choosing their option of 40euro for a cleaner) make sure you take photographs/inventory of the condition when you arrive and if you think that anything is below standard bring it to the owners attention straight away or you could be blamed for it after your stay. Not a disaster, just marred the stay.

Outside things to do ..
we have loved the idea to have to go up to the farm and get some wood for burning , animals are so kind too .
about the sauna ..
we have spent so much time having sauna in this place like never , its a proper sauna and you have to put some wood to burn and keeping very hot ( we have reached at 100" c ) amazing thing ..
Everyday we had some jogging around the field ( vineyard) and ate a lot grapes too !! ( Dont tell Mr . Mrs Ruppert okay )
You must ask for taste session ( Wine) .
Well !! I wont tell more otherwise it will spoil it .
Honestly it was one of the top 3 best trips ever ..
Mr Ruppert and Mrs Ruppert are very kind and very helpfull ..
we made our trip from Scotland ( Whitburn ) , it a bit far away , but it was worth it !!
I hope we can return to this place once again soon ..
Thank you very very very much for all Mr. Mrs. Ruppert
Well done you all !!!
A truely unique property.
The photos do not do it justice. The space was much larger than expected.
We loved the local area too. Beautiful scenery is everywhere you look. And the picturesque town of Essoyes is a 20 minute walk away with two good bakeries and 3 restaurants.
My only suggestion for the house would be to have portable fans available in the bedrooms. It was very hot when we visited and the temperature in the bedrooms was quite uncomfortable at night.
Charming chalet with beautiful view on vineyards.
The chalet was very spacious and clean with a beautiful view on the vineyards. The dégustation that the owners arranged for us was very interesting and fun. The owners are very welcoming and their dog is adorable. The park is very quiet and because there are only two chalets on the park you have a lot of privacy. It was good to have a swimming pool and a sauna at our disposal. We would definitely recommend this accommodation.
Une belle parenthèse
Accueil vraiment sympathique. Belle vue et tranquillité assurés. Le poêle chauffe bien la maison en hiver et la maison était très propre avec une belle salle de douches. L étable à proximité est un véritable atout pour les enfants ! Tout était parfait !
