Great house with lovely gardens and pool
Lovely week very relaxing. Pool ideal grandchildren loved learning to swim. House very well equipped.
Three weeks in the country
The house is a lovely old property with ancient roses and other aged plants accenting what might have once been an orchard. The house is warm and exudes the love of a family retreat. It suited our family of 11 perfectly. Rooms are pleasant and the beds are comfortable. A small negative is inconvenient closet/storage for so many people staying for a long period. Americans will find the washer/dryer smaller than normal, requiring more time/attention to laundry.
The well appointed kitchen invites cooking and family meals. The pool is very well maintained and a bonus if kids are in the group. Having made several trips to France, we found this less-travelled area to be very interesting and quiet. A great get-away if you have a stressful life. It seemed to us a more authentic French experience. Nearby towns of Rambouillet, Evreux, Houdan, and Anet provided plenty of history without the crowds of Chartre or Versailles, though they are within a very easy drive. We were treated to witnessing the wheat harvest, showcasing the unique gold color made famous by Van Gogh and other impressionists.
If Paris is your main interest, you may find the one hour commute burdensome. Our time there was unseasonably hot, adding to the fatigue of train/metro travel.
Area restaurants and patisseries were wonderful, though the town of Orgerus essentially closes for August, as do many businesses in France. There are many wonderful markets with very fresh produce, meats and BREAD. Our host was charming and accommodating, a man one would treasure as a friend. Highly recommend La Pommeraie!
Wonderful property. Perfect for family vacations.
We loved our two weeks in June in Orgerus. The house and garden are beautiful, comfy, large and well equipped. On the outskirts of town, it allows for French village life away from mass tourism. Lots to do and great for kids as they can enjoy the pool, horse riding, the Thoiry zoo, Disneyland and Asterix park, which is also a wonderful experience for grown ups. The location is excellent and during our stay we also visited Paris, Versailles, Orléans, Chartres and Giverny.
We have rented properity all over Europe but Michel´s house and his hospitality made our time in Orgerus unforgettable and a 5 star experience.The house, surroundings and host lived up to all our best expectations, and we give them our best recommendation, hoping to return before long.
Asa's family is very careful and has returned a house in perfect condition, and we will be happy to see them again. Thank you for your comment.
Beautiful well-equipped house in a very quiet location yet close to amenities and Paris.
Perfect house for either relaxing and doing nothing or for visiting Paris. It is very well equipped with a lovely pool, good kitchen, lots of space and a wonderful garden. We visited Paris and the zoo at Thoiry, both an easy short drive away. Thoroughly recommended and the owner Michel was very helpful and keen to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Wouldn't hesitate to return.
Peter was a great guest, and we wish to see his family back in the future.
This was already the second time we stayed in this beautiful house. The house itself, the peaceful Orgerus village and the distance to Paris are perfect for our holidays with famlly and friends. It is very easy to visit Paris and Versailles, and even the eurodisney, with a rental car or by train from this location. The best moments are the nights when you return from busy Paris city to a calm and peaceful "home".
Amazing, beautiful property in rural France
We were a party of 10- 6 adults and 4 children aged 3-8yrs.
The house was wonderful, very clean and well equipped with everything we needed for the week!
We hardly ate out as it was so cheap and easy to buy food from the local supermarket (5 mins in the car) and cook ourselves.
Michel met us on arrival and made us feel so welcome- he showed us around and was so helpful, we had his number if there was anything we needed during our stay we only had to call- and he even arranged taxis for us to the local train station when we went on a day out to Paris!
Only 45 mins from Orgerus Station to Paris and the kids loved seein the Eiffel Tower etc without having to travel too far!
The pool was fantastic and the kids (and adults) pretty much lived in it all week! We did strike it lucky with the weather although it was August we had an exceptionally hot wk in the 30's!
The garden is also huge so when they were out of the water the children had loads of running around space and there were a few footballs at the house to have a kick about,
The beds were really comfortable and the newly fitted bathrooms and showers were very modern and clean! Can only think of positive things to say nothin negative -
We would definitely look into staying here again
Thank you Michel for a wonderful holiday- worth every penny!!
45 km away from Paris (ouest), 25 km away from Versailles, 15 km away from the reserve of Thoiry.
Splendid hikes in the surroundings.
Golf courses and horse centres in the surroundings.
