Until the 60s, Thomery was also famous for its table grapes, Chasselas, and its mode of preservation. Walls that served grape crop were built in 1730 and their total length was estimated at 350 km. Today, many houses have kept the walls and vines and continue the local tradition.

Wonderful Gite

  • 5 of 5

Joëlle and Patrick's gite is a wonderful place and one we hope to use again. The peaceful location and the fact the gite had everything you could ever need made our holiday very relaxed. For us climbers, being able to leave the back gate and be in beautiful bouldering venues within 5-10mins walk was a huge bonus. Le Vaudoué also lies in a great location for short drives to all the major locations. Having access to many (6!) boulder mats and guide books also meant when we return we wouldn't feel the need to bring anything! Table tennis and a swimming pool were available for relaxing after a climb and I only wish we'd had the energy to use them more. From the hosts warm welcome and their thorough guide through the property at the start, we felt at home immediately. Having stayed in many Gites in the Fontainebleau area over the last 15years I can't think of another one that comes close to here for comfort and quality. Thanks Joëlle and Patrick for a wonderful trip.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo passato una settimana indimenticabile! la casa e' assolutamente come descritta, bellissima e offre una qualità che vale le 5 stelle del giudizio.

Siamo stati accolti da Joelle e Patrick (i proprietari) che si sono dimostrati gentili e disponibili come se ci avessero conosciuti da molto più tempo.

Il giardino e' chiuso, recintato e quindi ci sentiamo di consigliare la casa anche per chi ha animali come noi e vuole lasciarli liberi di giocare in giardino: noi abbiamo viaggiato coi nostri 2 cani.

La casa ci e' stata consegnata pulita e fornita di tutto: stoviglie, asciugamani e teli da bagno e lenzuola, proprio come nella descrizione.

La Foresta dei 3 Pignons che offre stupende passeggiate e anche la possibilita' di arrampicata, si trova a 5 minuti di cammino da casa.

La regione inoltre offre innumerevoli siti turistici come i castelli di Versailles e Fontainebleau, e tanti villaggi storici e pittoreschi come Barbizon ad esempio: depliant e guide turistiche sono comunque disponibili in casa per potersi organizzare al meglio, insieme ai suggerimenti di Patrick e Joelle!

Vogliamo ringraziare Joelle e Patrick per averci fatto passare una settimana veramente speciale in un posto cosi bello e magico.

We spent an unforgettable week! The house is absolutely as described, beautiful and offers a quality that is worth the 5 stars rating.

We were greeted by Joelle and Patrick (the owners) that have proven helpful and friendly as if we had known a lot longer.

The garden is closed and fenced and then we can recommend the house even for those who have animals like us and want to leave them free to play in the garden: we traveled with our 2 dogs.

The house was immaculate clean and provided with everything: dishes, towels and bath towels and sheets, just like in the description.

The "Forest of 3 Pignons" offers wonderful walks and also the possibility of climbing, is a 5-minute walk from home.

The region also offers numerous tourist attractions such as the castles of Versailles and Fontainebleau, and many historic towns and picturesque villages such as Barbizon, for example: brochures and tourist guides are available in the house in order to better organize, together with the suggestions of Patrick and Joelle!

We want to thank Joelle and Patrick for letting us spend a week in a very special place so beautiful and magical.

Superb !!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house form Joelle and Patrick for 2 lovely weeks in June. The house is superb, well located and finished to a very high standard. We used it as a base to visit Paris, Disneyland and also Futurascope. Joelle and Patrick are perfect hosts. They were so helpful to us in planning our trips and reccomending local restaraunts, events and facilities. I would highly reccommend this house to anyone, especially if you have kids, visiting the Paris area.

Agréable séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour avec nos enfants dans une maison spacieuse et confortable, disposant d'un accès direct à la forêt. Les enfants ont beaucoup apprécié les randonnées et escalades à proximité. Il faut remercier les propriétaires pour leur accueil, leur gentillesse et leur disponibilité.
