A beautiful gite and a wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

This has to be one of the best holiday we have ever had! The gite itself is of a high standard with good fittings and nicely decorated. For the two weeks we stayed it was hot and the gite was cool and there were many shady spots in the garden in which to relax. It is possible to walk out of the front door of the gite straight into the beautiful Jardins de mon Moulin and there is also a small private garden and terrace (as shown in the photograph) just for the gite. Our hosts were exceptional and I cannot speak highly enough of them; they were kind, thoughtful and (being on site) were very responsive to our requests and queries. They also brought delicious local goodies for us to taste. There are lots of activities within easy reach of the cottage - we particularly enjoyed visiting local artisans (pottery, furniture makers and cutlers) and museums, as well as one or two champagne caves. We are recommending this destination to all family and friends, even though we would like to keep it to ourselves!

A beautiful and tranquil location

  • 5 of 5

We found this place to be so wonderful that the temptation is to keep it to ourselves. We will be going back. The gite is well equipped and comfortable, the location stunning, and the area generally is very beautiful. The owner was extremely helpful and the whole holiday was one of the most relaxing we have ever had. If you like gardens, as well as peace and quiet, then it can't be recommended too highly. And there are many surprises too - black swans, for example. Simply a lovely experience all round.

A Wonderful Gite!

  • 5 of 5

We have been here for a week and have one more to go. It is absolutely lovely with modern kitchen and bath. It has everything you need- dishwasher, washing machine, good cooktop and oven.

It is particularly lovely for two reasons: The owners have been absolutely wonderful, even though we speak little French. They have been helpful, and we have traded some really good food from kitchen to kitchen. Most importantly, the gardens are fantastic. It is quiet with the sound of waterfalls and the scent of flowers. Walking through the garden is a wonder at every turn--I have found a different corner everyday.

It is clean, well maintained and the owners are fantastic! We have toured militaria in this area and Verdun, but it is close to lots of interesting place. It is a great place for those who love to cook.

I highly recommend this gite for its lovely, relaxing setting

A wonderful gite!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été ici pendant une semaine et ont un de plus à faire. Il est absolument charmant avec une cuisine moderne et salle de bain. Il a tout ce dont vous avez besoin lave-vaisselle, lave-linge, table de cuisson et four bonne.

Il est particulièrement agréable pour deux raisons: Les propriétaires ont été absolument merveilleux, même si on parle peu le français. Ils ont été utiles, et nous avons échangé de la nourriture vraiment bonne de la cuisine à la cuisine. Plus important encore, les jardins sont fantastiques. Il est calme avec le bruit des cascades et le parfum des fleurs. Marcher à travers le jardin est une merveille à chaque tour - j'ai trouvé un coin différent tous les jours.

Je recommande fortement ce gîte pour sa belle, cadre reposant

Schöner Urlaub bei netten Gastgebern

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen sehr erholsamen Urlaub. Das Grundstück ist weitläufig und toll angelegt. Der Umstand, dass es sich um einen Garten handelt, der während der normalen Öffnungszeiten auch zahlenden Besuchern zugänglich ist, wird in der Anzeige zwar nicht wirklich angesprochen. Die Besucher stören aber auch nicht weiter, da der Bereich in unmittelbarer Nähe zum Ferienhaus für externe Besucher gesperrt ist.

Auch für einen Urlaub mit Kindern ist die Unterkunft bestens geeignet. Vor allem die Tiere auf dem Grundstück haben es unserem Sohn angetan. Bei kleineren Kindern muss man zwar etwas mit den vielen Wasserläufen aufpassen, in unserem Fall hat sich das aber als unproblematisch erwiesen.

Wer sich für diese Unterkunft entscheidet und die Region erkunden will, ist auf jeden Fall auf ein Auto angewiesen. Joinville ist ein sehr netter kleiner Ort, der allerdings auch schnell besichtigt ist. Die Metropolen der Champagne oder der Lac-du-Der sind etwas weiter entfernt, was uns aber auch nicht wirklich gestört hat.

Die Gastgeber sind ausgesprochen freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wenn wir wieder mal auf der Suche nach einem ruhigen Urlaub sind, würden wir die Unterkunft in jedem Fall wieder in Betracht ziehen.

Das Ferienhaus liegt in einem sehr schönen Garten in einem kleinen Dorf in der Champagne

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus ist ein Teil einer ehemaligen Mühle und sehr schön renoviert und ausgestattet. Es liegt in einem sehr schönen und großen Garten, der wie ein Landschaftspark angelegt ist und durch den ein Bach fließt. Auf dem Grundstück sind auch einige Schwäne, Gänse, Enten, Pfaue und eine Katze. Zum Haus gehört eine große Rasenfläche mit Sitzplatz und eine weitere Terrasse auf der anderen Seite des Ferienhauses. Der Besitzer der Mühle und des Gartens ist sehr sympathisch und hilfsbereit. Im Dorf gibt es in laufweite ein sehr empfehlenswertes Restaurant. Weitere Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es in ca. 3 km Entfernung in Joinville.
