About the property

An unspoiled estate, with a 45acres romantic park, lake and pond, woods, fields, footpaths and in the heart of the typical French village of Mons en Laonnois with all facilities (baker, bistrot, chemist,.....).

The 18° century house had been restored in two very comfortable and independent holiday cottages. Each semi detached self catering 'gite' has sunny garden, very comfortable furniture, views and use on the romantic park.

The anglers can enjoy their passion in the private lake (2 acres and less 300ms from the house), a lot of beautiful carps (25lbs), pikes, black bass, tenches are waiting them.

Close (6kms) from Laon breathtaking medieval town and from the Champagne area: Reims at 40kms (motorway) with famous cellars and WW2 Redition Room , the 'Chemin des Dames' WW1 battlefield.

Easy daily access to the new Center Parks the 'Lac d'Ailette' or to the 18 holes Ailette challenging golf course.

Not far from Paris and Euro Disney by motorways (120/90kms). For more information, please contact us.

The park: There are more than 35 different species of trees, you can only enjoy the park: sitting on the benches, watching birds ,wild deers coming to drink in the lake.

In the lake carps, peaks, black bass are huge and healthy.

In each season, you admire the colours of the woods, the bird's songs and just be quiet.

From the estate you walk in the Foret de Saint Gobain with managed loops around the village.

Activities: Close from Laon with more than 80 classified monuments, you can spend time to visit the town, walk around the walls and admire the magnificient Gothic cathedral.

A lot of good restaurants in the town or in the country are available.

The 'Chemin des Dames' WW1 battlefield is close from the estate (10kms). In the museum 'la Caverne du Dragon' you see what very bad times our grand fathers have had during this WW1.

A wonderful 27 holes golf course is at 15kms: in the woods or along water hazards, it's always challenging.

Why Mr Patrick Woillez chose Mons-en-Laonnois

A castle destroyed during the WW2, around a 50acres estate with a barn and an old 'vendangeoir' , now our house

When we definitly established, the barn had to be renovated or demolished!!! So now it's renovated in a comfortable holiday cottage in the midle of the estate with lake, woods, fields,...

What makes this cottage unique

Calm, Rest, Silence,

No car needed,

The beautifull old medieval town of Laon,

The WW1 battlefields

And the Champagne brands and cellars in Reims

Owner's Response: Vous avez certainement raison, l’accueil a ete tres froid, les ustensiles sont a changer, et la proprete a revoir. Mais ecrire un avis plus d'un mois apres votre sejour montre votre souci d'ameliorer les choses de maniere efficace. Et je ne souviens pas que vous ayez fait la moindre remarque quand on se croisait dans la propriete ou a votre depart ou encore dans le carnet adhoc que ce soit sur les ustensiles, la proprete et le barbecue dont vous etes bien servi. Par ailleurs le gite est pour 6 personnes et pas plus sans avertir le proprietaire, les pelouses ne sont pas faites pour garer les voitures alors qu'il y a des places de parking a moins de 20ms, et malgre l'accueil tres froid j'avais pris soin de vous expliquer le tri necessaire des dechets, ce qui a ete bien ecoute puisque j'ai du tout retrier: verre, vegetaux,..... .

Car: recommended

Easy to reach,if you land in Paris CDG or Paris-Beauvais we can pick you at the airport.

Driving from the ferry ports Calais or Boulogne, follow A26 motorway joining Calais to Reims, Dijon, Marseille and use the exit 13, just 2 h drive from Calais.

A lot to do all around: use the park to walk, go to the lake for carps fishing. Enjoy the village with a 'bistrot' , a good baker... Visit and shop in the medieval town of Laon with the 1st gothique cathedral, the Champagne cellars in Reims or Epernay with famous Champagne brands: Moet, Pommery.

And if interested by WW1, go to see the battlefields: 'le Chemin des Dames', Peronne with l'Historial, the ANZAC battlefields....

Or you can go play a round at the beautifull and challenging Ailette golf course (20mns drive and cheap green fees) , walk through the St Gobain forest to see deers, boars

Other Activities: Avalable flights in a light aircraft with an experimented pilot

Golf: The beautiful golf de l'Ailette is 18kms far. It's a 18 holes course par 72 and very well maintained through woods but with water hazards on the return loop. All holes are different and to score you must be accurate et long!!!

Special arrangements at l'Ailette Golf Club can be made and it's 20% off for green fees for weekly days.

Reims and Chateau Thierry Golf Clubs are 60kms far and easy to play on.
