Iovely house, lovely area
Lovely house with fantastic walks. 5 minutes in the morning to the village for bread. Very helpful owner who ran the vets to arrange appointments for our dogs. Would definitely recommend for families and dogs
Séjour magique, hâte d y retourner!!!
Nous avons passé un super week end dans cette ferme très conviviale et très confortable du Perche. Les enfants ont pu goûter à la liberté grâce aux grands espaces extérieurs. La maison est très bien équipée, tout était parfait. Merci à Madame David pour sa gentillesse et sa réactivité. Merci à Jenny pour les explications et sa courtoisie. Nous reviendrons avec plaisir.
Un super week-end familial
Nous avons passé 3 jours exceptionnels dans cette propriété. La maison et les extérieurs sont supers. Nous étions 7 adultes, 2 enfants et 2 chiens et nous avons tous été charmés. Tout est fait pour que nous nous sentions comme à la maison.
Nous y reviendrons bientôt j'espère.
real nice house with a lot of space in a beautiful enviroment
We had a beautiful holiday in this house, it has a very nice ambiance and is very specious.
There are a lot of nice walks in Preaux du Perche and we have seen a lot of beautiful old villages and castles in the surrounding
Definitely to recommend
Great house in a lovely area of France
I was looking for a property online that is big enough to spend my birthday with my family and is suitable for a holiday with a 6-month old puppy but still has a bakery nearby for our morning croissants. La Basse passiere was just what I imagined. A plus for us was that the owner, Jenny is English, so with our poor written French it was a lot easier to communicate. Jenny was very helpful leading up to the holiday, sent us lot of information to help prepare and even booked our puppy in with the local vet to get his treatment before the journey home.
When we arrived we were greeted by the local cleaning lady on behalf of the owner, and she had brought her english-speaking daughter which was helpful. The introduction to the house was straight forward and we were amazed at all the space; every time we opened a door or went round a corner there was another room!
The garden was huge, and pretty secure. All the facilities in the house worked, we even had to light the log burner in the kitchen one day when we got home from a wet dog walk, and that warmed us very effectively.
Talking of walking, the house is set aside from the village but a short walk on a footpath next to a pretty lake gets you to the boulangerie. Outside the gate is a green lane that heads up the hill behind the house, very suitable for short dog walks, with footpaths leading off the lane for longer rambles.
Our favourite room was the huge, exceptionally well equipped kitchen with a great dining table, the whole family could gather here to cook and chat or even just relax.
We didn't get to try the local restaurant in Preaux as it wasn't open a lot but we had the most amazing birthday dinner in the Moulin restaurant in Conde sur Huine, the food and the surroundings were beautiful (advance booking is required)
The area is beautiful and even if we were unlucky with the weather, we managed to visit beautiful little villages such as Belleme and I can highly recommend the lake in Ferte Barnard.
My family flew to Paris and after a train ride, we picked them up in Nogent le Retrou, and this was our go-to town for shopping and the market.
All in all, lovely experience, my family loved it and the puppy was in dog-heaven for his very first holiday.
Thank you Jenny
