Our two-bedroomed, two-bathroomed gite has beams and exposed stone to remind you of its agricultural origins whilst having all the modern additions that you'd expect from a luxury holiday letting - a spacious kitchen with high-quality appliances, British and French TV, wireless internet, underfloor heating and a wood burning stove. There are no hidden charges in our rental price - linen, electricity, heating (including wood for the stove) and cleaning at the end of your stay are included. Sociable, well-behaved dogs are welcome.
Cirfontaines en Azois is a small village four hours by car from Calais, and also accessible by train. This secret corner of France is almost unknown to tourists yet offers a wide variety of activities and places of interest. But, enticed by the beautiful view of the forest and the south-facing terrace, you may prefer to relax by the solar-heated pool and then watch the sun go down with an aperitif!
Two years after buying our farmhouse as a holiday home we were so seduced by this corner of France that we picked up sticks and moved here. Our gite is a conversion of one of the two barns on our property and, while we are close by if you need help or ideas for making the most of your stay, another large barn separates our house from the gite so you can also enjoy your holiday in seclusion!
Before moving here, we enjoyed many Gite holidays in France and we've applied our experiences, good and bad, in designing and fitting out our property. So, the kitchen has plenty of space for several people to cook at once, there's a utility room to hide dirty boots and dry wet coats and there's a second fridge for keeping sufficient rosé (or Champagne) chilled.
The village is well-placed for you explore the Champagne region and Burgundy. Our visitors have enjoyed local attractions like the historic town of Langres, the De Gaulle museum at Colombey les Deux Eglises and the lakes east of Troyes and around Montier en Der, both renowned for bird-spotting.
Further afield, it's more than feasible to enjoy a day in Troyes, Reims, Dijon, Auxerre, Gray or Chablis. Central Paris is also accessible by train and it's not unknown for our visitors to drive to Disneyland Paris.
