Laon House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Bonjour Les Amis,

Important to understand is that our house in France is a work of love in progress. Although fully renovated and mostly furnished we still have some finishing touches and things to complete in the house, but is ready to be shared as a vacation rental with everything a vacation rental should have and a bit more. You will find for the product however our rental rates are a bit lower than others just because there are a few things like art on the wall yet to be hung. However as you will see, it’s our home away from home and home you will feel the same way. We look forward to sharing our little piece of French Paradise with you. Please look over the gallery of photos and we hope it will bring you to Montchalons as it did so for us.

Private and great neigbors whom are the caretakers and available for any urgent needs. Please contact us.

Montchalons - a home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. It is situated in a lovely quiet village only 15 minutes drive away from the medieval city of Laon. It had everything we needed including a washing machine and wifi. Would definitely stay here again.

Peace, Relaxation, A Little Slice of Country Paradise

  • 5 of 5
I just wanted to thank you for our wonderful trip to your lovely house in Montchalon. It was so restful, peaceful and comfortable. What a lovely slice of paradise you have, no wonder you describe it as a labour of love. It was home from home with everything you would expect in your own home, especially kitchen equipment, comfortable beds and crisp clean bedding and towels. As you said, the plumbing was quirky but we soon got the hang of it :-)

I can't recommend the property highly enough, its location, size and comfort was as expected, and more. Fast Internet speeds. Great Tv including Englsh channels. It was not easy to leave.

We will certainly consider visiting again and I know we will have to look no further than our little home from home in Montchalon!

Tranquillity, Simplicity, Solitude

  • 5 of 5
This is an elegant property, simple, tasteful, and spacious! The village of Montchalons is an unspoiled rural treat: no noise at all, no passing traffic, not an ugly thing in sight. It is, however, quite hard to find unless you have a detailed map, or instructions from the owner, or GPS. Do NOT count on directions from Google maps! There are no stores of any sort in Montchalons; the nearest restaurants are at least fifteen minutes drive. You'd better stock up on everything -- coffee, wine, cheese, breads, and anything else you'll need -- in Laon, the nearest important city. On the other hand, Montchalons is central for visits to Laon, Soissons, Noyon, Rheims, Chalons, the battlefield museums and sites of the Chemin des Dames, and quite a number of spectacular and diverse cultural/historical attractions. Use a compass, draw a circle with Montchalons in the center, and you'll see what I mean. This is a place to stay peacefully and economically for a week or more, with short scenic drives out and back. There's even a lake with rental boats and a golf course within a twenty minute range. The kitchen is well equipped, the internet is fast, and the owner is a very decent chap.

Nonchalance in Montchalon

  • 5 of 5
Bucolic bliss! Gently sloping hills of pastures green, studded with copses enveloped by forests of times forgotten. A silence only broken by the duclet tones of the church chimes. A picture postcard perfect hamlet of 'maisons anciennes en pierre' (old stone houses), narrow lanes that wind through the countryside, beckoning the intrepid traveler into the heart of Picardy. The medieval spires of Laon cathedral perched atop a hill radiate their presence throughout the region, a reminder of the permanence, and lure of the superlative French way of life. Reims, the centre of the champagne region and a magnet for the 'bon viveur, offers champagne tasting, a unique experience since most labels of this effervescent grandiosity never reach the parched shelves of retailers around the world. Overall, a discreet and charming respite for the well-traveled who yearn for the subtle and discerning travel experience.

Memorable Montchalons

  • 5 of 5
We travelled by car from Lille and stayed in September 2012 -pleasantly cool. Eric was very friendly and helpful booking on-line. His directions and suggestions are very good.
You arrive in a gravelled courtyard, parking right near the door. In a big car you might find turning in off the lane a little tight. There’s a wonderfully planted up garden that will get better with time - fresh rosemary, raspberries, grapes…
The finished areas downstairs are wonderful – excellent modern kitchen, very comfortable lounge and dining furniture, the bathroom/toilet/laundry aren’t quite finished but are very clean and functional. Cutlery and appliances are all you need for a lengthy stay. Don't bother to stock up with salt, pepper, vinegarettes, spices etc - there's heaps in the cupboard for the next year or so. All the linen you might need is there.
I’m not a great fan of what seem to be standard internal European stairs, narrow and steep, take them slowly. Upstairs isn’t quite finished yet, mostly painting and bits of trim but there’s all you need with comfortable beds in the three bedrooms. Some of the electrical power points weren’t working in some rooms yet so we adapted the furniture to suit. The upstairs bathroom still needs work done, but the toilet (a bit rickety) and basin are very clean and usable. There’s an iron and ironing board too.
Montchalons village is charming and the people are super friendly. Veronique who looks after the place for Eric is a delight. There are no shops but the baker comes around 10.30 most mornings including Sunday. Laon isn’t far and the drive is very pleasant through other little villages. It is full of history and there are also many other towns and cities within easy drive that we found fascinating. We made a day trip visiting the Champagne area and then Reims where we witnessed a stunning light and sound nightime spectacle that told the story of the Cathedral’s history and construction projected onto the front façade. A fabulous feed at the cosy restaurant in nearby Cheret – La Petite Campagne.
A minor disappointment that we knew about from Eric before we arrived - the fireplace and wood-fired oven shown on the website don't work but he did explain that the house is a "work in Progress".
We might have given this a lesser rating because of the unfinished state of the house but overall we had a fantastic time, would return again, and recommend it to everyone looking for a memorable stay in the French countryside.

Charming and quaint are the descriptors that best capture the character of the house and the village. Our rating would be excellent expect for the fact that the renovations were not quite complete. Once fully renovated, it will be very well appointed, with modern conveniences, tastefully integrated into a historic stone cottage. The description is accurate, the house is well equipped and spacious. We were three staying in the house but it could easily accommodate 6 without being crowded. The owner, Eric and the neighbour, Véronique are both very helpful in providing information and assistance. Services are only a short drive away. In sum, a wonderful place to stay to enjoy the French countryside and as a base to explore the region.
