Nice, well equipped house

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the house with our friends. They arrived before us and sent me a text saying the bathroom arrangements were 'interesting'. When we arrived we realised that to get to either of the 2 bathrooms you had to walk through a bedroom. After deciding this was to be our bedroom we realised that this was not a major problem. A large screen had been provided.
We found the house very well equipped and the wi-fi was a bonus. We were all enchanted by a family of hedgehogs that lived in the garden. The house is well situated and the owners gave excellent direction for places to visit. The local bar was also great. The owner and locals were friendly and we had a fantastic meal on the last night. I would recommend this house to anyone wishing for a relaxing holiday.

We'll try and make sure the information about the screen for the 4th bedroom is clearer in future.

Comfortable, full of character, private.

  • 5 of 5
A lovely property, very comfortable with lots and lots of character. The outdoor space is lovely and private, with the use of garden furniture and a big field to play in.The surrounding countryside is beautiful and the people are very friendly, specially the people at the local cafe, even though we don't speak any French. Surprisingly cheap to live there for a week. A great base from which to visit the battlefields at Crecy and Agincourt and also the beautiful beaches. Also not too far out for a visit to Paris. In fact all of the things we wanted to do. The owner is remarkably helpful via e mail on everything from directions to which days to put the bins out. All round a great holiday.

charming and full of character cottage

  • 5 of 5
we had such a fantastic time. Cottage is beautiful. The grounds around the area are lovely. We had 5 children aged 3-13, who loved playing in the fields and we felt that they were safe at all times. The owner provided so much information on how to get there (which was very helpful) and where to go in the surrounded area. Would highly recommend.

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely few days in this cottage. It was more than big enough for our group of 4 adults and 2 children, and the separate lounge and dining room meant we always had enough space and weren't on top of each other. There were plenty of toys, games and videos to keep us all amused, and the log burner made our evenings very cosy. There's plenty to do in the surrounding area, as long as you have a car, and we'd love to return in the summer, when we could make better use of the garden and field!

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5
The description of the property was just spot on. Very quiet area, perfect for walks with the children. My youngest loved to have the bike to play on in the mornings whilst we prepared for a day out. Good location - we even managed a day trip to Paris. The property was very clean and the bedrooms had a real twist with the pitched ceilings. We would love to return and would like to bring friends to stay at the other property next door. Would 100% recommend.

Notes:
The rear of La Maison Verte backs on to the garden of La Maison Jaune but has no windows overlooking that house. Similalry, La Maison Verte is not overlooked at all. Both houses are detached and have separate entrances from the road, their own gardens and parking areas so enjoy complete privacy, but can one can be accessed from the other easily through a gate if a larger party wants to rent both houses. Both houses have their own access to the 5 acre field.
