Very comfortable holiday cottage for 6 people in an unspoiled place

An unspoiled estate, with a 45acres romantic park, ponds, 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 pond (2 acres and less 300ms from the house), a lot of beautiful carps (25lbs), peaks, 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 pond.

In the pond carps, peaks 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.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here with our son, daughter in-law and daughter for 5 nights. We had a great time as this was the first time together in a couple of years.

Patrick (the owner) was great and his english skills were very good. The house was comfortable with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs plus a water closet downstairs. The beds are a little on the small side but were comfortable. The kitchen area was good and the fireplace was great. The only thing lacking was a clothes dryer. There was a washer, TV (only a few french stations) and free WiFi that worked great.

We did rent towels and linens from Patrick. You do have to pay for any extra electrical useage. Don't worry, for the 5 of us for 5 days we ran over but in total it came to about €10 extra.

The grounds are huge. We took a couple of walks around the property. Very relaxing. A short walk from the property is a bakery, market, pharmacy and bar. The town itself is a little sleepy french village (just what we wanted, quaint and quiet).

A short distance away is the historic medival town of Laon with major shopping, train station and restaurants. We ended up driving to Paris for the day. It was a little less than 2 hours away as we parked at the farthest out metro station and took the subway in to Paris. It was very easy to do and recommended. Parking was a breeze and no hassles.

We also visited historic WWI battlefields and Reims, the champagne capital of the world, only a 30 minute drive away.

I would recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet, comfortable, clean, affordable place to stay.
