My husband and I spent two nights in OEuilly at the lodging of Jean-Eric and Chantel and loved it! The home is clean and spacious with it's own private deck, hot tub and BBQ. Jean-Eric and Chantel are gracious hosts and incredible cooks. We would highly advise you to take advantage of their offer to prepare and serve you a meal in your apartment. It was absolutely delicious!
We spent four truly enjoyable days in the house. We used it as a base for day trips to Reims and the nearby villages.
The house worked perfectly for a family of five. The kids enjoyed having the space, both indoors and outdoors. The backyard and the patio were a perfect setting for breakfast (fresh bread and pastries from a nearby local bakery) and early evening glass of Champagne. The house had everything we needed: it is fully renovated, kitchen well stocked, some games for the kids (the chess table was a big hit for us). The hosts were more than amazing: we ran late for checking in and they helped negotiate to keep the local restaurant open so we can get dinner; they also thought about getting us milk for the kids (and a bottle of Champagne for the adults ;)) as we would not have been able to buy it that late from anywhere; the checkout process was smooth.
The house is in a little village so there aren’t really grocery stores or restaurants walking distance. This was not an issue for us as we knew that and planned accordingly (well, beside the very first night when the hosts helped us). But it is something to keep in mind as you plan your stay.
We would love to stay again in the house if we are to find ourselves again in that part of the world! Merci
