Our stay at this house in La Roche-Guyon was simply wonderful. The photos of the house in the property listing do not do it justice - it is perched on a bluff overlooking the Seine and a sprawling green valley, and on the other side it is approached through a stately park-like garden. We were mesmerized by the view out over the river and as the weather was good during the stay we spent almost all of our time outside on the terrace in the comfortable chairs set out with the view in mind. There hardly seemed to be any attraction in the nearby sights given the environment we had to ourselves.
The house itself is comfortable and pleasant; while somewhat meandering inside - this is a country house, after all - it features an up-to-date, well-appointed kitchen as well as a dramatic modern-style sitting-dining "great" room. Bathrooms (3) are clean and functional. The individual rooms themselves are pleasant and comfortable, and we slept well.
Check-in was straightforward with good communication throughout; we were met in person
Given the large and modern kitchen, we cooked a lot and took our meals outside, watching ships go slowly up and down the Seine. There is a well-stocked supermarket a few kilometers away, and so shopping was easy - a little knowledge of French helps!
Paris is accessible in an hour or less by train from a nearby town, and Monet's house & garden is only 10 minutes' drive. But much of the charm of the location is the small French countryside towns in the surrounding area and the beautiful countryside.
Highly recommended. We hope to return to stay again.
This is a very large up-to-date apartment that was perfect for our stay. Easy access to the major sites we wanted to see. Alexandre was a terrific host and was very responsive with communicating with us. I would definitely stay in the apartment again.
