We visited the home in April of 2019 and could not have more happy as this was a truly memorable trip for our entire family. We would absolutely come back to this property again as the pictures do not do the house or the impressive grounds justice (it’s beautiful and well maintained). Michel, the owner of the home, is an amazing host. He was highly communicative in advance of our arrival and checked in several times during our trip to make sure we were enjoying ourselves/did not have any questions. He provided lots of suggestions, many of which he has written in a detailed guest book that he goes through with you upon arrival. Michel clearly wants families to enjoy themselves instead of simply to rent his home and hand over the keys. He actually cooked us a dessert which he left in the fridge for us.
There were 11 of us in total (two grandparents, four adults, and five children aged 6-16) and the home had comfortable sleeping for 11 as advertised with more than enough space. There are two rooms on the lower level with wide hallways and an easy to access shower in case there are any with mobility issues. All of the showers/bathrooms are updated with good water pressure. The large eat-in kitchen is well stocked with dishwasher, cooking supplies and plenty of glasses/plates/etc, coffee maker. The pool does have a separate fence from the main yard as well as a security cover which Michel shows you how to operate so parents can feel more safe with young one’s. It was too cold for the parents to use the pool, but the kids did jump in quickly and the security cover was easy to turn a key to easily slide on/slide off when not in use.
The living room and dining room are large and inviting with a massive fireplace. Michel had logs and kindling set up for us to easily start a fire when we desired and showed us where he keeps additional wood. The home which is on a long country road is still only 2 km from the village of Orgerus and train (easy access to Paris if you don’t want to deal with traffic/parking in the city). The village has nice bakeries, butcher shop, grocery store (even larger grocery store is only 5 km away), wine shop, and several small restaurants.
I highly recommend this house to any family.
My extended family lives in the area so location-wise it was perfect for our family of four (two adults, a 6yo and 1yo). All of the amenities were as promised. We were greeted on time for both checkin and checkout. We had lovely weather so the terrace was perfect for enjoying the late sunsets. The books, games and toys were great for the kids. Fun aside: there were swallows’ nests in the garage so the host asked that we keep the garage door facing the yard propped open so the birds could get in and out. My daughter loved that. Very quiet and peaceful. The bedrooms and play area are upstairs so be prepared to keep a close eye on your toddler if he/she is not good with stairs. As for getting into town, definitely plan on having a car because the closest major town (Mantes-la-Jolie) is about 15-20min away. Otherwise, there’s a small convenience store walking distance from the house and a great little « boulangerie « in Guerville (less than 10min away). Also, house linens are provided for an extra fee, which we sprung for because packing a suitcase full of sheets and towels and flying them from LA seemed silly.
