Perfect getaway for a family holiday
Fabienne is a lovely host and couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect; she even printed our tickets for Disneyland. The place is a beautiful farmhouse and out buildings which took over ten years to restore and the pictures do not do it justice; it's amazing. Located only 40 mins from both Epernay and Disneyland Paris it is perfect for a young family to enjoy the house and explore the region. Lovely fire pit to enjoy sitting around with a glass of wine in the evening. The place is very big; there are three bedrooms although one room you have to walk through the main bedroom to reach. If you have little kids, make sure you take pool shoes as the tiles around the pool can be slippy when wet. The eaves and door heights on the first floor caught us all out regularly so lots of bumps, but goes with the territory. We took our own Nespresso machine but there was one already there so don't forget your pods.
Likes: private gated courtyard, lots for kids to do without leaving the property; rabbits ducks and chickens, BBQ facilities, private pool is fantastic. Large open garage to park at least three cars. Enclosed by buildings and large walls on all sides so kids are safe to play and can't get out.
Large and impressive barn conversion
Very secure property with electric solid gates and high stone walls not overlooked. Large parking area, grass for play and relaxation with trampolene, outdoor games, bikes, table tennis, table football,etc. Wood/charcoal and gas barbecues easy to use either outside or in one of the huge barns. Egg laying hens and several rabbits for young children to feed and hold. Large indoor heated swimming pool with changing room and shower adjoining lounge area with TV. However, the room was fairly stuffy due to the heat from the pool though several patio type doors could be opened. The main lounge was small and dark and adjoined the dining room. The well-fitted kitchen had a central high table with stools as an alternative dining area. The large exterior lacked comfortable furniture with only 2 low loungers and 2 chairs and small table. A pity as this addition would have made it exceptional. Only a communal bathroom/shower upstairs with 3 double-sized bedrooms. Separate toilet upstairs and down.
The village had a good supermarket, excellent butcher and patisserie (even open on Sundays). Good local walking/biking and close to attractive town of Sezanne though more than an hour's drive from other areas/towns of interest e.g. Chalons, Rheims.
Amazing & beautiful property!
We stayed here for 9nights in Sep 2016 and we had an incredible holiday. The pictures on the website really do not do the place justice. It has been beautifully and carefully restored with all its character in tact but with a modern specification. Electrical wooden gates with a remote control and a motorised pool cover for example.
It's brilliant for families as the pool is excellent and the garden is big. The owners provide a massive trampoline, swings, sandpit, scooters, toys, etc. The property is completely enclosed so very safe and private.
Feeding the chickens, ducks and rabbits was also great fun and we received a few free range eggs for our efforts! There is also an excellent fruit & veg patch which produced strawberries, tomatoes and all sorts!
The farmhouse is very well appointed, very clean and has a very high class finish. Brits may want to bring a kettle as it was the only item not provided. Although the kitchen did have a tea perculator which we used instead with fresh tea leaves. If you like coffee bring some nespresso capsules as there is a machine in the kitchen. The kitchen itself has everything you could possibly need.
The main bedroom is stunning. The pool/lounge room with the two sofas is a great place to chill out.
Location wise it's only about an hour from EuroDisney & Reims. Epernay was about 40mins. Provins is definitely worth a day visit. The village shops are only a 5min walk away and it has a supermarket, bakery, cash machine/bank, etc so basic provisions are easy. There is also a large supermarket and petrol station a 5min drive away.
A quick note about the landlord Fabienne. She is a very friendly and polite and made us feel very welcome!
Merci beaucoup pour cette superbe appréciation! Du coup j'ai investi dans une bouilloire! A bientôt j'espère c'était un plaisir de vous accueillir.
This property was amazing, the pictures do not do it justice
Fabienne was a delightful hostess and her house was really lovely. We stayed with our daughter her husband and 15month old grandson. The property was clean and fresh and had everything we could need. The main part of the house was large and traditionally decorated, the pool room, , was modern light and airy, the swimming pool was a great hit with us all, we spent most of our time here and in the magnificent gardens which had ducks chickens and rabbits which we loved feeding. The garden was well equipt with trampoline swings playhouse and toys. It was only few minutes walk to the village center which had baker butchers and mini supermarket.Overall a brilliant property .We would definately recommend it
A perfect holiday retreat
When we arrived and the gates swung open we quite literally could not believe our eyes. The photos of the property we had seen were beautiful but in no way did justice to the magnificence of this amazing home.
The property has everything you could possibly need, a fully equipped home from home. The three children (9, 10 & 11) spent the 10' days fully entertained by the pool, swing ball, sand box and monitoring the chickens for eggs! Many of our plans to go out and about were abandoned as we were loathed to leave.
The local village was very quiet as it seemed lots of local people were also away on holiday but the local SuperMarche and the easily accessible InterMarche kept us fully stocked up on lovely food and very palatable local wines and champagne :)
Fabienne made our planning very easy, making sure we had all the information we needed for an easy journey.
Thank you Fabienne and hopefully we will be back soon.
What a great home. The photos on the site only partly reflect the splendour of the property. So much space and well equipped. We had a great time, the kids (12 and 16) loved the pool. Lovely little village, plenty of others around. Just marvellous. Perfect for those wanting a peaceful retreat, keeping as busy as you want to be.
