The little red house sits amongst beautiful gardens, just a stones throw to the main house where our hosts Steve and Sue call home. The home is equipped for a short or extended stay, with full kitchen (cooktop, oven, microwave and dishwasher), dining table and sofa downstairs, bedroom and bath upstairs. A small table and chairs is outside for enjoying your coffee and enjoying the fresh air.
A market, pizzeria, crepery and Asian restaurant are all within walking distance (or very short drive). There is an ATM directly across the street and a coffee house / bar less than 1 block away.
It was a pleasure waking to the nearby church bells and sound of birds in the garden.
Within a few mile drive are several golf courses (we ate at the local 9 hole course and the meal was exceptional).
If ever in this area again we would definitely stay. Our hosts were always available by text, or a knock on the door. We were treated like friends rather than renters. The parking is behind a gate and everything is very secure.
Thank you! We thoroughly enjoyed having you to stay and hope that you come back again soon!
With very best wishes
Very cute house
If you like functional house with a lot of charm, and safe parking and good internet and wonderful owner, not far from Versailles, this is the place to go!
Thank you very much for your great review.
Excellent property with parking
This is a great property to use as a base for visting various tourist sites. From here my wife and I visited Monet's house and gardens at Giverny, Chateau Fontainebleau, Versailles which is about 15mins by car. Central Paris by local train station with free parking approx 40min ride. There is a great little boulangerie within walking distance with amazing bread and pastries. There also two small supermarkets and resturants again within easy walking distance. The house has everything you could wish for, clean and comfortable and is in such a quiet and peacefull setting. Steve and Sue Knight - the owners are great and made us feel very welcome and were very knowledgeable about the area which came in handy. Thank you for the lovely accomodation and your help during our stay. Hope the wedding went well!
Thank you for your review. We love meeting new people and when they're as charming as you guys it's easy for us to make them feel welcome !
Garden setting, close to many sights, just outside Paris
We stayed here 6 nights and were sad to leave. This location was perfect for visiting Giverny, Versailles, Chartres and Auvers-sur-Oise. The owners were excellent hosts, providing information in English and French, they are both very gracious, welcoming and willing to assist when needed.
The house had everything we needed, excellent appliances and comfortable bed. It was clean and quiet. We had an auto and there is parking on the property. Wifi worked throughout the house. The town of St Nom had everything you need, with an assortment of restaurants if you don't feel like cooking, but many shops for the meals you may want to eat in.
We would happily return to this property and stay longer.
Convenient location and well equipped
We stayed here for 9 nights and enjoyed our holiday a lot. We chose it as we wanted to visit Paris, Versailles, Chartres, Giverny and it proved ideal. We had lots of communication with the owners before arrival, and there was plenty of local info at the house. It was clean, well equipped, quiet, private and a pleasure to come back to after a day out and sit in the garden sipping wine and eating cheese. Being able to get the local train to Paris from the local station (in the forest, so no parking problems) was a winner for us.
Easy train trip to Paris
After a day in Paris i used the bath as a private spa. Birds sing in the morning, French speaking Green-yellow-red Woodpeckers mate! Fresh fish, fruits, quiche and Italian quizine but a 10 minute walk. Accupuncture, dentist, optimologist, facials, beautition, bookstore, post office, bus service, woods walks, rough bike trails! lots to do. Shopping for anything....two Malls 20 minutes drive, historic sites. Never board assuridly.
The village of St Nom la Breteche is situated 40 minutes west of Paris (easy access by road and train), close to the historic and cultural centres of Versailles and St Germain en Laye. It is surrounded by beautiful woodland with numerous walking, running and cycling trails, where King Louis used to hunt and where wild deer and boar roam freely. There are several championship golf courses within a few minutes drive. Also close by (10-15 minutes drive) are several large hypermarkets. The Normandy countryside and seaside towns (Deauville, Honfleur, Etretat etc) are just a short drive away, with easy access via the A13 Autoroute
