Quiet, restful days in Ballancourt!

  • 5 of 5

Eric and his wife Sandrine have put a lot of effort into their gite in quiet Ballancourt! It was impeccably clean, with everything you need to have a great few days or week! We were (a family of six) shuttled from the train station to the gite in two loads, much to our surprise, by sweet Sandrine. Eric took my husband and our luggage ahead to the station upon departure--so appreciated!

Eric helped us navigate directions to Orly, and researched and proposed a couple of local hikes and pools in nearby towns!

You couldn't have a cleaner, more comfortable property and better hosts! We loved the gardens!

We did a lot of walking: local bakeries, Carrefour market, train station (RER D), day trip to Fontainbleu and another day back in Paris!

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed at Eric and Sandrine's apartment for one week. We found this a great space for our needs; well equipped, modern kitchen, washing machine and dryer (essential when travelling with children) Ballancourt is a great town to explore. The train station is in easy walking distance and Paris can be reached easily by train. Eric and Sandrine were excellent hosts and were easily contactable before and during our stay. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting to stay in and experience life in rural France.

French countryside at its best!

  • 5 of 5

If you are a big city person, then stay in Paris :) This place for those who want to be in the heart of France, close to its beautiful fields, rivers, lakes, and of course its rich history. The house is located in the little village with true French spirit. True cultural immersion.

The property is comfortable, the owners are lovely. Eric and his wife will take care of all your needs. I highly recommend the place. Go and fall in love with France and its people.

Location très bien. Louant régulièrement des maisons pour les vacances, voici une agréable location pour passer des bons moments en famille. Maison très bien équipée (même les serviettes de toilettes et les draps sont fournis, ce qui est rare!) Propriétaire très gentil et attentionné aussi. Ayant loué pendant les vacances de Noël, nous avons même eu droit à notre sapin!

Location très bien située : à moins d'une heure de Paris et à 45 min de Disney.

Location à recommander et nous y reviendrons si nous devions revenir en Ile-de-France!
