Picture book perfect

  • 5 of 5

The facilities at the Prieuré de Rochefort were fantastic. The accommodation is lovely and very spacious with that 'je ne sais quois' French style. I am not sure that the website pictures really do it justice. It easily accommodated our party of seven. We were lucky enough to have very good weather and were able to spend the warm evenings sitting out in the garden which is equally atmospheric. All the necessary luxuries were present - warm water, a dishwasher, wi-fi and a table tennis table!

We only had 5 nights but were able to fit in loads including a trip to Memetz wood and the Thepval memorial (in memory of my husband's great grandfather who died there), Pierrefonds castle (including a pedalo ride for some) and the fantastic Chantilly chateau and gardens (of interest to fans of history, art and James Bond). One day we split up some to go to Amiens (for the cathedral and jewelry shopping) and others to the fascinating Wellington Quarry in Arras, followed by the Canadian Memorial and the French memorial at Notre Dame de Lorette. On the last day we visited the Armistice Museum which again contained so much of interest. It is just a few miles away from the Prieuré de Rochefort.

In summary, there was so much to do that I am afraid we did not have enough time to fully enjoy the facilities at the accommodation. Anibal was very helpful in his instructions and humoured the fact that I remained disorientated regarding the day of the week. He also gave us a wine recommendation! The donkeys are very characterful and we were delighted to hear that one of them was Irish (as we live in Belfast). My husband even encountered a wild boar one evening as he drove up through the forest.

Overall I would recommend staying here for 2 weeks.

Relaxing, quiet area with lots of space

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. It was a relaxing week for our family of 4. The property has 4 good size double bedrooms - each with en suite. Kids loved feeding the donkeys and there are some nice cycling tracks near by.

Experiencia inolvidable!

  • 5 of 5

La propiedad Rochefort fue una experiencia inolvidable lo mejor de la campiña Francesa.

Un lugar pacífico y apto para relajarse, donde pueden ir niños y jugar afuera.

Las habitaciones son muy bonitas muy cómodas todo muy limpio y acogedor.

Hay Panaderías y Supermercados cerca, ademas de atractivos pueblos muy cercanos donde hacer turismo local.

La Sra. Marie Francoise muy gentil y siempre pendiente de que tuviéramos lo necesario a nuestra disponibilidad.

Lo recomiendo!

Fabulous house in a little known (to us) part of France

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at Le Prieuré de Rochfort and had a wonderful time. The house was exactly as advertised (actually better than we could imagine). We cooked, had lunch in the garden, had friends to stay - ate, drank and laughed. This is a part of France we had not visited before but it is very beautiful with lovely little towns around to visit, a nice market in Pierrefonds (we can highly recommend the butcher there who is more than accommodating) and specially cut a lamb shoulder for my husband who was making a Navarin d'agneau (very delicious). The property backs on to the Compiègne Forest which is very peaceful and was just bursting with spring - the bluebells were just starting to bloom which gave a shadow of blue to the forest floor. We visited the Canadian National memorial at Vimy on April 9th, the 99th anniversary of the battle and were humbled yet again.

In short this is everything you could want in a holiday - a most amiable hostess and her extremely helpful henchman Anibale who looked after us when Marie-Françoise was not there, an entertaining donkey and Highland cow, a friendly cat and a most beautiful house and garden. We were enchanted.

Lovely looking historic building .

  • 5 of 5

We arrived from our 2 half hour journey from Calais to be meet by Anibal our host for the week, he could not have been more helpful he even took us to the supermarket in his car and give us some gorgeous rhubarb and blackcurrant jam . The house itself is in a lovely location near the forest , there are few nice walks right through the forest . The house is really spacious and well furnished with everything that you would need for a family holiday. This area of France is a ideal place to explore loads of places like Peirrefond which is really gem of a place, parc asterix a theme park a hour away and Beauvais a hours drive away and well worth a visit for the cathedral alone. Would recommend this place to anyone .

A beautiful holiday house

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house. It is spacious, very well laid out and has everything you could possibly need for a good holiday. The garden is lovely and peaceful and our two grandchildren enjoyed running around and feeding the cow and the donkey.

Madame Roy is an excellent host. She took care of us and gave good sight-seeing suggestions without being at all intrusive.

There are good walks in the forest directly from the property. There is a good boulangerie in the village and a surprisingly well stocked little gift shop in the square. There are also a few useful shops including 2 supermarkets in the nearest small town (abou5 - 6 kms). Nearby towns that are worth a visit included Pierrefonds, Compiegne and Soissons. There are a lot of sites of historical interest. This was not an area of France that we knew but we enjoyed exploring it. The Pieure was a wonderful place to stay and we would thoroughly recommend it.
