About Collot Chantal
"Let's not let our villages die!" This is the motto of Chantal and Jean François Collot, domiciled in Thillot under the coasts. For this they did not spare their trouble; They have invested to give life to houses to welcome tourists from France and elsewhere in comfort deserving the 5 stars. "We really want them to feel at home." Chantal told us recently. Successful bet! And Jean François to retort "most remain in touch, they have even become friends." She is there, proof that the reception is there. With their legendary friendliness they receive and advise on the many riches of our heritage, demonstrating that the Meuse is not limited to Verdun and 14-18. They make them discover our gastronomy with mirabelle, obviously but also peaches and apricots, the local delicatessens and our vineyard. To promote tourism for these meusiens there is not that the affair of the general council and the tourist offices but that of all, each must complement to promote our beautiful department and there is no need to mirror To see that it is beautiful. Finally, to demonstrate the good life and the well-being of Meuse, it is certain that this is the concern of Chantal and Jean François and as such they become actors of local development and dynamism. They invite you to discover their little cuckoo nests on their site "les gî". We can only wish our regional ambassadors every success.

Lovely house in a lovely area.
The gite was very well equipped and comfortable. Probably one of the best we have stayed in over many years. The surrounding countryside is variable, with flat plains , hills and lakes. If you are interested in Ww1 the preserved trenches in the area are the best I have seen. Verdun and Nancy, which are a short drive away, are both historical and picturesque.
A really nice gite that was extremely clean and well maintained. It also had everything that is required and much much more. Brilliant for kids and even had a high chair, buggy and travel cot. Garden was very well maintained and really quite quiet. BBQ at the property. Really nice stay and we have booked again for 2021!
Beautiful, rural, country location.

Immaculate. Large bedrooms.
Modern kitchen. The owners
spoke French and we spoke only
English but we both had translation apps
so were able to communicate. The owners were super kind and sweet.
Our stay in this part of France was amazing. My husband was thrilled to
visit his boyhood home in the small village of Belleau.
