Beautiful, ideal country escape
Everything about our stay here was superb. My husband and I stayed on our own in in this stunning cottage for the first week of our holiday, my husband enjoyed using the pool in the afternoons. We enjoyed going for walks around the local countryside and ventured into many of the nearby towns which were so full of history and beautiful architecture. The second week of our holiday my daughter, her husband and 4 children joined us. All the children had an amazing time and at one point one of my grandchildren told me "being here at the holiday home was better than at Disney". There was plenty for the kids to do, if they were not in the pool, they were on the swing set or playing football. It was lovely to see the variety of wildlife that this small town has to offer we even had a hedgehog visit most nights. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage and hopefully we will all return in the near future. Thank you.
The scenery is nice but it is a long way to interesting sights. The owners of the house we rented who lived next to had a dog who constantly entered the garden even though we asked them to keep it out because our daughter was afraid of it. We were looking forward to the pool but it was very small and greasy so we only used it once. The lady who received us was very helpful and found extra toys and made sure that the a broken swing was fixed right away.
I understand your disappointment.
We are sorry that you didn't contact us or Johanna by phone for the dog and the swimming pool.
We don't live next to the Forge and the neighbourgs with the dog did not understand your request. The guests usually like playing with this very kind dog.
The water of the swimming pool can change very quickly with the weather conditions. We were not home when you came and when we came back we thought you were very happy.
The dimensions of the swimming pool are correctly indicated in the description but we realize today that in the English version of the website HomeAway the explanatory titles/descriptions of the pictures do not appear (as opposed to the French version). We therefore understand the confusion that arose and your ensuing disappointment due to a mix-up of the pictures on the English version of the website between the Bergerie and the Forge.
The swimming pool in the Forge is new and we didn't have time to put pictures on the website because July was very full of work for us.
Several guests who came through the French version of the website weren't disappointed by the swimming pool. We chose this size of swimming pool in accordance with the size of the garden.
Regarding sightseeing, there are a lot of interesting things to see in our area Tortoir Abbey (5 minutes/car), Premontré (15'), Laon (10'), Coucy le Chateau (25'), WWI battlefields (20'), Center Parks, Guise, Soissons, Reims and the champagne, Compiègne....
The house is especially made to enable resting in the countryside, walk in the woods, discover the pretty villages with all different churches and some with old wineyards.
Thank you very much for your comment and we will adjust our communication on the english website.

Prachtige vakantiewoning, ruim, met mooie tuin en privacy, rust en natuur om de hoek
We hebben met onze drie kinderen (7, 10 en 12) een fijne vakantie gehad in La Forge. De woning was netjes, schoon en ruim. De tuin was prachtig, het zwembad schoon. Het dorpje biedt geen vertier maar je zit midden in de natuur, fijn om te wandelen. Binnen kwartier/half uur bereikbaar: leuke stadjes, dierenpark, recreatieplas L'Axoplage. Via station Soissons of Laon ben je zo in Parijs.
La location est conforme à sa description pas de surprise ! Les propriétaires sont très accueillants et je n'ai pas eu de problème particulier au cours de mon séjour : locaux, literie, vaisselle tout est propre et confortable.
