Lovely characterful cottage with shared swimming pool

  • 5 of 5

Christine and Janick were delightful hosts and we found the cottage to be charming and full of character. We visited during a heatwave making the pool a very welcome facility and although it is shared with the owners this was never a problem. They respect your privacy by not using the pool when you are and vice versa.

The location is remote so you will need a car but is great for visiting various chateaus. Paris with so many sights to see is only 40 minutes by train from Moret Veneux les Sablons.

The Palace of Versaille is about 1.5 hours by car and is spectacular. You need to allow a whole day if you are going to do both the Chateau and Gardens. Well worth the visit but be aware that the queue to get into the Chateau can be very long; 3.5 hours in our case and that was having booked tickets on line. If you don’t you can add another couple of hours to queue for those. You can avoid much of the queuing by buying a timed ticket.

Chateau De Vaux-le-Vicomte is another beautiful chateau (we spent all day there) and on Saturday evenings the garden is candle-lit with a firework display. We didn’t stay for this but it seemed that a lot of people were arriving with picnics for the evening as we were leaving. I am not sure if this takes place every week so best check before you visit if that is your intention.

Guedelon Castle approx. 1.5 hours’ drive is a 20 year archelogy project to build a castle using only traditional methods and provides a great day out. We spent a whole day there.

Moret-sur-Loing is a very pretty village with a river where the locals like to swim. There is also a very nice restaurant that serves lovely crepes and galettes. Drive over the bridge and through the village high street until you get to the tourist information office on your right. The restaurant is about 20 meters further on the right.

Fontainebleau (30 mins drive) has wide range of restaurants and cafes not far from the Chateau. We eat there every other night during our 2 week stay at a variety of restaurants. All were welcoming with good service and reasonable prices. All the meals we had were excellent so I can’t really recommend one over any other as they were all great. The Chateau is also well worth a visit. On the evenings when we did eat at the cottage I cooked on the barbeque. It was a basic barbeque fuelled by charcoal but I found it fine to use and cooked for four each time.

All in all, we had a great time and would be happy to recommend this accommodation.

Wonderful house and beautiful garden close to Fontainebleau and Paris, limited access to the pool

  • 4 of 5

The house and the garden are really nice, the pool is the cherry on top. In the french discription it says:

Nous partageons volontiers notre piscine ( ouverte de mai à septembre) avec les voyageurs dans la limite du raisonnable) Chacun dans le respect et la discrétion.

We asked ourselves what this meant. One example: on our second last day it was 30 degrees celsius, but the owners did not open the pool, because they wanted to visit friends in the afternoon. (We asked in the morning.) So we had to go to a crowded lake for a swim, although we had a pool in front of the house.

Moreover there was no W-Lan available during our stay, althoug the description says that W-Lan would be provided.

We had a great stay as a family of five, comfortable beds, kitchen eqipped with all we needed, a Provence like garden, we did nice trips to Paris, Fontainebleau and Vaux le Vicompte but the access to the pool was more restrictive as imagined and we missed W-Lan access.

Owner's Response: We are happy that the region and our house have pleased you despite the lack of internet connection. Unfortunately, our phone line was cut off for two weeks. A tree had fallen on the line on the road. We understand that living in metropolises this kind of inconvenience is unknown to you. We did not imagine that you missed it because we have fast and unlimited access to the internet with our mobile phones. For the swimming pool, we preferred in the description of the rental a formula calling on the education of each without strict rules. The words: discretion, reasonable, respect seemed the same in all languages. All vacationers before you understood. If you have asked us about the reservation, we would have gladly recommended nearby vacation rentals with private pools. You took advantage of the pool between 4 and 6 hours a day at the sunniest hours, except the day we were absent, we came back around 17 pm and you occupied the pool for nearly 2 hours. We take your comments into account and modify the description of our rental accordingly. "Here, Internet is slow, sometimes absent Plan to read, discuss or listen to nature ............ We lend you our pool without any abuse on your part (not all day) because we also like to enjoy it. Do not run, dive, do acrobatics, do not drink beer and do not eat around the pool for reasons of safety and cleanliness. " If you respect these rules, we will be accommodating. A guest house is not a club hotel. This is our place of life.

Nous sommes venus pour passer un week-end avec notre bébé. La maison était parfaite, agréable, beaucoup de charme, très bien équipée. Nous avons pu profiter de la piscine en alternance avec les propriétaires. Le domaine est magnifique, les hôtes sont charmants et chaleureux ! Une belle rencontre. Nous reviendrons !

Wunderschöne Ferienwohnung, super nette Vermieter, sehr ruhige Lage, wir kommen gerne wieder!!!

  • 5 of 5

Eine wunderschönes Haus in einer traumhaft ruhigen und ländlichen Gegend. Perfekt zum Abschalten. Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr sauber und liebevoll eingerichtet, wunderschöner Landhausstil. Zwei Badezimmer/WCs mit Dusche waren auch für uns 5 voll und ganz ausreichend. Das Vermieter Paar ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Uns hat es rundum gefallen und wir kommen gerne wieder.

Heerlijk zorgeloos verblijf in goed uitgerust huis :-) !

  • 4 of 5

Heerlijk rustig, schitterende tuin, mooi zwembad, die je deelt met de eigenaar. Dus met wederzijds respect voor privacy wordt er gezwommen. Het zwembad is zeer vaak beschikbaar. Goed uitgerust huisje. Moderne 2-persoonsbedden, waarvan 1 twijfelaar. Echter je slaapt bij beide op een 'plastic molton', dus het is aan te bevelen zelf een molton mee te nemen, daar dit erg benauwd slaapt. Er is Wifi, maar die valt wel eens uit. De zeer behulpzame en aardige eigenaars doen er alles aan om dit euvel te verhelpen :-). Omgeving huisje: rustige stadjes, dwz in de zomerperiode. Het nodige qua winkels bijv. is dicht hierdoor. Parijs is echter een dik uur rijden verwijderd. Prima te doen. Wij hebben een fijne rustige vakantie gehad, schitterende sterrenhemel 's avonds en vertier als we ervoor wilden rijden. Het is erg aan te bevelen.
