About The Owner

Weare a French/English couple who previously lived in the centre of paris and moved to this beautiful area a couple of years ago. I am a textile designer and my husband is an Interior Architect. We have two children.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2015

Why The Owner chose Seine-et-Marne

The area is very magical with breathtaking nature and a rich history. We were looking for somewhere spécial to live within an hour of Paris where we both work. The property is typical Bourgoise style and the house was the guardians house, it sits in the garden and light and nature is all around.

What makes this cottage unique

The location is perfect for experiencing all that this part of France has to offer, sublime nature, Royal palaces, Picturesque towns and an hour from paris.

Our property is very quiet and cosy with the charm of an old house but i twas completely renovated this year soi s very fresh with all mod cons. Parking is free in the grounds and we are présent to help with any enquiries.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay. Close to the Fontainebleau palace and forest. Sara and Charles were great hosts – gave us ideas on where to walk in the forest. We also got to meet Minnie – their cat who liked to join us for breakfast.

Lovely home and location!

  • 5 of 5

I very much enjoyed my three-week stay at this cozy, comfortable, and conveniently-located home. The large garden is wonderful, as well as all the different local areas to walk. Location is perfect to relax, but close to the wonderful city of Fontainebleau for dining and exploring. The home owners were very kind and welcoming, plus assisted with many suggestions of local areas to explore. Again, a wonderful stay!

Maison confortable à proximité de Fontainebleau

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 3-4 jours très relaxants dans cette maison bien équipée, bien chauffée et récemment rénovée. Depuis Samoreau, la forêt de Fontainebleau est accessible en quelques minutes de voiture et nous en avons également profité pour visiter le village de Barbizon. Sara est une hôte attentionnée qui nous a rendu service tout naturellement sur place, et même après le séjour. Nous recommandons cette location, où nous avons passé un agréable moment en famille.

Nous avons découvert Fontainebleau et ses environs en famille et avons passés trois nuits dans cette charmante petite maison.

Nos deux enfants et nous-mêmes avons appréciés le côté champêtre du logement, accentué sans doute par les couleurs de l'automne.

Il y a des l'espace, c'est lumineux et vous êtes bien accueilli.

Une adresse à recommander!

Nous gardons un excellent souvenir.
