About Stephen Girardin
My parents bought this property when i was 4, and all my childhood memories remain in the walls of this house. I used to live in Paris when i grew up, and we would go to this house every single weekend! After studying biology at the Pasteur Institute (Paris) for several years, I moved with my wife and our two kids to Toronto, where i do research at the University of Toronto.
Stephen Girardin purchased this Cottage in 1975
Why Stephen Girardin chose Priez
When we bought this house in 1975, my parents fell in love with the location: so quiet, so secluded, yet so close to Paris (1h drive). The house is surrounded by rolling hills of open farmland, and the only noise you hear is birds singing! However, when we bought the house, it was in a very rough shape. The roof was leaking and we had to change 500 square meters of roof tiles!! There was no toilet, no bathroom, no heat, and only the kitchen and a bedroom were 'livable'. After nearly 40 years of renovations, we uncovered the original gem, fully renovated 275 square meters of living space, kept the original charm of the old farmhouse, but brought comfort and high-end finish throughout.

Superb once again
Great stay, perfect location. This was our second stay at Montmanjeon and was once again a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Spacious, comfortable and inviting in all aspects of what we wanted. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to experience France in a rural setting.
Amaziing, there was 6 adults and 2 young children and everyone enjoyed there stay,m loved it
As soon as we arrived everyone stood and looked in awe, amazing, the house had everything we needed and more.
Our two young grandchildren loved their bedroom with the play room.
The garden was great they loved chasing each other around, they were never bored. happy children, happy adults, great holiday.
The perfect French countryhouse
The pictures do not due this house justice. I stayed here two nights with my sister as it was clearly in the country but less than an hour to Epernay. The kitchen was well equipped and the property had many places to lounge about to read a book under the pear or plum trees. Very relaxing vibe and the village in town has a small grocery and two bakeries. Even better than we expected.
An amazing house
For our family of 6 this was an amazing place. We spent a lot of time out travelling to Disney etc however it would also be a fantastic house just to be at and relax for a week or two. Contact with the owner was really good and we can’t wait to return another time.
Large and Comfortable Property
We loved our week-long stay - this property truly was a home away from home. The rooms are very spacious and the two wood fireplaces were lovely to use during the cooler evenings. Surrounded by farmland - this beautiful cottage offers a very relaxing holiday in the French countryside. We would definitely stay here again.
This is such a gem. We loved our stay. It was truly a privilege to stay in such a beautiful home of this age. The home was spacious and well appointed. It is in the country but several small villages available for shopping and dinning. The weather was raining our entire stay and we were not able to enjoy the lovely court yard however the two fireplaces made for a cost warm stay whether in the kitchen or in the family room. Thank you for making this very special home available to home away.
