Guestbook comments from the owner

A quick note to thank you for the use of your property at the beginning of July. We (my sisters & I) had a really lovely time and the location was just perfect. You have an absolutely beautiful property there and we loved your home and found everything met our needs.

Beautiful, relaxing stay! WonderfulFamily break!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting and grounds, local residents very welcoming and kind- invited us to join their annual Easter egg hunt for the children. Excellent and easy access to Paris and Disney for day trips, and a tranquil setting and environment for a secluded get away. Fantastic and safe for children- will love to go back, especially when warmer to use the pool! Thank you!

Magical place an hour from Paris

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday here. It was amazing to spend a week in such a perfect comfortable little place with access to the gardens of this wonderful chateau to enjoy. We never imagined we'd find somewhere so beautiful and peaceful just an hour from Paris. I can't recommend it enough.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous two weeks in this comfortable and well-equipped cottage, thoroughly enjoying the beautiful, peaceful environment. Quite a few planned excursions were set aside simply because the estate was so pleasant. Highly recommended both as a base for the surrounding area (and visits to Disneyland) and as a place to relax.

Comfortable and peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were so glad we had chosen to stay in La Trousse as opposed to staying in Disneyland. It was a very straightforward 30mins drive from one to the other along the motorway. After a day of crowds, 'chirpy' music and noise, the contrast with the peace and quiet of our holiday home was immense. The grounds and the cottage were neat and tidy and provided everything we needed. The cottage was spacious, more so than is suggested by the photos, and suited our family perfectly. We expected to be sharing the area with a number of other families, but were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves virtually alone during the week. The nights were silent and we all slept very well. I would certainly recommend this rental property to anyone who enjoys countryside and attractive surroundings.

Beautiful chateau at the suburb of Paris

  • 5 of 5

We had great weekend in this chateau. We found everything we needed during our stay. Very close to Disnayland (20 km) and not so far from Paris (70 km).

Best regards,
