Lovely visit April 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Medieval village of Montchalons.
The house has been totally renovated and was very well appointed! We found the location ideal for travelling to both Epernay and Reims for Champagne House tours as well as touring the Vimy Memorial.
There was some miscommunication regarding the code to the lockbox. The welcome letter should have provided us with that information prior to our arrival.
Wonderful property in charming village outside Laon
We had a wonderful stay at this excellently appointed cottage in the charming village of Montchalons. Nice kitchen, large dining and living area with bedrooms upstairs. Excellent wifi coverage of the house. Only negative was our larger car getting into the carpark.
We are very glad you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately, larger cars in europe are always a bit of a challenge. Especially in Villages like ours that are classed Historique to keep the charm as we are restricted to keep the village authentique. Which is also wonderful from that perspective. :) Thank you for being excellent guests.
Following the path of the GR 12 A we passed by exactly the house we stayed in the weekend. From above the hill the view the church of Montchalons with the houseswe was beautiful. We liked to stay in the house with the fire and the silence of the surrounding.Thank you Eric
Montchalons - a home away from home
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. It is situated in a lovely quiet village only 15 minutes drive away from the medieval city of Laon. It had everything we needed including a washing machine and wifi. Would definitely stay here again.
Peace, Relaxation, A Little Slice of Country Paradise
I just wanted to thank you for our wonderful trip to your lovely house in Montchalon. It was so restful, peaceful and comfortable. What a lovely slice of paradise you have, no wonder you describe it as a labour of love. It was home from home with everything you would expect in your own home, especially kitchen equipment, comfortable beds and crisp clean bedding and towels. As you said, the plumbing was quirky but we soon got the hang of it :-)
I can't recommend the property highly enough, its location, size and comfort was as expected, and more. Fast Internet speeds. Great Tv including Englsh channels. It was not easy to leave.
We will certainly consider visiting again and I know we will have to look no further than our little home from home in Montchalon!
Nonchalance in Montchalon
Bucolic bliss! Gently sloping hills of pastures green, studded with copses enveloped by forests of times forgotten. A silence only broken by the duclet tones of the church chimes. A picture postcard perfect hamlet of 'maisons anciennes en pierre' (old stone houses), narrow lanes that wind through the countryside, beckoning the intrepid traveler into the heart of Picardy. The medieval spires of Laon cathedral perched atop a hill radiate their presence throughout the region, a reminder of the permanence, and lure of the superlative French way of life. Reims, the centre of the champagne region and a magnet for the 'bon viveur, offers champagne tasting, a unique experience since most labels of this effervescent grandiosity never reach the parched shelves of retailers around the world. Overall, a discreet and charming respite for the well-traveled who yearn for the subtle and discerning travel experience.
What an eloquent and splendid review. Merci les Amis.
