A luxury & charming country farmhouse set in a hamlet amongst the beautiful Langres countryside in South Champagne a few kilometres from the border of Burgundy. This is our country retreat giving excellent access to the gastronomy & history of 3 regions of France but providing a peaceful place to relax away from the hustle & bustle. Renovated & furnished to a high standard with period furniture & high quality soft furnishings giving the ultimate experience of authentic “French charm”. Full of character with many original features coupled with modern comforts ensuring you a comfortable and stress free stay.
You are greeted with a large fully equipped farmhouse kitchen & separate double salon both with wood burning fires plus 3 individually designed bedrooms each with its own private bathroom. Sitting in a wooded valley with uninterrupted views from every window - enjoy the magnificent surroundings in this lovely spot.
We have rented many houses in France and this one is still at the top of the list. In fact we've rented it twice and can't wait to go back. The house is well laid out and each of the bedrooms has an en suite bathroom. Although in a small hamlet, there is a secluded area off to the side for dining outside with views overlooking the neighboring farm (and the occasional cow). If you are looking for an authentic French country experience this is the property for you.
This is a beautiful house, full of character of love, it is obvious Gavin & Shelley put there heart and soul into the place. thank you for that. the kitchen is well equipped and if anyone loves to combine cooking with the overall relaxation it is a perfect combination. Few minor drawbacks to take into consideration. we found the house to be a bit cold at night, only in the bedrooms, downstairs we enjoyed the lovely fireplace. the other drawback is that only the master bedroom has a proper double bed. nonetheless, amazing property, will defiantly consider coming back again.
We have just returned from spending two fabulous weeks in Ma Maison de Campagne - our hosts, Gavin and Shelly, have made the house so welcoming - and beautifully clean and presented - with champagne ready and waiting in the fridge! it is superbly appointed in terms of the kitchen and the living room and our nights in front of the fire with roast pork in the oven are memorable indeed. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and our daily walks were a pleasure. Langres is a find - and our walks along the Roman ramparts, while chilly, were fascinating. A spring sojourn would be amazing.

This is the French countryside at its best! Fresh air, luscious meadows with countless cows and sheep, narrow country roads, lots of chateaus and monasteries – and only a short drive away are stores and markets selling abundant French food and wine. The house is spacious and very tastefully decorated. It has all the amenities of a modern house, but the style of an ancient French farmhouse has been well preserved. We loved having meals at the large kitchen table and then sitting in front of the fireplace with a glass of burgundy wine. The location of the house is quite remote but its only five minutes by car to the next supermarket and a wonderful boulangerie (right next to the supermarket). Do not miss to buy their bread – it is delicious!
We just returned from a week stay at this lovely farmhouse and we already thinking about our next visit. We were 4 adults and two kids under the age of 2. The house was absolutely perfect. I agree that I would have loved to have double beds in the other two rooms but it definitely wouldn't deter me from staying there again. The owners even offered two travel cots for the kids free of charge. The house also had a fully equipped kitchen which made cooking at home easy. We enjoyed many lovely meals sitting around their beautiful kitchen or outside enjoying the view. If you are looking to get away from it all, this is definitely the place. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Four adults and two young children - we all stayed in the farmhouse for six days after travelling for three weeks in Paris and London. It was the perfect end to an activity-filled holiday - the 18th century home was beautiful - sympathethically renovated, with a great, big wood table in the kitchen for all to sit around and chat, have breakfast and dine. Well appointed with all the mod cons you need. Away from it all but with a car, it's very close to small towns, big towns and the nearby lakes. Highly recommended - and great with kids. Only drawback was the single beds in both the non-master bedrooms. Although these rooms were very well sized and with ensuites - it would have suited us better to have another double bed option for couples.
