A week off
We very much enjoyed our week here. The house has three bedrooms, with six proper beds, two bathrooms and a third loo on the ground floor. So lots of space. Garden was most pleasant and felt very private. The front door opens into a courtyard with some nice neighbours who were away to work long before we emerged each day. Sylvie was very kind and helpful and her champagne winery tour was a highlight. Plenty of opportunity to stroll down to the river of an evening and lots to see in the local area. The views from the top of the monument in dormans are worth the effort. Very glad we stayed.
One of the best Champaign growers in the region besides being a fantastic host.
The home was spectacular! Very clean and it had everything we could possibly need. She even provided us a welcome bottle of their delicious champagne. We loved the champagne so much that we purchased 5 bottles to bring home with us. We would have bought more but we were over our weight limit. I'm counting down the days to our return.
Thank you for your evaualtion.
And you, you are very amazing people !
Comfortable and relaxing property ideally situated to the explore the local area
Five of us stayed here. The property was excellent in all ways and very comfortable. Our hosts were welcoming and informative. We spent our time exploring as there is so much to see and do. A wonderful few days here and would definitely recommend staying here
Cute and Functional
Sylvie is a magnificent hostess. The gite is furnished well and was a very convenient place to stay. Highly recommend purchasing some of their champagne.
Thank you very much, we wait you for a new champagne tasting.
Very gracious hosts!
Sylvie & Gerard were very gracious hosts! They have a lovely cottage (gite) in a rural French community so if you stay there you will appreciate having a car to get to Epernay or Reims. There are a few champagne houses in this town but you will need to drive if you want to see more. Sylvie gave us a tour of their press, cellar and vinyard. She started our stay off with a bottle of champagne from their cellar. Sylvie is a gardener and one she day brought us some fresh vegetables to go with dinner. The kitchen has all of the equipment that you will need to prepare meals. The home has a lovely patio for quiet evenings or morning coffee. I highly recommend this property and the hosts
A happy home from which to explore the country-side
Not only is the countryside in Champagne breathtakingly beautiful, the location of Trelou-sur-Marne is also particularly charming and peaceful. Sylvie is a very friendly and extremely helpful host whose ability in English made our stay even better. She was always ready with advice about trains, roads, places to see and even everyday things that those of us who cannot speak a word of French would need. The house deserves its title of HOME because it is such a happy place!! It is comfortable, clean and equipped with all you could need. Relaxing at home on the back stoep after a day of sightseeing, was especially soul-reviving, while the seven-year-old played in the garden and explored the lush vegetable garden adjacent to the house. Hope we can return one day and spend a week or two there again!
thank you very for your commentary. I'm confuse because is great. I do like this, because for me it's evident, I must help our hosts when is necessery and to be erase herself the rest of the time.
I hope to see you another year.
