Comfortable and relaxing
The property was comfortable, immaculately clean, well equipped and we were given a very warm welcome on arrival. The village itself was charming, full of history and with a wonderful boucherie/patisserie only a five minute walk away, so perfect for breakfast. There were plenty of places to walk and bicycle to and from and was the perfect place from which to explore the Vosges region. Our group had a very happy holiday.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in this beautiful spot.
relaxed eastern holidays
We (4 grown ups and one child aged 2) spend a splendid week in that house. It's really nicely refurbished and well equipped. We used the bikes a lot to make nice tours. Even our child had much fun - throwing stones and branched in the river and canal are real fun. Durning the evenings we love to sit by the fire in the oven. It keeps us really warm...
Last but not least: We were received very nicely and everything was well arranged. All in all a great place to stay.
I am glad the guests enjoyed their stay and took the opportunity to explore the area on the bikes we provide.
Yes it is great to sit by the fire (wood burning stove) in the evenings
It is a wonderful house in a row of different houses build together.
All is clean, good beds which is often not normal. Two perfect bathrooms with toilets on first and second floor. A big kitchen with livingroom and extra big table for having breakfast and dinner on the second floor. Big windows, so it is light in the room.
A wonderful new wooden floor. A good view to the canal, only over the street.
It is quite, no noise, so you can sleep very well.
You can walk along the canal or use the bikes.
The customer service is really good. Friends of the owner are living in the street. They are very nice people from England and they help you whenever you want..
We didn't go to a restaurant because we cooked for ourselves which is no problem in the kitchen either you are 7 persons.
We can recommend this property for hundred percent. It is perfect.
I wrote this in English language so that everybody can understand it from overall.
I can give best notes.
extrem feines Plätzchen!
Wir haben es sehr genossen. Ein perfekter Platz. Das Haus ist wunderschön eingerichtet, der sehr große Wohnraum mit Pantryküche hat einen traumhaften Blick auf Kanal und Fluß. Beide Badezimmer sehr fein. Alles da, was man braucht. Gute Betten!
Die Menschen am Kanal kommen aus allen Ländern der Welt und sind extrem freundlich.
Der Ort ist malerisch schön auf eine morbide zerfallende Art. Interessante Orte und schöne Landschaft rundherum.
Wir kommen wieder.
Schöne Wohnung in schöner, ruhiger Lage!
Wir waren zu acht Anfang November 2017 hier. Marion hat uns freundlich empfangen; sie wohnt ein paar Häuser weiter in der gleichen Straße und kümmert sich um alles.
Das Haus ist geräumig und gut renoviert und eingerichtet. Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Alles war sehr sauber und vieles ist in neuwertigem Zustand.
Auch in der Küche hat es uns an nichts gefehlt und im angrenzenden Wohnzimmer läßt es sich gut sitzen, essen und spielen.
Wir haben uns sehr gut erholt und können das Haus nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen.
Thank you for reviewing the house. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and found the house comfortable with everything you needed. I agree that the large open plan kitchen, dining area and living room at the top of the property is a wonderful space in which to cook, eat and relax with friends and family.
Viel Platz mit besonderer Atmosphäre
Direkter Blick auf die Boote, die auf dem Kanal vorbeiziehen - bequeme Betten - Frühlingssonne im terrassenförmig angelegten Garten - schöne Radtouren am Kanal und in der Umgebung - empfehlenswerte Bäckerei und Teestube in Fontenoy - bestes Wetter im April - prima ausgestattete Küche - wärmender Ofen am Abend - nette Begrüßung vor Ort - wir hatten sehr viel Glück mit der Wahl dieses Hauses!
So glad you enjoyed your time in Fontenoy. You have named some of our favourite things -- breakfast on the terrace, evenings in front of the wood burning stove, walks and cycle rides along the canal and fresh croissants and cakes from the bakery (and the walk across the "passerelle" and along the cobbled "Grand Rue" to get them). I am pleased you found the kitchen amenable and well equipped; having everything to hand to make a nice meal in the evening is also important to us during our holidays in the house. Fontenoy le Chateau is a beautiful and special spot and we do hope we will be able to welcome you once again.
Canals, nowadays mainly used for tourist reasons, pass through the whole of France. Your holiday location is situated on the southern connection of the Moselle-Saône canal. The property directly overlooks both the canal and the river. Small tracks along the canal invite you to discover the region by bike. If you prefer walking there are lots of forests around the picturesque valley to explore. Only a few kilometres away you can experience the culture and charm of old french villages. The spa villages of Luxeuil-les-Bains, Plombières-les-Bains or Bains-les-Bains are nearby. Furthermore there are horse riding facilities, a public pool and the possibility of booking a tour in a carriage or boat hire.There are also a number of golf clubs and ski resorts within easy driving distance
