A wonderful property in a lovely location
As you drive up the path into the forest you are met with a view the impressive pink castle and there to greet us was the robotic lawn mower. The property is wonderful, very spacious and well equipped compared to many properties we have previous stayed in.
If you like wildlife then you will not be disappointed with this location. There are many varieties of birds, insects and even red squirrels.
The hot tub is fabulous and a great way to relax after a long day walking.
We will no doubt revisit this property at some point in the future.
Finally thank you to Camille who was very helpful.
A beautiful, well equipped pink castle. Set in the middle of a private wood, the castle is secluded with no nearby neighbours. Camille was lovely with suggestions of local events. The castle offers spacious rooms with a castle feel, whilst being underfloor heated and having a laundry!
The gardens are a joy and offer loads of room for the kids to run around, There is a Mowbot who keeps the grass tidy. Close to Disney, historic war memorials such as belleau wood and also a plethora of champagne houses.
Amazing Castle, great location, wonderful owner...Fabulous holiday
Father smelled of elderberries
Excellent. A castle feel with underfloor warmth.
Cloudless night sky from hot tub. Spiral staircases galore. Parc Astérix, champagne trail, WWI museum at Meaux, jigsaw, private wood.
Property with a lot of character and very well equipped.
La Folie du Chanois is very well placed for visiting the area around Paris. If you wished to visit Disneyland it is 30 mins away. We chose to go to Parc Astérix which is just over an hour away. There are pretty towns and villages to explore and the Champagne producing area. We visited castles and palaces such as Chantilly and Pierrefond.
There is access to WW1 sites along la Marne river. Le Musée de la grande guerre is well worth a visit.
La Folie is located in a small wood. We enjoyed the patio at the back with sun loungers and the hot tub/ spa surrounded by trees and bird song. We could hear the woodpeckers but only saw one once.
Lovely artisanal Baker in the village. Our 20 and 22 year old daughters chose to share one of the twin bedrooms downstairs because the other was deemed spooky. As has been previously commented on the bedrooms are all separated on different staircases and may be an issue with young children.
All the bathrooms / showers were good.
We found the waterproof mattress covers a bit hot to sleep on.
Camille the owner is lovely and very considerate.
Overall an amazing and unusual property, very well equipped, and furnished with antiques. May well visit again.
Brilliant Family Holiday
Stayed at the pink castle for the first week of Aug 2018 with our 5 and 1 year old (4 of us) Was very pleased with our accommodation, clean, comfortable and extremely spacious. Good kitchen/equipment, good showers, comfortable beds and sofa - the only issue we had was the internet wasn't working due to an external problem outside Camille's control and they bent over backwards to sort out and bought a mobile internet box to use until the internet service provider fixed the issue. The property is big and yes it can feel like the rooms are far apart as none of them are on the main living room/kitchen/garden floor but there are doors than can be opened to the downstairs two rooms making access much easier. As it was exceptionally hot when we stayed we all slept in the rooms downstairs as it was cooler. The stairs were not an issue with our children. We visited the Effiel Tower, Disney, Chateaux Thierry (Buffalo Grill good restaurant and kids loved it) and had a few days exploring the woods, playing table tennis, football/frisbee in the garden. Very peaceful, great location, loads to do and fab place to chill out (can recommend the hot tub after a day at Disney!) We just loved it here and plan to come back. Can def recommend the pink castle!
Fantastic House and only 30 minutes from Disney
Amazing house - three rooms , thee stair cases and three bathrooms - and a bonus of a
hot tub after a long day . Camille could not have been more helpful !
