Two log houses with swimming pool and sauna in Essoyes, Champagne
average rating of 4.75 based on 48 reviews

A truely unique property.

  • 4 of 5

The photos do not do it justice. The space was much larger than expected.

We loved the local area too. Beautiful scenery is everywhere you look. And the picturesque town of Essoyes is a 20 minute walk away with two good bakeries and 3 restaurants.

My only suggestion for the house would be to have portable fans available in the bedrooms. It was very hot when we visited and the temperature in the bedrooms was quite uncomfortable at night.

Charming chalet with beautiful view on vineyards.

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was very spacious and clean with a beautiful view on the vineyards. The dégustation that the owners arranged for us was very interesting and fun. The owners are very welcoming and their dog is adorable. The park is very quiet and because there are only two chalets on the park you have a lot of privacy. It was good to have a swimming pool and a sauna at our disposal. We would definitely recommend this accommodation.

Un très beau chalet dans la nature

  • 5 of 5

Un week end de Pentecôte très agréable dans un chalet très bien bâti et bien équipé, le tout dans un environnement très calme et bucolique (moutons à proximité, vignobles, paysage vallonné ...) .

Le proche village d'Essoyes est également très pittoresque et invite à de belles ballades outre son immanquable visite à la maison de Renoir.

Vacances très reposantes

  • 5 of 5

On a cherché surtout du repos et on l'a bien trouvé. On a été bien acceulli par le propriétaire. La maison a été propre, équipée avec tout ce qu'il faut. Nous avons bien profité du sauna au feu. L'environnement est très calme. Même notre petit chien a trouvé un copain parmi les animaux de la ferme. Nous voudrions toujours revenir!

très agréable : immersion vie simple naturelle

  • 5 of 5

Tout était parfait rien ne manquait. intérieur du chalet comfortable et "cosy", aménagé avec beaucoup de gout . Adoré le sauna au feu de bois. C etait super d aller chercher notre bois à la ferme en haut et d y observer les moutons, chevaux, poules etc... sous le regard du petit chat blanc . Très instructive la visite du chai avec explication processus bio et naturel de champagnisation .

PS a peu de distance le village d'Essoyes est charmant avec sa petite rivière ; ses habitants sont très sociables et souriants
