  • 5 of 5

What can I say about this trip ... there is so many things good about it , Lets start with the house !!

- Amazing and very spacious open area

- Living room is very comfortable !!

- Kitchen is quite handy ..

- Toilets is very good e very interested too ..

About the rooms ...

- very cosy

-Bed is excellent size

Outside things to do ..

we have loved the idea to have to go up to the farm and get some wood for burning , animals are so kind too .

about the sauna ..

we have spent so much time having sauna in this place like never , its a proper sauna and you have to put some wood to burn and keeping very hot ( we have reached at 100" c ) amazing thing ..

Everyday we had some jogging around the field ( vineyard) and ate a lot grapes too !! ( Dont tell Mr . Mrs Ruppert okay )

You must ask for taste session ( Wine) .

Well !! I wont tell more otherwise it will spoil it .

Honestly it was one of the top 3 best trips ever ..

Mr Ruppert and Mrs Ruppert are very kind and very helpfull ..

we made our trip from Scotland ( Whitburn ) , it a bit far away , but it was worth it !!

I hope we can return to this place once again soon ..

Thank you very very very much for all Mr. Mrs. Ruppert

Well done you all !!!

Godbye !!

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.

Une bonne pause

  • 5 of 5

Nous avions besoin de deux jours loin du tumulte de la ville et pour le coup on a pas était déçus.

La maison est douillette et l’architecture est impressionnante, nous sommes fan de maison en rondins.

Il y avait assez de place pour nos trois enfants et pour nous deux.

L’absence de wifi n’est pas un problème, cela nous permet de prendre plus de tout pour des jeux de société ou pour se ballade.

Le sauna est vraiment le plus de cet maison.

Merci pour l’accueil souriant et chaleureux et à très bientôt.

Un séjour parfait!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 2 nuits dans le chalet n°2 de Gérard: un vrai bonheur!

Le chalet est très cosy, très confortable et très bien équipé: on s'est tout de suite senti à l'aise dans notre petit cocon. Gérard est un hôte très sympathique!

Nous recommandons sans hésiter!

Le petit plus: la possibilité de rendre visite à quelques chevaux, vaches et moutons!
