Clean, comfortable, well-maintained facility!
The Honey Cottage was very well-appointed, with a full kitchen, helpful kitchen appliances, and a generous amount of crockery, glassware, and cooking pans. It made it very easy for us to enjoy some meals "in." The pleasant outdoor patio space was a great place to enjoy a bottle of wine and watch the sun set. Beds were numerous and comfortable; bathrooms were clean and convenient. Wifi enhanced the stay. The owners were welcoming and very helpful. We experienced a little confusion in trying to operate the washing machine, but that was because we were not familiar with the make/model--we sorted it out quickly enough. Great stay, really made our holiday in France perfect for our family of four!
Thank you very much. Maybe see you later.

A delightful stay
This spacious gite really helped us to enjoy a wonderful week in the Ardennes. The owners are so hospitable and very approachable and yet the position of the property gives you privacy and overlooks the countryside. It is isolated and therefore ideal for a quiet, rural break yet also perfect as a base to do much exploring. We managed to swim in a local lake, take a trip into Luxembourg and Germany, visit a local animal/bird wildlife park, experience French markets, tour Sedan castle and do the battlefields on our return. It was also an added to bonus to stay when Jacques hosted an open afternoon to see his honey production! Would highly recommend this gite - excellent value for money.
Recommended for families - very friendly hosts
We stayed in the house for 10 days and we were very satisfied:
The house matches the descriptions, the area is beautiful and interesting (especially lots to see from 1. world war), the house was clean and everything in order.
There is a bakery and a small grocery 5 min drive from the house, and Vouziers (15 m drive) contains all shops required for normal shopping.
The house is located in a small and quiet city, and a car is required.
Last but not least the host couple is extremely nice and flexible.
An enjoyable, tidy and well equipped cottage.
We were warmly welcomed by Jacques and Jonelle, and thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay here. The property is well equipped, spacious and tidy, and the downstairs en suite bedroom much appreciated. Highly recommended.

recreëren in een bijna leeg landschap
In de streek Argonne wonen weinig mensen en zie je weinig toeristen. Dat maakt deze streek aantrekkelijk voor rustzoekers. Uitkijkend over het glooiende landschap, bedekt met bossen, akkers, koolzaadvelden, hoor niets anders dan de vogels. Het vakantiehuis Honey Cottage is een prachtig ruim vakantieverblijf en van alle gemakken voorzien. De vriendelijke en bescheiden eigenaar Jacques staat altijd klaar om het zijn gasten naar de zin te maken.Het was een prima keuze om hier te verblijven...
Belle vue campagnarde !
Le souvenir que je garde de ce séjour, c'est cette magnifique vue verdoyante de notre lit, fenêtre grande ouverte, au lever du soleil. C'était magique !
Le logis est agréable, confortable et conçu pour accueillir plusieurs familles. L'équipement pour une personne en fauteuil roulant est parfait. Dommage qu'au premier jour, une fête en voisinage proche a quelque peu terni le calme des lieux
