Lovely property, perfect for family sharing

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a perfect location for exploring Dinetbatba more relaxed pace, than staying in the Disney hotels, a 10 minute drive? We hired the house with my sister and her 3 children and our parents and there was plenty of room for everyone, and all the 6 children got to share a bedroom together which they loved. The living area layout is perfect to all be together in the evenings and there is plenty of dining space, although I have to admit we did only eat breakfast in the house as we ate out the whole time, we wished we'd have made use of the house more and took advantage of the BBQ and sat in the beautiful outside space, so typically French, and a real sun trap. We would definitely recommend staying at the gite and would love to come again and explore this region of France better.

Just beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a superb 3 night stay at Limodin just after Christmas. We were 4 adults and 5 children (aged between 3yrs and 8 yrs). We were provided with extremely detailed directions to the farmhouse prior to our arrival and met the lovely owner Patricia when we arrived. The fridge had milk, butter, jams in it and bread, tea and coffee were also provided for us. Fresh croissants awaited us on the doorstep the following morning!!

The 5 children stayed in the lovely and spacious 'dormatory end' to the farmhouse that had 5 single beds and plenty of wardrobe space. They also had their own bathroom and WC. The bright and airy open plan lounge and dining area seperates the two blocks of bedrooms, us adults enjoyed the quiet 4 beautifully decorated double bedrooms at the opposite end to the kids dorm, with our own walk in shower room and wc. All wood for the original open fireplace was provided for us which was a lovely treat.

As an added extra we had arranged with Patricia for a 'local' 3 course dinner to be catered and served for us on the first night. We could not recommend this enough, wines, local froie gras, beef bourguignon and cheeses meant we started off the break as a stress free one.

The farmhouse really is one of a kind, set in the beautiful grounds of the 17th century chateau, off road parking and very private grounds for the little ones to run around in. The property was exceptionally clean and tidy and nothing was too much bother for the owner to assist us with, even providing us with some tonics for our gin!!

We did spend a fantastic day at Provins about a 40 minute drive away and I would suggest if youre not dragged to Euro Disney for the entire duration of your stay, you pay it a visit. Funnily (and luckily!) enough our little ones didnt even ask to go to see Mickey, they had so much to entertain themselves with. Clean, tidy, warm, restored to its original standard with some beautiful features.

We really look forward to returning to Limodin, thank you once again Patricia x

Excellent gite for large groups

  • 5 of 5

The owner greeted us on arrival and showed us all the facilities as well as provided us with additional information about catching the train from Tournan to Paris (30 mins direct). Her English was amazing and both her and her husband were very friendly and helpful. The gite itself was beautiful, well heated and full of character - certainly big enough for our 2 families! We were also very happy with the location as we drove to Disney within 15 mins, caught the train to Paris, visited Provins and even had a day trip to Versailles (a long way but worth it!). I would be more than willing to recommend this gite to anyone that needed a lovely, large property near to Paris.

Ideal base for Disneyland and Paris

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal location for our three families with 8 children (21 to 1) to stay on our recent visit to Disneyland. The owners made sure we were settled in and knew what we needed to know about facilities in the surrounding area. We arrived on a Sunday to find all supermarkets closed, but the owners told us of the little shop in the village that had all we required till later on the Monday. Although the door lock was broken on arrival, it was repaired the next day. The gite was well equipped, all that was missing were tea towels in the kitchen and hand towels in the bathrooms. The property was clean on arrival. It is a short drive to Disneyland which is easily accessible, and the train form Tournan has you in Paris in around 30 mins, but don't try to park at the station on a weekday, but the surrounding side streets have adequate areas to park. A very enjoyable holiday in a charming location that I would recommend to any large family or families.

A charming site, also for large families.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our children and grandchildren (14 persons!) to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We found everything as advertised and the host was very friendly and helful. From La Houssay we visited Disneyland (by car) as well as Paris (by train). The nearby station at Tournan-en-Brie takes you to the centre of Paris in 45 minutes. This is a place we can recommend!
