Had a relaxing few days

  • 5 of 5

Had a great few days here with Kids & In Laws, lovely peaceful place which was a good base for exploring the area, a couple of minor niggles about the level of equipment in the kitchen, stupid things like no normal kettle & we couldn't find a bread knife, sounds stupid but when you're buying lovely fresh baguettes and struggling to cut them without destroying them! But none of this really impacted on us having a great stay.

Weekje Frankrijk in het prachtige oude boerderij in Englancourt

  • 5 of 5

Ons verblijf in de 'Fermette' van de heer en mevrouw Dupont:

We verbleven hier met ons gezin met drie kinderen in de leeftijd van 7 tot 16 jaar. Onze jongste kids hebben zich heerlijk vermaakt in de tuin en onze oudste kon zich prima vermaken met een boek en heerlijk luieren op de ligstoelen en genieten van de zon. We hebben een kasteel bezocht en het 'Familistère' van Godin in Guise. In Laon hebben we oa. de gigantische kathedraal bekeken. Hier waren genoeg bezienswaardigheden en heerlijke terrasjes! Ook vielen we nog met onze neus in de boter bij een klein marktje een paar dorpjes verderop, zodat we ons konden mengen in het dagelijkse leven van de Fransen, wat een hartelijke mensen!

Verder over het verblijf:

Het huisje was heel netjes! Om het binnen koel te houden waren er luiken die we dicht konden doen. Voor de ramen zitten horren, zodat het heerlijk kon doorwaaien zonder dat er vliegen binnen kwamen.

Het huisje is heel compleet met vaatwasser, oven en wasmachine. De houtkachel hebben we ook nog een avond aangehad, toen het wat koeler werd. Heerlijk sfeertje!!

De achtertuin heeft een prachtig uitzicht over het dal en je zit geheel prive, niemand die even bij je kan gluren. De 'voor'tuin is ook een heerlijk plekje om 's avonds even te relaxen met het uitzicht naar de prachtige kerk en tuin. De auto kan op eigen terrein staan en 's avonds kun je de hekken op slot doen, zodat er niemand om het huis kan spoken. Ideaal!

Hartelijk bedankt voor ons verblijf in jullie prachtige fermette!!

Heerlijk huisje met veel privacy

  • 5 of 5

Heel fijn huisje met alle comfort. Twee slaapkamers, daar tussenin de badkamer en een complete grote woonkeuken. Woonkamer met bank en 2 fauteuils. Prachtig vergezicht vanuit de zeer besloten achtertuin. De achtertuin heeft veel zon en als laatste schijnt de zon nog in de voortuin waar ook een zitje is. Prima ontvangst en uitleg. Klein gehucht met bakker op 2 kilometer. Echt iets voor rustzoekers.
