                                                          Everything was so welcoming - especially the pack of wine, milk, bread and all the essentials. All so clean and tidy and all we needed to enjoy a family break. Brilliant

                                                          Thank you pleased to hear you enjoyed your celebration with your family.

                                                          Beautiful place made even better with wonderful groundspersonnel

                                                          Julieanne S.Tampa, FL

                                                          Stayed for just shy of three weeks and it was a cold snap, record snow, lots of rain and ice. Nothing diminished the beauty of the grounds, the historical significance of the property and comforts of home. Other than no tumble dryer, nothing to mention negative. Sharon and Patrick are assets to the owners. They take amazing care of the place and were helpful after it snowed. Definitely recommend this property to everyone. Would come back in the summer to really enjoy the grounds.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Thank you for your lovely comments, hopefully you'll visit again but in the Summer months next time.

                                                          Great house, beautiful location

                                                          john h.

                                                          The lodge is one of a small number of beautifully renovated properties surrounding an old cobbled courtyard. There are lovely grounds, including a river and a mill stream - ideal for pooh sticks. We were a family of 7 adults and 5 children. The accommodation worked brilliantly for us. Having resident managers on site was a great help. It is close to Versailles ( 30 minute drive) and an easy train journey from the centre of Paris. Good supermarket nearby (5 minute drive). Gif is a pretty, unspoilt French village with traditional bakers and butchers. Excellent stay.

                                                          Fantastic place for our Family Christmas

                                                          Liz C.

                                                          The place was in an absolutely beautiful setting. The hosts were very helpful and looked up local attractions/shops/bars and answered any questions we had. They also provided a lovely big Christmas tree, which made our Christmas away from home even more special. There was a welcome pack of bread, cheese and wine for our arrival, which was a lovely touch. The rooms were stunning and very much catered for our needs. Overall a fantastic experience. I would definitely recommend.

                                                          Excellent. Thank you.

                                                          Great location. Super accommodation. Good base for Paris, Versailles and Disney. Lovely village and special mention for pizza restaurant just a short walk away, particularly after a tiring day. Excellent for kids.

                                                          Beautiful house in beautiful setting

                                                          Charlotte B.

                                                          A group of us stayed here for 3 weeks as we were working nearby and we could not have chosen a better place to stay! It was a lovely house to come back to after a long day at work. The setting is simply beautiful with lovely outdoor space for barbeques. The rooms are done to a high standard, whilst keeping the traditional feel to the building.

                                                          The house is set in a lovely area with a pizzeria within walking distance and a very short car journey to the centre of Gif where several restaurants could be found.

                                                          The only bad bit was that we had to go to work and couldn't spend more time at the house!!
