Double house with front garden, dining kitchen and studio apartment at the edge of the village
We are located in a nice little French farm town called Grand-Failly near the border of Belgium and Luxembourg. The city of Verdun and the battlefields of the First World War can be reached within an hour. The cities of Metz and Luxenburg are also an hour's drive away. Our house was the house of the miller of the former oil mill from formerly rapeseed and nuts to oil processed by hydroelectric power. The house is on the edge of the village.
What you rent is a separate part of our house with its own entrance. This old house is along with the part where the mill was the oldest part of the house. You enter the kitchen which is heated with its own wood stove. In addition there is a large sitting-bedroom with a queen-size bed, a seating area with a triple sofa and two armchairs, a bathroom with shower and toilet and this sitting room is also heated with a wood burning stove. Any experience with wood stoves is very convenient! Wood for the stoves has already laid Hans.
There is no television available, but if desired, I have a screen with built-in DVD player that you can borrow from me. And soon we have an internet radio with bleutooth function!
In the kitchen a fridge with freezer, gas stove with oven and microwave. Additionally, all you need for pots and pans, and if it's not you can borrow it from me.: o). There is salt and pepper, but also dried herbs from the garden and in the growing season you can get fresh herbs from the garden. If the chickens want to go there are eggs and there is always a jam of jam from their own garden in the fridge. There is ample parking space for multiple cars and a shed where you can safely park your bikes. At the door is a solid picnic table for an outdoor breakfast. In the shed you will find a parasol and some easy garden chairs.
The part of the house you live is separated by two doors from the part where we live. You have your own front door and also a side door to the garage where you can park your bike. You have access to the rented rooms, as well as the garden at the front of the house. The use of the backyard o. A. With brook and dining table is almost always ok but in consultation. For your car there is the off road parking.
Although it is a lower house, wheelchair access is not easy. There is a staircase with three steps to enter the house, and from the living room to the shower is a big threshold. There is no threshold between the kitchen and the sitting room.
Unfortunately, no furry friends are allowed in the house, in connection with family members who are allergic to cats and dog hairs.
We are a Dutch couple and have lived in Grand Failly for over 20 years. We know the area well and can help you plan a walk or outing. We are generally at home, so we are here to help with everything you need. We speak French, English, German and Dutch.

cosy and idyllic
Although we were there for one night only - we had a great time! The cottage was nice and warm on arrival - the woodburner gave a lovely heat and made the place very inviting. The whole place was very comfortable, the lounge very cosy - the kitchen fully equipped, a very comfortable bed and all very quiet and peaceful, causing us to sleep longer than usual :-). There were fresh eggs and jam in the fridge and also fresh herbs / herb tea from the garden. We had a great walk exploring the surroundings and definitely bring our bikes on a future occasion. Our hosts were very accommodating and encouraged us to ask for anything if needed. They could not have done more really. Would recommend this place anytime - definitely worth 5 stars
Thank you Christa it was great having you over and you are welcome to come back with your bikes any time!
Mikki's house is located in Grand-Failly, Lorraine, France. Grand Failly is a small rural village located in northeastern France. It is ideally located for visiting the battlefields, cemeteries, disappeared villages and commemorative monuments of the First World War and the city of Verdun. On the edge of Grand Failly there is a memorial to commemorate Bastogne (December 1944). The dead of this terrible battle were brought to Grand Failly during the battle and temporarily buried, most Americans. There is also the cozy city of Reims with beautiful cathedral and the modern museum center Pompidou. There are also Belgian attractions such as the Abbey of Orval, Bouillon and Torgny and the beautiful country and city of Luxembourg. Also, for example, visitors come to a concert in Esch-sur-Alzette, which is a 45-minute drive away. Grand Failly and the surrounding area are beautiful for walking and cycling. What makes this part of France special also are the birds of trek. The most striking are the cranes, they are resting on their trek in this area and foraging here in large numbers on their travels to and from the high North and Africa. Migration to the north usually begins at the end of February. Migration to the south is less predictable and, depending on weather, can take place from late October to early December. Nowadays there are also groups in winter who do not need to go further south. For them it is warm enough here! Transport Luxembourg (60 km) is the nearest airport, Longuyon (8km) is the nearest train station. To fully enjoy the surroundings, a car or bicycle is recommended.
