About Adeline and Nicolas

Working in tourism for years, now as a consultant and a teacher, we use to run an ecological campsite for 3 years. We were the proud winners of a special rate from the traval agency Pharos Reizen as 'one the 3 best campsite for families in europe' between 1500 campsite!

Adeline and Nicolas purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Adeline and Nicolas chose Vivey

We decided to come back in our area to make people discover it as the futur National park of forest in Burgundy and Champagne. This house is exceptional by it situation not far from the village but at the entrance of the forest, that give it a wonderful quietness.

What makes this cottage unique

Space, quietness! We also want to make a special thanks to the people in the village that do not hesitate to invite our client for a coffea or the children that are coming to play in the big garden with the children here!

Lovely Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks and had a great holiday. The owners are really nice people, very kind and helpful. The pool is beautifully clean and it is relaxing having it to yourself. The setting is lovely and very, very quiet - it is about a 25 minute drive from Langres where there are shops and restaurants. There is also another good restaurant only a short drive away. Our daughter (age 5) loved playing in the garden on the trampoline and play equipment, as well as visiting the goats and chickens.

In the accommodation, downstairs there is a kitchen/diner, lounge, shower room and utility room. Upstairs from the lounge is a large bedroom with double bed, single bed and cot. Upstairs off the kitchen there is a smaller double bedroom, an area outside this with a single bed and a bathroom (with bath, but not shower). The photos give a good indication of what the property looks like. The pool is attached to the owners house and you just walk down a little slope to access it.

Some very unique places to visit nearby if the weather is not so good, including the Cutlery Museum at Nogent, the flower mill at Orges (where they have made flowers to decorate the Moulin Rouge costumes and for Chanel) and the MuseoParc Alesia.

A good place to have a holiday if you are looking for somewhere peaceful to relax.

A Thanksgiving well spent

  • 5 of 5

We spent our long Thanksgiving weekend here and loved every minute of it. The owners very friendly and beyond helpful. The cottage is cozy, and the surrounding property is gorgeous. If you are considering this property realize that the pictures on the site don't do it justice. Its way better in person. We have every intention of returning.

Vakantiehuis in het rustig stukje Frankrijk

  • 4 of 5

Een gezellige woning, perfect geschikt als uitvalsbasis voor de drie regio's. Wij hebben het gepresteerd om naar alle belangrijke steden in de buurt af te zakken. Er liggen meer dan voldoende recente folders om de wijde buurt te verkennen.

Het weer was net niet warm genoeg om het zwembad op temperatuur te brengen, maar het was zeker aangenaam na een lange warme dag.

Alles was voorzien zoals beschreven. Een lekkere surprise bij aankomst hebben we met plezier genuttigd.

Wij wonen landelijk in België, maar daar is het echt rustig!

Calme et nature pour vacances en famille

  • 5 of 5

Gite très agréable pour des vacances au calme à la campagne : le jardin partagé avec les propriétaires est ravissant, paradis pour les enfants avec les portiques, trampolines et les animaux (poules et boucs). Le gîte est fonctionnel, rien ne manque.

Les propriétaires ont été charmants et accueillants, un vrai sens de l'hospitalité, tout en restant discrets, et nous ont conseillés sur les visites et activités à faire.

La voiture est indispensable, il n'y a pas de commerces dans le village.

En résumé: Excellent séjour, gîte à recommander.
