Had a wonderful holiday staying at this lovely cottage.
The house is everything you would expect of an old French cottage and more. The gardens are beautiful, lovely on a warm summer evening to sit outside and enjoy a meal with your family. The pool is a great size and with the heating lovely to use on the cooler days, on the hotter days it provides welcome relief and a place for the kids to play. The local area is quiet with some nice walks, we took our dog and he enjoyed roaming the fields and the woods surrounding the small village. There are 3 or 4 supermarkets within easy reach for your shopping needs. The location provides the best of both worlds quiet seclusion to get away from everything but still within easy reach of Paris, Reims, Epernay etc for days out. The kids loved the trips to Disney and Asterix theme parks, both within one hours drive. The house is charming and comfortable with all the amenities you would expect. Plenty of space for larger families or groups. Ines the owner was most helpful when needed and pleasant to deal with. I would recommend a stay at this property to anyone and would gladly return for another holiday.
Je ne peux que remercier toute la famille pour leur délicatesse, bonne disposition, gentillesse.... Respectueuse des lieux et de l'environnement.
Un grand merci et ce sera avec un vrai plaisir que je mettrai la maison à leur disposition.

Lovely traditional family house with beautiful garden and pool!
We had a fabulous holiday here! Inès was extremely helpful! Lovely house with everything that you need! Wonderful gardens and heated pool! Very good location for accessing Paris! Short drive to the station and the bakers and supermarket! Very picturesque scenery! Entrance to the property is through a gate that reminded me of "the secret garden" we will definitely be back! But next time will come after Disney to relax! Can highly recommend!
Il est pour moi un réel plaisir d'accueillir des vacanciers respectueux, joyeux et très sympathiques.
Debbie et sa famille en font partie
La maison est certainement pleine de charme et le jardin paisible, mais ils y sont pour beaucoup.
En respectant les lieux, l'environnement, les consignes demandées pour le bien être de chacun, tout cela participe vraiment à la tranquillité de ce lieu rempli de charme.
Merci encore à tous
A Wonderful Holiday
Briarde is a beautiful house in an ideal location. The gardens, pool and facilities were all first class, set in a quiet, rural area, but really handy for trips to Paris and Disneyland.
The owner is lovely - friendly, helpful and attentive. We didn't have to call on her at all during our stay since everything was perfect, but loved seeing her on our arrival and departure. She looked after us well and left a lovely bottle of champagne in the fridge for us. She also encouraged the children to help themselves to fruit from the cherry tree.
This is a wonderful house and we hope to return really soon.
Je ne peux que m'en réjouir de l'appréciation si sympathique et je les remercie très sincèrement.
Ce fut pour moi un plaisir de les avoir reçu dans la maison pendant deux semaines.
Respectueux, calmes, souriants et des enfants pleins de vie et d'énergie.
Revenez quand vous voulez, ce sera un énorme plaisir de vous recevoir à nouveau.
Peace and tranquility
What a fabulous house! We stayed for the week with our 2 kids aged 3 and 5 years old. The garden is a fantastic playground for them and they both loved the pool which was lovely and warm. The garden is totally private and the area is very quiet and peaceful and totally relaxing.
The house was clean and well equipped. The dishwasher was a holiday must have as no one wants to do washing up on holiday. The owner was wonderful and showed us around the house on are arrival. My French isn't great and she doesn't speak English, but with Google Translate you can get by in any language and with the WiFi you can easily email one another if there are any problems.
The house is well situated about 25 minutes from Eurodisney and the train from the local town (5 minutes drive) gets you to Paris in about 40 minutes. You are also about 10 minutes drive from the Champagne vineyards which is well worth a visit.
If I had to make a negative comment, it would be the lack of facilities in walking distance. But, if there was somewhere to walk to , you wouldn't get such a peaceful setting. Once the kids were in bed, my wife and I were able to sit quietly in the garden and enjoy the calm.
Lovely little pocket of relaxation
The villa is well situated, 50 minutes drive from the airport, 30 minutes from Eurodisney and 10 minutes from the local supermarket. From the moment we arrived the owner, Ines, made us feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble, including buying us a new bath plug when we couldn't find the original. The villa and pool were clean, well kept and comfortable and the whole family had a lovely time.
We stayed in a family group of 5 adults and two small children (4 and 18 months). When we first arrived I was worried that the villa wasn't totally child friendly but as long as we kept the toddler away from the stairs (standard practice anyway) we didn't have any problems.
We spent a few days at Disneyland but to be totally honest we could have happily spent the entire week just hanging around the cottage and playing in the garden and pool which are very private and with enough trees/bushes to allow a game of hide and seek while being protected enough by surrounding hedges and lockable gates to make sure we didn't have to worry about anyone wandering off.
We've already discussed returning next year and would happily recommend the villa to any family or friends wanting to stay in France for a relaxing break.
I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for somewhere with a busy evening scene - the villa is situated in a quiet hamlet and I don't think it would be appreciated if you had any loud parties, if you're looking to relax though then I can't imagine you wouldn't like this villa.
The place was very nice and quiet. The surroundings was amazing and peaceful. The big shopping center were not that far that you can get your groceries. The kids enjoyed the pool very much especially of the good and warm weather during our stay. The house was very clean and so as the pool. The owner- Ines was very helpful and welcoming.
This place is highly recommended for those who want to have a good peaceful family break. Train stations were very close should you wish not to drive to Paris-only 40 mins away. Disneyland is only 30 mins by car.
Overall, it was a great stay for everyone of us and most importantly for the kids.
