Amazing time! The home is so well equipped, clean, and comfortable. The grounds are perfect for a beautiful walk or just sitting quietly to read a book. Our family of 8 functioned fine, plenty of room. The town is very charming. We had everything we needed. You will not be disappointed.
We had a wonderful time at this beautiful house in an idyllic location.
Lazy days spent fishing and canoeing on the lake, playing golf on the 3 hole golf course, relaxing by the pool and watching movies in the basement cinema. Not to mention walks around the grounds and fun for the kids on the trampoline, swings and in the tree house.
The description was spot on, the owner was really helpful before we arrived and the house is managed by an English speaking manager who is available if there are any queries during your stay.
We have already recommended Brechamps to our friends and family - it would be perfect for families with children who are old enough to know not to run into the lake and who are able to benefit from all the active pursuits available in the grounds, whilst the adults enjoy the view!
We did have plans to visit local villages and Paris, but in the end we only left the property once during the whole week to stock up on supplies at the local supermarket!
The house itself is well maintained shabby chic. Just don't put too many appliances on at once, otherwise you are plunged into darkness! The only fault with the property is that the swimming pool isn't heated, but we still swam every day at the end of August.
Charming Country House
Large country home near the village of Brechamps
Gorgeous pond and gardens
Beautiful, large home that can accommodate many guests in style
Only negative - do not more than two appliances at once or the power will go out (e.g., oven and hair dryer)
Like being in your own private country
We were welcomed by the very lovely caretaker and his wife. Their English was not that great, but with hands and feet all worked out :).
The garden is indescribably beautiful. The view on the garden is amazing. The garden is very well taken care of and is very tastefully done. The house is big and nicely furnished. The movie hang out room is very nice for evenings or when you want to escape the outdoor. There are a lot of dvd's, but you can also bring your own. I don't know how it works with connecting a computer to the beamer... :p.
We brought our puppy and she had the best time of her life. Could run everywhere freely, without us being scared she'd run away. Beside the lake there is a small river where we could play with her. If you have dog who is a swimmer, the lake is also really great for a swim.
The area is very relaxed and not so many crazy things to do. But we went horseback riding, very close to the house. And there are I think 100 of golf clubs you can use to play on the field. And the caretaker of the house reserved a cute restaurant for us. And in no time you're in the business of Paris, if you'd like to escape the relaxing country.
