Cutest Gite Imaginable!!
Absolutely charming Gite, lovely host. Very well located to tour all Verdun/Meuse-Argonne battlefield sites/memorials. Very beautiful countryside, especially now with leaves changing. Only drawback is the general depopulation problem of the Meuse region-you have to drive 5-10k to find a restaurant or grocery store. If you self cater it is perfect.
Wonderful Authentic Home
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Annie's home in Rarécourt! It is exactly as pictured, quaint, cozy and an authentic slice of the French countryside. Although a bit bit rustic in character, it has every convenience that a couple or family would need. The town is convenient to the the A4, and less than 30 minutes from Verdun and may of the WWI memorial sites. It less than 1 hour from Reims and Metz, which make for great day trips. We were welcomed with home grown apples and paté... both delicious! We would definitely recommend and stay here again. Thanks Annie!
Typical French eclectic, great find
Great place and lovely host and daughter speaks English which helped us out, phew.
We loved it.
Little village tucked out of the way with its own boulangerie, and local sells eggs. Had a great atmosphere too.
Close to a few large towns (30-45 mins drive) one being Verdun. Countless war sites, if that's your thing, many free and some hidden away in the forests. Amazing sights and very interesting.
Vauquios Hill is a must visit, a town and a hillside blown away never to be rebuilt.
Much is dominated with the American/French of WW1 and the town Châtel Chehery commemorate Sgt York every year.
Close to Champagne and if you want to travel Metz, Nancy, Luxembourg and Belgium.
The accommodation was good, had everything you needed. Courtyard out back for BBQ.
The upstairs would be out of bounds for those a little unsure on balance as the stairs are steep and narrow but otherwise a great find.
I thInk we will be returning. Still so much to explore
We had a wonderful time fantastic gite lots of ww1 sites to see .
Avec mes amitités
We stayed at Chez Mathilde for a week in June. The cottage is divine. Loads of room, with lovely period features of the 17th century property. Annie lives next door and was so very welcoming to us even though we speak no French. Annie's daughter however lives in the property the other side of cottage and she speaks fluent English and was so helpful to us with advising places to visit. The cottage is well equipped with everything you will need and also has a nice courtyard garden which was lovely to spend time to eat meals and relax.
The area of Rarecourt is very peaceful with the only real sound being the chiming clock of the nearby church. Verdun itself is a lovely place with many cafes and restaurants beside the river. It is also only a short drive to many WW1 sites. My advice would be to not spend all your time on the heavily advertised main attractions. There is so much more in the area that will not have the obligatory coach parties turning up to. I would recommend the butte de vauquois, le main de massiges (both of which are free to enter) and the privately owned 14-18 museum at Romagne-sous-montfaucon.
This cottage is a perfect find in a lovely area. Many thanks for a wonderful stay.
Thank you for your message
What an amazing place.
The gite was stunningly decked out with lots of the original features but was also extremely comfortable and homely. We loved our stay here and would definitely go back. Madame Amory and her daughter were so helpful and friendly. THANKYOU for a fantastic stay.
we are in a pretty village about 20 km from Verdun great historical center on the first world war. But do not forget that the forest of Argonne with its ancient oaks is just nearby.
