About Green Nathalie

As part of a family carrying values such as nature and physical activites outdoors, we have had the chance during our week-ends and holidays to renovated this old abandonned farm thanks to the engineering skills of my father. Our family is also very international so that this warm and cosy place enabled us to organise family gathering in order to reunite all generations around special events.

Green Nathalie purchased this House in 1972

Why Green Nathalie chose Denonville

Therefore this place is full of shared joyful moments. I am still remembering our red cheeks after such an oxygen intake in the country as we were running after the ball in the huge garden all afternoon, the cherries picked in the trees, and the flowers basket from the woods around. We wanted to open this property to other families so that they could also rely on a peaceful and joyful place so close to Paris. We added some features espacially for kids such as little animals, and different games outside. Thanks to the rentals, we continue to improve the quality of the services each year.

What makes this House unique

Every family unit is able to enjoy some privacy, while being able to come together in the biggest gite for meals or special moments. The various outdoor spaces enable everyone to take a breathe of fresh air, and for children to remain in a safe environnement.

                                                              Great for family gatherings

                                                              VickyHampshire

                                                              This property is made up of three gites that acommodated 17 of us (4 families and grandmother). We never felt over crowded and the space available is so huge that I often had to hunt for family members.

                                                              Two of the gites have new and modern interiors. These were great. The biggest gite is described as rustic, but desperately needs some TLC. People from this side of the property preferred to use the shower in the newer gite next door as it was far more inviting.

                                                              I would recommend this property due to its sheer size being able to accommodate such a large group, as long as people are aware that one section is much older and does let down the rest of the property.

                                                              Oh, and Disney is 1h30 away!

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              It is true that the property is so big that there are still a few points which deserves to be renovated, but the reasonable price quoted enables many people to enjoy this place... It does not however allow us to renovate all at once. However, many improvement are implemented every year and indeed the one bathroom downstairs is next on the list (out of 4 bathrooms at disposal). Obviously, the houses which are brand new from 4 years ago are much more moddern that the traditionnal farm... All our other clients have underlined how clean the place is, and I feel that the appreciation here above regarding TLC is quite exagerate. Nevertheless, we welcome every comment and we will continue to improve our services. I appreciate that the grade given was still 4 out of 5, so I assume that our efforts were still much appreciated.

                                                              Excellent séjour !

                                                              Excellent séjour de deux semaines avec tous nos enfants et petits-enfants en 2015 et 16 ! Jardin étendu, calme campagnard, équipement de qualité : piscine, trampoline, vélos…

                                                              Un accueil très chaleureux et un gîte très agréable où tout le monde a son espace.

                                                              Les enfants ont profité très largement des jeux extérieurs (vélos, table de ping-pong, trampoline et structure de jeux) vraiment idéal pour un séjour entre amis ou en famille.

                                                              Le gîte est très bien équipé et ne manque de rien, nous le conseillons vivement!

Nous avons été charmés par l'endroit, par l'accueil du gérant, sa gentillesse et sa disponibilité. Les 3 gîtes (les Mures, les Fraises et les Framboises) sont tous parfaitement équipés avec des ustensiles de cuisine, lave vaisselle, grill pain, cafetière, ... nous avons même trouvé un mixeur. Les lits sont très confortables. Le lieu est sécurisé pour les enfants avec un jardin fermé, le gîte des fraises disposent de barrières d'escalier. Nous n'avons même pas eu le temps de profiter de toutes les possibilités données par ces gîtes (les vélos, la table de ping pong, la piscine, trampoline et balançoires pour les enfants). Nous nous sommes promis d'y retourner.

Encore merci à Nathalie et son compagnon!
