Wonderful cottage in the heart of the village

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this beautiful cottage, which has been beautifully and thoughtfully restored. The cottage is spread over three floors and feels very spacious. It has everything you could need for a short or longer stay, with beds, towels etc of high quality which all makes for a comfortable time.

The cottage is in the centre of the village - next to the boulangerie, close to restaurants and cafes and a (very) short walk from the river and the castle.

Finally, special thanks to Simon and Dianne the owners and restorers of this cottage for such a warm and informative welcome.

Wonderful historic property

  • 5 of 5

We spent a couple of nights here and found the property to be charming. Very old and sympathetically restored to a high standard.

Simon, the property owner was very helpful and allowed us to keep our bikes in the property. The property location is just about perfect. Literally 3 steps from a very good baker and a few more to a local shop, restaurants and bars. Easy parking (free) about 50m away.

Beautiful place to stay, both the house and its location. Great value for money. Be back next year!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to stay! The open fireplace with plenty of firewood included was our favourite part! Comfortable beds and plenty of towels supplied. The house was nice clean and we found everything we needed for cooking etc. There were plenty of places nearby to eat and drink also. Overall we absolutely loved the house and really enjoyed our stay. We’re looking forward to our next visit!

Wunderschöne Wohnung in bezauberndem Dorf

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist der Wahnsinn! Antik eingerichtet und urgemütlich. Verteuil ist ein wirklich hübscher Ort mit Chateau, Fluss, alter Mühle... einfach malerisch! Simon und Dianne sind unglaublich herzlich und hilfsbereit. Es war ein fast perfekter Urlaub. Etwas störend leider war, dass die engem Gassen die Geräusche von Autos etc. kanalisieren und es daher manchmal etwas laut war.
