About CHARLOTTE WATERS
My husband and I bought the cottage in 2007 as our holiday home. We have undertaken extensive renovations to make it the beautifully rustic warm cottage it is today. Since 2007 our family has grown with the addition of 1 child and 3 dogs and the cottage continues to suit everyone. 2017 saw the construction of a new above above ground wooden (which we plan to have available for guests from May to September)

Even better than it looks on the website
We returned a few days ago from a wonderful two weeks at Mont Remin Cottage, which is everything it says on the website and more. Very spacious, comfortable, well equipped - in fact, everything you want of a home from home on holiday. The second double room with ensuite and dressing area is self-contained, giving welcome privacy to our student son. Tammie the dog loved the spacious garden, especially enjoying the shade beneath the lavendar bushes. The countryside around Veuxhaulles-sur-Aube is beautiful and varied, with plenty of enjoyable and interesting walks. Very grateful for generous welcome pack on arrival after 5hr drive from Calais and thanks to Charlotte for even booking Tammie in with the vet in Chatillon for return journey. Heartily recommend Mont Remin Cottage for long or short stay.
Lovely little cottage in rural surroundings.
We spent a very relaxing week here. A real home from home with everything you need including a toaster! (very rare in French properties). We visited Troyes and rented a little boat on Lac Amance - great fun. A dog's paradise with so many lovely walks on your doorstep. If you are looking for a quiet escape from it all, we recommend this place.
Comfortable and cosy - car essential
Lovely cottage in a rural location. Great for families - a car with a good satnav is a must
Beautiful, well equipped house in rural, peaceful location
The house is set at the end of a very quiet village. It is a lovely family home and has everything needed for a relaxing break. It has plenty of room - we went with two teenage daughters. The garden is large and secure-we took our dog and it was perfect for him. The pool was lovely for cooling dips and we loved the covered patio (with lights for night time) which meant we could be outside pretty much all the time - even during a storm. We didn't use the lounge/Dining area at all but i'm sure the stove would be lovely in cooler periods.
What a wonderful house in the French countryside
We stayed here for a few days en route to the French Alps and also a few days en route coming back. We could not have chosen a better house to stay in, it was comfortable, made you feel at home and was lovely and clean. The garden was perfect for our dog, completely enclosed so no worry about him getting out, lovely country walks straight from the door which was a real bonus. The house has been beautifully renovated and the 2 sided wood burner between the living and dining room was a fantastic feature which made for cosy relaxing evenings drinking wine and eating good food.
Charlotte, the owner was ab fab and a real joy to deal with, communication with her was amazing, immediate responses.
Would not hesitate to come back here again or to recommend it to anyone else.
A home in rural France with some Brisitsh creature comforts
The house is very discreet and comfortable with pretty well all the conveniences you would wish for in your own holiday home. The bedrooms are all very comfortable and the living/eating/cooking spaces are all clean, well cared for and practical so they can be enjoyed by the family without being terrified of touching of things. We ate indoors and out and everything worked perfectly.We had two little dogs who settled in instantly, their only problem being that their legs were too short for one of the steps, a very minor issue indeed and hardly the fault of the house owners! The neighbours were very French but also very pleasant and forgave our Franglais with good humour.
Locally the shopping is pretty limited so planning ahead is necessary, but there is a good range of varied towns and villages within striking distance where everything can be found.
The weather was mostly very kind, and we made trips to the lakes, Nigloland (compares well with with UK theme parks), Troyes, Chatillon (nice spring and excellent museum there, also very good vets for the dogs complusory visit), went bubbly tasting, did trout fishing in the village (you WILL catch a fish) and loads of other stuff. One final thing, if the night sky is clear, the stars and Milky Way are just incredibly bright compared to the UK, AND we saw loads of shooting stars. An excellent family holiday
40 minutes from Troyes centre, 2.5 hours from Paris and 1 hour from Dijon.
