Fabulous property in lovely village
We had an absolutely fantastic week. The gite is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need. The rooms were spacious (the photos really don’t do it justice!) The pool was super, with plenty of furniture for eating and sunbathing.
Sarah and Jonathan were super hosts, they were a wealth of information and nothing was too much trouble.
We had a brilliant week relaxing and enjoying the sunshine. Plenty to do locally if you choose, or alternatively to sit and relax in total peace and quiet!
A perfect place to recharge and relax
Sarah and Jonathan are perfect hosts who provide you with everything to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Their local knowledge is invaluable to allow you to make informed choices of things to do. Equally the gite is furnished and equipped to such a high standard that a day at the gite is a perfect way to spend a day. The pool was well used and the locality makes it great for walking and cycling. The gite is very clean and the welcome pack on arrival along with welcome drinks and nibbles by the pool after you have settled in make for instant relaxation. If travelling from the UK the journey is very easy once through the tunnel. There are shops nearby an excellent butchers in the next village and a boulangerie van each morning (apart from one) and Sarah and Jonathan are happy to order for you if early mornings are not what you desire. BBQ provided and local supermarket (5 miles) has very good fish and meat for cooking on it. Champagne vineyards nearby provide tastings (mostly free) so make sure you have room to bring some back. Also a local Gamay very good, along with honey from the butcher. Would not hesitate in returning.
Lovely Comfortable Gite and Great Hosts
We just love this beautiful gite - this year proved to be a challenge for our lovely hosts Sarah and Jonathan. Because just before we arrived the village - including the gite - was hit by a flash flood!
Sarah rang to tell us and we were given the option to still come or change the date - we knew that if it was too bad there was no way would they have allowed us to come over. So we carried on as usual - they worked so hard to make sure it was as good as it could be - we knew we wouldn't have the pool and some of the kitchen appliances.
It meant we had to eat out a bit more ( what a hardship!?)
We still had a lovely time in the gite and in the surrounding area as normal.
Circe spent a lot of time with us when we were in, bless her!
The clear-up of their own farmhouse was put on a back burner whilst they made sure we were okay in the gite (we were first ones in after the flood)
We appreciated all you did Sarah, Jonathan and Circe and hope to see you next year.
This is such a lovely gite and so well equipped - the area is lovely too, but the main thing is that it is so peaceful and relaxing.
Thank you all for your particularly hard work this year.
Beautiful, Welcoming Gite and Lovely Hosts
The Gite is absolutely beautiful, spotlessly clean and so warm and welcoming! Beautifully equipped, the attention to detail is just amazing!
A Welcome Pack is provided and Sarah very kindly put in special things as one of us is dairy intolerant, a lovely touch, as we usually have to go out and track soya milk down. It meant that we could just unpack, settle down and relax, without worrying about going out for food the first evening.
Sarah and Jonathan and of course Circe have created a lovely peaceful haven for their visitors.
We spent a lovely week there and would have happily stayed on if we had not had commitments at home! The weather was very unkind to us but with the underfloor heating ( that Jonathan put on on straight away for us), plus a wood burner we were snug and cosy.
We just cannot speak highly enough of the gite and are looking forward to returning, hopefully next year.
The photos do not do it justice, it is incredibly spacious inside, the pool looked lovely, we just wished it had been warmer so that we could have used it!
But hopefully next time and there will a next time as soon as we can!
An excellent position in the small village and such a lovely area, we need much more time to explore properly.
The area is beautiful, the forests are spectacular and I imagine that in the autumn the colours are amazing, the leaves were just starting to turn in places, but we had to come home!!
Thank you Sarah and Jonathan and of Mlle Circe for a lovely relaxing week in your gorgeous gite.
Lovely hosts, perfect gite, nice surroundings :)
This is the second time we stayed at Jonathan and Sarah's gite and we love it! Highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for the perfect getaway :)
Welcoming and beautiful
Situated in a rural village in the Champagne / Burgundy borders, in gently rolling countryside with open farmland and mixed forest, this corner of France is largely undiscovered by tourists and is ideal for walking and cycling.
Nearby there are Champagne houses where you can taste delightful Champagnes to rival the well known brands. Just a 15 minute drive away is Colombey les Deux Eglises, the home of Charles de Gaulle with a magnificent new museum. The medieval city of Troyes is less than hour's drive. Slightly further afield is the city of Dijon, famous for its cuisine and architecture . Closer to home you can visit the atelier of Pierre-Auguste Renoir at Essoyes, or discover the secrets of Voltaire and Emilie du Chatelet at the exquisite Chateau at Cirey sur Blaise.
For the younger at heart the highly recommend theme park of Nigoland is also close by. Fancy a day trip to Paris and climbing the Eiffel Tower? Well, with an early start, its just two hours by train from the station at nearby Bar sur Aube.
