About the Property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 7

The Cottage des Hortensias is self-catering accommodation located the grounds of a calm, quiet French chateau B&B. What was once the concierge’s house has been transformed into a spacious 3-bedroom, 2-bath that sleeps seven people. Spacious (130 sq. m. or 1400 sq. ft.) and bright, it features a private courtyard on the front side of the cottage and a small hedge-lined yard in the back.

With over 20 acres of gardens and woods at your disposal, it's a countryside oasis that's within easy striking distance of some of France's best-loved sites.

It's ideal for families who want to slow down and spend a few days visiting Versailles, Chartres, Fontainbleau, Paris and even the eastern end of the Loire Valley. We can also tell you about many lesser known places to see, local markets, etc.

Versailles is 30 minutes away by car, while Chartres is just 20 minutes away.

The cottage is situated about 1 hour southwest of Paris, between Versailles (home of the famous chateau) and Chartres (home of the famous cathedral). It is an idea base for trips into Paris, Versailles, Chartres, Fontainbleau and Giverny. It is located in a quiet country village. You will need a car if you plan on staying here.

Paris is a 45 minute train ride from our local station in Epernon.

The eastern end of the Loire Valley is an easy day trip.

 

Manager info

Why Écrosnes, France:
The cottage is situated on a large private estate that has been in the family for several generations. On the property sits a chateau, which we have been running as a B&B for nearly 20 years, and another cottage. One of the cottages was the old gamekeepers house. The other was the concierge's house. One was restored in 2007 and the other in 2011. We rent the cottage and run the B&B as a way of maintaining the property and keeping it in the family.
