A beautiful gite and a wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

This has to be one of the best holiday we have ever had! The gite itself is of a high standard with good fittings and nicely decorated. For the two weeks we stayed it was hot and the gite was cool and there were many shady spots in the garden in which to relax. It is possible to walk out of the front door of the gite straight into the beautiful Jardins de mon Moulin and there is also a small private garden and terrace (as shown in the photograph) just for the gite. Our hosts were exceptional and I cannot speak highly enough of them; they were kind, thoughtful and (being on site) were very responsive to our requests and queries. They also brought delicious local goodies for us to taste. There are lots of activities within easy reach of the cottage - we particularly enjoyed visiting local artisans (pottery, furniture makers and cutlers) and museums, as well as one or two champagne caves. We are recommending this destination to all family and friends, even though we would like to keep it to ourselves!

A beautiful and tranquil location

  • 5 of 5

We found this place to be so wonderful that the temptation is to keep it to ourselves. We will be going back. The gite is well equipped and comfortable, the location stunning, and the area generally is very beautiful. The owner was extremely helpful and the whole holiday was one of the most relaxing we have ever had. If you like gardens, as well as peace and quiet, then it can't be recommended too highly. And there are many surprises too - black swans, for example. Simply a lovely experience all round.

A Wonderful Gite!

  • 5 of 5

We have been here for a week and have one more to go. It is absolutely lovely with modern kitchen and bath. It has everything you need- dishwasher, washing machine, good cooktop and oven.

It is particularly lovely for two reasons: The owners have been absolutely wonderful, even though we speak little French. They have been helpful, and we have traded some really good food from kitchen to kitchen. Most importantly, the gardens are fantastic. It is quiet with the sound of waterfalls and the scent of flowers. Walking through the garden is a wonder at every turn--I have found a different corner everyday.

It is clean, well maintained and the owners are fantastic! We have toured militaria in this area and Verdun, but it is close to lots of interesting place. It is a great place for those who love to cook.

I highly recommend this gite for its lovely, relaxing setting

A wonderful gite!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été ici pendant une semaine et ont un de plus à faire. Il est absolument charmant avec une cuisine moderne et salle de bain. Il a tout ce dont vous avez besoin lave-vaisselle, lave-linge, table de cuisson et four bonne.

Il est particulièrement agréable pour deux raisons: Les propriétaires ont été absolument merveilleux, même si on parle peu le français. Ils ont été utiles, et nous avons échangé de la nourriture vraiment bonne de la cuisine à la cuisine. Plus important encore, les jardins sont fantastiques. Il est calme avec le bruit des cascades et le parfum des fleurs. Marcher à travers le jardin est une merveille à chaque tour - j'ai trouvé un coin différent tous les jours.

Je recommande fortement ce gîte pour sa belle, cadre reposant

Une fin d'année dans un endroit paisible

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour plus que agréable dans un endroit paisible.

Un très beau gite, très bien entretenu et avec un propriétaire des plus accueuillant. A refaire!

Super idyllisch und spannend für Kinder

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist toll ausgestattet und liegt in herrlicher Lage. Der Garten ist spektakulär und ideal für einen romantischen Urlaub zu zweit geeignet aber auch mit Kind ist das Ferienhaus spitze. Wir waren mit unserem fast 2-jährigen Sohn für eine Woche in Thonnance und waren zunächst etwas beunruhigt wegen der vielen Bachläufe. Natürlich ist erhöhte Vorsicht angebracht aber der Urlaub war ein voller Erfolg. Niklas konnte stundenlang den Pfauen und Hühnern zuschauen und fütterte begeistert die Forellen. Der Vermieter ist extrem nett und fürsorglich und wir fanden es sehr schade, dass wir kaum französisch sprechen und so nicht wirklich mit Ihm kommunizieren konnten. Von der Landschaft und den Städten her gesehen gibt es sicherlich spektakulärere Orte in Frankreich das wird aber voll und ganz durch die tolle Wohnung und die netten Vermieter kompensiert.
