Autumn is also a great time to stay at la petite maison d'ete. It was very cosy thanks to the wood pellet burner, with everything we needed. We enjoyed some walks right from the gite through the surrounding woods and vineyards. A very relaxing holiday!
La petite maison d'été is a very French building in the beautiful village of Landreville. A historic facade covers a modern, well equipped interior that has everything you need for your stay and has the added benefit of being an eco-friendly establishment. It still retains all it's character inside with the stone walls and wooden beams and opulent furnishing in the main bedroom. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the gite and the Champagne region and hope to return again soon!
Superb location in quiet village (with small shop stocking essentials) and friendly locals. Surrounding area of wonderful, gently rolling, champagne country. Neighbouring village of Essoyes, with its Renoir tradition, and the beautiful medieval town of Troyes should be visited.
We couldn't have asked for a better most perfect gite. It's only 4 hours south of Calais so an easy drive and set in beautiful Champagne countryside. The gite was decorated with a beautiful Christmas tree which was a lovely touch and a thoughtful little gift of chocolates. It set the scene for a brilliant stay.
The gite itself is the best equipped gite/cottage we have ever stayed in, there was nothing we needed that wasn't there. The bedrooms were super comfortable and perfect for our needs, three adults. It has an extra floor with twin beds too so comfortably houses 6 people.
A lovely treat was to have drinks with Jean Francois and his family on New Year's Eve, what was meant to be a quick drink turned into a longer stay and we enjoyed their hospitality. The owners are lovely and very easy to deal with in terms of the bookings, great communication.
The village has, I think, 9 champagne houses, which were closed at Christmas, but gave a hint of how this village would come into its own in the summer months. Great value for money, We stayed in the little summer house, which is not little at all in real terms, but also saw the other gite which was beautiful and modern.
Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and we are planning when we can return!
We spent a great week in the gite. The amenities were excellent, especially the lovely kitchen. the master bedroom was beautifully decorated. the second bedroom was fine but could have done with more hanging space for clothes. the owner Jean-Francois and his family were very helpful and friendly making for a very enjoyable stay.
