We LOVED staying here! We spent 3 days in Disneyland Paris,which the Gite was perfectly located for. Bus 2 minutes walk every 20 minutes. It was lovely coming back to the beautiful gardens which the children lived playing in whilst we relaxed with a glass of wine. Very peaceful location but perfectly placed for exploring local french cities and towns. Will definitely be coming back. Marc was very helpful and a lovely host. Thank you!
My family and I have just returned from a weeks stay in La Marquise, the largest of the 2 gites on the same site. We have thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The owner was not at home during our stay, but we were met by Dominique, a lovely lady who we managed to communicate with despite our French being limited, as was her English. The owner responded promptly to every email sent for further information. We had to pay a 300 Euro damages deposit which had not been requested at the time of paying for our stay, but the owner had advised us of this requirement via email a few days before our visit, so luckily we had enough cash with us to pay for this on arrival. As we were due to leave early on the following Saturday morning we were concerned regarding getting our deposit back, but Dominique agreed to come back on the Friday evening to return this to us.
The property is lovely and spacious with open plan living downstairs, a modern bathroom with shower, separate toilet and 2 roomy bedrooms. We also made use of a double sofa bed in the lounge. It was exceptionally clean with quality fixtures and fittings throughout. The beds were comfortable and the linen clean and of a high standard. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to make our stay a success. There is undercover parking at the property which is safely located behind electric gates. The garden is huge and a delight. Lots of trees for shade and nice to walk around at the end of a busy day. We were very lucky as the weather was outstanding for the whole of our stay with sunshine and temperatures no lower than 30 degrees ever day.
The property is ideally situated for visiting Paris (40 minutes by car) and Disneyland Paris (15 minutes by car). However there is a bus stop within 3 minutes walking distance from the property and you can be at Disneyland in 20 minutes without the expense and stress of parking there. You can also catch the train to Paris from Chessy at Disneyland Paris or you can catch the bus to Meaux in 20 minutes to catch the train to Paris. From either station you can be in Paris in approximately 38 minutes. We made use of the reliable public transport in the area which was less stressful than driving and parking. The surrounding area is unspoilt and typically French, a haven of peace after the rush of bustle of Disneyland and Paris.
Our only concern was the variable wifi but with 4 mobile phones we managed to research what we needed using mobile data. Our teenage daughters found this to be more of a problem than we did. We would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone. Thank you very much for making our stay so pleasant, a real home from home.
We enjoyed very much our stay. Marie Claude and Marc were very welcoming at our arrival and always seeking to ensure everything was satisfactory to us.
My wife and I travelled with 3 kids (11, 9 and 3) and they loved to play at the wonderful backyard garden you see in the picture, that by the way, is much larger than what the picture is able to show.
We certainly recommend for those looking for a place nearby Disneyland, Paris and the wonderful surroundings.
Our stay in "La Marquise" from 26th Dec - 02 Jan was absolutely superb! We were two adults and 3 children (10, 8 and 3). The Gite was very clean, very comfortable and the beds and bed linen of a very high standard. It was perfect for the kids with the garden which they could use freely. There are a number of supermarkets nearby. The gite is 10 minutes drive from Eurodisney and approx 45 minutes driver from Charles De Gaulle airport. The owners were very helpful and friendly, contacting us before we set off to confirm and exchange telephone numbers and arrival arrangements. I would highly recommend.
I would repeat everything the last review said. We stayed in the larger of the two gites. The private electric gates lead to a secret garden containing two gites , a woodland , amazing garden areas with a covered open parking area and seating areas. The owners house is also here but you are very private from them. The gite was full of all modern equipment of a very good standard, the handcrafted kitchen was fab with everything you need. Lovely dining and seating areas, TV and the WIFI was fixed during our stay. Upstairs the two bedrooms were of a very high standard both upholstery and furniture wise. The bathroom was brilliant. Everything was very clean.The only negative is the toilet which was very small and claustrophobic but this might not be a problem to all. The gite is 15 minutes from Disney on the country roads. and 40 minutes from Paris. There is a vast array of supermarkets and amenities within a 10 minute drive. One huge tip is don't park at Disney and get the train into Paris, drive in. We have done this all the time ( 3 holidays ) as there is plenty of parking in hidden underground car parks within Paris center, they may charge 20 euros for up to 6 hours but that is a lot cheaper than the train etc. We parked in the Place de Concorde and behind the Eiffel tower and if you judge times well the traffic is fine. The owners of the Gites were lovely and yes you get a gift as you leave. Highly recommend.
