It is situated in the charming village of Eclance,on the borders of the ‘Côte de Bar’ and the Champagne Route. It is one of four cottages that line a courtyard.

About the neighbourhood
Éclance is a Galois name signifying ‘a clearing in the centre of forests’. The clearing may be rather bigger than when this name was coined and is now a small rural community nestling amongst the fields as well as forests.
