“Lovely place!”
Reviewed 8 September 2011

Lovely accommodations in a great location for visiting the Château de Versailles, just a 20-minute drive away.

This nicely renovated 18th Century barn in a tiny hamlet about 30 minutes outside Paris is owned and managed by Eric and Boris, two thoroughly charming hosts.

We stayed in the 'Campagne' room which was cosy and adequately furnished. Nothing special, but it had a comfortable bed, an impressive antique wardrobe and its own private bathroom which was excellent: spacious with modern fittings and shower-stall, all impeccably spotless.

We were there in August and, in the customary French fashion, most of the neighboring hostelries had shut their doors and taken off to the coast for the month (to get away from the tourists?). This is where Boris came into his own! He spent the best part of an hour trawling the Internet, looking for somewhere that was (a) open, (b) affordable and (c) with a menu that accommodated my wife's need for a gluten-free meal. He not only found three that were open, he even downloaded their menus for us to choose from. Turned out his personal recommendation was absolutely superb, if a little pricey, even by French standards.

Furthermore, before we left for dinner, we happened to mention to Boris that we were planning on visiting the Château de Versailles the next day, whereupon he enquired whether we had already purchased admission tickets. When we replied in the negative, he promptly got on the Internet again and downloaded tickets for us, as he put it, “to avoid you having to stand in line for two hours”. And he was right! When we got to the Château, the line to purchase tickets was at least two hours long. Thanks, Boris! Pity he couldn't do anything about the 90-minute wait we had to actually get into the place, even with tickets! The moral is clear: avoid the month of August if you want to visit any tourist attractions in France!

Breakfast was the classic French affair, with plenty of fresh breads, preserves and coffee, all served in a very pleasant dining room opening onto the pretty little garden. Once again, our hosts excelled themselves: they prepared a special egg breakfast for my gluten/dairy-intolerant wife. Thanks, guys!

All in all, an excellent place to stay, at an affordable price. Oh, and if you struggle a bit with your French, don't worry, both Boris and Eric speak excellent English.

Only 15 minutes from the Palace of Versailles, 35 minutes from Central Paris this lovely guest house is a gem to be found. We stayed in the Oriental Suit which was beautifully decorated and clean. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners and would highly recommend staying here should you get the chance.

Petit Nailly is a beautiful house in a real "get away from everything" location yet only 20 minutes to the lovely Versailles. The room we had was perfect and had tea/coffee facilities, a big comfy bed and a lovely clean bathroom. Breakfast was a typical French one with pastries, bread and jam - all of top quality. The host was lovely (despite the fact that she didn't speak English and my French isn't great). We muddled by and I really enjoyed my stay. Highly recommended. Also to note is a fabulous restaurant in the next village Milon la Chapelle. The restaurant is called Auberge de la Chapelle and booking is essential - it was very popular. A lovely stay.
