“Rustic charm and lovely peaceful location outweigh slightly tatty presentation.”
Reviewed 10 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Set in a peaceful and safe hamlet in the beautiful Ardennes countryside, this cottage was once a village store and hairdressers! Roomy and cool inside, the cottage has a lot of charm, much of which is due to the Heath Robinson approach to DIY, particularly the plumbing. Creaking floors and uneven winding stairs add to the experience. That said, although some of the equipment and furniture is old, everything works fine and the cottage is well-equipped, although it only has 1 loo which is in the main bathroom. The firm mattresses on the beds will certainly straighten your back out! Nonetheless, it is a very relaxing place to unwind.

Part of the attraction for us was the peace of the hamlet. There are no facilities within 10 miles, so be prepared to drive to Sedan or Le Chesne for provisions and entertainment. The market at Sedan is very interesting, as is the castle and fortress. Reims cathedral is about an hour away, the champagne cellars are an absolute must and you can stray into Luxembourg within the hour or so. VERY cheap fuel in Luxembourg.

History is alive all around the area, with Roman churches and farms, WW2 battlefields and memorials and the medieval chateau at Sedan already mentioned.

We spent a very pleasant week as a party of 4 middle-aged Brits, bumbling around the country lanes, enjoying the local produce and hospitality and soaking up the sun.

le département des Ardennes surprend toujours les visiteurs , par sa richesse historique et ses paysages boisés et diversifiés .Dommage que mes locataires n' avaient pas assez de temps pour visiter la vallée de la Meuse qui est magnifique .David et sa famille ont été des résidents charmants et j'ai eu plaisir à les recevoir

The service and effort that owner and company put in was really good.Very friendly and showing us through the property very well.The house was well equiped with pretty much everything you need.Lovelly open spaces inside.Pretty comfortable as well.Loved the old farmhouse feel.Fireplace was awesome with loads of wood.The kids loved the hot tub! The Garden was massive with views over fields and forrests.

It Is well situated near the historical war town Sedan (Largest Castle in Europe good day trip)
as well as the European Beer Museum in Stennay(Lovely little town park and walk around)
Reims and Eparney(Champaigne day trip) Is about an hour south.

The closest shops,etc are about 15 mins away.(The owners friend kindly drove me there)
Otherwise Sedan is 20 mins away with everything you need.(I bought a data sim here)

Over all an 9/10 experience.Got more than we bargained for. I will go back :-)
