We (my wife and my parents) thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The lady who runs the gite greeted us (in French of course) with a very friendly welcome. The house itself is big and airy, clean and cosy throughout. Most of it seemed to be newly decorated - or if it wasn't, the decor wasn't showing its age - except for the kitchen which was lovely but becoming a little rough around the edges. That aside, the only thing I'd suggest as an improvement to the overall experience would be for them to provide some basic provisions on arrival, such as fresh bread and milk, tea and coffee, to save travellers having to go off in search of a supermarket before they can have a drink or a bite to eat. We had a great time and are very happy to recommend this place. We look forward to coming back.
This is a stunning, huge 3 bedroomed house with 2 bathrooms. Very clean and has everything you need. It is part of farm buildings which is still in use but you never really hear the farmer coming or going. We only bumped into them twice in the week that we were there. It is ideally located for visits to Paris, Disneyland, Parc Asterix, Chantilly, Pierrefonds etc. the nearest train station in approx. 3/4 of a mile away but be sure to check your trains as we got caught out when we went to Paris and returned late to find that the trains had stopped running to it. Nearest main station is Persan-Beaumont (approx. 5 miles away). Supermarkets are a 10 minute drive away. There's not a lot in the village of Boran sur-Oise though.

We were surprised and gratified to have stayed in such a beautiful and spacious house. The view onto the back garden was delightful countryside and a few ostriches dotted around.
THe dishwasher was full of water so we washed up by hand, never mind! Great collection of DVDs on the shelf and interesting guide books.
