Domaine Richot - From 1200€ to 1200€ per Week
Two restored 17thC stone houses, with pool in 2 acres of grounds + impressive climbing frame
La Tonnellerie is a 2 bedroom self-catering house (sleeping 4) and L'Entrepot has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 5. The houses sit within the walled grounds of a former wine merchant’s property in the centre of the village, only 320 miles (4 hours' drive) from Calais, on easy motorways. There is plenty of space for secure parking, with 2 acres of communal gardens, an outdoor 12m x 6m secluded pool, grass badminton court and a recently installed enormous "Treetops" climbing frame. Both houses are some distance apart, with their own privacy, and so can be rented either individually or together if two families are holidaying together.
Aubepierre-sur-Aube is a peaceful, rural village situated in Champagne-Ardenne, on the northern tip of Burgundy, in France’s newest National Park. Surrounded by rolling countryside, forest and farmland, it is an ideal place for lovers of the outdoors, with close proximity to historic towns and sites of interest, as well as vineyards. Being placed on the Champagne/Burgundy border, you can enjoy what both wine regions have to offer in terms of visits and degustations; and the historic towns of Chaumont and Langres (the 'Carcassonne of the North') are half an hour away. The beautiful old towns of Troyes, Beaune and Dijon are only an hour away, and well worth a visit.
It is undeniably a fantastic region for cyclists of all levels, with a vast range of possible routes of all distances on ridiculously quiet roads and forest tracks. Guided rides can be arranged with a local triathlon enthusiast. Mushroom foragers and birdwatchers will not be disappointed either! There is a café & shop in the village which supplies fresh bread and croissants daily on demand. There is also a tennis court & fishing in the village, with a wider range of services (& excellent golf) in neighbouring Arc-en-Barrois.
The houses have been tastefully renovated with a vintage French feel and authentic (child friendly) furniture. La Tonnellerie comprises a large open-plan kitchen-dining room (fully equipped with simple white crockery and practical cooking pans), and separate living area, which is kitted with Bose ipod speakers, TV, DVD player and radio/CD player. On the first floor is the bathroom and twin bedroom which can very comfortably sleep two, three at a pinch; on the top floor is the large double bedroom and spacious, airy shower room.
L'Entrepot is larger and is equipped in the same way. It has an open-plan lounge/dining room with separate kitchen, and wc/shower room and laundry room on the ground floor; with three bedrooms and one bathroom on the first floor.
We have tried to make the houses as we would like to find a holiday home ourselves: with quality bedding and towels and a practical feel to the everyday running of the kitchen and bathrooms. We want you to feel totally at home. There are always teabags, sugar and milk on your arrival to ensure the beginnings of a comfortable stay.
