"Wonderful hostess and delightful location"

A great setting and excellent accommodation. Our hostess was most helpful and gracious. There was an initial problem with WiFi access but that has now been permanently resolved and works extremely well.

My wife and I will certainly return when we are next in this part of France and have been recommending it to our friends..

"A dream honeymoon - romantic Iris cottage lived up to its name!"

We stayed here for our honeymoon and we couldn't have chosen a more romantic and beautiful gite to start our married life.

Its a truly rustic paradise and is actually even better than the photographs show. It's well equipped and beautifully decorated in true French style.

The surrounding buildings are also very pretty and the huge gardens, wooded areas and tennis court are all there to be enjoyed.

It's set in a small village surrounded by really lovely walks - no shops though and the nearest town is around 3 miles away withe very limited bus service - so a car is advisable (although bikes are available to use at the gite and this is also a very pleasant way to get around generally).

The owner Yolande is a lovely woman - very friendly and helpful - and she made us feel amazingly welcome throughout our stay. We left feeling like we'd gained a friend.

If you're looking to enjoy a relaxing stay in classic French countryside with easy access into Paris then this is the place for you!

We thoroughly recommend this place

"Very comfortable, well fitted out, peaceful mini gite well above the average."

Tucked away on a tiny road to nowhere in the depths of the countryside Iris Cottage is beautifully situated if you want peace and quiet, easy walking for as far as you want to go and pretty countryside. It is well furnished and has two rooms plus a well fitted shower room with an endless supply of hot water. One room is a simple dining/kitchen that works well if you are happy with a hob and multifunction microwave. It worked well enough for us. The other is a living /. sleeping area with enough space, a very comfortable bed and furnished with an Arabic theme. Mme. Dauphin was helpful but unobtrusive. Beware the chimney - the fire smokes! Otherwise perfect.

Thank you for your very kind review... The ventilation shaft of the chimney will be checked and fixed for the next winter !!!! I promise... Best Regards, Y. Dauphin.
