From the owner

There are four recently renovated cottages lining the courtyard of what used to be a dairy farm on the edge of the small village of Eclance. The cottages have retained the character of the old barns through the exposure of limestone walls or old oaks beams where possible though alsothey have large light rooms providing the modern day comforts. Each bedroom has its own bathroom or shower room.

If you are a large group but do not need all bedrooms/cottages, please still contact us as we are flexible in renting a number of cottages to suit your requirements. The prices provided are for beds for 11 bedrooms, 22 people. An extra four single beds may be provided. If you require extra single beds, please contact Sarah. Price on application.

If the cottages have been booked out by different families, to date, we have found that there is so much on offer in this area that seldom are there more than one family using the pool at the same time.

You can dine al fresco on the terraces in front of the cottages, under the shade of the trees lining the garden or on the terraces. There is a BBQ terrace with a chimenea, that provides the opportunity to eat into the night with the ambience of burning wood and on a clear night the beautiful stars and sky unpolluted by light.

We are close to the Regional Naturel Park of the Forest of the Orient with its three big lakes, Nigloland amusement park, the champagne route and the medievel towns of Troyes and Bar-sur-Aube.

Further details

Bottle or half bottle champagne provided as a welcome gift depending on number of adults from our friends 'Champagne Philippe Legout' for those renting for a week or more.

Payment of deposit via IBAN, Caxton FX FastPay Online System (we have found the rates of exchange to be better than the banks or post office with no commission charges to either you or us) or PayPal with an increment to cover additional charges.

Prices include bedlinen with beds already made up, services such as electricity and gas and towels for the bathroom. Should you require the cleaning service to take place after your departure, please reserve in advance. Price to be advised depending on how many cottages you require cleaning. Otherwise, the cottages must be left in the same state of cleanliness as you found the cottages on your arrival.

Payment of balance in euros on arrival or via IBAN or FastPay in advance.

Further details outdoors

There is a large barn in which you can park your cars. In the height of the summe this means your car will be nice and cool when you go out on excursions or shopping.

There are cycle hire shops nearby so many guests bring their own as the roads are on the whole empty!

Likewise at the lakes you can hire boat (bring your licence with you).

We have some toys for children to play with and an old school desk from the Eclance school that seats two young children so please let Sarah or James know if you would like this placed in your cottage.

Merci beaucoup pour votre commentaire. James et moi sommes très heureux que nos gîtes à La Ferme des Tourterelles satisfait vos besoins et bien plus encore !

Nous espérons que vous serez en mesure de retourner un jour. Pour d’autres grandes familles ou les groupes qui veulent réserver un ou plusieurs gîtes, il y a beaucoup d’espace où vous pouvez socialiser ensemble ou si vous voulez un moment de calme, de disparaitre.

Owner's reply:
Thanks so much for your review and kind words! We have had many guests who make the trip up to Disneyland only to be disappointed that they spend most time waiting in a queue rather than on rides. Only five minutes drive from us is Nigloland ("Niglo" - slang for hedgehog), one of the largest amusement parks in France. It nestles in a wooded valley, it is reasonable (as amusement parks go) to get in, you can take your packed lunch to eat there in the lovely gardens or eat in the many restaurants/snack bars but best of all, they spend most of the time on rides. They have many rides for both the young and the adventurous. There are days of course when one has to queue for a short while. Sarah
