“A beautiful, elegant house in a lovely small town”
We stayed for two weeks in October and had a wonderful time. The house is spacious and well equipped, with a large sun-drenched kitchen equipped with everything you could need. It’s in an ideal position in the middle of the town so it’s only minutes to a range of patisseries with wonderful cakes and baguettes (we had to try them every day) as well as lovely walks around the lakes or along the Avenue Verte. It’s also ideally situated for trips to the coast or to beautiful cities like Rouen and Amiens. We visited Monet’s garden at Giverny and the Palace of Versailles (both stunning), so two items off my bucket list.
Owner's reply: Thank you Janette. I'm so glad you enjoyed yourselves. I hope you will return.
“Fantasic house, great location”
It was an absolute pleasure to stay in this property. It's in a perfect location, right in the middle of a rural town, with lovely local shops a short walk away, and the colourful fields of the countryside just beyond that. I particularly enjoyed the fact that the house feels like a very homely place, while also having large light rooms, and spaces for people to go and relax and do their own thing if they want to. I would definitely recommend staying here and I can't wait to come back next year!
“Excellent stay in a gorgeous location”
We had a brief but great stay at Forges-les-Eaux. The house is very comfortable and well-furnished - I particularly liked the light and airy kitchen. It's in a lovely corner of Normandy that I hadn't visited before; Margaret's recommendation to take a look at nearby Lyons-le-Foret (c16th market town) was spot-on, and if we'd had longer the house is well-placed to visit Rouen and the nearby ruined Abbey of Jumieges. The Casino in Forges is also definitely worth a peek - take your 20cent pieces and you could win big. Shop and supermarket opening hours are a bit sporadic and it might have been useful to have those more clearly available, but I think the information was there in the well-written information pack.
“Lovely house in a truly French village”
If you are after a cosy, homely base to explore the region this is perfect. The house is a lovely town house with great amenities and so close to the fresh bakeries and charcuteries in the village. The village is a peaceful and quiet place so if you want a relaxing place to escape for a few days then this place will suit you. Would definitely go again!
“A beautiful house in a charming French town”
The first thing we noticed when arriving at La Farfollerie was how spacious it feels: There are high ceilings and great big windows that fill the kitchen with light. And from those windows you can see the pretty courtyard garden, down a short flight of steps from the back door. The town has an excellent bakery just a few dozen steps from the doorstep, so breakfast pastries quickly became part of our morning routine. The supermarket on the square was closed for the week we were there, but the bigger Super U up the road has good opening hours and a huge range of every kind of meat and vegetable as well as typically cheap-but-delicious French wines. The bedrooms are large and bright, with comfortable beds. There is a good shower and all the furnishings and details you would expect. In the evening, we found the kitchen to be a great place to cook, and enjoy eating around the big table. After dinner, the lounge has an ample supply of firewood for the log fire, to sit around and enjoy some wine or the local artisan cider. Overall, a great place to stay and a thoughtful approach from the owner. We are planning to go back again later this year!
“A fantastic place to stay!”
The property is beautifully kept and extremely comfortable. There was plenty of space for our group of six, we had to spend rather more time indoors during our stay than we would have liked due to having picked a rather rainy fortnight. The kitchen/dining area was our favourite room, light and airy, with huge windows and french doors which opened onto the stairs into the garden. It felt like a home from home as there were a wealth of books and every home comfort you could need. Forges itself is a beautiful place to stay. There are some fantastic places to explore in the local area. We visited many local villages and towns: Rouen, Monet's garden at Giverny, and several places recommended in the guide to the area at the property.
“Homely and spacious property, with basic amenities nearby”
Property was clean, homely and spacious. Typical quiet village-location feel, with a few traditional deli and bakeries within seconds walking distance in the main square, and a general minimarket store (closed for redecoration during our stay) - the other, 5-10mins walk, a larger supermarket (including clothes section, dvds, and an entire section dedicated to yoghurt ...) Finding somewhere to go for an evening drink was a recurring problem, despite the apparent number of watering holes we saw during the daytime, so plan ahead for nights "in", unless you want to go down to the Casino, where you will naturally end up paying over the odds for the pleasure. On a short stay, some very pleasant local walks in the woods by the lake for an hour or so, and quite possible longer if you looked at a map. Again, dining was always chez nous, though we did try the pizzeria, which was... a pizzeria. We made use of the visitor guides left at the property to get ideas for things to do; in the village itself, there seemed to be little. There's internet available at the property, though the wifi was sadly an intermittently functioning service while we were there, though this could have been due to us as eight people each with data-hungry laptops and smartphones assuming it could handle the traffic. Connect when you need to and you'll probably be fine. Given the poor weather, we enjoyed comfortable long nights in amusing ourselves in front of the warming fire.
