- Very Good
It is a lovely village where the only sound you can hear is of birds, The food is amazing, delightful flavors and tastes. It was a lifetime experience highly recommended. Will be back this year.
Owner's reply: I'm glad that you liked it so much that you're coming back again this year. Returning guests are more than welcome, and I'm sure there will be many places you didn't get a chance to visit last time. Hurry to get in touch and book - availability is going fast!
“Quirky & Fabulous French Property - You'll surely fall in love!”
Upon our arrival at the property, we were greeted and shown around the house. It is spacious and has everything a holiday maker could wish for. The kitchen is large and well equipped, the lounge has plenty of seating and comes complete with Sky, free WiFi & free landline calls to home! There is a ground floor loo and separate shower room (although the water pressure is quite poor). The bedroom on the first floor is joined to a large bathroom which could benefit from a shower curtain and wall fixing as the water pressure in the shower head over the bath is far better than downstairs) and there are a further two bedrooms at the top of the house. The courtyard is a real sun trap and the added sun terrace ensures that every ounce of sun is squeezed from the day. The town of Vermenton is quiet and has all the necessary ingredients - supermarket, petrol station, ample parking, bakers, butchers, bars & restaurants. The park area is a delight to stroll around and the quay side makes for a picturesque amble. The area has plenty to offer - our itinerary went like this : Saturday Eve : A good wander around the village and into the park and across the rickety bridges to see the many lovely vistas of the river. Sunday : Chablis Market & Town. Monday : Tonnerre, Tanlay Castle, Noyers sur Serein Tuesday : Arcy sur Cur caves, Vezelay, Avallon Wednesday : Abbaye de Fontenay, Bussy Rabutin Thursday : Bailly Caves, Auxerre, Joigny Friday : Chateau de Bazoches, Morvan Forest, Chateau Chinon town Saturday : Home via Monet's garden & house at Giverny I could ramble on for hours about the lovely countryside, the gorgeous old historical buildings, the charming villages & the super property - but you'll die of boredom before the end of the review. All you need to do is GO YOURSELF!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your great review! I appreciate your comments on the water pressure in the downstairs shower - I will get that looked at, but I will definitely look into getting a shower curtain or screen put up in the bathroom as soon as possible. I'm impressed with your itinerary - you certainly made the most of your week in beautiful Burgundy! I'm so pleased that you had a good holiday and I welcome you back any time..
“Excellent in every way, and fantastic value for money.”
We have a long experience of renting houses in France and the UK, and this is the best, and best value, accommodation we've ever rented. The house is spacious, light and airy. There are plenty of cooking utensils, and more than enough crockery and cutlery for everyone (there were four of us). Loads of nice towels were supplired, as was the bed linen, which was good quality. The kitchen is nice and big, with a large dining table, and the living room is comfortable. And you get free international phone calls! Only one minus point, really - two of the bedrooms are on the second floor, and the stairs leading to them are a bit narrow and precarious - not suitable for elderly or infirm people, or for very young children. It is situated in a lovely village with three nice restaurants, boulangerie, etc., and there is an excellent market on Friday mornings. Brilliant for access to the vineyards of Chablis, Irancy, Tonnerre, Epineuil, Auxerre, etc., so great for wine lovers. The river skirting the village is lovely, and there are two parks next to it. If you've got young children, the Parc des Iles is superb - the kids can splash about in the river, build dams, etc. all day. Can't recommend this enough.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your comprehensive review. I'm glad that you liked the house and enjoyed yourselves when you were out and about. I also appreciate your concerns about the staircase to the second floor. I can assure you that I have now had it improved to ensure the safety of everyone using it. I know from your email following your holiday that you have already started recommending my gite to family and friends, and I hope that you'll continue to do so and to return yourselves some time. Many thanks - Carol
“Easy location -”
My fiance and I stayed at 2 Rue de Vau with our parents for one week to plan our wedding at the nearby Abbaye de Reigny, which is just a few minutes down the road. It was the absolute perfect location and accomodation for what we needed for the week! The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed lunches and dinners in the very pleasant back garden! We used the telescope to star gaze from the top porch! The living room was comfortable and had plenty of seating for all of us to be together and the bedrooms were private. The internet worked well, as well as English TV and telephone! We loved it and felt very "at home!" Carol (the owner) is very warm and welcoming, greeting us on our arrival and sitting down for a chat to make sure we knew everything about the place and areas to visit. She went out of her way to make sure we could find a good restaurant, as we arrived on a Sunday, and came back to tell us how to find it! We felt lucky to have found such a great place for a great price, with such nice people managing. We are booking again next summer for guests to our wedding!
Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind words - it was a pleasure to meet you both and your parents, and I'm really pleased you liked the gite and the surrounding area so much. We look forward to seeing you and your American family for your wedding next June..!
“Friendly village with friendly people..”
We had a lovely holiday in Vermenton - especially visiting Vezelay and Chablis - very memorable. We loved the boutique shops in Vezelay and the basilica was amazing - all the history and the stories behind the friezes on the pillars. The countryside is lovely with the grapevines on the hills - and then on to Chablis for winetasting!
Owner's reply: Thanks - there certainly are some very interesting places to visit - and the wine-tasting is the "crème de la crème"...
“I want to go back!”
Me and my partner Steve loved our trip away to Vermenton! It was very peaceful, with lovely weather and very french, the vibe was very french too. The house was lovely, with great accomadation and good facilities. With the garden balcony it helped top up my tan! The overall house is beautiful, and very authentic. I would deffinetly go back again, and would reccomend it to any of my family or friends.
Owner's reply: Many thanks - I'm glad you enjoyed your holiday in the "Heart of France". I look forward to seeing you again soon - and your family and friends too!
“Home from home in Beautiful Burgundy”
Stayed at this property for 2 nights in April, 2012, with my two sons 10 and 12 years old, as a stop gap on our way around visiting friends in France. It was a very comfortable house with all amenities with a lovely French/English crossover feel to it. Although we weren't there for long vermenton had all we needed for our visit most importantly a patisserie for our morning pastries and pain ! There was a park for the children, and a lovely walk by the canal. Perfect stopover after Auxerre and before we went on to visit friends.
Owner's reply: Thanks for your review - I'm glad you felt at home. Come back and stay for a proper holiday next time - you'll be very welcome..
