About this listing

Less than an hour from Paris and 15 mn from Chartres, our house emanates enormous charm. You will be enchanted the instant you enter the gate (well, we are). Two old farm buildings (5 bed rooms) with all original charm, and all modern comfort.

The space

The feeling of well-being that everyone feels as they enter the house is unique.

The house was a functioning farm until the 70s. Fortunately, two successive owners had the foresight to keep all the original features, allowing us to bring in all the modern comfort, while keeping all the authentic charm.

This house is made for big meals with many friends. The kitchen is brilliantly well equipped for serious cooking and there are large dining tables both in the house and in the garden (as well as BBQ, etc). Local markets and even the nearby Carrefour supermarket have great produce.

And if the weather isn't suited to outdoor dining, you can always enjoy a quiet evening by the large fireplace (while the kids may enjoy a film on the giant projector screen).

Guest access

Guests have full and exclusive access to the house.

Interaction with guests

We won't be there, so guests really do have the house to themselves, but we are always reachable to help out.

Ma famille et moi-même avons passé un agréable séjour dans la maison pleine de charme de Sandrine. La maison et le jardin sont vraiment très agréables et la maison est très bien équipée. Le contact à été très facile avec Sandrine et nous avons été accueillis chaleureusement par Josiane. Je recommande cette location pour un séjour au vert et au calme.

Thank you Sandrine for sharing your beautiful home. Our family needed a place to stay as our daughter's wedding was nearby. The house was perfect and well equipped. Everything we needed was available and then some. You communication and ease of getting the keys was fantastic

The stay at Sandrine's house was a great experience. The house looks just as beautiful as on the photos, when not even more charming. All the tasteful little details decorating the rooms bears sign of care-taking and considerate people living there. The contact to Sandrine confirmed this impression. Although we didn't meet, the communication went smoothly, and she was accommodating to all our needs. A warm thanks for this lovely stay, our group of 10 people can warmly recommend this housing.

Our stay in this beautiful loving home was beyond our expectations. This house is very well loved and respected by the owners and you can feel this in every little detail. Sandrine and her family not only care deeply about their home, they also treated us very kindly and supportively. The communication was exceptional. We immediately felt at home and relaxed. Baguettes for breakfast and a bottle of wine were waiting in the kitchen. Sandrine was not able to be there when we arrived, but had a neighbor give us the tour of the house and made sure we were well received. It was an honor that this house was shared with us! We will go back there if we are back in France! Thank you Sandrine and family!

La maison est très belle et rénovée avec beaucoup de goût mélangeant l'ancien et le moderne. Le jardin est très agréable et nous avons pu profiter des cerises en cette saison. Le salon garde la fraîcheur malgré une grande chaleur lors de notre séjour. Sandrine s'est montrée très disponible et attentive.

We discovered airbnb as travellers, and loved the idea of living in places "properly" rather than through hotels. We have always loved welcoming people. So putting 2 and 2 together seemed to make sense in making our two houses available.

I love thinking of the little details that will delight guests, and even if I won't be there when you are in our house, you can be sure I will be available to make sure you have absolutely everything you need.

I'm French, so good cooking, good food, good wine are pretty high on my agenda. And I'm a mum, so being the best mum ever is higher still.
