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 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).
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.

We have one guest rule: each group of visitors needs to leave one improvement. Anything - from a box to hold matches by the fire or a mug, to a 3D 4k flat screen. Up to you ;)

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.
