My partner and I found this place by luck last year as we set off on our big 3 week trip around France visiting all the wine region. Having set off from London, we were glad to have opted for an overnight stay in La Fermette as the traffic was heavy and we were quite tired.
We drove by the accommodation a few times not being able to find it on our satnav and the lack of sign posts perhaps was the only issue we had. However as soon as we arrived, Nicolas' wife welcome us and installed us in our Campagne room which was a good size, comfortable and very clean. They have a surprisingly large back garden or perhap call it a paddock which goes down to the lake and it's very quiet.
Although we were recommended a pizza place, we opted for some bread, cheese, charcuterie and beer from a nearby supermarket (3 mins drive) and sat out on their outdoor wooden table. Nicolas arrived a bit later from work to welcome us and have a small chat.
Breakfast next morning was fantastic and Nicolas was in fine form churning out one dish after another including cheese, marmalade, heaps of pain perdu, coffee and juice and more - sufficient enough to have kept us going until we reached Champagne.
I have subsequently recommended this place to my father who enjoyed it as well and no doubt will be staying here in the future.
If I could however suggest - the lack of good restaurants in the local vicinity makes it a bit cumbersome for guests to drive far out for something other than pizzas. If they could also provide the option of a light dinner - just some charcuterie with bread etc, that would be a very welcomed addition!
