So well-equipped and comfortable, the cottage was a great base for our explorations of the area (Gerberoy, Chantilly, Senlis, etc). Mouy itself is a typical small French town... with five bakeries!
At the end of each day, we loved relaxing in the sunshine of the spacious garden - usually watching our little dog trying to entice the friendly cats to play! Being big kids we also enjoyed playing table football and table tennis in the adjoining barn! The loan of the bikes was a nice addition too.
Thank you to Adrian and Vanessa who were perfect hosts - unobtrusive yet helpful, including through the booking process and answering our queries before the trip.
The cottage was both spacious and cosy, it was beautifully designed and well-equipped with all the living, cooking and cleaning items you might need on holiday. The bedrooms were thoughtfully laid out with plenty of room for clothes, shoes, luggage etc. The shower/toilet room was functional and the downstairs toilet was an added bonus. There is parking beside the cottage which is next to the walled family home - very nice.
We were visiting family and for us, the location was fantastic, but I also know there's a local train station with routes to Paris. There are plenty of patisseries only a few minutes walk away for the delicious French breads and pastries!
Overall, we had a fantastic, fun weekend and the cottage, Vanessa and Adrian helped to make this happen.....we're already looking forward to return in the future.
This Gite is a converted stable block which has been converted to a very high standard. It has a well equipped kitchen and has 2 very good sized bedrooms and the owners can convert the beds to doubles or twins. It is a very nice and comfortable place to stay.
The owners Adrian and Vanessa were extremely welcoming and helpful.
There is a large garden you can use together with barbecue facilities.
Local bakeries are within walking distance and 2 large supermarkets are a short 10 minute drive away.
As the name suggests this is a charming and tranquille place to stay.
Its also a good base to visit Chantilly and the main towns in the region.
Our highest recommendation is that we would stay here again if in this area of France.
La Source Tranquille really does live up to it's name. Behind the walls lies a real hidden treasure, perfect if you're looking for a completely relaxing 'get away from it all' setting. Having said this we also found it perfect for our two girls aged 10 and 13, who loved the games room and the garden - complete with trampoline, badminton net, rope swing etc. whilst we enjoyed a glass of wine (or two) under the shaded dining area. All of which were very private from the owner's garden and property. The gite itself was extremely well equipped, clean and comfortable. Paris and Park Asterix were both within easy reach of the property, as were swimming lakes and chateaux. The owners, Vanessa & Adrian, were extremely helpful and friendly and were able to offer lots of suggestions for things to do and places to visit. Would definitely recommend this home from home property.
Look no further it you want a truly relaxing Gite that delivers everything you will need for a great holiday. Adrian & Vanessa (the owners) could not be more helpful.
A most elegantly furnished stone-built gite within the walled garden of the English owners. Huge comfortable beds. Completely peaceful and relaxing. Plenty of trees in the garden provide shade on the hottest days. Ample secluded outdoor space for children to play and games provided. Good walks in the local forest. Within easy reach of Chantilly (lovely). Gardeners must visit village of Gerberoy and Andre Van Beek's garden at St Paul (mini Giverny without the tourists). Local train station gives easy access to Paris (50mins) but we found it difficult to tear ourselves away to go anywhere at all. Owners friendly and so helpful. Just lovely.
I wouldn’t hesitate to rebook this gite if/when we return to this area of France.
This is a wonderful little gite, freshly restored, clean and modern with some nice additional touches - such as the games room next door and use of the large garden. We wanted for nothing during our stay and felt at home as soon as we arrived.
The location is absolutely perfect for catching the train in to Paris for the day (about a 1 hour journey) allowing you to touch the hustle and bustle of the big city, yet still being able to relax in a calm ambience in the evening! As we have young children, this seemed a better option than being stuck in a hotel room in the city.
Adrian and Vanessa made us feel exceptionally welcome and were always on hand to offer guidance on things to do in and around the area, which is always a nice touch.
