The Iris cottage is a very charming and quiet 45 m2 self catering cottage for 2 people. Its main feature is the monumental stone fireplace in the lounge bedroom, a great place for relaxing. The cottage is located in a wide 2 ha property with park, forest and a tennis court. In summertime, it's the ideal place for barbecues and having nice time together.The place is near historic cities like Fontainebleau (25 km) and its famous castle, Nemours (10 km), Moret sur Loing (15 km), Ferrières en Gâtinais etc. It's also near the great rock climbing and hiking spots in Fontainebleau forest.It's only 1h15 from Paris by train or car !You'll find all the comfort (equiped bucolic kitchen, romantic bathroom, TV, internet...). The bed sheets and towels are provided and the bed will be made up for your arrival with quality bed linen.

We stayed in this lovely cottage for a week at the beginning of July this year. The owner was very friendly as we arrived, and made sure we knew about everything in the cottage.

The cottages are...

Yolande and her family were very welcoming, friendly and helpful, and were a pleasure to meet with. The setting could not have been more idyllic. Lots of idyllic french villages around to enjoy. We stayed in the region in order to visit the chateau at...
