What Past Guests Are Saying
Alex and Olga go to French country
Dublin CA; USA
a very pleasant conclusion to our trip
We live in the San Francisco Bay Area and we rented Hardange for a week in May 2010, the last stop of a (too) short European tour. All went according to plan and met our expectations. We found the house easily from Paris by car and Maryvonne, the caretaker and neighbor, was helpful and welcoming. The house was clean, all amenities worked well. Exteriors well kept, and very quiet. The house itself has a lot of character and charm. Two days were partially rain (not unusual) and the rest sunny. We visited most of the nearby attractions, small towns and villages, patronized local restaurants and generally had a peaceful and very pleasant time. We would like to return a little later in the season (August) and stay two weeks with another couple of friends. This would allow for some interesting day excursions to the sea and Brittany (Saint Malo, Normandy...). All in all a pleasant experience.
