Fantastic base for a trip to Paris
A lovely clean, well equipped property in a fantastic location. A great base for our Paris holiday. We parked our car on the secure driveway and didn't use it all week. The local RER station is a 5 minute walk away allowing us to access Paris hassle free on the fantastic RER and Metro lines. Philippa and her family are fantastic hosts, nothing is too much trouble. Chatou has everything you need, lovely restaurants, Supermarkets, cash machine ( handy if you use an FX card ). Thank you again Philippa. We will be back.
Perfect family living with easy access to Paris
My family and I stayed here for about 3 months while my boys went to a local school during a secondment. It is perfect for a family, plenty of space and easy walking distance to the RNR, local supermarket, schools and parks.. Philippa is British and incredibly helpful so was a great assistance to us working out how Paris worked. A perfect place for a family who wish to stay a little out of Paris but with easy access to Paris. We would definitely recommend this place.
Pretty house in Chatou
My son and I stayed in this delightful property for a few days in July 2015. The house was even better than we expected, with pretty decor - and lovely beds! Philipa was a great host - nothing was too much trouble for her. The house is less than 5 minutes walk from Chatou station, with fast trains taking around 15 minutes to get into central Paris. I would not hesitate to recommend this property and I can't wait to go back!
Super place to stay close to Chatou Market
I have stayed at Philippa's house on many occasions, we love it. The house is situated in a a quiet street and has a beautiful garden. Well equipped and comfortable- we will be back ! Thanks Philippa
Lovely house-great location
Location was perfect-really easy to get in and out of Paris
Made to feel very welcome by the owner-'welcome pack' of food etc was great
Great place to stay
I have stayed here a few times. The last time I used it as a base and drove to the Courson Flower Show. The accommodation is lovely and very reasonably priced. It is spacious, tastefully furnished, clean and the hosts are very knowledgeable and helpful. They speak both french and english. You can also park your car in their driveway. It is a 5 minute walk to the station and takes less than 15 minutes to get to the centre of Paris. There is a wonderful market twice a week just a couple of minutes walk away where you can buy wonderful fresh fruit, meats, fish, cheese, bread etc. If you don't feel like cooking or going out, the host may be able to cook you a superb meal (obviously this will cost, and needs to be ordered in advance, but is well worth it).
From the Owner
