Superb place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a couple of days in Chatou and wished we had been able to stay for longer - much longer! The house is superb, beautifully furnished and equipped with a view across a lovely garden, and a fabulous location. It's secure, and only fifteen minutes by train from the Champs Elysees. We visited Versailles, and pottered in the local shops and market, both of which are really good.

Fantastic base for a trip to Paris

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: What a lovely review. While these delightful guests stayed the hot water tank had to be replaced which meant I was obliged to rehouse the family whilst it was replaced,they were very understanding ! We now have lots of hot on tap which is a huge improvement .

Pretty house in Chatou

  • 5 of 5

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!
