My husband and I bought the cottage in 2007 as our holiday home. We have undertaken extensive renovations to make it the beautifully rustic warm cottage it is today. Since 2007 our family has grown with the addition of 1 child and 3 dogs and the cottage continues to suit everyone. 2017 saw the construction of a new above above ground wooden (which we plan to have available for guests from May to September)

CHARLOTTE WATERS purchased this cottage in 2007

Why CHARLOTTE WATERS chose Montbard area

The cottage is our family holiday home. It is fully equipped with everything you should need for a nice stay. An easy drive from Calais - just under 4 hours.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mont Remin Cottage is lovely we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed the remote and quiet setting. The patio area was well used although on the chillier nights the stove was made use of. The cottage is well equipped home from home and we had lovely time. Thank you and would not hesitate to come back. x

What a wonderful house in the French countryside

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a few days en route to the French Alps and also a few days en route coming back. We could not have chosen a better house to stay in, it was comfortable, made you feel at home and was lovely and clean. The garden was perfect for our dog, completely enclosed so no worry about him getting out, lovely country walks straight from the door which was a real bonus. The house has been beautifully renovated and the 2 sided wood burner between the living and dining room was a fantastic feature which made for cosy relaxing evenings drinking wine and eating good food.

Charlotte, the owner was ab fab and a real joy to deal with, communication with her was amazing, immediate responses.

Would not hesitate to come back here again or to recommend it to anyone else.

A home in rural France with some Brisitsh creature comforts

  • 4 of 5

The house is very discreet and comfortable with pretty well all the conveniences you would wish for in your own holiday home. The bedrooms are all very comfortable and the living/eating/cooking spaces are all clean, well cared for and practical so they can be enjoyed by the family without being terrified of touching of things. We ate indoors and out and everything worked perfectly.We had two little dogs who settled in instantly, their only problem being that their legs were too short for one of the steps, a very minor issue indeed and hardly the fault of the house owners! The neighbours were very French but also very pleasant and forgave our Franglais with good humour.

Locally the shopping is pretty limited so planning ahead is necessary, but there is a good range of varied towns and villages within striking distance where everything can be found.

The weather was mostly very kind, and we made trips to the lakes, Nigloland (compares well with with UK theme parks), Troyes, Chatillon (nice spring and excellent museum there, also very good vets for the dogs complusory visit), went bubbly tasting, did trout fishing in the village (you WILL catch a fish) and loads of other stuff. One final thing, if the night sky is clear, the stars and Milky Way are just incredibly bright compared to the UK, AND we saw loads of shooting stars. An excellent family holiday

The cottage was wonderful in every way and exceeded our already high expectations. It is beautifully maintained, has everything we needed (even for the kids) and is set in a lovely, tranquil location.

Its the ideal place to get a taste of real France and I truely hope we will return soon - a real home from home.

Thanks for sharing your home with us - we loved it.

A very tranquil, rural escape

  • 4 of 5

Mont Remin cottage is situated in a very sleepy village on the Burgundy/Champagne border. The cottage itself has been renovated to a high standard and has all the home comforts you could need. We loved the al-fresco dining area which we used every single day. It's in constant shade which is wonderful as we had temperatures of mid 30's of the entire fortnight we were there. The village is missing a bakery which is a shame as we would have liked our morning stroll to buy bread. I guess the next village is about 15 mins to cycle or 5 mins in the car. We were also very grateful for the plunge pool to cool off and the BBQ, which again we used most nights. And I have to confess that the satellite TV was appreciated so that I wouldn't miss too much of Wimbledon.

We chose this area as we wanted to explore the wine and champagne region. The start of the Route de Grand Vins is about an hour's drive from the property but all very accessible with great motorways (toll roads). Reims took about 1.5hrs to get to and we stayed there overnight to get the most of the city and take part in the Pommery champagne house tour. Drive through the grand Marne valley to see the stunning Champagne vines and also see the major Champagne houses. Although you will find "local" champagne houses about 15 minutes drive from the cottage.

Would we go back? Yes. It's a part of France that we hadn't explored before and really enjoyed the very rural and agricultural countryside. And the drive from Calais was about 4.5hrs and very easy.

May Half Term 2015

  • 5 of 5

I took my family to France for the half term, thinking whether the children would like this type of holiday compared to a beach holiday - I was so glad by the end of the week the children loved it. The cottage was amazing, stunning and set in beautiful surroundings. The cottage was well equipped and everything that you would ask for like home from home - so had no problems with anything there. The property is to a very high standard and therefore was very please - especially as it had Wi-Fi as my daughter and son took their IPADS. The owners have a black book at the cottage and it tells you everything that you can do within the area and the surrounding places to visit - excellent explanation - Our visit consisted of two days in Paris, Nigoland and also a day trip to Dijon plus visits to the local hypermarkets in a nearby village which was about 20 mins drive from the cottage. We did not fit everything in that was advised in the black book at the cottage so would love to go back to visit the champagne vine yards and other major town/cities etc which are not too far away. I must say that the road in France are a pleasure to drive on as this was my 1st driving holiday.
