About this listing

This description was automatically translated from Dutch using Google Translate and may not be completely accurate.

Charming, rustic farmhouse à la campaign, - former hunting lodge from 1757 - less than 4 hours drive from Amsterdam. In the idyllic North French region of Thièrache: where it's still quiet, where you can see the stars where you can spend hours.

The space

Our charming farmhouse from 1757 is fully equipped: a kitchen kitchen with all the dishes on it (five-course stove with oven, extra oven / microwave, dishwasher, all possible equipment such as a Nespresso machine). Both in the kitchen and in the living room there is a wood burning stove. In addition, the entire house is heated quickly by the central heating. On the ground floor you enter the kitchen. Further a living room, a back room and bathroom. Through a spacious hall you go upstairs. There are 5 bedrooms: 2 single and 1 double room, a romantic bedsting (1-2 pers.), A toilet with washbasin and a private room. A large barn is bordered by the house. There are 4 bikes available and there is a ping-pong table. In the garden around there are plenty of places to relax.
There are plenty of patio furniture, there is a barbecue and in the old chestnut tree is a comfortable chair.

Guest access

The whole house is accessible except the private bedroom on the upper floor.

Interaction with guests

If we are not there to receive you, our 'angry curtains' are French. Upon request, the fridge is filled and the house is preheated.

Other things to note

The house is located in the heart of the Thièrache, a lovely area with many meadows and a forest within walking distance. You can walk for hours without practically encountering anyone. The gentle rolling coulisserie landscape is ideal for cyclists.

The region is known for its 'Églises fortifiées', fortified churches, of which the famous church in Jeantes is located 5 minutes away. You will find castles and abbeys, picturesque villages and every weekend (except in winter months) there is a brocante nearby. Nearby attractions include the Familistère (19th-century residential commune) in Guise, Saint Michel Abbey and the Matisse Museum in Le Cateau-Cambrésis. Or a day trip to the new Louvre in Lens.
For cyclists and hikers we have collected routes in a folder. In the immediate area you can climb, horse riding, mountain biking, fishing, canoeing and tennis. There are also a swimming pool, swimming lake, sauna and bowling. The Thièrache is the region of the famous Mairoilles cheese and the cider. Mari Maris, known by the successful cookbook 'De Groentebijbel', has her table d'hote 5 minutes away from the house. In Plomion, Brunehamel and Aubenton are restaurants. All imaginable supermarkets, markets, bakers, butchers are in Hirson and Vervins. In Brunehamel there is a bakery (5 minutes by car) but there is also a bakery home, around 9.45 with delicious fresh bread!

We had a great stay at Riëlle her beautiful house. It has many rooms which was very convenient with three little children, a well equiped kitchen and a very comfortable living room with a fireplace that makes us want to come back in winter. The garden is very beautiful and there is wide range of chairs, toys, Bbq stuff etc you can use. Riëlle was a great host and communicated very fast and extensive. She responded to all of our questions in a very elaborate way, gave us extra ideas for things to do with kids in the area and even answered my questions about where she got the beauty full side tables :). We highly recommend the house for both good and bad weather. The host is great and it was a shame we could not meet her. There are a lot of things to do in the area, from swimming in a lake to visiting local breweries but most of all, we recommend going for a stroll and relax in this beautiful house. A perfect place to recharge from a hectic city life. Thank you Riëlle!

We had a great time in this beautiful farmhouse. Two cosy woodburners (in the kitchen and the living room), Great rooms and peacefull environment. We really enjoyed our stay and can recommend it to everyone who loves some nice Franch villages, great nature, like to bike or just want to stay in and enjoy the farmhouse itself. Rielle even gave a nice bottle of biological cider as a welcome gift.

A beautiful house in a lovely part of France. We loved using the BBQ in the yard and enjoying the total peace and quiet. Communication was smooth and Rielle's "guardian angel" was very helpful.

Rielle's house is a very well renovated, well decorated, and very confortable. The Kitchen is fantastic to cook, the living room is cosy, the small bedrooms are are very cute for the children, and garden is perfect to play and rest...We all loved the house' soul... This place is also perfect for children as they can play inside and outside very easily and safely.The sourrounding neibourough is a beautiful and we enjoyed a lot walking in the landscape, and woods, visiting villages, and brocantes around. Rielle is a very friendly owner, we didn't meet her, but we have been welcome by a friend of her who is very friendly too. This person gave us all the informations we need, and was very helpfull. Thank you Rielle !

We hebben een fijne week gehad in het huis van Riëlle. Het is een goed onderhouden en mooi ingericht huis (en tuin), van alle gemakken voorzien. Dank Riëlle, dat we van je gastvrijheid gebruik mochten maken!

Logement très bien équipé, très agréable à vivre, bénéficiant d'un paisible jardin et de tout l'équipement nécessaire pour passer un beau séjour. La Thiérache est tout aussi plaisante à découvrir, à vélo et en famille par exemple, comme ce fût notre cas.

We hebben hier heerlijke herfstige dagen gehad met z'n vieren, mijn man, onze twee dochters van zes en vier en ik. Het is een prachtig huis waar je je meteen thuis voelt, een fijne knusse keuken en woonkamer, twee houtkachels en meer dan genoeg hout, mooi verzorgde kamers, veel (buiten)ruimte en de bakker die 's ochtends met vers brood en croissantjes aan het hek komt! We komen hier graag nog eens terug, ook om te kijken hoe mooi het in de winter/lente/zomer zal zijn...
