The space

Les Hirondelles is a 3 bedroom holiday cottage (gite) opened in September 2016 next to our award winning Bed and Breakfast studio L’Escapade de Marijac. Situated in Lyons-la-Forêt one of the most beautiful villages in France which dates back to the roman period, this charming house with timber beams throughout was once part of the home of the famous French cartoonist Marijac. The house sleeps 5-6. The décor throughout the gite has retained many of the 18th century features with a contemporary twist. There is free WiFi
Downstairs, the house has a farmhouse style kitchen and a living room. Both rooms have wood burning stoves. The kitchen has a dishwasher, washing machine, cooker, fridge freezer (stocked with complementary refreshments) and microwave. There is kitchenware and appliances suitable for a self-catering holiday.
The living room has a large sofa and smart television with French digital channels. The TV has USB and HDMI ports so you can plug in your own laptop if you wish. There is also a DVD player with a selection of French and English DVDs to borrow including films shot in our village.

Everything was as described. There isn't much to add as their description is so thorough. Was lovely to have bread and pastries delivered each morning and the provision of cot, changing mat, high chair and bath for our 8month old was great.

Olek and his wife were wonderful hosts. Olek gave us a wonderful tour of the house and we loved hearing about his family's history with the home. The home was even more beautiful in person than in the airbnb photos. Olek and his wife put fresh flowers in three of the rooms, which was a yet another beautiful touch. They also dried some of our damp clothes for us in their dryer on check-out day so that we wouldn't have to pack damp clothes. They provided a binder with great information about the area including lovely maps of local walks and hikes. I wish we would have stayed longer because this house, village and area were so beautiful.

Une petite maison typique et très agréable, pour un week end en famille "à la cool" à Lyons. Un grand merci à Olek qui a été véritablement aux petits soins pour nous, plein de petites attentions tout en restant très discret et très disponible.

I'm also known as "Olek" and I live next door to the bed and breakfast and am fluent in English and French. I can assist you with local tourist information and I can also act as a chauffeur to and from Beauvais or Charles de Gaulle airports or as a guide to the local WW2 crash sites.

I can also offer you table d'hote - a home cooked meal served to you in your studio room if you do not fancy visiting one of the 5 restaurants we have in our village.
