Charming guesthouse room with a private entrance in a mid-18th century Farrier's farmhouse. Located in a quaint village 1h from Paris, nestled between Fontainebleau and the Yonne region of Burgundy. Room Service breakfast included. Table d'hôte on request.
In the heart of our small village of Montmachoux, our property includes 2 homes, our main house and a guesthouse. The room is located in the guesthouse and has an independent entrance so guests are welcome to come and go as they please without any disruption. The room is a comfortable size with a queen bed, a sitting area with a single daybed, and a private bathroom with shower.
A continental breakfast is included for 2 guests, served either in your room or on the terrace, weather permitting. Guests indicate the time they would like their breakfast and can choose from a nice selection high-quality products including fresh bread and pastries, free-range eggs from our neighbour, seasonal fruit, organic yogurt, local honey, home made preserves, fine teas and coffee etc.
The guesthouse room is on the ground floor looking on to the terrace, with no vis-a-vis. We invite our guests to take advantage of the outdoor spaces: have breakfast on the terrace to the chirping of busy morning birds, read a book in the hammock under the old birch tree in the back yard, or sip an apéro as the sun goes down over the gardens.

We love to chat and get to know our guests, but are also respectful of your privacy and value discretion.
We speak fluent French, English and Spanish and are pleased to assist guests in any way leading up to and during your stay.
We can help organise day trips to visit the famous Châteaux of Fontainebleau and Vaux-le-Vicomte, the picturesque villages of Moret-sur-Loing, Burron Marlotte, Barbizon, Samois sur Seine and Grez sur Loing, the medieval city of Provins, the gothic cathedral in Sens and the half-timbered buildings of Troyes. Paris is also feasible as a day trip by tarin and we can share plenty of insider tips and recommendations to make the best of the City of Lights.
Locally, we can suggest outings and assist guests in arranging various activities such as antiquing, pick-your-own farmer's market, horseback riding, hiking, rock climbing, swimming, kayaking, golf, petting farm, ropes course etc.
We are happy to suggest restaurants at all price ranges, some within a 10 minute drive and other exciting options in near Fontainebleau within a 30 minute drive.
We also offer a small apéro menu including charcuterie, cheese and wine which you can enjoy in the comfort of you room or outside in the garden.
Upon advanced request, we can arrange a 'table d'hôte' : group lunches or dinners in our main house or outside on the terrace. We come from a restaurant background and love to entertain, so this comes naturally to us. We ask for a minimum of 4 adults / maximum 12 adults. Set menus and prices are organised together with guests in advance. We use only the freshest ingredients and prioritise locally grown produce and high-quality fish and meat.
Our village is very calm and quiet, and the room is located in a private guesthouse. With that said, we do have two young children of our own who play in the garden. We will do our utmost to reasonably limit noise during bookings, but also ask guests' understanding as are not a hotel, we are a family who is happy to open our home :)
I am American, originally from Vermont, and have been living in France since 2004, now married to a Frenchman with two adorable children. After spending 10 years in Paris, we moved our family to the countryside 1 hour outside of the city to take advantage of more space, nature and a wholesome lifestyle. I am a luxury fashion business strategist and my husband is a restauranteur, we now both work predominantly from home. We enjoy welcoming travelers to our bucolic village who are in search of an authentic French experience. Located in a renovated 19th century farrier's stable, our guesthouse room is charming and tranquil. We also enjoy travelling, both for work and for pleasure. We are open minded and adventurous and love new experiences. We especially love to eat our way through our travels and discover local cuisine.
