  • We had a great time staying in the gite, it's very luxurious and in a spot away from the city so the view truly is amazing. We really enjoyed getting to know the family a little, all very lovely people. Everything, especially the kitchen, was well equipped and to a high standard.

  • Pour ceux qui aiment un lieu paisible et en pleine nature, alors c'est parfait. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le cadre, ainsi que les hçotes, vraiment très gentils et aux petits soins. Le gite est vraiment conforme aux photos. Le petit plus est que l'hçotesse propose des massages, rien de tel pour les vacances! Nous recommandons vivement!

    Salut Adeline, merci de ton enthousiasme. Ça été un vrai plaisir d'accueillir toi et Sjoerd. Vous avez bien plonger dans toutes les possibilités que le gite offre. La massage, et le taxi on été aussi notre plaisir! A la prochaine? Bisous, Paul et Marije et toutes les autres

  • We had a lovely time at Marije's gite - the location is beautiful, the apartment is a lovely design and finished to a really high standard, everything was very comfortable and well organised. Most of all Marije and her partner were wonderful hosts - really easy to communicate with and very friendly to us!

    Expect to meet a few dogs if you stay here - all with different personalities!

    If we have the opportunity we would really like to stay again and wished we could have stayed longer this time.

    Response from Marije:

    Hi, we understand your concern. And we regret what has happened. But we would like to put it into perspective: the dog is very youg and very, very playfull. In that he can be bosterious and give a nipp (its not at all like aggressivly biting). We have had dogs for over more then 30 years now and can assure you that this dog is reliable and kind of heart. We have small children ourself and they and their friends have been running in and out the house and it has never delivered any situation with the dog. But we have taken our lesson and will take care that the dogs stay behind their fence while guest are there. Best Marije and Paul

  • nous avons passé un court , mais agréable séjour dans le gîte de Marije.
    Nos hôtes étaient attentionnés ( nous les remercions d'ailleurs pour le bouquet en guise de bienvenue!), disponibles , et " pas compliqués!"
    Le gîte est comme sur les photos...impeccable pour 4 personnes.

  • My son and I were made very welcome by Marije and her lovely family. Marije couldn't have been more helpful and made our stay such a pleasure. The gite is based in a beautiful location and very comfortable - we had a fantastic stay. Thank you!

  • Our family of four, boys ages one and four, spent one week at the end of February in Marije's gite. The weather was not always agreable but we still enjoyed the surrounding countryside between vineyards and mountains. The gite is indeed comfortable and well appointed. I appreciated the the craftsmenship that went into building the house as a whole. The setting, with chickens and rabbits and plenty of space, were a pleasure for the children. Marije and Paul make excellent hosts.

  • Nous sommes un couple avec un bébé de 3 mois. Nous avons été ravi de notre séjour de 9 jours au gite très bien équipé ( cuisine avec tout le matériel, grande salle de bain avec douche et baignoire) et fort agréable ( confortable et propre). La vue est magnifique et le cadre paisible. Marije et son mari nous ont accueilli avec beaucoup d'attention et nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour à Velieux. Nous recommandons vivement ce magnifique gite et nous avons hate de revenir pour passer du bon temps!
