Sweet and typically-French country home in Michelin-starred town of Verneuil-sur-Avre, in the Eure region of Upper Normandy. Three upstairs bedrooms, sleeps six. Private garden and terrace for outdoor dining. We call our home "La Maison du Bonheur", which means the house of happiness, because whether you are inside the home or outside in its lavender and honeysuckle-filled garden, this is a happy place.

El lugar

Explore the bucolic French countryside with a stay in historic Verneuil sur Avre, a town that has been voted one of the most beautiful villages in France by the Michelin Guide. The home is situated in the "centre ville," or the center of Verneuil sur Avre, so you don't need a car! And while you are close to bakeries, restaurants and cafes, the home is quiet and calm.

Disponible para huéspedes

This is our weekend country home, and we use this home ourselves on certain weekends/holidays when it is not rented out. The furnishings are tasteful and of quality. Our guests access all the home with the exception of one closet and some kitchen cupboards where we store our items that are not for guest use.

This rental is self-catering. We do not supply breakfast but can show you our favorite bakery for your morning croissants and breads. The home has everything you need to prepare meals (we love to cook!) --from a raclette service to a barbeque-- for the meals that you'd like to prepare yourself when you aren't taking advantage of the area's wonderful restaurants.

Atención a los huéspedes

We will welcome and orient you to the house and the town, and then leave the home to you and your family. We are always reachable by phone or email during your stay. There is a detailed manual in the home to make it easy to use the house and we leave plenty of sightseeing books, brochures and maps to enhance your stay in this amazing region.

Otros aspectos destacables

We require a minimum stay of three nights. We do not rent this home out longterm.

We stayed at Shelby's house for the week of my son's wedding in nearby Chaise-Dieu, and the experience couldn't have been more perfect! The house is a delightful fairy-tale village home in the heart of medieval Verneuil and has the best of all worlds -- quaint French country charm coupled with an American sensibility for conveniences and comfort (washer-dryer, TV, great wi-fi, all kinds of kitchen appliances and cook ware, etc.) . The garden is gorgeous, complete with blooming flowers and a little babbling, fish-filled pool. We spent many hours entertaining friends and family in the patio and in the cozy but spacious living room-dining area. The house is well stocked with everything we needed for a dinner party for 12, and all our French guests found the house "très charmante!" It was a special treat to have a piano! Each bedroom is bright, charmingly decorated and cheerful, and it was incredible to wake up to the bells of the cathedral and see its beautiful tower every morning. Even though while you're in the house, you feel as if you are in the country, you have the convenience of being able to easily walk to first class boulangeries, restaurants, cafes, food shops, a cinema, and a huge market in the village square on Saturday. Clearly an experienced host, Shelby leaves incredibly detailed notebook with instructions for running the house, as well as area sightseeing.

This is a treasure. Shelby's home is centrally located and a few minutes' walk to the lovely Verneuil-su-Avre town center. The creperie is a gem! The boulangerie and patissiere (light green exterior) just a wee bit down from the creperie is heaven-sent. Shelby is a gracious and wonderful hostess, with incredible information about the area.

My son & I were traveling in the French countryside & we were delighted with Shelby's beautiful home we stayed in. It was comfortable & cozy in the middle of a quaint medieval village!!! The home & village were perfect for our holiday!Shelby was very helpful with answering our questions & ensuring we had a great time. We would recommend anyone to stay there & would love to stay there again!

Nous avons été très chaleureusement accueillis par Shelby qui a pris le temps de nous présenter la maison, les équipements mis à notre disposition et de répondre à nos questions. La maison est idéalement située, à quelques rue de la place de Verneuil. Elle est décorée avec goût, spacieuse et nous avons particulièrement apprécié les extérieurs, avec cette petite fontaine où nagent les poissons... Le calme y règne et le temps y est uniquement rythmé par les cloches de l'église. Nous reviendrions sans hésiter dans cet hébergement et nous le recommandons vivement.

The house is right in the middle of Verneuil Sur Avre. A lovely old cottage that we immediately felt at home in. Everything was clean and everything that should do, worked. Towels and soap etc. were provided and there is a fully stocked kitchen. There is a well kept yard and garden with tables and chairs to sit in the sun or shade as you prefer. It feels very private in the garden, surrounded by ivy covered walls and tall hedges. A good place to relax. There is a very large cathedral fairly close to the house and which dominates the skyline of this old traditional French town. Some may not like it but I loved hearing the bells tolling for maybe 15 minute sessions on the Sunday. Complex peals which mesmerised me. The silence immediately after was exquisite. They did not ring all night, or at least we did not notice, which is good. Our host, Shelby was very helpful, very thoughtful and kind. She offered to shop for us before we arrived as we would be arriving late in the evening, and though we didn't need help during our stay I have no doubt she was on hand to do so. She has provided an informative house manual which lists and explains most things you are likely to need to know during your stay, whether it is technical stuff about washing machines and TV or local restaurant information. We would highly recommend the house, the host and the location. We had a lovely short holiday.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Verneuil sur Avre. La communication avec Shelby a été très facile et agréable, nous avons été très gentiment reçus et avec plein d'idée de choses à voir/faire, et d'endroits où manger. Un parfait accueil! Quant à la maison, elle est pleine de charme, très confortable, avec un très joli jardin où il fait bon se reposer. Vivement recommandé!

Originally from California, I moved to Paris in my twenties. I work in the field of study abroad and have been welcoming students to France for over a decade. I am a great resource for you when planning your France vacation and love to share my knowledge of Normandy (and Paris, if that is one of your stops). I have over seven years experience in hosting guests on my country home, and love helping people discover the rich history and treasures of this beautiful area.
