Domaine Richot has two self-catering cottages, with outdoor pool and gardens, sitting in the centre of Aubepierre-sur-Aube. Only 320 miles (4 hours' drive) from Calais, this peaceful, rural village is situated on the border of Burgundy and Champagne-Ardenne, in France's newest National Park. 'La Tonnellerie' and 'L'Entrepot' sit within the walled grounds of a former wine merchant's property in the centre of the village. There is plenty of privacy and space for secure parking, with 2 acres of gardens, a 12m x 6m secluded outdoor pool, a large wooden climbing frame and grass badminton court. Both houses have been tastefully renovated with a vintage French feel and authentic (child friendly) furniture. 

L'Entrepot is a 3 bedroom self-catering house, with outdoor pool and gardens, only 320 miles (4 hours' drive) from Calais, on easy motorways. It sits within the Domaine Richot, along with its sister property (La Tonnellerie) in the walled grounds of a former wine merchant’s property in the centre of the village. There is plenty of space for secure parking, with 2 acres of communal gardens, an outdoor 12m x 6m secluded pool, grass badminton court, TT table and large 'Treetops' climbing frame. Both houses are some distance apart and so they can either be rented separately, or together in the case of two families holidaying at the same time.

Aubepierre-sur-Aube is a peaceful, rural village situated on the northern tip of Burgundy, in France’s newest National Park - 'Parc National de forêts en Champagne et Bourgogne'. Surrounded by rolling countryside, forest and farmland, it is an ideal place for lovers of the outdoors, with close proximity to historic towns and sites of interest, as well as local vineyards. Being placed on the Champagne/Burgundy border, you can enjoy what both wine regions have to offer in terms of visits and degustations; and the historic towns of Chaumont and Langres (the 'Carcassonne of the North') are half an hour away. The beautiful old towns of Troyes, Beaune and Dijon are only an hour away, and well worth a visit.

It is undeniably a fantastic region for cyclists of all levels, with a vast range of possible routes of all distances on ridiculously quiet roads and forest tracks . Guided rides can be arranged with a local triathlon enthusiast. Mushroom foragers and birdwatchers will not be disappointed either! There is a café & shop in the village which supplies fresh bread and croissants daily on demand. There is also a tennis court & trout fishing in the village, with a wider range of services (& excellent golf) in neighbouring Arc-en-Barrois.

The house has been tastefully renovated with a vintage French feel and authentic (child friendly) furniture. It comprises a large open-plan lounge and dining room (kitted with Bose ipod speakers, large flat-screen TV, and DVD player) and separate kitchen (fully equipped with simple white crockery and practical cooking pans). Wi-fi is fast and reliable.There are three bedrooms and one bathroom on the first floor with an additional wc/shower room and laundry room on the ground floor.

We have aimed to make the houses as we would like to find a holiday home ourselves: with quality bedding and towels (NB pool towels are not included) and a practical feel to the everyday running of the kitchen and bathrooms. There are always teabags, sugar and milk on your arrival to ensure the beginnings of a comfortable stay.

A 10% deposit is required to confirm a reservation, and the balance is payable 4 weeks before your holiday begins along with a refundable £250 deposit.

Pets allowed by arrangement.

Local Attractions

Cycling:
This is fantastic countryside for both road and off-road cycling, with almost zero traffic. There is a selection of bikes of various sizes and age at the house, which you are welcome to borrow by arrangement, but completely at your own risk. Please ask Catherine for the key to the barn where the bikes are housed. If you are keen cyclists, however, we highly recommend that you bring your own bikes to properly discover the area. There is a selection of local IGN maps at your disposal so you can plan routes before setting out!

As already mentionned, there is a local English cycling and triathlon enthusiast who would be happy to guide you on routes in the area, should you so wish. If you're a keen cyclist we can also share local routes with you (via Strava).

Fishing:
There is a choice of fishing venues locally, either in the local river or in a private lake. The river requires a day permit from the village shop, and the private lake is by arrangement with the local farmer. For a guaranteed “catch” you can drive (or cycle) to one of the nearby fisheries where you can choose either to catch your own (borrowed rods) or have them net one for you. The nearest is c.15mins north in Veuxhalles-sur-Aube. Follow the signs for “pèche à la truite”.

Golf:
There is a 9-hole golf course in the grounds of an 18th century chateau, in Arc-en-Barrois, which is reputed to be a very challenging and highly picturesque course. Day tickets are available.

Restaurants
There are a couple of good restaurants serving local fare in the neighbouring village of Arc-en-Barrois: ‘L’Hotel du Parc’ in the main square and ‘Le Coq d’Argent’ just along from the pharmacy.

If you like pizzas, you could try the mobile pizza van which calls through Arc on a Monday and Giey-sur-Aujon on Wednesday nights.

You can also eat well in restaurants in Chaumont (‘Le Saint Hubert’) and Langres.

Tennis:
There is a village tennis court (free to use), and more courts in Arc-en-Barrois. Tennis rackets and balls are kept in the cupboard, in the garage housing the TT table, for guests to use should they wish. Bats for the TT table and rackets for the grass badminton court are also housed in the same cupboard.

Walking:
This is a hugely forested region with many old medieval villages to be explored on foot. There is a plethora of wildlife – birds, red squirrels, deer and wild boar, though you will do very well to actually spot any game (other than at night on the road). The forests are reliable providers of mushrooms in the summer and autumn, particularly ceps and chanterelles for adept mycologists (if in doubt – verify any species you intend to eat at the pharmacy in Arc-en-Barrois). There is a selection of French IGN maps (1:25,000) in both properties.
