Less than 90 minutes from the heart of Paris, you won't believe how peaceful this new farm of ours is.
A mixed farm, you'll find our six roomy canvas hideaways situated in the pasture next to cattle of the Salers breed. At Fontenille you'll also find chickens, two pigs and two goats...not forgetting Java the sheep dog and Flocon the cat.
Far from the madding crowd and despite that, so near to city life, you'll escape the daily treadmill to discover all the wild beauty of the farm's flora and fauna.
Delphine and Gregoire are most attentive hosts who will take all the time in the world to share their passion for regenerative farming.
You can go car free to Fontenille if you want. The farmers can pick up from the direct train from Paris to Anizy, a mere 80 minutes from door to door.
If you do decide to car it here, in 20 minutes you are in Laon, a fortified medieval town as well as Soissons and its legendary Vase of Clovis. You're also not far from the First World War battle field of the Chemin des Dames whilst for lovers of Champagne, Reims is an hour away.
A great source of calm and inspiration, there is a private lake on site, though unfortunately it is not set up for swimming. If you fancy a wild swim then the lake at Monampteuil is a 15 minute drive away. There are also many nice walks in the forest of St Gobain just five minutes from the farm.
There is a farm shop on site for fine fruit, vegetable, milk and local meats whilst there are board games and books available too for your stay.
