If you are looking to experience a French village life, this is the place for you. Our beautiful house is located in the middle of a small historic village in the southern area of the Champagne region and is a perfect place to base yourselves whilst exploring this culturally rich region of France. Walk, cycle or sail in the stunning Orient Forest and lake district, sip champagne at the many champagne houses, bargain shop at factory outlets of Troyes or take the kids to Nigloland amusement park.
The house was lovingly built from the old stone of an historic Inn and horse changing station that was in our family for over 200 years, so throughout the house you will see features that celebrate this history. This 2 story house, centres around the main living area, which is open planned with vaulted ceilings and plenty of light and access to the surrounding gardens. The house is located in the centre of the village of Lesmont, in the heart of the Champagne region, right next to an historic "Halle" , a beautiful little historic church and a pathway that leads you down to the Aube river, where in Summer you can have a cool swim or try your hand at fishing. Our place is good for couples, families (with kids) and big groups traveling together and comfortably sleeps 8 people. There is also a free underground garage that can hold up to 3 cars and a car port for up to 2 cars.

Audrey lives nearby, so if you require any further assistance during your stay, you can always give Audrey or Benoit, her husband, a call.

The town is quite small with only a few shops and about 300 residents. There is a great local bakery (patisserie) where you can get basic supplies as well as delicious bread and pastries. There is also a petrol station and a roadhouse restaurant in town. For groceries, we would recommend driving 10 mins down the road to Brienne Le Chateau, where you will find 3 major supermarkets, banks, restaurants, pharmacies and anything else you may require.
I love traveling, cooking and enjoying good food and wine with friends and love meeting interesting people! Everyone has a story and I love hearing all about them - every person I have met along my journey are amazing in their own ways - how brilliant!
I enjoy a good hearty discussion about anything - even the taboo dinner table subjects of politics and religion.
I am an avid music listener and a devoted dog lover and can't think of life without both of them. My dog currently is a beautiful black Labrador Kelpie cross called Oscar, and I think he is the most beautiful dog ever- biased view of course!
I believe you should never stop learning and trying new things, which I do often.
I love my friends and family and think I am a loyal friend and good sister and daughter.
I am passionate about tourism and travel, having traveled all my life - thanks predominately to my parents who started us off on this love affair with travel, when we were very young.
The best experiences I have ever had when traveling is meeting the locals and learning about them and their history. AirBNB has helped bring these experiences to all travelers and today I mainly stay at AirBNB places when I travel.
So when we decided to put our family home in France up as an AirBNB home, we wanted to make sure our guests are well cared for and can meet and engage with our family. Although I am not on site much, my wonderful cousins Audrey and Benoit are our on site managers in France, so that we can still give our guests a family welcome. France and especially the Champagne is a very special place for us as our family has been in the village of Lesmont for generations so we are delighted to be able to share it with others who come. And visitors really should not miss out on the great food, stunning countryside and the best champagne in the world!!!
To finish off my monologue, I close with my favourite life motto quotes of all time comes from the inspirational Nelson Mandela: Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are all powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually who are we not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. We are all meant to shine as children do. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
