The house

  • Quiet, rural area with some agricultural activity

La maison du Cerf ( the house of the deer) located in the heart of France is a charming chambre d'hôtes located in a sturdy old farmhouse surrounded by a beautiful 2-hectare garden.
We have 5 guest rooms equipped with all modern comforts, all with private bathrooms. 3 rooms are family rooms where you can stay with 3 or 4 people.

La maison du Cerf has a small structure, we receive a maximum of 15 people, so you have all the space you need to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Our spacious house originally has a sturdy and authentic character, but is playfully and colourfully decorated, giving it a very unique feel.
We like to pay personal attention to our guests; we are happy to tell you about the area and which trips you can make. Only if you want to, of course; we respect it if you prefer to make your own plans.
There is a lot to do in the area, but if you just want to relax, enjoy good food and do nothing at all, then you're in the right place too. We have a library where you can select a book or magazine to read in a lazy chair or in a hammock under the fruit trees. Can you imagine it?

In front of our house is a beautiful 2-hectare tree garden where you can relax. You will often be joined by our chickens and our friendly dog. In the house, we have several public areas especially for you: the library, the living room and a large lounge/games room. So you don't have to stay in your room if you don't want to go out for once. Our swimming pond will be ready by the end of April.
Our house is your house , we like you to feel at home here.

Information on the rooms:
2 2-bed rooms and 3 spacious 3-bed rooms. Placing an extra bed is possible.
There is 1 room on the ground floor which is also suitable for guests with limited mobility.
The rooms are attractively and creatively furnished with high-quality boxsprings (1.60 x 2.00 with lit jumeaux duvets). You will definitely enjoy lying here!
Each room has its own bathroom with washbasin, shower and toilet.

    De kamers zijn onwijs schoon en fijn! Het is een mooie authentieke plek, zeker aan te raden met honden. De ruime omheinde tuin is prachtig en heerlijk om in te zitten. Peter en Jolanda zijn heel vriendelijk en kunnen geweldig koken! 😁

  • 10 stars

    Een heerlijke en mooie chambre d'hotes in een verrassend leuke omgeving!
    Onze kamer Beaumerle was erg ruim, comfortabel en lekker koel tijdens de warme dagen. Het huis (voormalige boerderij) is erg sfeervol ingericht en is van alle gemakken voorzien. Daarnaast heeft het een schitterende grote tuin met goede zon- en schaduwplaatsen én privacy voor iedereen die dat wil.
    Aan de eettafel buiten hebben wij vele gezellige uurtjes door gebracht mn. tijdens het avondeten. Het avondeten (3 gangen!) is overigens zeer goed en afwisselend.
    De omgeving bied veel mogelijkheden voor allerlei activiteiten zowel vlakbij Urciers als wat verder weg. De gastvrijheid van Jolanda en Peter is TOP! De huis-hond Benz (onze favoriet), een lieve Friese Stabij, is steeds gezellig aanwezig op het erf.

    Voor de derde keer bezochten we de heerlijke B&B van Lucia en Anthony. Het voelde als thuiskomen. Grote ruime gratis parkeerplek. De hartelijke ontvangst, grote tuin, gezellige zitjes en de grote tafel buiten: alles was zoals we van Lucia en Anthony kenden tiptop verzorgd. Gezellig bijpraten bij een drankje. Anthony: je Nederlands gaat met sprongen vooruit! Chapeau. De wifi-verbinding is zeer goed. De kamer met het uitstekende bed was nog even sfeervol als we hem kenden. We hebben heerlijk geslapen met alleen het geluid van de krekels en de uilen. En dat uitgebreide ontbijt...….. en die heerlijke koffie...…..We zijn van plan nog het "Franse pad" te komen lopen of fietsen (www.hetfransepad.com). Mooi arrangement. En jullie blijven ons vaste adres voor onze reizen verder naar het zuiden. Dank voor alles. Het was weer super!

The surrounding area is full of nice restaurants, both traditional and culinary.

But you can also have a picnic while enjoying our delicious drinks.
We also have a beautiful guest kitchen where you can prepare a simple meal or a delicious lunch on the days that we do not cook.
