The house is located in a quiet wooded area in the French Meuse region about 35 kilometres south of Verdun and 40 kilometres north of Toul, in the town of Varvinay.
From Utrecht ±520 km.

Varvinay is located near the
recreation area Lac de Madine in the nature reserve Parc Naturel Régional de Lorraine.

Fishing enthusiasts can also indulge themselves here. Do you like walking, cycling or horse riding? The forest and the 20 km. long path along the lake offer plenty of possibilities. For a change of scenery, you can make trips to the historical places Verdun, Metz, Toul and Nancy.


The holiday house is situated on 3.000m2 own land. The small forest next to house A (seen from the road, the left part of the house) is also part of this, as well as the meadow next to house B. In the large garden there is a cable car, swings, slide and seesaw for the children. There is also a campfire place where gathered wood can be burned. From the garden you have a splendid view over a far stretching meadow landscape with horses and sheep. Along the garden runs a small (shallow) brook.

The house is suitable for two families. Both houses have a living room, kitchen, bathroom and 3 bedrooms. The houses are separated by a double dividing door on the ground floor that can be closed from both sides, so the house is also suitable to rent as 2 separate houses.

    We hebben weer een heel leuke en ontspannen week gehad in Varvinay. Ook in de herfst is het hier prachtig! De grote houtkachel zorgde voor veel warmte en gezelligheid en in de omgeving is van alles te beleven en te zien. Metz is wat ons betreft een echte aanrader. Ook nog even reclame voor onze favoriete wijnboer in het vlakbij gelegen Creuë: https://www.domaine-meussaumont.com/ Superaardige mensen met geweldige wijn. Alles was weer goed voor elkaar, bedankt Henk en Anje :-)

    Afgelopen week hebben we met onze familie (3 stellen en 3 kleine kinderen) dit huis (A en B) gehuurd in Varvinay. We hebben een fantastische week gehad. De huizen zijn zeer compleet, bedden slapen prima en de tuin is enorm met een speeltuintje en stookplek, waar we veel gebruik van hebben gemaakt. Omdat het warm weer was, zijn we een paar keer naar Lac de Madine geweest, ook leuk voor de kleintjes met springkussenpark. Verdun (Oussuaire de Douaumont) en Metz bezocht en de loopgraven van eerste Wereldoorlog in Han-sur-Meuse. Kortom: een geweldig huis met erg vriendelijke eigenaar.
