    Wir (2 Familien mit insgesamt 4 Kindern) haben in Bernieul in der Picardie wunderbare 2 Wochen Urlaub verbracht. Das Quartier ist eine echte Entdeckung und mit sehr viel Liebe ausgestattet und restauriert. Es gibt reichlich Platz und einen sehr schnen kleinen Garten mit Sitz- und Grillmglichkeiten. Die Kinder konnten Tischtennis und Federball spielen und es gibt Fahrrder. Und natrlich auch noch den Wald gleich neben dem Grundstck. Alles ist also genau wie in der Beschreibung und Madame Roy , die Besitzerin ist extrem hilfsbereit und freundlich. Gelebte Gastfreundschaft im besten Sinne. Wir haben uns sehr gut aufgehoben gefhlt. Die Umgebung ist voll von sehenswerten Orten. Man kann lange und kurze Ausflge machen und bekommt jeden Tag etwas Wunderbares zu sehen. Es ist also sowohl fr Familien als auch fr Kulturinterressierte ein sehr sehr lohnenswertes Ziel. Auch mit nur wenig Franzsisch sind wir sehr gut zurecht gekommen und die Leute - ob im Restaurant oder auf dem Markt waren alle sehr herzlich und offen. In unmittelbarer Nhe gibt es auch exzellente Restaurants und im Dorf - in Laufweite einen sehr schnen kleinen Bcker. Nach Paris kann man mit dem Zug von Compiegne in 45 min fahren. Wir knnen also die Priorie in Rochefort nur allerwrmsten empfehlen und werden sicher wieder kommen. 18 August 2016 - 20:04:00

    We had a lovely happy week at this property - spacious, clean, beautifully furnished, close to many places of interest, easy for Paris, easy for Calais, friendly and helpful owner (thank you for the jams Marie-Francoise). Overall it could not have been better. We will, we hope, return. 28 July 2014 - 19:22:09

    We had a very enjoyable week in this very peaceful location. The Prieure was quirky, comfortable and full of character. The owner, Marie-Francoise, was attentive, but not intrusive. She kindly provided us with an unexpected, but very welcome, meal when we arrived late at night, having travelled through a thunderstorm from the airport. There were plenty of interesting, historical places to visit nearby, certainly more than we could fit into our week. This is an area of France we had never visited before, but it is a place and property we would certainly visit again. 29 August 2014 - 18:01:20

    My family of 4, 2 adults and 2 teenage sons had a great two weeks in Berneuil Sur Aisne at this lovely house. We found the house well equipped and full of character. We took many trips around the area and did lots of activities and found everyone to be friendly and helpful. We went into Paris twice by train from Mitry Mory which is not too far to drive and within zone 5 of the Paris RER transport network. We had never visited this area of France but we would definitely return. 01 September 2014 - 15:51:57

    La ralit du logement et de son cadre correspondent bien aux belles photos de l'annonce. Il est spacieux, bien quip et trs confortable. Situ la lisire de la fort, le calme est total et pourtant on accde en quelques minutes aux nombreuses curiosits de la rgion. Un endroit recommander et o nous reviendrons avec plaisir. 30 September 2014 - 17:23:18

    We have recently returned from a two week stay at the Prieure de Rochefort. The place is quite remote (only adjacent to a small stone village) but an incredibly beautiful setting to return to after touring the many historical sites in the area. The rooms are quite lovely and we enjoyed playing games in the 'big room' around a wood burning stove on the cooler evenings. There is an ample library in both English and French and wonder grounds to walk in. All in all, we were sad to say goodbye to the house. Above all, we really felt welcomed by the owner, Marie Francoise, who is more than willing to assist in recommending places to see in the area. She is a gem! We would definitely recommend this spot to those travelers who like to be away from it all but adjacent to some interesting places to see. 31 October 2014 - 15:49:48

    We had a lovely week in this very attractive property set in pretty garden which is a joy to stay in. Marie-Francoise is lovely - very welcoming and helpful but not at all intrusive. The jam and the rhubarb pie were delicious - thank you Marie-Francoise! Inside the house is comfortable and interesting with a brilliant huge living room upstairs. We didn't know this part of France before but it is well worth visiting - attractive countryside, towns and villages with plenty of historical interest. the boulangerie/patisserie in the village is recommended. We look forward to returning. 15 November 2014 - 10:47:30

    This is a fantastic property tucked away above a sleepy village in the woods. Marie Franoise made us feel at home from the moment we arrived at the Prieur. The location was perfect for us: a short drive from Calais, but within easy reach of Paris. We took the train into the city one day, and drove to Versailles another (in August when the Parisiennes are on holiday the infamous Priphrique is drivable!) There are numerous Great War sites within an hour's drive, such as Thiepval and many of the Somme battlefields. The 1918 was signed just a few kilometres away where there is a small museum and memorial - well worth a visit. This property is a real gem. 05 March 2015 - 20:40:43

    We hebben een prachtige week gehad in de verbouwde priorij. Kamers tiptop in orde, perfecte locatie voor rustzoekers en veel bezoekmogelijkheden steden en herinneringen eerste wereldoorlog. 25 April 2015 - 09:10:09
  10. We hebben een heerlijke week gehad. Wij waren met 3 stellen en een baby van 10 maanden. De accommodatie is prachtig, maar wel gehorig. Het ligt in een rustige omgeving. Er waren een aantal fietsen aanwezig. Ook was er een Tafeltennistafel. Voor de baby is er een campingbedje en stoeltje. De bakkerij op loopafstand in het dorp. We werden vriendelijk ontvangen Door de eigenaresse. Een aanrader. 16 May 2015 - 10:42:00

    This is a beautiful house. It is spacious, very well laid out and has everything you could possibly need for a good holiday. The garden is lovely and peaceful and our two grandchildren enjoyed running around and feeding the cow and the donkey. Madame Roy is an excellent host. She took care of us and gave good sight-seeing suggestions without being at all intrusive. There are good walks in the forest directly from the property. There is a good boulangerie in the village and a surprisingly well stocked little gift shop in the square. There are also a few useful shops including 2 supermarkets in the nearest small town (abou5 - 6 kms). Nearby towns that are worth a visit included Pierrefonds, Compiegne and Soissons. There are a lot of sites of historical interest. This was not an area of France that we knew but we enjoyed exploring it. The Pieure was a wonderful place to stay and we would thoroughly recommend it. 18 July 2015 - 22:33:53

    We arrived from our 2 half hour journey from Calais to be meet by Anibal our host for the week, he could not have been more helpful he even took us to the supermarket in his car and give us some gorgeous rhubarb and blackcurrant jam . The house itself is in a lovely location near the forest , there are few nice walks right through the forest . The house is really spacious and well furnished with everything that you would need for a family holiday. This area of France is a ideal place to explore loads of places like Peirrefond which is really gem of a place, parc asterix a theme park a hour away and Beauvais a hours drive away and well worth a visit for the cathedral alone. Would recommend this place to anyone . 18 August 2015 - 17:23:49

    Propritaire trs gentille, aide d'Anibal trs sympathique et disponible.

Ne pas rater les illuminations d'habitants dans la ville voisine . Le pre Nol devrait retrouver cette adresse , d'ailleurs c'est dj conforme au souhait du plus jeune. Merci Mme Roy et Anibal pour ce sjour plein de srnit. 27 December 2016 - 08:19:00

    La propiedad Rochefort fue una experiencia inolvidable lo mejor de la campia Francesa. Un lugar pacfico y apto para relajarse, donde pueden ir nios y jugar afuera. Las habitaciones son muy bonitas muy cmodas todo muy limpio y acogedor. Hay Panaderas y Supermercados cerca, ademas de atractivos pueblos muy cercanos donde hacer turismo local. Elisa Taylor - HONDURAS, Central America. La Sra. Marie Francoise muy gentil y siempre pendiente de que tuviramos lo necesario a nuestra disponibilidad. Lo recomiendo! 08 August 2017 - 20:00:00

    We really enjoyed our stay. It was a relaxing week for our family of 4. The property has 4 good size double bedrooms - each with en suite. Kids loved feeding the donkeys and there are some nice cycling tracks near by. 12 August 2017 - 18:08:00

    Les lieux sont trs reposants et mme dpaysants. Rien redire sur l'accueil parfait de Annibal, toujours disponible et souriant, et sur la gentillesse de la propritaire. Seuls bmols : la cuisine qui n'est pas la hauteur du gite (mais je comprends qu'elle a t calibre pour des chambres d'htes) et le mnage qui n'tait pas du tout correct dans la cuisine. Nous recommandons cette adresse pour se ressourcer pleinement au calme et proximit de nombreuses richesses culturelles et naturelles. 07 August 2017 - 19:55:00

    The facilities at the Prieur de Rochefort were fantastic. The accommodation is lovely and very spacious with that 'je ne sais quois' French style. I am not sure that the website pictures really do it justice. It easily accommodated our party of seven. We were lucky enough to have very good weather and were able to spend the warm evenings sitting out in the garden which is equally atmospheric. All the necessary luxuries were present - warm water, a dishwasher, wi-fi and a table tennis table! We only had 5 nights but were able to fit in loads including a trip to Memetz wood and the Thepval memorial (in memory of my husband's great grandfather who died there), Pierrefonds castle (including a pedalo ride for some) and the fantastic Chantilly chateau and gardens (of interest to fans of history, art and James Bond). One day we split up some to go to Amiens (for the cathedral and jewelry shopping) and others to the fascinating Wellington Quarry in Arras, followed by the Canadian Memorial and the French memorial at Notre Dame de Lorette. On the last day we visited the Armistice Museum which again contained so much of interest. It is just a few miles away from the Prieur de Rochefort. In summary, there was so much to do that I am afraid we did not have enough time to fully enjoy the facilities at the accommodation. Anibal was very helpful in his instructions and humoured the fact that I remained disorientated regarding the day of the week. He also gave us a wine recommendation! The donkeys are very characterful and we were delighted to hear that one of them was Irish (as we live in Belfast). My husband even encountered a wild boar one evening as he drove up through the forest. Overall I would recommend staying here for 2 weeks. 02 September 2017 - 18:04:00

    C est une belle demeure, au coeur de la fort. Calme et reposante qui offre 4 belles chambres avec salle d eau. Annibale nous y acceuille trs gentilment, a la fois discret et present soucieux de nos besoins. Dommage que l' equipement interieur de la cuisine manque de confort et de vaiselle (bols, flutes champagne, plat de four etc ). Les poeles et chaises seraient a changer etc). Quelques travaux prevoir pour eviter les odeurs desagreables dans une des salles d'eau. Malgre tout belle region qui offre de multiples activits culturelles et de belles randonnes pour un beau sjour. 13 January 2017 - 19:01:00
