Like staying in a family home, only with Henri III furniture and rolling green views. Energetic hosts cook, farm, hunt, chat over champagne

Read guest comments

Ressons is home to a warm, dynamic, intelligent couple who, after a hard day's work running this big farm (Jean-Paul) or being an architect (Valérie) and tending three children, will ply you in apparently leisurely fashion with champagne, excellent dinner and conversation; they also hunt. The deeply carved Henri III furniture is an admirable family heirloom; bedrooms (two en suite) are colour-coordinated, views roll for miles and sharing facilities seems easy. A house of comfort and relaxed good manners (smoking is in the study only), whose decoration and accessories reflect the owners' travels.

"We were greeted by Valerie who invited us into her beautifully furnished farmhouse home and gave us a most welcome cup of tea. Each bedroom led onto a terraced balconey with the most extraordinary views of the surrounding countryside made even more dramatic when viewed under a clear sky covered in stars, at sunset and again at dawn. The home cooked meal following a glass of champagne was superb and we spent a most peaceful and comfortable night. Valerie was a most thoughtful and interesting hostess. Though slightly off the beaten track, we strongly recommend visiting La Ferme Ressons "

"We have been staying here for stopovers for around 16 years and still love to return. It is a peaceful character family home with plenty of privacy. Recommend having Valerie’s three course home cooked evening meal, which at €70 for three adults including a bottle of wine is excellent value for money. Dinner is always preceded by Jean-Paul sharing a bottle of champagne in the drawing room, and this is at no cost. Don’t even think about it, just book and see for yourself! "

"Valérie and Jean-Paul made us feel part of the family in this wonderfully traditional French home. The views from the farm house are stunning and there is so much space both inside and out. I recommend you opt for the dinner and spoil yourself with local Champagne as Valérie is a wonderful cook, it is some of the best home cooked food I have ever had. This is a fantastic region of France an easy weekend away from Southern England and the Ferme de Ressons is the place to stay to immerse yourself in French tradition and culture."
