Le Clos

Chérêt, Aisne
Bed & Breakfast

Charmingly imperfect old family home in green pastures. Chat with Monsieur about local history, picnic by the pond, explore Champagne


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 5


Genuine country hospitality and warmth are yours in the big old house. Madame is kindly and direct; Monsieur is the communicator (mainly in French), knows his local history and loves the hunting horn. His 300-year-old family house is cosily unposh: floral curtains, French-papered walls, original wainscotting, funny old prints in bedrooms, comforting clutter in the vast living room, posters in the corridors. The master bedroom is superb, others are simple and fine; one has a ship’s shower room, all look onto green pastures. And there’s a pretty lake for picnics across the narrow road.

Large spacious Gite in quiet country setting. You are welcomed by charming hosts whose family have have lovingly cherished the house for 300 years......they have offered it to the public for almost 30 years...it has endured occupation during 2 world wars and it still it sits in a pretty little valley overlooking a small but tranquil pond. A short drive from Laon...the former capital of France and a short drive to the Western Front....this is an easy place to spend a few days. The Gite fills almost half the lower floor of the house. It has a very large living space with a well equipped kitche

Second time we have visited Le Clos. Delightfully simple but comfortable rooms with mine hosts superbly welcoming. Will be back next year.

We love old family homes like this, once no doubt very grand but now comfortable and homely. Our room was large, light and airy with a lovely view to the lake, where we saw heron. The owners were charming and helpful. Nearby Laôn is small but attractive. Definitely a place to remember on a future trip!


The site description says it all. A privilidge to stay in such a charming house and with warm-hearted hosts. Excellent dinner and breakfast.


Wonderful big old farmhouse owned by a very chatty, elderly couple who make you very welcome and yet are quite blunt at the same time. We ate, in house, and then asked Madame if it was alright if we stayed around the table and read the papers and read and did the crossword and she said "Non - ce n'est pas d'accord - we have put the heating on in your bedroom - you can go there" Can't say fairer than that! I would definitely go back again . . . . .


For our first two nights in France on this trip Le Clos was an ideal intro to rural france. Our son, wife and six years old Jules joined us from Paris for a reunion. Ideal host and hostess

Local points of interest from Michel & Monique Simonnot

  • The house is near"le Chemin des Dames" place of a famous battle during the first world war. To celebrate the century 1914-2014, our family presents a small exhibition about the area during the war.
  • Fishing: enjoy carp fishing on our private lake!
