Hidden down lanes, behind an undulating wall, glimpsed through wrought-iron gates, is this big converted barn; Tony and Thierry have been looking after guests, with great pleasure, for years. Rambling gardens and a bountiful vegetable plot run down to wide open pasture. Under the high glass atrium of the breakfast room lies the heart of the house with wood-burner, piano and windows opening to undulating views, while peaceful and immaculate bedrooms hop from fabric-swathed opulence to a more simple country elegance. Hosted dinners are convivial and delicious; Reims, rich in history and gastronomy, is under an hour.

"Fantastic place to stay. Lovely decor. What a great job the owners have done in renovating this old barn. Very friendly reception. Memories of Tony's amazing cooking and Thierry's great sense of humour will stay with us for a long time! We will definitely be back. Only 10 mins off the motorway means it's a great place to stop on the journey to and from the UK."

"What a great place to stay. Tony and Thierry and the dogs made us very welcome. Excellent room with lovely outside sitting area. The food was delicious and the chat around the dinner table great fun. There were two of us staying that evening with dietary requirements which had been noted and well catered for. Will definitely be back and would highly recommend for a stopover on a journey or a place to make a centre for a visit to this area of France. "

"Very impressive conversion by the owners themselves from barn to superb home and excellent chambre d'hôte accommodation. Attention to detail from the warm welcome from Tony and Thierry to the comfort of the en suite room which looked out onto open countryside and the delicious and beautifully presented 4-course dinner was faultless. Breakfast was equally good and the dinner conversation between our hosts and the other two English couples staying was extremely convivial and entertaining. Highly recommended either for one or more nights."

"We received a very warm welcome when we arrived at this picturesque barn. Rooms are airy and a very good size with lovely views over the country side. The dinner was really delicious and generous with interesting and entertaining conversation. Highly recommended."

"Wonderful place for a stopover (which is what we required) but would be great for a longer stay also. Peaceful location, relaxed atmosphere and an amazing attention to detail by the owners Toni and Thierry in both the accommodation and the cuisine. This is not to be missed if you happen to require accommodation in and around Champagne."

"My wife Jean and I both felt that this was one of the best stays we have experienced on our various travels through France. We were made to very welcome by both Thierry and Tony and enjoyed fantastic a fabulous 4 course dinner in the evening followed by a wonderful nights sleep in sumptuous accommodation. We would look forward to staying here again."

"Wow. What a fabulous place to stay. Great welcome, rooms well appointed and spotless (we had the suite, which was great), truly beautiful location in rolling countryside with the river at the end of the lane, yet within easy reach of the motorway, Reims and Champagne. Dinner was a wonderful experience with tasty, well cooked food and drink in a lovely convivial and relaxed atmosphere. Hearty breakfast. Our dogs loved it too and were as welcome as we were. Tony et Thierry are perfect hosts - sorry, you will be seeing a lot more of us! "


August 2015
"Echoing other guest comments, rooms as good as a top hotel, a warm welcome from Tony and Thierry and Ipsy the dog, tea on the terrace, drinks on the terrace preceding a wonderful table d'hôte meal - don't miss this. The best by far of the combination of hotel and chamber d'hôtes on our two week road trip. We included a brief visit to the Chemin des Dames site of the Caverne du Dragon and to Reims Cathedral. Hoping to come again."

"A real warm welcome followed by a very good dinner eaten with our hosts who were charming and informative. Breakfast was equally good and was followed on request by some piano playing accompanied by a singing dog highly reccomended"

"We really enjoyed our 3 night stay with Tony & Thierry in the quiet hamlet of Cuiry-les-Chaudardes. Sleep quality was excellent as La Grange looks out onto lush fields and the River Aisne. Tony's 4 course meals are delicious and good value. The wine flows. We have never visited this part of France before and found plenty to do - champagne producers within 45 mins, the city of Reims, and oodles of World War 1 historical sites. Thierry speaks excellent English and conversation was lively and interesting. Tick tick tick"

"La Grange is a most delightful B&B, one of the best we have experienced in France. A brilliantly executed, comfortable and spotlessly clean barn conversion, situated in a small and tranquil village, ideally positioned for exploring the Champagne region. The hosts are most charming and welcoming, and the food delicious and plentiful. We would particularly recommend taking the evening meal that is offered, hosted by Thierry and Tony with lively and interesting discussion. Full marks all round! "

"Outstanding in every way. Tony and Thierry are the friendliest of hosts, the dinners are absolutely excellent, the rooms are first class and the location with rural views is magnificent. Must rank as one of the best Alastair Sawdays we've ever stayed at."

"This is a wonderful B & B! Beautiful area, wonderful hosts, out of this world food and really comfy beds! Staying at La Grange is a truly unique and special experience. Special thanks for the way Tony, Thiery and Ipsy accepted our big dog Freya! "

"My wife and I stayed 1 night at Le Grange in March on our trip en-route to Spain. The location is stunning, very quiet and relaxing. We received a warm and friendly welcome on arrival and the room we were given was warm, comfortable and very clean. Tony and Thierry were wonderful hosts, providing us with a well cooked dinner complete with lovely wine. Breakfast overlooking the beautiful landscape, was a pleasure. We'll definitely book again when next in the area. Roger and Julie Cotton"

"We stayed two nights at La grange. It's a great experience with very nice surroundings and lovely hosts. Tony and Thierry are very gentle and ready to serve you at the best. Dinner was excellent and breakfast. Tony : You are great cooker. Thierry : Excellent waiter :) We were 4 in the suite. Very clean, very comfortable and very quiet. All thumbs up for this location and looking forward going back there as it's near from the great champagne area."

"On arrival we were greeted by a smiling Thierry (who speaks excellent English) who showed us to our room. We were immediately made to feel as if we invited there as their guests rather than us booking with them- a first for me in any B&B! A lovely dinner made by Tony and a relaxing nights sleep later and we were ready to go and, after arranging an early leave with Thierry the night before, we had breakfast an hour earlier than they would usually serve it- all of this done without a moments hesitation and with a smile on their face. ll in all a little gem- thanks Tony & Thierry!"
