Photos and Description of the Chavanges vacation cottage rental

Calm and rest in 230 m² newly fully fitted wooden house

New in 2015: a large 12x4 m heated pool currently under construction will be at your disposal in April 2015.

Therefore, there is no picture of the pool but the future detailed plan of the large terrace with pool is in the picture section.

In the foothills of the plateau of the Champagne Crayeuse, Chavanges is a small village with 700 inhabitants and many shops (bakery, grocery, pharmacy, medical centre, etc.) Located 15 km from Brienne-le-Château, Chavanges is a flowered village where it is pleasant to live and rest. Its monumental Saint-Georges Church, its hall and its half-timbered houses with their “porte-rue” will not leave you indifferent to the beauty of the site.

Located in the village centre of Chavanges, our gîte “Au detour du Der” was built in 2012. This new 230 m² house is in a contemporary style. It has been built around a huge living space (living room opening onto the kitchen and the entrance) where a sweet, warm and convivial atmosphere reigns. You will particularly appreciate the Zen and relaxing atmosphere of the wood as well as the natural warmth provided by the sunrays that penetrates trough large window bays.

Everything has been designed to ensure comfort. It is a spacious functional house composed of 4 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 3 toilets and fitted to accommodate up to 10 persons.

You will fully enjoy the terrace that surrounds the house and spend pleasant moments with friends or in family. You can take your meals there but also relax and rest on deckchairs while enjoying the tranquillity of this place in the shade of the hundred-year-old horse chestnut that is in the park.

“Au detour du Der” is a labelled gîte with “4 épis Gîtes de France” and “4 Clévacances” and listed 4-star furnished tourist accommodation. By choosing a labelled accommodation, French and International customers benefit from a guarantee on the following commitment: warm welcome in a well maintained establishment and faithful and complete information about the offered services.

Close to the great Lac d’Orient and the greatest artificial lake of Europe, Lac du Der, our gîte will satisfy you with the wide range of offered activities.

Nature lovers will be delighted by the diversity of fauna and flora of our region. They will appreciate the presence and song of the Eurasian cranes from October to March. La Horre Pond, the rivers and the great lakes will delight fishing and carp fishing lovers.

Sport lovers will have many activities (parachuting in Brienne-le-Château, biking, golf, water sports, quad, horse riding, etc.)

Children will have fun in Nigloland (3rd amusement park in France) or in Accro-Der (tree climbing) or simply enjoy the many supervised beaches of our lakes.

Mothers will love shopping days in the famous outlet stores of Troyes

Everyone, with friends or in family, young and old, will love the tourist circuits of the Champagne Route, the half-timbered churches and the Memorial Charles de Gaulle without forgetting tasting of local products, the famous “Andouillette de Troyes”, the cider of Pays d’Othe, the rosé des Riceys, the Chaource, etc.

Welcome in Champagne, welcome in Aube, welcome in Chavanges, welcome to our home “Au detour du Der”.
