“Cottage du Potager”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

We stayed at the cottage for a week last summer and highly recommend it. Friendly welcome from the owners, cottage well equipped, very comfortable and spacious. Both bedrooms had their own bathroom and there was also a generous sitting area alongside each. This meant that with two teenagers, everyone had their own space but equally, there was ample seating for a larger party in the living room at night. We would definitely recommend and return. The garden area has ample furniture and my husband enjoyed talking to the friendly chickens who wandered over from the chateau. Travel into Paris was easy by train from the local station.

We loved this place, a beautiful chateau in a small french town with lots of local charm and friendly hosts. What more can you ask for? Richard and Virginie were incredibly helpful and full of advice. Virignie was born for this job, we would have stayed with them longer if we knew how nice and relaxing it would be out there. This is an ideal location to visit Chartres, Versailles and other 'suburban' attractions before going in to Paris. It is very easy to get around, dinner in Ecrosnes or Chartres is a quick trip, really an ideal place to stay. Highly recommended.

We stayed in the cottage at Jonvillier for three weeks in September / October. The layout of the cottage was great for our extended family group. it was very homely with everything needed to make for a relaxing holiday - the kitchen was particularly well equipped which made it easy for having meals at home.
Jonvillier was a great base for our trip - easy train access to Paris, easy motorway access to drive to the Loire, Disneyland, Monet's Garden, Chartres, and close to castles of Maintenon, and Rambouillet, - there are so many things to do.
Richard and Virginie were lovely hosts - the kitchen even had some essential food provisions for us when we arrived.which was a lovely touch.
We'd love to come back one day!

My husband and I stayed at Chateau Jonvilliers for six nights and we did not want to leave! The Dreux Room was spacious and very comfortable with a beautiful view from the window that overlooked the front of the property. It was quiet, relaxing and a great launching point for our travels around the area. Richard and Virginie were extremely warm and helpful with suggestions for finding gems in the area (for example, a 900 year old abbey), as well as places to shop and eat. Our favorite meal was an early picnic dinner on the back lawn of Chateau Jonvilliers purchased at the Carrefour Market (which is very close).
We hope to return for another visit someday to this charming chateau, as it is truly special.

We come to the Rambouillet area frequently to visit my elderly mother and have stayed in all the hotels in the area. Chateau de Jonvilliers is by far the best. It is a lovely small Chateau, in fabulous grounds, filled with beautiful old French furniture and art that has been in the family for generations. Virginie and her American husband Richard simply couldn't do enough to make our stay memorable and to provide information and advice. She made such a fuss of my mother when she came to pay a visit (and have a good look round!). She set up a picnic table in the grounds and my mother was thrilled to bits. There are five charming bedrooms on the top floor - we stayed in the larger Chartres room (really, it's a mini suite) - well worth the ten euros extra. Breakfast is comunal around a large table in the stunning dining room. Virginie makes everyone feel very welcome and ensures that it is a lovely friendly start to the day. It's a hugely upmarket Bed & Breakfast and not a Hotel as such but don't let that worry you unless you absolutely have to have a trouser press. This is SO much nicer than the very dull chain hotels in Rambouillet. The rooms are beautiful and well equipped with lovely bathrooms. Chartres and Rambouillet are nearby and there is a direct ttain service into Paris. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: The slightly more expensive Chartres room was fantastic with front and rear garden views and a littl...

Stayed here to 'do' the Palais de Versailles driving back up through France. So glad we did.
Lovely old house. Third generation owners. Very atmospheric and quirky. Five bedrooms on the top floor; Small guest lounge with free tea and coffee. Virginie very welcoming. Breakfast lovely, served around a large table in the dining room. Very much like staying as a house guest in a friend's home. Virginie very helpful in recommending a local restaurant. Grounds lovely. So quiet at night! OK, the building is old, but that just adds to the atmosphere.
Lovely grounds. Fell in love with the pug and its eight week old grand'daughter!

Virginie and Richard were excellent hosts. Virginie is French and Richard is from the US, and they live in the B&B which is a real chateau that has been in the family for several generations. They shared their home with us for 4 nights. They were both very helpful on tips about what to see and where to go. They gave us leaflets and brochures about places to go as well as their map of France to help us supplement our GPS and to find our way around. They told us about the light show in Chartres, which we didnt know about. And gave us good advice about seeing the Abbey in Cerney.

The chateau is decorated beautifully. We were upgraded to a wonderful room with a view of both the front and back of the estate, a private bathroom and an extra bedroom. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was well outfitted with the necessities and the towel heater was a real luxury. We were treated like family guests and would definitely recomend this B&B to anyone wanting to get away from it all. Jonvilliers is a very small village about an hour outside of Paris.
