The location of Villa Lundy is good for exploring Reims, all major attractions and champagne houses are within walking distance.
However I’ll mention a few disappointments from our recent stay and if they would cause concern to you I wouldn’t recommend Villa Lundy.
1. A very small dining table (with instructions don’t move it) with only 2 chairs and 1 camp stool provided doesn’t make ideal situation for 4 adults to eat together, we couldn’t.
2. We needed to wash the crockery and cutlery before we could use it as it was not clean. Also there were only 2 dinner plates for 4 adults.
3. Both wardrobes were untidily filled with the apartments supplies so no area to hang clothes without cleaning products, cleaning clothes, vacuum, buckets etc.
4. Wifi box number and password had been changed but not in the apartment English handbook we were given.
5. The couch upholstery is torn and looks unslightly and not pleasant to sit on.
A general lack of attention to detail in preparing this apartment for rental.
Didier was helpful on checkin with restaurant information. Also Raph agreed to a late checkout which we appreciated very much.
This is a very comfortable, clean, and well stocked apartment. Raphael and Didier were in constant communication and provided us with all the information we needed. The location was perfect for walking to local attractions as well as stores and restaurants. The location and off street parking was also great for day trips to the vineyards and military sites east of Reims.
I would highly recommend this apartment and I hope to return someday.
Great location just a 10 minute walk from the station in Reims and within easy reach of all the attractions, restaurants and bars. The apartment is comfortable for a family or 2 couples, although we did not use the kitchen facilities they appear pretty comprehensive. Raphael was in constant contact in the run up to our arrival and although we missed our rail connection from Paris Est we were met promptly and given full overview of everything Reims has to offer (restaurants, attractions, champagne tours etc..). Would happily recommend for a long weekend!
Stayed with my friend for our annual champagne tasting trip. Raphael was very attentive over email from the moment we booked. Didier was also very helpful when checking us in and gave us more restaurant suggestions than we possibly had time for! He also gave us a brief run down on the history of Boulevard Lundy which was very interesting.
We used the coffee machine and they had even thought to leave decaf pods which was very nice. Lots of cupboard space available in the kitchen and the standalone hob and grill worked well for our breakfasts :)
The secure parking was absolutely perfect for us and could actually be quite a nice area to sit on a hot day under the trees. The apartment is on the second floor which again was perfect for us as it gave us extra security and we were able to have the windows open during the hot nights and not worry. I should also mention that the apartment feels very secure as one has to go through 2 secure doors before actually reaching the apartment door. The wifi also worked well
There is a small Carrefour and a boulangerie within a few minutes walk - left out of the building, walk to the roundabout and take the exit where the BP garage is and they're both on your right.
Would recommend and would consider it for our 2017 trip.
Thank you Raph!
