One of four holiday cottages that line a courtyard, Les Moineaux provides the comfort of modern day renovation in an old barn at La Ferme des Tourterelles. The white walls provide the fresh and light feel whilst the old oak beams are visible on the first floor provide old worlde charme. The bedrooms are set up for four people and the pricing is provided accordingly. The second bedroom with twin beds is large enough to provide an extra single bed - price on application so that it can accommodate 5 people. In front of the cottage is a terrace with wooden garden furniture and parasol.

The white walls provide the fresh and light feel whilst the old oak beams are visible on the first floor provide old worlde charme. The bedrooms are set up for four people and the pricing is provided accordingly. The second bedroom with twin beds is large enough to provide an extra single bed - price on application so that it can accommodate 5 people. In front of the cottage is a terrace with wooden garden furniture and parasol. Privacy is offered by the surrounding flower beds and trellis supporting climbing plants such as roses, clematis and evergreen honeysuckle. The large grounds and pool mean that you can either retreat and restore yourself in the quiet rural surrounds or if you so desire, interact with any other family or group staying in the other cottages. La Ferme des Tourterelles is conveniently placed on the edge of the Champagne producing region of the Aube, giving you the opportunity to drive through the undulating country lined with vineyards and to stop for a tour and tasting of the various champagne producers. The grounds of La Ferme des Tourterelles, face the forests of the Parc Naturel Regional de la Forêt d'Orient that gives host to a variety of wildlife; birds, bats, deer (rutting season and the noise of the stags is amazing), wild boar just to name a few! Only ten minutes drive is the first of three large lakes providing the opportunity for many different water sports. One of the lakes has been reserved for nature only and is the largest lake in europe with no human habitation. A great opportunity for walking and cycling. If you are interested in soaking up the atmosphere porvided by old medieval buildings, a visit to Troyes is a must and only ten minutes away is Bar-sur-Aube, a small working rural town with much charm. Troyes hosts the largest factory outlets in europe so great for shopping particularly during the sales. Children young and old, love Nigloland (funny name but slang for hedgehog!); the third largest amusement park in France which is only five minutes away hidden in a valley and forests. It is not your typical concrete jungle that costs a fortune to entertain your family. There are rides large and small, situated at the side of paths that wind through the forest, lawns and flower beds. You can take a picnic or dine/snack reasonably at the different restaurants or fast food outlets. We have had families who have used us as a base to visit Disney land and Park Asterix. More

About the neighbourhood
Éclance is a Galois name signifying ‘a clearing in the centre of forests’. The clearing may be rather bigger than when this name was coined and is now a small rural community nestling amongst the fields as well as forests. In the 13th and 14th centuries, Éclance reached a certain importance and by the 16th century hosted two large fairs. For a small community Éclance boasts a very active social life. Virtually every month some sort of get together is organised and it has been made clear to us that our guests will be very welcome and in fact positively encouraged to attend. Éclance has its own forest and hunting lodge which provides the base for many a happy evening sat around the fire place (which dominates the centre of the room) in the winter. In addition the Place des Ancien Com...
