    Transportation is a bit complicated as the bus does not circulate very often. The train that takes you to Paris is a 12 minute drive. We could lend you 2 bicycles. We are a 7 minute walk from the village of Ponchon where there is a small multifunction commerce that serves as mini grocery store/bread depot/bar/snack etc.
    Noailles is the closest village that has a fantastic local farm shop, grocery store, pizzeria, bakery etc. 1 hour and a bit to Paris and 15 minutes to the low cost airport.
    The nearest city with a world renowned cathedral is Beauvais (15 minute drive)
