This accommodation is in a perfect position for everything in Kyoto. Short distance (30-minute walk) from Kyoto station, 5 min walk to Nishiki markets, close to Gion. Very comfortable beds 2 x western-style beds 2 x Japanese style beds in the second room, there is no lounge just Japanese style chairs on the ground which was a treat for my family. We visited during the Gion festival which is 3 nights of celebrations culminating in a parade on the 17 July, I would suggest this as a great time to visit. There are food stalls lining the streets and 1000's of people relaxing and hanging out in the streets it was amazing. Thank you to Aurore for her warm welcome our family had a great time in Kyoto.

Cet hébergement est parfaitement suitué dans Kyoto, proche de toutes accomodations. Courte distance (30 minutes à pied) de la gare de Kyoto, à 5 minutes à pied des marchés Nishiki, près de Gion. Lits très confortables 2 x lits de style occidental 2 x lits de style japonais dans la deuxième chambre, il n'y a pas de salon mais juste des chaises de style japonais sur le sol, ce qui était un régal pour ma famille. Nous avons visité le festival de Gion, qui dure trois nuits et se termine le 17 juillet par un défilé. Je dirais que c'est un excellent moment pour visiter. Il y a des stands de nourriture dans les rues et des milliers de personnes se détendent et traînent dans les rues, c'était incroyable. Merci à Aurore pour son accueil chaleureux, notre famille s’est bien amusée à Kyoto.

The machiya was fantastic for our family of four. The house itself was interesting, authentic and beautiful with its woodwork, tatami floors, rock garden and futons. The hospitality was special with the information in the house (maps), touches (basic cooking supplies) and Aurore's communication. The location was central to Kyoto as well as subways and buses. Our family thoroughly enjoyed staying here.

La machiya était fantastique pour notre famille de quatre personnes. La maison elle-même était intéressante, authentique et belle avec ses boiseries, ses sols en tatami, son jardin de pierres et ses futons. L'hospitalité était particulière avec les informations dans la maison (cartes), les contacts (fournitures de cuisine de base) et la communication d'Aurore. L'emplacement était central pour Kyoto, ainsi que pour le métro et les bus. Notre famille a vraiment apprécié notre séjour ici.
