2 weeks stay - excellent

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Le Trait. Iris & Rudy were both very nice and helpful as we were looking to purchase a house.

The gite, garden and pool were perfect and very comfortable and clean and fantastic views. We loved the 2 weeks in Ids St Roch and would highly recommend this gite. The area is also beautiful with lots of lakes and views of the countryside. definitely a place to revisit

Beautiful scenary for a relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned for a lovely stay in the cottage in Le Trait. We were a party of three adults and two young children. The cottage was well equipped to meet the needs of our stay with cot and highchair provided. The inside is clean and cosy and the owners have provided a dvd player and selection of dvds which was a pleasant surprise when we had finished our own selection. However the best place to be was definitely outside enjoying the magnificent scenery and a dip in the well maintained pool. The views from the garden were breath-taking and the tranquillity of the area made our stay very relaxing!

The surrounding areas have a lot to offer which has been detailed in a guide by the owner. Tourist information booklets have also been provided to help guide you around. There is a bakery with small shop within walking distance and a restaurant in Ids Saint Roch although we found the food and atmosphere much better at the 7 soeurs in Touchay which is also accessible by foot.

We really enjoyed our week at the cottage and would definitely go back and recommend this rental to friends and family

Lovely gite in beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

Very much enjoyed our stay. Met the owners who were very friendly and thoughtful in providing excellent information. Pool was nice, and the view from the gite is wonderful. The cottage was comfortable. The Berry region is lovely, very rural and unspoilt.

Rental review Aug 2011 stay for 2 weeks

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good stay at Le Trait. House is great, so are the gardens and the new pool. The bedrooms are spacious, a very handy kitchen/diner with all we needed for 2 weeks (and I do enjoy cooking). No noise around the house. Plenty of room for the kids to run around, explore (including a meadow next door). Not really many insects either, very good shutters for black nights in the bedrooms. Washing machine and dish washers are very good.

Only a couple of downsides, although there is a TV it is only for DVDs and the downstairs shower floor does not dry very well.

There is a great view on the valley from the pool.We did not see the owners for 2 weeks. There is also a bakery and a restaurant 10 mins walk away.

I would recommend for a stay away from it all, in a place with character with a pool.

Le Trait is situated near Ids-Saint-Roch, a peaceful village in the heart of the Berry, a picturesque and unspoiled region in the center of France.

Although the house is located on a very quiet road (very low traffic), surrounded by nature and offering complete privacy, it is only a few miles away from all necessary accommodation and shops.

Le Trait is a paradise if you are looking for a tranquil and rural location, ideal for hiking and cycling but also offering plenty of possibilities for excursions and trips .

Golf: 3 golf courses in the surroundings
