A lovely, quiet gite in the midst of France Profunde ! Gite did everythng it said in the tin !
Rural area but very friendly farming neighbours. Ideal Gite for families, couples and oldies (like us !). Perfect fir a quiet relaxing time. All essential shops about 2 miles away, great Boulangerie in the main street. Best nearby market Sancoins on a Wednesday, Lurcy-Levis market very small.
This was our first visit to this part of France. The property is ideally situated for visiting Berry, the Auvergne, Burgundy as well as the local cities of Bourges, Nevers, Moulins and Clermont.
L'Ocee was exactly as described with so many amenities, to suit both couples and families alike. The house is situated in a very private situation with large grounds surrounded by fields and only a stones throw from the Troncais forest. The pool was an excellent attraction in the unusually good September weather however the range of games and facilities in the lower level are enough to keep any family occupied.
The property throughout was well maintained clean and comfortable, fully equipped and offered us both internet access and satellite TV.
Anita was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived, providing everything we would need to know about the property and let us know about the many attractions in the area, where we could go and the best way of getting there.
We liked Bourges, its wonderful Cathedral and welcoming city, The Puy de dome provided stunning views of the Auverge and surrounding countryside. Nevers was an interesting city and the nearby Troncais provided plenty of opportunity for quite walks alongside the many lakes and well situated picnic areas. Drevant has some fantastic roman remains but access was not available when we visited and the fencing around the sites is unattractive and prevented us from taking photos. There are many chateau and gardens to be visited and we would love to return again in the future.
A really lovely holiday and would recommend!
