Just what we wanted for the extended family; young ones in the old farmhouse and a cottage for the grandparents! It's got it all: lovely gardens, great swimming pool, table tennis and an excellent library. There's something for everyone in this lesser-known and unspoilt area of central France; the restaurants are good value too.
Second time to the gite, this time with my adult daughter and we both love it and the area. It's within walking distance of the mediaeval city (tiny) of St Benoit du Sault - one of the Plus Beaux Villages de France, which has essential shops and a supermarket and petrol station. The roads are excellent and empty of traffic and there are many lovely villages and hamlets to explore, all surrounded by beautiful countryside. Also not to be missed are Argenton Sur Creuse, Gargilesse and Montmorillon. The larger town of Chateauroux, and the cities of Poitiers and Limoges are within an easy drive.
The gite is basic with comfortable beds and a woodburner, a wonderful garden and a swimming pool, in a very special location. It's definitely not for those with expectations of an immaculate holiday home but we love its simple, rustic charm.
Sorry - 4 stars not 5 - because the bathroom needs updating/refreshing.
