They kindly picked me up from La Souterainne train station and I viewed the cottage, it was lovely and perfect for me. I provisionally booked from October and am staying until early Jan. Linda and Sam are incredibly helpful and kind. They have been supportive in my search for a French home of my own which is great, and also recently took me to Chateroux to look around a massive brocante. The property is a good size, is lovely and clean, well maintained and nicely furnished, I've just started lighting the wood burner and it gets nice and toasty. In addition to this it has lovely clear views from the bedroom window out onto beautiful countryside. The night sky is a treat as there is little or no light pollution. Nearby is a little village with a well stocked supermarket, petrol station and pharmacy etc.. for daily commodities. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone that loves peace and quiet, and loves rural France at it's best summer or winter. I will be sad to leave.

The house was just so nice and very well equipped for the stay. It was so interesting to look round and see what a wonderful place it was and how hard the owners had worked to bring this house back to life. All the rooms were comfortable and had extra blankets for when it go cold and there is heating in all of the rooms, just keep the doors closed to keep them warm. So nice to collect the wood from the cellar and have the fire going in the evening and play board games and enjoy a glass or two ....... of wine. Outside area to the rear of the property has a nice view and listen to the water from the river and look up at the stars in the evening with not much light pollution to spoil the view.
