A little difficult to find, quirky , but a wonderful oasis by the river. Not a five star hotel but a five star sea of tranquility. If you want to fish and catch roach up to a pound or small jack pike, only disturbed by ducks, swans, cygnets, ducklings and herons then this is wonderful place. We were able to launch our inflatable kayak but were no match for the rowers and scullers!
The cottage has everything you need and a large Auchan less than 5 minutes away.
Orleans is accessible by tram (10 minutes and 3 Euros return) with parking at Auchan.
If you want peace and quiet this is a perfect hideaway. Nathalie was a welcoming host with a lovely bottle of chilled rose!
Very comfortable sized rooms, one with king sized bed, the other with twin beds.
The rooms are within the roof so are very light filled with skylights. The rooms do not have a door between them. The shower and sink are in corner of the enormous main bedroom.
The toilet is down the beautiful staircase.
An excellent continental breakfast was provided in the dinning room or outside in good weather.
There are no cooking facilities available except for a very clean and modern barbecue
in the lovely garden. Guests can use the garden furniture, including very comfortable deckchairs.The garden is a good size and so quiet. Heaven.We think a bar fridge in the
main room would be a great benefit for picnics etc. We placed our food in Jean-Marcs fridge
but felt a bit guilty.
Our host is the most gracious and kindly man, we were charmed by him. He has a beautiful home and was very helpful.
There is a large supermarket within 5 minutes walk for supplies and it only takes 10 minutes to walk to the Cathedral. The tram runs along the nearby main artery. The train at Orleans can take you anywhere. A great place for a few days stay, particularly when its sunny, you will happily just stay in the garden and relax.
