                                                                                                      La Gibardiere is a great place to stay if you're looking for a rustic retreat, with access to many places to visit. We stayed for 10 nights in July and had a great time visiting the canal at Briare, Gien, vineyards, chateaux, the potteries at La Borne and Euro Disney (for the day). I would highly recommend the Spectacle at St Fargeau in July/August. We also visited the local swimming pool at Briare twice which has a waterslide and area for small children. There are many leaflets in the house and a Helpful Tourist Information in Briare. The farmhouse is a traditional rustic French farmhouse style with space to sleep 10. We were a party of 5, which included an 11 year old and my parents who are in their 80s. There are 2 double bedrooms on the ground floor and a toilet and wet room. On the first floor there is a separate double, a large room with a double and 2 singles and a bathroom and toilet. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer (if required). In the garden there is garden furniture, a trampoline, sun loungers and BBQ available. We enjoyed a BBQ one day and ate in the huge barn where there are tables and chairs available. There is a pond/lake in the garden which is teaming with wildlife (frogs, fish, dragonflies etc) and swallows have nested in the outbuildings and it's fascinating watching them feeding in the air. The farm is a working cereal farm, which has been owned by the same family for many years. Most days there is some farm activity, however this did not interfere with what we were doing and was also interesting to watch. The farmer lives nearby, so once his work is done you are alone on the farm with LuLu the farm dog for company. LuLu is a very friendly dog who is taken for a walk daily and kept in her own barn when the farmer is not on site. The nearest supermarkets (Carrefour and Lidl), petrol and restaurants are in Briare . I would highly recommend Le Petit Saint Trop restaurant in Briare and advise booking a table as it's very popular. There's also a lovely cafe in the central square L'Agriculture where you can sit and people watch and Herve Roussel by the aqua duct is great. There are two Boulanger, a charcuterie and a bar in the local village. As this is rural France the food service hours in restaurants are pretty set, particularly at lunch time 12-2. I would definitely consider staying at La Gibardiere again during the summer and have recommended it to friends.

It was charming, super nicely renovated and there was plenty of rooms for us (10 people). The house was also super clean and very well equipped, which is always nice. Kids loved the pool, we all loved the garden and the barbecue. It was super nice to sit outside until late in the evening. The church and the bells brought a nice add to the atmosphere. One minus thing about the house for the teenagers in our family, was the location and the fact that the village is very quiet, but we had a car, so we took them to see some action every now and then :)
