We stayed here for two nights as a change to usual mid-France hotel stop-offs, and we are glad we did. Friendly owner Patrice speaks little English but aided by Ocean and Vincent - none of whom live nearby - they made us most welcome and soon explained the basics. Everything worked fine, bar the gas oven (could not light it) and kettle (could not find an off switch!) This wooden mini house is on a park, well spaced, on the edge of forest. Easily accessed, there is secure gated parking. It's near two ponds (many carp, not big but lots of them - fishing ticket just 5euro at local shop). Souvigny village is a short 10 minute walk. It's really quaint, with a church at heart of a lawned square - we saw a wedding on Saturday afternoon! There are two places to eat, a good small patisserie and small store (beware some stuff is out of date, but it's worth going into). The village brocante is a find too...a musty/dusty Aladdin's cave of tons of old stuff, run by a friendly old lady who had just taken in two orphaned tiny kittens...aah! Thanks Patrice & co, we enjoyed our stay.
We had a large group of seven families stay here during August 2017. We have done several holidays of this type and for the first time have found a place we would return to. The house is lovely and very spacious. The rooms are all quite big and most have some kind of en-suite, with several suitable for 'bunk rooms' for the kids. The downstairs living space is lovely, particularly the large lounge. Outside, the pool area is fenced, and very nicely done. The terrace at the front of the house is perfect for drinks / dinner in the evening. The grounds generally are expansive and well kept. Ivan was responsive and helpful before, during and after the holiday. We all agreed we would probably go back next year, which i guess is as good an endorsement as you can get.
