Very spacious with lots of seating, every kitchen utensil you could think of. We all enjoyed having breakfast in the garden by the river, an idyllic change from city life. Locally there are lots of restaurants, bakeries and supermarkets. There are some lovely walks round the town and along the river. Local transport not too great, so would recommend having a car or cycling.
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.
