We stayed at this cottage over the New Year and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cottage was very warm and cosy, well equipped and comfortable. There was a good selection of items in the cupboard to save us getting everything we needed, i.e. salt, pepper, toilet rolls, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets and so on...... we only needed to buy the main ingredients for our meals, this was a first for us in all the cottages we have stayed in over many years. Thank you Jackie you have been so helpful and generous.
The village is pretty, there is a small supermarket (although this was closed all the time we were there) a couple of bars and easy access to the Loire. 4 miles away is an Auchan supermarket at La Charite which again is a lovely town on the banks of the Loire. Sancerre is a must town to visit. This cottage is an ideal base to explore this lovely area.
The property is perfect for a couple and has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing break in the countryside. It is very well located for exploring many areas and wonderful places of interest within reasonable travelling distance. Also, the historic town of La Charite is right on the doorstep and there is much to see and explore without the need to use your car. We did not use the many and varied restaurants in the town, preferring to take advantage of the lovely garden and barbeque our own meals with the produce available locally at the good range of shops. The owner and her family are delightful, friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble and Sylvie manages to be there with help and advice when needed and also keep very discreet to enable us to take full advantage of the facilities without intruding on our privacy. We would definitely recommend this Gite and would happily return should we wish to visit this part of France in the future.
