A delightful stay despite poor weather. Jocelyn was a very welcoming host and made us feel "at home"

5 of 5
This property is set in a delightful garden, ideal for taking meals outside. The house is very comfortable and everything necessary is provided. There is one bathroom with a good shower. The cooking facilities are sufficient for holiday use. We stored our bicycles in the shed. Car parking is opposite in lay-bys. The canal tow path is on one side of the property and the river Loire just across the road. So this I a good base from which to explore this part of the Loire Valley and to visit Sancerre/ Pouilly.

Tranquil Idyll

5 of 5
This well equipped gite is situated in a quiet corner of deepest rural France. As a barn conversion it provides very spacious generous accommodation and lovely gardens to stroll around and sit in late into the night watching the stars appear in a coal-black sky, uncorrupted by light pollution. Hosts Adrian and Shamsiah are attentive and helpful without being intrusive, they manage to get the balance just right. The beautiful medieval villages and towns, the intriguing history of the region and the proximity of rivers and volcanic landscape (a day out to Puy de Dômes is a must) make this undiscovered area a gem awaiting the wave of commercialisation that tourism will, one day, surely bring. Paddle down the Allier in the C2 canoe to Apremont, it's well worth it! The only criticism I would make is nothing to do with the gite. If you're an angler and you read the tourist rhetoric, you'll think that this area is great for fishing- it's not! Most of the lakes are private and the Allier is very hard fishing. Fly fishing on the Sioule is the best option in the South of the region. If you like your French experience unsullied, calm, traditional and tranquil, this gite is for you!
