Beautiful cottage and gardens in peaceful location

5 of 5
Highly recommend these beautiful cottages in a peaceful rural location with wonderful gardens. Very lovely owners who care about ensuring your stay meets your expectation. Intelligently and tastefully furnished, La Lune is chocolate box pretty with the most comfortable king size bed I've stayed in away from home. The small kitchen is perfectly equipped and we cook most nights (it's France - the produce is wonderful) however there are also excellent local restaurants. Do go to L'Image in Preuilly sur Claise, owned by two brothers and a wife. The food is outstanding and the owners so friendly they spent time with us even though our French is poor. So much to see and do near Les Frippieres, please visit the remembrance centre in Maillè, where 124 villagers were killed during the second world war. A tragic story told on a film avaliable in many languages told by the survivors, it is a little known story and again the staff will spend time with you. Of course the chateaux's and wineries are excellent and Les Frippieres is the perfect Base. We don't tend to go back to places but certainly would here.
