We were a extended family group of 22 aged 7 months to 83 years. The chateau is extremely well setup with everything you could possibly need from a cot and baby seats to swings, ping pong, pétanque, tennis and a beautiful pool. Loads of kitchen stuff and plenty of room for us inside and out to either be together or have our own space. We ate outside for breakfast, lunch and supper and had arranged for Odile who looks after the chateau to cook for us each evening which was such a treat and always delicious. The house and gardens and their complete privacy make it a pretty exceptional place to spend time together. We didn’t want our week to end. Many thanks to Ivan for fielding our many questions prior to arrival and for sharing his wonderful house with us.
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 There are two places to eat, a good small patisserie and small store (beware some stuff is out of date, but it's worth going into).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.
