An unforgettable stay in this gorgeous house. We stayed for five months, with four children aged between 7 and 1. The house is really comfortable with lots of space and bedrooms, great kitchen and large TV/sitting area, a lovely terrace/balcony off the kitchen perfect for sitting at, drinking wine, eating cheese, and being in the moment. The garden is like a child's dream with so many great trees to build cubby houses in, the cows over the fence to watch, donkeys and sheep to see a few minutes walk away. The village is small and beautifully French, you feel very much like you are living with the local community and not a tourist. There is a bakery where you can get your morning bread that you can walk to each day. The walk in to town is easy. There are lots of gorgeous little villages nearby to visit. But really it's the house and the garden that will have you not wanting to leave, I would have to call the children in for dinner as they were so engrossed in all that they were surrounded by. The owners of the house are really lovely and always stayed in close contact in case there was any issue. It was a magical unforgettable stay for us, I would highly recommend it.
This was our first visit to this part of France. The property is ideally situated for visiting Berry, the Auvergne, Burgundy as well as the local cities of Bourges, Nevers, Moulins and Clermont.
L'Ocee was exactly as described with so many amenities, to suit both couples and families alike. The house is situated in a very private situation with large grounds surrounded by fields and only a stones throw from the Troncais forest. The pool was an excellent attraction in the unusually good September weather however the range of games and facilities in the lower level are enough to keep any family occupied.
The property throughout was well maintained clean and comfortable, fully equipped and offered us both internet access and satellite TV.
Anita was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived, providing everything we would need to know about the property and let us know about the many attractions in the area, where we could go and the best way of getting there.
We liked Bourges, its wonderful Cathedral and welcoming city, The Puy de dome provided stunning views of the Auverge and surrounding countryside. Nevers was an interesting city and the nearby Troncais provided plenty of opportunity for quite walks alongside the many lakes and well situated picnic areas. Drevant has some fantastic roman remains but access was not available when we visited and the fencing around the sites is unattractive and prevented us from taking photos. There are many chateau and gardens to be visited and we would love to return again in the future.
A really lovely holiday and would recommend!
