The cottage is fully equipped, clean, comfortable ... and cool (essential as we had 2 weeks of 34C + heat!) Wonderful views from the terrace and so quiet, with beautiful, clear skies at night. Wonderful small towns to explore, with great value restaurants and pretty bars. The nearby River Lot provides opportunities for canoeing, paddling and swimming and there are plenty of local walks. The owners live nearby and are extremely friendly and helpful ... definitely a cottage and area to return to!
