We had a wonderful holiday in lovely surroundings. There were 6 of us including 2 young children. The gite/cottage is lovely with 3 large bedrooms upstairs, living/dining room, kitchen and shower room downstairs. We had full use of the whole garden and swimming pool - shared with the owners - Annie and Alex are lovely, warm people who were very welcoming.
The grandchildren loved the pool which can be open air or used in the rain with the cover over it. The pool area can be locked so is very safe and there are lots of inflatable toys for the pool. There are swings in the garden and toys and plenty of space for kids to play in. Everything was provide from towels, tea towels to washing up liquid and toilet rolls Free wifi is provided, there is a TV and board games in the cupboard. When we arrived there were 2 bottles of local wine in the fridge for us. Annie and Alex only speak a little English and we don't speak much French but we got by with Google Translate and sign language. Chaulgnes is a small village but there is a boulangerie and small supermarket. A big thank you to Annie and Alex
We spent a lovely week staying in this cottage.
The location was delightful, with great views over the valley. The rear garden is great for kids with a large lawn and plenty of room for them to run around on, but it is also ideal for outside eating with table and chairs or indeed a pic-nic under the trees.
Across the lane at the front of the house there is an orchard with great bird life and red squirrels, with the valley stretching out beyond.
The owner was exceptionally helpful and very friendly. He went out of his way to give us information on the area and advice on where to visit and where to shop. He really was outstandingly helpful.
The house is very spacious and we found that we had everything that we needed.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this property if you are seeking a base to visit the Morven national park, the many chateaux in the area, Vezelay and Guedelon which are both within easy reach.
