Pleasant stay in this converted cottage. Well equipped with a comfortable bed and good shower in main bedroom en suite. Separate toilet off the hall. Property is 400m down a track off the main D724, which has little traffic, hence the quiet.
Good restaurants in surrounding villages. Pleasant, flat cycling in local area but beware the horse flies, which seem to like warm weather and damp from the many local étangs (lakes). Plenty of wildlife interest; look out for 'le ragondin' (coypu)
The English speaking, French owners live on site. They are friendly and helpful without ever being intrusive.
There were only three upholstered seats in the lounge and two dining chairs, which was OK for two of us. We didn't get access to the second bedroom, as the door was locked; so was the property's front door!

This a comfortable, spacious house in a quiet location on the edge of Salbris, which is a small town well situated for access to A71 and A85 motorways, with many major attractions, including Chateau de Chambord, within easy reach via quiet roads by car.
There are good supermarkets nearby, pleasant walks in the woods from nearby villages, and you can try kayaking at the Canoe-Kayak club in Salbris. There was an excellent firework display in the town to celebrate Assumption day on 15th August.
Whilst the house is pleasant and well-equipped, some of the facilities could benefit from upgrading.
