Pretty Cottage, with shared courtyard for parking. Private south facing garden with large terrace, lovely sunsets across the open fields at the back. Friendly owners who live in the adjoining cottage.
Definitely need a car as there are no shops or facilities in the hamlet, but there is easy access to main roads which makes exploring the area easy.
Internally the cottage furnishings are worn and dated. There is a downstairs bathroom at the opposite end of the house from the upstairs bedrooms, which makes quite a trek if you have to get up in the night.
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 There are two places to eat, a good small patisserie and small store (beware some stuff is out of date, but it's worth going into).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.
