                                                                                            This well equipped gite is situated in a quiet corner of deepest rural France. As a barn conversion it provides very spacious generous accommodation and lovely gardens to stroll around and sit in late into the night watching the stars appear in a coal-black sky, uncorrupted by light pollution. Hosts Adrian and Shamsiah are attentive and helpful without being intrusive, they manage to get the balance just right. The beautiful medieval villages and towns, the intriguing history of the region and the proximity of rivers and volcanic landscape (a day out to Puy de Dômes is a must) make this undiscovered area a gem awaiting the wave of commercialisation that tourism will, one day, surely bring. Paddle down the Allier in the C2 canoe to Apremont, it's well worth it! The only criticism I would make is nothing to do with the gite. If you're an angler and you read the tourist rhetoric, you'll think that this area is great for fishing- it's not! Most of the lakes are private and the Allier is very hard fishing. Fly fishing on the Sioule is the best option in the South of the region. If you like your French experience unsullied, calm, traditional and tranquil, this gite is for you!

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! Paul & Val
