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 There are two places to eat, a good small patisserie and small store (beware some stuff is out of date, but it's worth going into).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.
We've had a real nice stay at the gite of mr. and mrs Chatelperron. It was a quiet place and the surroundings were beautiful. Nice bedrooms (one with an en suite) and great beds. A big and fully equipped kitchen. Mr. and Mrs. Chatelperron are very nice people who are ready to help but stay at the background. They take great care of and pride in their estate. It's a quiet place but you are near to a lot of touristic places (Chambord, Cheverny, Orleans, Blois, Tours, the city of the Tarte Tatin i.e Lamotte s Beuvron, etc., etc.) It's a treat to come home to this place after a long day of touristic-exploring.
