We are a family of 3 who stayed in hot August for 10 nights.
Top 10 elements (in no particular order):
1. The welcome. We arrived late (8pm ish) and Patrick and Jacqueline were lovely in their intro to the property. The honey, jam and figs were also lovely.
2. The house is gorgeous.
3. The hosts are friendly, kind, available if you want them to be and just lovely!
4. The lake is so peaceful. We seemed to spend hours looking at the view.
5. Nature: lots of fish (huge carp!), birds, ducks, a wandering-through deer; many varieties of tree.
6. The amenities in the house are exceptional, from an egg whisk to candles.
7. The outside verandah area is plenty big enough with 2 seating areas and sun loungers.
8. There are so many castles within a short drive!
9. We loved Orleans and Blois. Patrick told us about the P+R which was really easy to find and use to avoid parking prices in Orleans.
10. The peace. It is a serene place to stay. The occasional revving engine down the main road can be easily ignored.
Thank you Jacqueline and Patrick. We loved every aspect of our stay and would love to return next year sometime (and I wouldn't say that unless we really hoped it could happen!)
S, J and A
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 There are two places to eat, a good small patisserie and small store (beware some stuff is out of date, but it's worth going into).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.
