The groundfloor bathroom comes with shower, toilet and washing machine. The fully equiped kitchen (microwave, cooker, oven, dishwasher, fridge) has access to the terrace and the garden.

Our gîte is non-smoking. Pets (well educated) are most welcome ! (except for the pool)

Free wifi in the house.

We offer our guests a personal approach : in the gite we have tourist information available for our guests, included our own favourite spots and restaurants (ex tips for the kids, restaurants where you can take your dog, ...). We always ensure a personal welcome to our guests upon their arrival to make them feel at home. We are living at about 1 km from Les Petits Berthais, so you have full privacy in the gîte but we are near enough to assist you if necessary.

Changing day = Sunday ! (convenient to avoid summer traffic jams)

We also rent out another gîte, Le Trait, situated in the nearby Ids Saint Roch, offering sleeps to 4-6 people, also with private pool. Just check out on : https://www.homeaway.co.uk/p820102

About Iris De Cauwer

Many years ago, I discovered for the first time the Berry, a region totally unknown for me. I immediately lost my heart since the Berry really represents the authentic and unspoiled french countryside I so much love.

In 2008, my husband and I decided to buy a house as a holiday home for ourselves and in 2011 we bought Le Trait, so we could offer the possibility to other people to discover this lovely region and share our passion. More recently we acquired Le Petit Berthais, renovated it and as of 2016 will also rent it out.

At the moment, we are commuting between Belgium, where we are working, and France, but we're spending our holidays and most of our weekends in the Berry. We insist on offering our guests a personal welcome and be there to give them a small tour of the house to make them feel at home !

As of 2016 we'll be moving to France permanently something we're very much looking forward to since we are feeling so very much at home in Le Berry !

Iris De Cauwer purchased this cottage in 2014

Le Petit Berthais is located at 3 km of Pruniers (a peaceful village in the heart of the Berry), in a beautiful natural setting at the edge of a forest.

The house is situated on a quiet road with very low traffic and no immediate neighbours, offering plenty of privacy. In the village center of Pruniers (3km) there is a backery (with small groceries) and a bar/restaurant Le Mirabelle.

At Lignières, a small town at about 10km, you can find all accommodations : supermarket with petrol station, restaurants and bars, wine shop, tourist office, market place (on Monday), ...

Le Petit Berthais is ideally situated for hiking and cycling but also offering plenty of possibilities for excursions, sight seeing tours and tourist attractions.

The Berry is known for its ancient castles (Valençay, Ainay-le-Vieil, Château de Meillant) and lovely traditional villages such as Argenton, Saint Benoît du Sault and Apremont sur Allier (two of the most beautiful villages in France).

Bourges and Châteauroux are cities where besides shopping, you can admire the cultural patrimony (cathedrals, museums), wander through the medieval town centers or enjoy a drink or a meal on one of the many terraces.

The nearby situated Noirlac Abbey is a well preserved gem of cistercienzer architecture !

Small winding roads will lead you to old villages where time has stood still and along romantic landscapes, so typical for rural France.

In the Creuse valley you can admire the amazing view of the meandering River Creuse among hills and rocky outcrops, the Crozant Ruins and the charming artist village of Gargilesse.

Kids will love the playful donkey museum at the Horse and Donkey Center in nearby Lignières where they can enjoy a ride on the back of a donkey or in a covered wagon.

They will also adore the zoo of Haute Touche (Obterre) offering even the possibility of a small safari tour through the parc.

Within a 30-40 km radius, you can visit 2 beautiful gardens : the medieval and romantic garden of Orsan and the lush and artistic Drulon garden.

The Berry is also the cradle of several famous19th century french authors such as George Sand and Alain Fournier. While visiting the beautiful 'Domain of Nohant' you'll still feel the presence of George Sand. In Epineuil le Fleuriel you can visit the school described by Alain Fournier in his masterpiece 'Le Grand Meaulnes'. Even if you've never read the book, you'll be able to picture the life of a 19th century schoolteacher and his family.

Last but not least the Berry is a paradise for those who enjoy good food and excellent wines at affordable prices. Most villages have a small local restaurant where you can have simple but tasteful meals for +/- 13 euros (first dish, main course, cheese and/or dessert). In the many gastronomical restaurants you can have delightful menus for around 30 to 35 euros.

The Berry is part of the Loire Valley wine region. The most famous is of course the fabulous Sancerre, but don't forget to discover the other lovely white or red wines in the region such as Reuilly, Quincy, Menetou Salon and Châteaumeillant !

More tourist information is to be found on following websites :

- www.berryprovince.fr

- www.lignieresenberry-tourisme.fr

In the gîte there are plenty of tourist guides and brochures (also in English) at your disposal and an overview of our own tips and recommendations. And of course we are more than happy to share our passion about the region and help you to plan your vacation !
