Guestbook comments from the manager

Quiet location with short drive to nearest town. Good facilities, not a huge amount for young children to do, so bring your own toys. Lovely area, had a good relaxing holiday.

Could not have asked for better

No complaints whatsoever. Large comfortable house, large garden (great for dog). Location excellent - near a small hamlet with quiet lanes but supermarket only 5 minutes away by car and the Canal du Nivernais only 10 minutes by car, giving good flat walking along the towpath. A house we were sorry to leave and to which we plan to return.
