About Julie & Nicole

We are 2

Julie, retired, responsible for training in the public service in Paris, like the East, music, decorating, sewing, cooking and gardening

CHOICE BERRY

We are two accomplices, former Parisian executives, recently retired.

We had had a crush on Berry, hills, forests, farmlands and rivers and we wanted to promote this region and share with others their wealth. We take full advantage of nature and the many cultural events that take place in dream locations (castles, abbeys, gardens "remarkable")

Why Alain Fournier he celebrated Berry, why George Sand's she so loved?

Delacroix, Chopin, Franz Liszt, Alfred de Musset, Alexandre Dumas, Gustave Flaubert ... there have long stayed, with George Sand.

Honoré de Balzac has often visited Berry

Why is that? it may be that air of Berry that makes it so nice to walk in the evening, nose in the air to watch the birds ......

Julie & Nicole purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Julie & Nicole chose Cher

We have preserved and developed the stone walls, the pretty, oak, the antique fireplace Louis XVI style regional volumes of the workshop ...

In 1987, we had had a crush on was Lignières where high Sainte Jeanne de France, daughter of Louis XI and Queen of France, and the Berry so rich in sights, castles, mansions exceptional character-Jacques Coeur, Charles VII, Jean Duc de Berry, Colbert, George Sand, Alain Fournier ... and stayed where Delacroix, Chopin, Liszt, Alexandre Dumas .....

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Lignieres, and our hosts were amazing. The house itself is wonderful--it's the perfect blend of rustic and modern and was super comfortable. Would definitely stay again!

Lignieres is a lovely town and this cottage is very comfy and only 2 mins from the market square

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here in this cottage in Lignieres, it is very good quality, clean and comfortable.The owners Julie and Nicole are lovely, helpful but not intrusive.

The cottage is situated an easy 2 minute walk to the bars, restaurants, shops and market square of this pretty little town on a river.

The town is in a great situation to explore the area. We visited beautiful cathedral and churches, saw lots of wildlife on the way to

other pretty towns around, went to a couple of brocantes, did a bit of shopping etc.etc. We were a bit limited this time with an 80 year old dad in tow but found plenty to do for our 5 day stay, and enjoyed a couple of late evenings out too, yes there is a bit of life in this small town in the evenings too. There are other activities in the area such as canoeing and cycling. Maybe we will try some of those activities next time and there will definitely be a next time.

Lovely house lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

We have visited several times now and as always the house is very clean and comfortable and the hosts are welcoming and very helpful. It's just a few steps from the centre and the town is great, it has everything we need and more. Cafes, bars, restaurants, supermarket, petrol, chemists, bakers, weekly market, theatre etc.etc. Thank you once again Julie and Nicole, we had a wonderful week and it was great to see the donkey fair this time too.

Owner's Response: L'Atelier Jacques Coeur vous remercie de votre appréciation mais tiens néanmoins à apporter quelques précisions: -que nous avons averti à l'arrivée qu'en raison de travaux de mise aux normes du réseau d'eau et d'assainissement du village, une partie de la circulation est déviée vers les rues parallèles, -que lors des manifestations nationales et internationales telles que la Foire aux Ânes du Week End de Pentecôte, des Compétitions et Championnats sportifs ou équestres, la circulation dans le village est plus importante, -que la rue est en cours de classement en voie semi-piétonne, à 20 kmh, Enfin nous sommes situés au coeur du village ce qui permet d'accéder à pied aux restaurants, commerces, Pôle du cheval et de l'âne, etc....

Difficile de trouver mieux!

  • 5 of 5

L’atelier Jacques Coeur est un gîte superbe à recommander.

La maison à notre disposition est grande, confortable, aménagée

avec goût et sens pratique.

Nos hôtesses nous accueillent avec chaleur, par des attentions

délicates dès notre arrivée.

Leur joli jardin, nous a permis de jouir du soleil dans un écrin

de verdure.

La qualité du lieu, le confort du gîte et le plaisir de l’accueil

nous incitent le recommander vivement.
