A fabulous relaxing home from home!

  • 5 of 5

La Maison Bleu was everything I wanted and more. Set in the sleepy little village of Marie the house is nestled close to the river Creuse and it has been renovated to an excellent standard. We spent many happy hours sitting on the terrace looking up to the stars with only the occasional sound of contented snails plopping down from the hibiscus plant to break the silence. The house is spacious and well presented and with a charming rustic feel that made you feel immediately at home. I really couldn't recommend it highly enough.

tranquilité et confort

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passés un merveilleux séjour dans la petite maison bleu. Nous étions 6 personnes et nous avons tous apprécié notre séjour dans cette jolie maison entièrement refaite avec goût. Les propriétaires sont très à l'écoute et vous changent le linge toutes les semaines en vous laissant le propre dans le garage, afin de respecter votre intimité. Lors de notre arrivée, une bouteille de vin et une spécialité de la région nous attendaient ainsi que pleins de brochures sur les sites touristiques à visiter. Nous nous sommes sentis chez nous pendant ces 3 semaines. Merci
