I could have stayed another month!
Just delightful! Felt like waking up in a castle every morning. Pleasant & unobtrusive hosts, pretty garden, good boulongeries and lovely countryside.
We've recently returned from a fantastic stay at the cottage in Yzeures-sur-Creuse and enjoyed every minute. We were made to feel extremely welcome by Linda and David the hosts. Linda was so helpful with everything, full of good advice and nothing was too much trouble for her. The cottage is in a great position, with a handy super market just 5 minutes away. The typically French village is charming and just a short drive from some beautiful neighbouring villages such as Angles sur l'Anglin where you can enjoy the gorgeous l'Anglin river and even have a paddle. The cottage itself is delightful and decorated with pretty pieces of hand painted furniture and it is well equipped to cook a home cooked meal along with a lovely little table and chairs to enjoy the garden.
Thank you Linda and David for a lovely holiday.
Calme et beau
Maison douillette nichée dans un très mignon jardin
Je suis tres contente vous avez aimee la maison et le jardin qui sont au centre du village avec tous les commerces tres proches.
deception entre photo de présentation et réalité
tout d'abord nous sommes arrivés à Yseures à 16h, et nous avons du attendre après plusieurs tentatives d'appels téléphoniques vers les propriétaires une réponse à 17h, ils avaient oublié cette réservation, ensuite encore une attente d' une heure, le temps de leur retour, soit une entrée dans les lieux à 18h. Deception supplémentaire quand nous avons découvert l'environnement entre cette belle façade de la photo et de la réalité!! petite cour intérieure, vis a vis à 4 mètres du derrière de la boutique et atelier des propriétaires possédant une brocante. Dommage que nous ne pouvons pas mettre une photo de la réalité, entassement de pots de fleurs, outils divers, fenêtres et portes donnant sur la location...en quittant cette location nous l'avons dit aux propriétaires mais visiblement pas affectés par nos remarques. Cette location pour deux personnes peut être très bien, mais pour 4 un paravent est mis à disposition dans la pièce de vie faisant office de cuisine et salon. Point positif, idéalement situé dans le bourg d'Yseures, En toute honnêteté le prix de cette location est plus qu' excessive,
Gîte agréable avec petit jardin clos
Le seul petit souci avec ce gîte c'est le vis à vis. Sinon, l'ambiance est paisible. Les chaînes de la télé sont uniquement anglaises ! Gîte propre et joliment décoré.
