  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this gorgeous cottage for the whole of Nov/Dec. It's in a beautiful spot, tucked away in a friendly little hamlet. Spoilt for choice for quiet walks for us and the 3 dogs. Boussac, with its very impressive chateau, weekly market in the charming town square and supermarket, amongst other things is only a 15 mins drive away or if you're a shopoholic, the city of Montluçon, is about 40 mins. The cottage itself, which sits in the middle of its good sized garden, overlooking a small lake, had absolutely everything we needed and more. A fantastic choice of DVDs, music cds, games. A well equipped kitchen, internet, French and English tv.

Surely the best thing about the cottage are the owners themselves, Bev and Dave. Excellent hosts, who went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. Nothing was too much trouble. If you get the chance to see Bev singing with the band on a 'Rock and Beaujolais' night then you must go! We had a fantastic night, a lively mix of French and English, dancing, a wonderful atmosphere. Highly recommended!

We would most definitely recommend a stay here, whatever the time of year, there is plenty to see and do, friendly people to meet and we left with great reluctance but love the area so much we only left to move into our own property not far away!

Owner's Response: Thankyou guys for the lovely review. It was a pleasure to host you and your four legged furry friends. We were a little nervous about hosting the three poochies but we hardly noticed they had been there, bless their hearts. Good luck in your new home and thanks for looking after our little place so well xx Fabulous guests that left everything very clean and tidy, considering that they had stayed 2 months with 3 dogs. It's tremendously important that our guests are comfortable but that they treat the cottage with respect. Perfect long-term guests.
