Fantastic week in a great place!
We spent a week here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house is well appointed and furnished both inside and out. The pool was loved by the children and there was plenty to do nearby.
Great service, lovely people
Luxury barn-conversion located inside the Morvan National Park; French equivalent to The Lake District in UK
We had one of the most relaxing weeks ever in this sympathetically converted barn with huge roaring fire. Great walking and mountain biking routes on the doorstep and village nearby with good sized supermarket and various boulangeries too. Our favourite was the immense collection of local cheeses. Wine-shopping half way between Beaune and Sancerre, we were spoiled for choice!
Planning another trip back in the Autumn.
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.
