We were the first to stay at Chez Ania without a car. This was not a problem for us, as we are interested in cycling and walking and like to combat increased cheese and wine consumption with a bit of exercise! The cottages are an easy 30 minute walk away from Le Grand Pressigny, which has a couple of bars and restaurants, a bakery, small grocery store and butcher. We borrowed bikes and cycled around the area with reasonable ease. Due to the bus services being linked with schools, the timetable was reduced for the summer holidays. This meant it was difficult to travel further afield by bus on a daily basis, but easy enough to get to and from the cottage at the beginning and end of our stay. The owners were happy to give us lifts if they were going somewhere interesting. The holiday was a total break away from the hectic pace of everyday life for us. Very relaxing, friendly atmosphere with everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
