“Truly 'Tranquille'”
Reviewed 21 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

What a beautiful cottage in a beautiful and peaceful part of the Cher countryside! We were woken only by cows in the field next door and the church bells, and lulled to sleep by cicadas. It seems a shame to spoil such a sleepy secret, but the owner, Dorothy was so helpful and kind and we were so much enjoyed our stay, that we felt we had to put a review on here.

The cottage itself is brilliantly equipped with all mod cons, it was a luxury to have a washing machine, dryer and dishwasher so we could spend all our time lazing in the gorgeous garden (climbing roses, herbs, nectarine tree) rather than messing around with household chores. There was also a BBQ, bikes, outdoor furniture and plenty of DVDs and CDs if the weather clouded over.

It is an easy drive to Sancerre and other wonderful wine-making regions, and there are some very beautiful towns to visit nearby. The hamlet in which the cottage is located is just 5 minutes from Apremont, a picturesque town, which vies for the title of 'most beautiful village in France'. In the hamlet there is a small bar/restaurant that serves amazing food (4 courses for 13 euros) and is a wonderful experience. The owner is hilarious and put up very well with our pathetic attempts at pronouncing the menu.

If we had one criticism, which isn't a criticism of the cottage or location, just a personal preference, there is no boulangerie in the hamlet so you have to drive to get your morning croissants, but fresh bread is available to buy from the little restaurant in the mornings so it wasn't too much of a hardship. You can also buy fresh goats cheese from the key holder at the farm, the very friendly Martine.

It is an easy drive from any of the northern ports, and we had a truly tranquil break that has left us refreshed and relaxed ... until the next one. Thank you Dorothy!

Dear Annick

Thank you so much for taking time out and leaving your wonderful review. I am so very pleased that you enjoyed the tranquility of the cottage and the countryside around.

I hope you will find the time to revisit: Paris is not too far away, just over two hours on the train, and the difference in the vibe is awesome!

Best

Dorothy
