Holiday Rental House -
6 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12
Ousson-sur-Loire, Loiret, Centre-Val de Loire
The house is at the end of a quiet no through lane, near vineyards, in the charming mediaeval village of Ousson sur Loire. It sits on a most beautiful stretch of the river opposite a nature reserve which supports ospreys, herons and beavers. The village has two bars, a good restaurant and a great supermarket five minutes by car with wonderful fresh fish and produce.<BR><BR>Within five kilometres, there are three small towns Chatillon sur Loire, Bonny sur Loire and Briare that all have restaurants and hold street markets at least once a week. Excellent river fishing (local permits available), great cycle rides along the river and canals, tennis, dune buggies and canoeing nearby.

Another wonderful holiday in this lovely house set on the banks of the Loire. Although the weather had been exceptionally hot in previous holidays here the week we stayed this year was exceptionally wet!! However, this did not stop us having a great holiday.
