Regine is a very hospitable owner and we felt as if we were staying with friends. Every morning she prepared a huge selection of croissants, French bread, hot chocolate for the children etc. that we felt guilty leaving any of it! She was very eager to make us little specialities from the area, such as toast fried with egg and cinnamon.
The rooms are very pretty and the website photos don't really do them justice. Remember to shut your door, if you don't want to be surprised by the cat in the night!
There's a spacious garden to relax in, with a small pond in the middle.
Regime was very kind and took our children to the local farm, whilst she collected fresh yoghurt and cheese. Our children were able to play amongst the goats there.
One evening, we walked about 1km into Poce sur Cisse, for a meal at Les Caves de la Croix Vert, a restaurant in a troglodyte cave. There aren't many places to eat nearby, so we were grateful for somewhere within walking distance, as the drink/driving laws are very strict in France. Rather than following the road round, take a short cut by walking back down the first stretch of road from the Vovellerie, then instead of turning right, go straight ahead until the road runs out. There's a footpath down into the village. Take a torch, as the path is uneven and it's unlit.
A lovely taste of rural France, with a touch of sophistication.
