Delightful riverside cottage set on the river Creuse. Barrou is a small market town with all local amenities within easy walking distance. These include a superb bakery, butcher and general store. There is also a cafe/restaurant which provides excellent value lunches. Other facilities include a petrol station, Post Office, School, Church, Salle des Fetes and a Mayor's office.

The cottage has a southwest facing rear terrace which directly overlooks the river. This makes a perfect setting for those summer evening barbecues. It is also ideal for observing the birds and other wildlife which inhabit this picturesque river.

The cottage has two bedrooms and by making use of the sprung double sofabed in the lounge then it can comfortably sleep six. The second bedroom has twin beds which can be joined together to make a king size double bed....

Riverside Cottage is pleasantly situated with views of the river and a quick walk to the village amenities including a pizzeria/restaurant and a boulangerie. It is clean, homely and comfortable and its location is close to many chateaux and pretty villages. We particularly enjoyed Loches, Le Grand Pessigny and La Roche Posay. Chateau d'Usse and Chateau Chenonceau are well worth... more

A quiet village just a short distance to nearby towns and well worth visiting attractions further away. Lots of information about places to visit. A very interesting rental with lots of rooms and space downstairs. The local contact Marie was very helpful. more
