    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
    La Maison Tranquille is to be found in the midst of the Loire countryside surrounded by old woodlands, gently rolling hills and traditional mixed farms of the Berry Region. It is a stone built cottage on two floors surrounded by a delightful sunny garden, which has been planted with sweet-scented flowers, aromatic herbs and fruit trees. Inside, the cottage has been renovated to a very high standard whilst retaining its character and charm. It has a wealth of traditional features such as the original oak roof beams and a delightful stone fireplace.

    Nestling at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, in the hamlet of Neuvy Le Barrois, it is located some 5 miles from the market town of Sancoins and some 50 minutes south of Sancerre.

    Le Petit Chez Soi, the village bar and shop, is open for daily bre...

I have to say, we were extremely fortunate with the weather during our stay in the late October half term week. By day it was pleasantly hot, and by night cold enough to justify lighting the very large wood burning stove. We had not anticipated using the paddling pool or garden toys that were provided in the"cave" but they were...

We have just returned from a week at la maison tranquille and it was a truly lovely respite from the chaos of London! Very peaceful and tucked away - but supermarket and lovely places to visit just a short cycle or drive away. Apremont is a 15minute cycle away and just beautiful. We also found it easy to visit Sancerre,... more

Management response:

Judging by the guest book you did have an adventure packed week, including a canoe trip down the Allier River! Hats off to you! I hope you have a wonderful Autumn and that you might return... more
