About the neighborhood
The area is ideal for walking and cycling and our favourite country restaurant is within walking a cycling distance. There are many other good inexpensive restaurants in the area. The largest oak forest in europe is a 15 minute drive with 2 lakes with sandy beaches - ideal for swimming. You can take a canoe (we provide one) down the river Allier to the village of Apremont, one of the most beautiful in France. Bourbon l'Archambault, once the seat of the Bourbon Kings with its ruined castle, swimming pool and tennis courts is 16 kms. There is Street Art City near Lurcy-Lévi (7 kms), Moulins with the National Costume Museum, a house that was closed for 100 years, now restored and open to the public, the vineyards of St Pourcain, etc.
Getting around
To get around you will definitely need a car unless you are very keen on cycling.
