2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Indre, Berry, Centre-Val de Loire
The Cottage is located on the outskirts of Perassay, between La Chatre and Boussac. The nearest larger village is Ste Severe sur Indre which is famous for Jacques Tati and the filming in the '50s of the film 'Jour de Fete'. The surrounding countryside of rolling hills is criss crossed by rivers, streams, walks with many natural landmarks, an absolute must for birdwatchers, walkers, fishing, cycling and history enthusiasts.
Stargazer is away from light polluting towns and cities.

If you want a chilled out week this is the place to come. The cottage has everything you will need. We just loved the tranquillity of the area and the accommodation. It's also nice that the owners live nearby for both knowledge of the area and also to assist with anything in the cottage. We would throughly recommend this cottage...

Management response:
