Cottage -
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5
Sancerre, Cher, Berry, Centre
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 bistro and bar will re-open in March with a new chef/patron. He previously ran the hi...

Spent a fantastic week here in the beautiful french countryside. We came here looking for peace and quiet & that's exactly what we got. The cottage has absolutely everything you could possibly need and we simply didn't want to leave. The little notes left around the property were a lovely touch and ensured we understood how everything worked, and the...

I am so pleased that your stay was idyllic: just what I always hope. And so glad that the village bistro adds that authentic French cuisine at the end of a two minute walk. Parfait. And thanks for posting too.

I have nothing but great things to say about this sweet French country cottage. I have travelled a lot over the years and stayed in many hotels, private homes, cottages and so forth - this property is one of my favourites. It's very quiet - if you're looking for peace, traditional French countryside, a great place to do day explorations...

How lovely of you to take the time Virginia to write a review of La Maison Tranquille! You are right, our cottage is well loved and it's good that you sensed that. It's difficult to believe but we have been there in that spot for over 20 years now and, each time we stay, we are more and more involved...

We stayed at the cottage for 4 days, using it as a base to visit Sancerre and the Pouilly region for excellent gastronomy and superb wines. There are many traditional wine makers in the area, who open the doors of their chateaux where one can taste delicious beverages. We also enjoyed Sancoins market (Saturday mornings, less than 10 minutes drive...

Thanks Marjolaine! We knew you loved it there all that time ago: it's time you came back! Best Dorothy
