In summer 2015 we enjoyed a lovely 1 week stay in this very nice and well equipped house in the centre of France. The garden is soo spacious and private. Within small distance of the house are many nice villages, lakes and markets to visit. We were totally relaxed after our week here and look forward to another stay.
