    Description

    Les Canardeaux is well equipped and comfortable, with generous sleeping accommodation for 6 people plus a baby. The 8x4m pool has a security cover to comply with safety regulations. French windows open onto a terrace overlooking the pool and beside the barbecue area. The property is surrounded by well established conifers and there are lockable gates to the courtyard which has space for 3 parked cars. There is additional space for another car outside the gates.

    The open plan living area has comfortable leather armchairs and settee with the wood burning fire acting as a focal point on cooler evenings. The TV has French and UK channels. There is also a DVD player with a supply of DVDs. Broadband wifi internet access means you can set up your laptop here, or anywhere else in the cottage. We also have an extensive selection of novels on the landing.

    The cottage is in the southern Loire Valley at the top of a peaceful hamlet overlooking farmland and surrounded by villages with restaurants, shops and local markets. (The restaurant at Maron - 5 minutes' away - is so popular at lunchtime that it's wise to book.)

    Rural walks are on the doorstep. Turn right to walk through the fields - to the nearby village of Vouillon if you want. Alternatively turn left and in a few minutes reach the former quarry, now transformed into a nature reserve, with amazing furry hens, colourful exotic birds and two very friendly alpacas.

    Going slightly further afield, the many attractions include the historic towns of Bourges and Issoudun and a large number of highly regarded vineyards where you can taste Sauvignon Blanc wines such as Sancerre, Menetou Salon and Reuilly. Fishing, horse riding and cycling are popular pursuits in the area. Local oils are a speciality including walnut, hazelnut and rape seed. There are also gardens to visit and the beautiful black donkeys near Lignieres are a great attraction for children and adults alike.
