Self-catering gite with private pool

Cottage/gite with oak beams and private pool

The cottage is in a hamlet famed for its creamy stone, mined first by Ancient Romans and then used to build Bourges cathedral. Nowadays the sites are home to many wild plants and one of the quarries has been made into an 'escalade' or somewhere enthusiasts go to climb, but down rather than up!

Les Canardeaux respects the old traditions with its exposed stone walls, oak beams and former bread oven (now the wine cellar), but we have added essential modern features to make your stay comfortable.

Living Area
There is a huge open plan living/dining area. The living area has comfortable leather armchairs and settee with the log fire acting as a focal point on cooler evenings. The TV has 6 French channels and a multitude of UK ones via satellite. There is also a DVD player and video player with a supply of DVDs - or bring your own. Wifi internet access means you can set up your laptop here, or anywhere else in the cottage. At the other end of this space is an oak dining table and 6 chairs.

Kitchen
The kitchen is equipped with hand mixer, halogen hob, electric oven, cooker hood, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier as well as a good range of pans and utensils.

Bedrooms
There are 4 bedrooms. The 2 downstairs bedrooms (1 single and 1 double) are along a corridor and the double room has French windows leading out onto the terrace overlooking the pool. The remaining single and double bedrooms are upstairs.

Bathroom
The bathroom is between the two upstairs bedrooms. There are separate WCs on both floors.

Utility Room
A small utility room upstairs houses the boiler, cleaning equipment, iron, ironing board and spares such as light bulbs and batteries.

Outdoors
The extensive garden is gated for privacy, sheltered by trees and looks out over open farmland at the back. There is plenty of grassy space for football, badminton and other outdoor games. The terrace, which is like an extra room in summer, is covered to offer shade, has a huge fixed table and six chairs, as well as a permanent barbeque. It is conveniently situated overlooking the pool. There are four loungers and two upright chairs alongside the pool.

Baby Equipment
A cot and high chair are provided and a second cot is available on request.

Supplies
We keep basic foodstuffs such as salt, pepper, sugar, herbs and spices and olive oil in the kitchen cupboards. Cleaning materials are also supplied as well as washing up liquid, dish cloths and toilet paper.

If you don't want to shop for provisions en route we can do it for you. Just let us know at least a week before you are due to arrive.
