The Gite has been created from a feeding room in a stone barn. The
original features are still on show with the oak stalls and stonework
blending in to make a comfortable holiday environment. The
accommodation is for 2/4 people with a double bedroom and an open plan
twin room. There is a rear garden for barbecues/sunbathing/relaxing
and off road parking at the front.

The entrance leads you in to the open plan living dining area with
plenty of exposed beams and stonework.

Step up into the mid section between the vertical beams where once
cows would eat and you enter the kitchen and open plan twin bedroom.

Step through to the back and you will find a double bedroom, a super
bathroom with a multijet shower and access to the Gite garden.



The delightful market town of La Châtre was once a Roman camp or
‘ceastra’ from which it gets its name, there are one or two vestiges
such as the roman bridge that crosses the river Indre. There are also
numerous wonderful medieval buildings in the centre, which leads to
the market place where the Saturday market with dozens of stalls is a
definite must to visit. La Châtre also has five supermarkets (2 with
petrol stations), several boulangeries, patisseries, charcuteries plus
many traditional family owned shops that offer a full range of goods
and services. There are many restaurants, bars, a cinema with
occasional English films, fabulous swimming pool facility, and the
George Sand Museum.

For river or lake swimming there are a number of places to choose from:
Sidialles: A tranquil lake near Culan, here you can swim from a sandy
beach in safety under the watchful eyes of life-guards, hire pedaloes,
sailboards, or canoes/kayaks; take long walks around the lake or have
a meal or drink in the restaurant.
Eguzon: In the Creuse valley this site offers swimming, sailing,
water-skiing, sail-boards, plus fishing, tennis, riding, walking. You
can choose the calm lakes, lively rivers bordered by granite rocks, or
cool streams in wooded landscapes. There are plenty of places to eat
and drink too.
Chatelus-Malvieux: Another lovely lake for swimming from a sandy
beach. Barbecue areas are laid out and you can walk around the site
under the cool shade of its trees.
Herculat: Near Treignat, this lake offers swimming, fishing,
restaurant and bar.

There is a championship 18 hole golf course nearby. No handicap is
required. Concessions for over 60's.
