The cottage looks exactly like in the photos: nice, clean, with huge garden and has a working fireplace, if somebody feels cold. A car is a must. Valencay is 8 minutes away with a castle and small restaurants. The castle is perfect for a visit with kids because it is not so crowded and has a playground, small zoo and labyrinth. The other places like Beauval zoo or other castles are within 1 hour drive. The hosts are extremely uncomplicated und have a wonderful dog. Simply a perfect place for families.
