About the property

6 people, 3 bedrooms and fully equipped, fireplace, garden

This cottage was more than 350 years ago, the original farm where they lived together with the chickens and the goats. The animals have left and the farmhouse has been converted into a very cozy and rustic cottage with old restored furniture, which can accommodate 5/6 people. It is a pleasure to stay in the living room under the original oak roof beams! Here is also a large wood burning stove for the cooler evenings in spring and autumn. In the simple, but very complete kitchen you can prepare delicious meals, which at the old oak table or in the garden can be enjoyed under the big lime tree. If you want to come with more people this is possible as we can offer you 2 more houses (5 and 11 persons), B&B rooms, hikers cabin, lodge tents, gipsy wagon and a mini camping. Our property of 2,5 ha offers your many things, if wished, among others a pool, trampoline, acroparc, piste de petangue, volley bal and a bike- and kaiak rental. If wished you can also joint us at the table for a extensive breakfast or a delicious breakfast.

Whilst visiting a friend renovating a Dutch barge on the canal at Gannay Sur Loire we stayed for B&B at the Domaine du Bourg. Not the easiest place to find but well worth it when you do, Peter and Trudi provide a great welcome and a totally relaxed atmosphere.

We were out most of the day with our friends but took breakfast which was great content, plenty to eat and a very pleasant experience.

The rooms are basic but very clean and well looked after, many have been newly refurbished, toilets and shower clean and plenty of hot water and soft towels.

We enjoyed our stay very much and had our friend not moved his barge to the Soane near Beaune we would have been back at least twice this year without hesitation.

If you want to chill out and do nothing but laze by the pool and read, in a truly rural ambience this is the place for you!

Mooie woning dichtbij de Loire

  • 5 of 5

September 2016 hebben we de gite La Grue gehuurd.

Het is een mooie gite met alles er op en eraan.

Heerlijk dat de bakker zo dichtbij is. Iedere ochtend vers brood. Mooie omgeving om te wandelen . Dichtbij de loire. Bij de receptie verschillende wandel en fietsroutes te lenen. De eigenaar heeft ons geholpen bij het vinden van een andere gite voor onze tweede week.

About Peter

In 2001 we sticked everything we had in a big truck and drove to Gannay sur Loire where we started to transform and old farm, a Bourbonnais house and the barns and stables into accommodations to welcome guests.

The people from our village have welcomed us very friendly and very soon we felled excepted. After a couple of years of building all the accommodation, pool and mini camping were ready.

Peter purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Peter chose Gannay-sur-Loire

La Grande Grue is the oldest house from our propoery, with the restoration we discovered that the farm started with this house in 1640. When we started the house was a ruin, today everything is back into the original state, the old tomes (floor tiles), the oak beams and timbered walls are a beauty to behold.

What makes this cottage unique

Rural, the real french campagne you will experience with us. Together with the beautiful region, our pool, the magnificent river Loire (UNESCO) and our delicious table d'hôte your holiday will be almost complete.
