Stargazer cottage sits in the unspoilt region of the Indre, shimmering yellow fields of sunflowers rolling hills and beautiful rural countryside a haven for the keen walker, cyclist or wildlife enthusiast, and as the name suggests the location of the cottage is perfect to sit out on warm summer evenings and be mesmerised by the crystal clear skies with all the stars and constellations and even the Milky Way visible to the naked eye, only to be distracted by the shooting stars.
The cottage is perfectly situated only a short drive to the main road connecting you to either Boussac 14km away to the South. A pretty market town with banks, cafe's, bakery and general newsagent and two supermarkets plus several places that serve excellent food at excellent prices. Or head north on the same road and a ten minute ride brings you into Sainte-Severe-sur-Indre another small market town famous for Jacques Tati 1947 film the "Jour de fete".
The nearest main city is Le Chatre about a twenty minute drive, with excellent restaurants,shops,supermarkets and swimming pool all laid out on pedestrian friendly characterful streets.

Another great family day out is to make the trip to Pierres Jaumatre just outside Boussac with high wire adventure playground, outdoor laser quest, Children's play area, restaurant/ cafe bar.
A short walk takes you up to the spectacular giant granite stones view point. The vista is breathtaking as you stand next to the large granite stones moulded into fabulous shapes balanced on one another as the sunsets on the Indre valley.
