I live in the the South of England with my husband, 2 kids and our dog.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Owner chose Lathus-Saint-Rémy
We bought our lovely cottage so we could have somewhere for holidays and be able to take our newly acquired puppy. We wanted somewhere far enough south to get good weather in the summer, but near enough so we could drive in a (long) day from home. We also wanted somewhere near to airports so we have the option to fly for short trips. It has been a real joy. We have had great summers there playing in the garden and in the pool; larking about on the hammocks; cycling and visiting some charming towns and villages. We also love it in the winter, curling up beside the log burner after a chilly walk by the river, or watching some great DVDs.
What makes this Cottage unique
I love just lying in a hammock with a book and a glass of wine! And of course it's great discovering new restaurants, markets and shops. The kids love having a big garden, the trampoline to bounce on and a pool to play in. They like having empty roads to cycle along, swimming in the river and going horse riding. The dog likes new walks and a garden to sniff around. My husband just likes to potter and fix his bikes! And all our guests seem to think Chez Bobin is as magical as we do, judging from the great comments in our visitors book.

Lovely property with all amenities. A home from home feeling.
Relax and happy atmosphere.
Thank you - I’m glad you had a good time.
Great get away
Had a great 2 weeks at Chez Bobin, kids loved playing in the pool and around the big garden while we relaxed in the hammocks!! Great place to get away from it all, would definatly recommend for a get away from it all. You really do need a car to get around but that was fine with us. Great commuinication from Fiona from start to finish. Thank you!
Thank you. So glad you had a great time.
Really great holiday
The property does not disappoint in any way, photos look lovely but it is even better in real life. 2 children had a great time in the lovely gardens also big and secure for our dog
Pool is just the job and trampoline and hammock were enjoyed every day. Location is very private and you can enjoy music and wine with no chance of bothering a neighbour.
Glad you had a good time. Those are all the things we enjoy too!
Lovely property for a relaxing time away...
Very rural location but an easy drive to nearby towns & shops. Owners easy to contact if needed & provided plenty of information about house & local area. Would be lovely to stay in summer when warmer but log fire great in heating house when a bit colder at night.
We stayed in Chez Bobin in February 2019, the house is extremely comfortable, well equipped and in a lovely countryside location yet handy for amenities.
The beds are comfortable, 3 bedrooms, and the luxury of two public rooms makes it so easy on everyone. We found that the wi-fi was excellent as was the Sky setup, it actually worked well, Spain last year was a joke!
If in doubt just do it you won't be disappointed, this is a lovely place in a lovely area, we did not of course have use of the pool but it looked nice and the garden is spacious, I could see myself on a hammock in the summer, slung beneath the birch trees waiting for a bit of charred something off the barbeque.
Lovely relaxing holiday in the sun
We stayed in Che Bobbin for one week over the summer holidays and had an enjoyable stay. The kids loved the pool and trampoline and the dogs loved all the smells and lizards in the garden. The back garden was perfect for relaxing in the evening with a glass of local rose wine and cheese.
The house is perfectly situated for kayaking in the river, visit to the crocodile farm (a highlight for my 6 year old) and interesting villages. The only downside was that the wifi wasn't working so well.
There are several lake beaches in the area. Lake St Pardoux is about 45 minutes away - it has a lovely sandy beach, safe swimming and lots of water sports. In the summer there is plenty of swimming in the river 5 minutes away.
Ryanair fly from Stansted to Poitiers and Limoges which are both about an hour away. They also fly from Liverpool and Birmingham to Limoges. Flybe fly from Southampton to Limoges. Ryanair often have cheaper flights to Tours, which is about 2 hours away. The cottage is about 6 hours from Calais, and about 5 from Dieppe and Le Havre.
The nearest village, Lathus St Remy is about 5 minutes drive. Montmorillon, 20 mintues away, is delightful with lots of restaurants, cafes, a market and plenty of activities for adults and children. There a 12th century church, Octagon and Monastry and the world famous Macaroon Museum. The old towns of Bellac, Le Dorat, Chauvigny and Le Blanc are all near, with lots to explore and discover.
Futuroscope - a 21st Century attraction park devoted to films and images - is less than an hour away; so is a Monkey Sanctuary and a Reptile Centre. The monthly market at Les Herolles is the largest in the region and well worth a visit. As is the velo-rail at Chavingny where you 'cycle' along an old railway track 8km into the countryside and back. Bungee jumping, micro-lighting, motor racing and 4x4 off roading are all available close by.
