Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
"L'eau jolie" is a recently renovated rural cottage, set in beautiful countryside, within sight and sound of the river
Creuse. Downstairs is a large room for kitchen/dining and casual seating, a sitting-room (with flat-screen
satellite English TV, DVD player, books, DVD's, games and puzzles) and a shower-room with basin and toilet.
Upstairs are two good-sized double bedrooms, and a small bedroom with two single bunk beds. There is also a small room off the main bedroom with a wardrobe and washing machine. Less than one minute's walk away is a lovely area of the river set up for recreational swimming alongside a long stretch of parkland with play equipment and a kiosk. A canoeing and kayaking launching point can be found at this spot in the river, as well. Fishing is also permitted in this area. Walking and hiking is also very popular, with marked walking tracks throughout the countryside - one going past the cottage.
Argenton-sur-Creuse, a pleasant and interesting Medieval market town with all amenities, is less than 7kms away, but about half-way into town is a large supermarket with fuel supply, and also a nearby laundrette. (The baker's van stops at the cottage every mid-morning, with fresh bread, croissants and pastries... listen for the horn!)
